Default When was the first four stroke/four cycle motor for R/C?

I am trying to figure out when four stroke or four cycle motors were first introduced for R/C. Anybody recall what was released when? Anything before 1991?

You'd probably do better asking this in a nitro forum (or airplane), but OS had them in 1976.

The first 4 stroke marketed for r/c cars I recall was and O.S. (.40?) in the mid 90's.

Big 4 strokes in planes go back much longer...................
