Don't know about the reedy engine, but the P5 has never let me down in like 6 years. Had a few of them....It's not a set it and forget it engine, but if you listen to it, it will tell you what to do....

Neither is hard to tune. OS is no easier. I have both. understanding what it's telling you is the key.

The GRP's tuned different than others. The Nova Rossi/RB/Reedy/OS are all pretty easy to tune. Some react to small carb adjustments quicker. The tuning bible on here should help quite a bit. I havn't read it so I don't know exactly what is in it.

In my team we run 2 different brands of engines: Ninja JX and SH engines. Ninja JX as the "top engine" and SH as the cheap alternative. I run the Ninja engine (which is an OS), and I pit (and tune) a SH. While they both a pretty easy to tune (if you know what you are doing), the Ninja JX holds that tune the entire day - while the SH needs to be re-tuned a couple of times a day.
