I never did understand this extreme concern with `overpowering' something.
Sure, it can fly in a very non-scale way, and perhaps it can go so fast that the airframe can't take it if you pull back on the stick all the way or something, and perhaps it can fly with a lot less power, but beyond that, what's the problem?
Unless you're in a scale competition, I just don't see the problem ... most of us fly for fun, and if flying around with just enough power is fun, great!, and if flying around with 4x as much power as you need is fun, great too!
Speaking of being overpowered, I was trying the RFG3 Expansion pack
1's `Hotliner' glider at the hobby store the other day. THAT thing is grossly overpowered! In hand, the simulator said it was drawing 2000 watts at full power (and around 1000 watts in flight), and when you let go it would go straight up at 90 mph! (Or do level flight at 100 mph -- obviously a smaller prop and maybe a higher pitch prop/lower gearbox ratio would be appropriate if you wanted it to be a racer.)
Not that this was a problem, but I was just amazed at the performance. I wonder if many people really have planes like that with quite that much power. I guess it makes sense, when your contest only allows 30 seconds of power ...
