Doubtful, Horizon says they're not shipping until next month. I'm expecting it to be trash, much like their glow plane motors.

That's just it, $190, why would anyone choose that over the Hyper?

I believe the guy who runs Raptor Tec. is getting one. I think they look pretty cool, a little more stylish, I really like the crankcase.

A good looking engine ain't much good if the internals are crap

But if they pay that much attention to the detail, they could have fixed the internals. A crap sandcasting no matter how well engineered is still crap. I don't think for the price of motors these days that they pay enough attention to detail. My 8 year old OS 61 flies my Raptor 60 nice enough and has enough power to pull my camera rig around the sky. I think most modern engines, with quality as at least some though will fly decently.

Well, the plank ones have the same design and are also very nice looking engines, and they are not well made. I hope these turn out to be good, OS needs some serious competition. I'm just not getting my hopes up.

They have already shipped. There is one sitting at the LHS. We checked to make sure it was mount and muffler compatible to the OS engines. Haven't seen one in action yet.

Our LHS had one in and the owner put one in his new metal Knight 50. He said it made ridiculous power but had a problem with the carb and yanked it out in favor of a trusty old OS-SX. He said the Knight flew incredible but the engine was giving him fits and yes, he knows how to tune an engine or two. Moral of the story, Knight good, Evo 52 bad (at least, this one was).

Personally, I have one of their plank engines in my Cap232 and it has been extremely reliable for me. Kinda funny how its opposite of the way it should be. My friends who all have OS 46ax plank engines have all had the sleeve problem but my Evo has run great. I guess it all boils down to if you get lucky and get a good one or not b/c some people hate the plank engines.

^^Or even a non-hyper carb. It would still be more powerful just due to the larger displacement.

My father is starting a hobby shop and his guy is going to give me one to try out since I'm that clubs "Heli Guy". Don't have it yet but when I get it its going into a Raptor 50 V1. I can compare it to my V2 which has an OS Hyper in it. I do know one thing, the first thing I'm going to do to it is take off the carb adjustment limiter. They tend to be a problem on the smaller plank engines.

the only limiter is a tiny roll pin on the high speed needle that can be cut or ground off.the low speed needle is a thumb screw not a bad idea no tools needed for tuning.you can also leave the roll pin and still get past it

I just received mine from Horizon Hobby last Thursday. I installed it on my run-up stand just to start and try out. It would not start. The fuel wouldn't draw into carb. I took engine apart and found there was no rear cover gasket and the red oring on carb was in the bottom of the hole in case and not on carb throat( that goes in engine crankcase hole like most carb orings are. Both needle valves were completely closed even though the manual said this engine was factory tested. I know for a fact it couldn't have been with the air leaks it had. I am sending back to horizon Tuesday for new replacement. This engine is made in China. I new I should have just bought the OS50 Hyper like I have in my other Raven Heli, but I thought I would like to try some new technology.
So the verdict is still out. Sure not a good way to start. I hope Horizon takes care of this problem. I told them I wanted them to check over the next engine before they ship it to me.
