I have all the parts needed to convert my 30v2 to a 50 on order. The last piece is the engine decision. What do you all suggest is the TT redline or the regular TT pro 50 any good?

I would personally go with the Redline 53 + hi flow 3D pipe combo of the 2 choices. The OS55 + powerboost pipe is very powerful combo. The OS 50 hyper + hatori or MP5 makes a very smooth running combo as well. Can't go wrong with any of those combos IMO. Happy flying with whatever choice you make!

beating the air into submission...........cool!

I like the TT 53 with the high flow pipe is a powerhouse but the old TT50 is a little hard to tune sometimes but very fuel efficient and down on power from its big brother 53 .

Oh what a feeling 3D Flying can be

If you can find a "new" regular TT50 for $80 or less, and your goal is only mild aerobatics, then go for it. The TT50 is a very efficient little engine, something to think about with todays fuel prices.

One trick to make them run consistent is setting the tank with an Uniflo vent system. The vent is done to a second line with a clunk just like the feed line. It works wonders on needle consistency.

Here is the reference:

The most bang for your buck would be os 50 with mp5 sb

I have to agree 100%. But is a much fuel thirstier combo than a TT50 and TT muffler.

side note:
Last year I open up the tranfer ports on my OS50hyp and it resulted in a noticeable diference in temperature and fuel comsumption, but this is not for the faint of heart (it involves reckles abandon and a dremel). Done the same on a OS91SZ and OS91SX SPEC with the same results.
