Post First Time Build: Engine Suggestions

Building for my first time and I would prefer to stay away from a kit and just take a motor from a chainsaw, weed eater, leaf blower or something.

Anybody with experience have any pros/cons on various engines. I've heard there are inherent problems with chainsaws (can't idle with engine running, can that be avoided with a different engine)

I think I'd prefer a 4-stroke (quieter, less smoke/smell). Let me know your experiences!
