Never had a 4 stroke but flew 2 stroke on sport plane in Florida.  It preformed ok but reliability I would rate at 80% as it would occasionally quite in flight. I put lots of flights on it and I felt it wore out too quickly.

Thanks for the info Cliff , will keep it mind , I was going to by a 50 size TT Four stroke for my Carl Goldburg Comet Sailplane 1940 style , use it for short runs up to about 500 ft. and soar with it , nice relaxing flying  .
