I bought the Legato and can answer all your questions.

To make a very long story short, get the standard or the deluxe
with a 30 or 46 sized engine.

Do not get the Legato with the four stroke engine.

This is not just my opinion, but also the opinion of several others
that I have been in contact with that have also purchased the Legato.

I confirm previous posts.  I had nothing but trouble with the four
stroke engine.

I eventually re-did the power train for an OS 32.

Now works perfectly.  2 stroke is the way to go.

Ok,

It vibrates waaay too much, this is a characteristic of four strokes.

Because it's a four stroke, and the high compression, you will go through
starter shafts like popcorn!

The stock muffler that comes with it WILL vibrate off (a new one is $60)

The stock flex header pipe WILL crack from vibration.

The 30 or 46 is much smoother & cheaper.

They created the Legato option for people who like the sound of four
strokes.

Now, I still have the Legato, BUT, I and the others I've spoken to would not
make the same mistake again.

Heard lots of bad press about the Legato.  In essence, it's a Nexus 46
Deluxe with a 4-stroke OS-52.

RPMs are lower in the four-stroke than most expect.  Also, you'll get MUCH
more power for aerobatics out of the OS-46 2-stroke than the Legato.

Another issue is that many modellers are not familiar with the proper setup
of a 4-stroke engine and spend hours trying to tweak it to perform.  Unless
you DOTE on 4-stroke engines, the Nexus 46 or Concept 46VR would be a much
better choice.
