All engines are worth trying for stunt and actually is a lot of fun. But, that said, the Saito is SO vastly superior for control line use it ain't funny. On Ebay recently, a slightly used Saito 56 went for over $180 dollars with dozens of bidders!! Other then the Saito, the OS Max 52 Surpass is the only other one I would play with.

I TOTALLY agree with what Milton said about the SAITO engines.
They are without a doubt the best for CL stunt*.
If you want to go big, the 72 is awesome. I consider the SAITO 30 the absolute best small 4S on the market. If you want to go a bit larger, try the SAITO 40.
HOWEVER, the ENYA engines are a very close second.
In particular, the ENYA 46 is an outstanding powerplant - I have been using the ENYA 46 and 53 for years and as far as I'm concerned, the 46 is close in performance to the Super Tiger 60.
And, of course, the OS Surpass 52 is fine and as far as I'm concerned, the best OS for stunt.
I have owned every Surpass up to and including the 70.
The Surpass 40 is the worst 4S engine I've ever used.

Is your 65 the magnum XL 65 AR? Attached a pic for reference.
The magnum 65 weighs approx. 620gr or 21.8oz
The magnum 52 weighs approx. 445gr or 15.7oz

The magnum 65 and 72 was built in basically the same case (latest version). The 65 AR is a real power house and reliable engine for that size class. But, seeing the weight is why people opted for either the larger or the smaller models.

I'd run that Enya all day if I was you. That's a nice engine.

And I'd love to argue Bob Zambelli about the os 40 surpass... but all my research and experimenting with them has proven him right. Lol
