i had both tt50 and os50, the tt50 is good for the money but the os50 gives so much more power and grunt,i havent had any bearing problems with my os50 and neither has my dad with his os50, personally i prefer the os50.

but if money is an issue then the tt50 is the way to go, for the price i dont think it can be beaten.

but 3d pilots will luv the extra grunt that the os50 gives
does it have better characteristics than the tt39?
i have never owned a tt39 so i cant comment on that

but once setup correctly the tt50 is a very reliable engine, the same can also be said about the os50

TT50 is a lot less fuel hungry than the os 50 and has plenty of power to do 3D with the raptor and sceadu.

I`ve had problems with 3 TT50`s (one being mine, one my dads and one from a friend)

On mine the head went loose.... all of a sudden after 3 months of flying and many gallons... the engine got to hot and cooked, killing the piston&ring and headgasket. rebuilt the engine and bought an OS50 which I`ve been flying hard for about a year now and NO problems whatsoever...

The one in my dads helicopter had the bearing cage failure... and a few months after that a big chunk of piston fell of so that had to be replaced. After a year of TT misery he also opted for a OS50 which he has been flying for the past few months and NO problems anymore, easy to adjust...

The one in my friends helicopter also experienced the loose head syndrome of the TT50 but we caught it on time, also was this engine very hard to adjust and never ran reliable, it didn`t flame out.. but it was always or running rich.. or running lean. You guessed it, he also got an OS50 and that one is running fine....

No it wasn`t a tuning problem with the TT50`s, I`ve been flying models for 7 years now (planks... last 2 years heli) so I think I know when it`s not properly tuned.

IMHO you should get an OS50...

Cheers,

Rich

I have been running the TT50 after almost 3 gallons and it is still running pretty good. I never had a problem with it yet. It doesn't suck up a lot of fuel. I get about 14 minutes to a tank.

There is a new os 50 coming out that makes a little more power than the old sx 50 but i bet it willcost a few pennies more than the sx-h 50. the os 50 makes a little more power than the tt 50. the tt 50 drinks a lot less fuel than the os 50. If your not into hard 3d and just paracticing or flying around get the tt 50. no hassle and runs like a champ. havn't heard any thing wrong unlike the os 50 bearing problems. I ran both and I just parctice and fly around and the only difference i could detect is the tt used less fuel which means more flying time which means more practice time between fuel ups

The metal head helped out a lot on the old V1 series but you won't seemuch of a difference with the V2. Maybe if you are doing some serious 3d ****. BUT FOR JUST FLYING AROUND AND MILD 3D.....DOUBT IF YOU WILL TELL A DIFFERENCE ON THE v2
