Thanks for previous help via questions and history research. This
helped me decide on a mustang kit 40 size from great planes. I hear
this kit is discontinued so snach them up if you like them.
My question is on which 4 stroke (Saito) engine to put in?
Has anyone used a .72 Saito (1.2hp) (or similar) and it is very
powerful in this plane, I am looking for a bit overpowered, like most
folks these days. This is my first choice because it meets factory
recommendations and I love Saito.
Has anyone used a .91 Saito (1.6hp) (or similar) and would the plane
be very out of balance, would it need lots of tail weight? This is my
second choice because more power is usualy more fun, although if I
have to add lots of weight then perhaps we are stealing from Peter to
I am just starting the kit, I may shorten fuse 1.5" to look more scale
so the as per research here. Seems like it should fly about the same.
I will add World models retracts.
I will cover aluminum coverite in a military scheme with a shark mouth
and invasion stripes, exactly not shure yet, still researching....
Any or all advise is welcome and asked for! :)
Thanks again, and have fun, Karl.
