I am looking at buying one of these engines. What is the thought out there. Are they good quality, good running, reliable? Please let me know ASAP.

Here's a video of my Twist with a Saito 72. It'll turn an APC 13x4W at 10,500 on 15% XP fuel. I bought it in the spring and I have been using it all summer. I has deadsticked a few times but it's been through no fault of the engine (ran out of fuel, etc). It always starts right up, idles so slow you can almost count the prop revolutions, and it never loads up. I wouldn't trade mine for anything. You will not be disapointed if you get one (although for 50$ more you can get the Saito 82 which is the same weight only more power). I have nothing but praise for this engine.
