so far runs great one little issue` Review by Tripacer
Rating
got mine up and running today for the first time in 50 years of modeling i followed the instructions on how to break it in even went and bought a NEW gallon of fuel set up as per instructions fired right up was WAY to Rich (would quit if you pulled plug wire off) leaned it out till the HIGH SPEED NEEDLE Bottomed out but at least you could pull the wires off and it would stay running ran a whole tank through (10 OZ) decided to figure out why it would run so rich with the HS needle seated took all apart and came to the conclusion the Needle was BENT and would not screw all the way down with out binding borrowed one out of my Magnum 46 2 stroke and now after 3 tanks i can adjust the needle all the way in or out and i think its time to go fly this beast
im giving it a 3 star for the bent needle have sent an email to there Service dept will see how good the service is should be a slam dunk just replace needle (Posted on 4/19/14)

Michel, our apologies for out of stock parts. Please know the crankshaft is now in stock. Matt


91 magnum in super skybolt .Flies great, engine all you need,smooth and steady.. Less than 2 hrs. running time suddenly stops . Remove engine from plane and remove back plate.. Crankshaft pin sheered off as if cut with a laser! 13 month old engineso no warranty. Tried to obtain a replacement part with no luck.that was 4 months ago.. now its December and still no parts..Stick with Saito and O.S. . Mike Melendy, Blue Max R/C flying Club (Posted on 12/2/13)
most reliable engine Review by tom

I have about 8 flights only on this Magnum 91 FS but it has never quit in the air or in idle at taxi in or out. This is m ore than I can say for my Saitos and OS 4 cycle engines. I also have 2 Magnum 52 4 cycles and the are the same for starting and for reliabilty. (Posted on 11/29/13)

This is my second engine. The crankshaft broke on both after about 75, 10 minute flights.The first time I crashed my plane, the second time i was luckiy because I was still on the bench. the engine runs great but this is a dissappointing flaw. (Posted on 9/26/13)

First Glow Engine Review by x-electric
Rating
My first Magnum .91 would not run very well after break in. It didn't seem to respond to needle valve adjustments and the needle turned very hard. I removed the high speed needle valve and found some debris inside like chunks of o-ring but the o-rings looked fine. Cleaned everything out and then I could get it set up and it ran wonderfully :-). I have owned this engine for over a year now with no problems at all. Starts very easily. I use a starter motor without using the choke (much less messy). So I removed the choke lever as it just gets in the way. I have the engine mounted horizontally in a Great Planes Escapade 60 and have been flying this setup going on the second season now. Starts great, idles great, has plenty of power, and what a bargain! (Posted on 4/30/13)
First one Review by So far so good
Rating
I'm an OS guy but always am looking for a bargain. I have a lot of engines, including OS, YS, Super Tigre, Thunder Tiger, and a couple of mongrels. So far so good with my new Magnum 91. it started slobbering rich following the directions. I couldn't get it to hold on even using the Sullivan on board glow. it finally ran and held on at about 1 1/2 turns open on the main. Break-in was OK. It ran out a couple of tanks and it seems like it will be a strong runner. It even gave me a good smokey idle. The heat being on at high trim helped. Confidence is high,will report back after the maiden and a few other flights. I bought this on sale for $130! Now that's a bargain! (Posted on 1/15/13)
A great engine! Review by RON

I have a few Magnum engines, One of the Vegas store managers was a store manager, we were flying one day and I was using a different but one of the top brands of 4 strokes, It always gave me problems with the low end from flight to flight. He asked me to buy the 91, he wanted more flying info first handed, I bought it on sale and did the recommended break in exactly, He wanted to follow everything in the directions. I was flying a Global ultimate Bi-plane and the 46 that I had in it just wasn't getting it, I decided to install this engine in it, (It came out a little tail heavy anyway and this engine balanced it just right) I ran it pretty rich for a few days, we flew every morning. After just about half of a gallon I started leaning it out. Doing it as my 40 years in the hobby taught me. Nose in the air. I demand quick throttle response, smooth throttle response and good idle that I could depend on out of my engines
I fell in love with this engine, I had more power than the Ultimate needed but it was and still is fun. I don't remember when the first Hobby store opened in Las Vegas NV. but this is engine is still in service in the same Plane.

I now have a couple of 52 4-strokes and a few 2 stroke engines none of which I would part with. I don't pay the high price of some of the other engines, Hobby People prices it's engines so the every day flier can buy them and I do not or ever have seen a difference in Magnum in retrospect to the High cost engines. You can"t go wrong with this and the other Magnum engines.. Take the plunge, You'll be happy you did.

Great engine at a great price Review by HPDriver
Rating
My first 4 stroke engine. Replaced a Super Tigre .75 in a Hangar 9 Spitfire MKII 60. Throttle arm on the same side so basically a drop in. Startled me by starting on the first flip. Starts and runs as good or better than any engine I have had in 50 years of model activity. Liked it so well I purchsed a Magnum RFS .52 for my Kaos .40. Same experience as the RFS .91. Usually one flip starts and flawless performance. Thank you Hobby People for great products at great prices. (Posted on 10/26/12)
