Your .70 FS will pull it faster and with better vertical than most
.50 sized engines. However, why would anyone opt for a high performance Jett
engine or similar in a sport trainer model?
If you are new to four strokes, I have an article on "The Care &
feeding of Four Strokes" at my Web Site that you might find informative.

4 strokes vs 2 cycles:
Its as much of an attitude, as it is a performance issue. There is no
other way to explain why someone will pay $175 for a 4 stroke when a
$75 2 cycle will do the same job.
I currently own 3 Saito and love them.
In rc planes, the order of priority is:
1. Is it pretty?
2. Does it sound good?
3. How does it fly?
4. What does it cost?

Frankly, I'd keep the Pro 46 in the Tiger and get either a Sig Kougar or GP
Tracer for the hot 50, or a CAP 232 or similar for the 70 four-stroke.
If it's a sport engine, it would be appropriate to put it on a sport

1. Does it fly well?
2. How much does it cost?
3. Does it have a high fun/cost ratio?
4. How quickly can I get it flying?
5. Is it pretty?
6. Does it sound good?
