Had an OMP Edge-540 profile with a .55-AX. it was outstanding. Pretty much any .40 size airplane and it'll work great.

OMP Edge or Yak, Mojo40 if you like profiles. GP Ucando , GP Reactor, Sig Mayhem to name a few but there are alot of good choices out there.

omp yak or edge, swanyshouse Mojo 40 or Primo 40, EF Chinn Yak, value hobbies Sabre 47. For real 40 size 3d i would stay away from the ucantdo or pretty much any other full fuse birds. They have to high of wing loading to fly well and they are pretty much one dumb thumbs away from bringing it home in a trash bag. Alot of ppl cant get over the looks of profiles but i know im flying for fun and i dont thing it gets any better than a good slab.

DING! DING! DING!
Nitrofevr's advice is right on the mark.

I've got four 55AX engines in 3D profiles and they work great!
Primo 40
EF Chinn Yak
OMP Katana 46
PA Bad Boy

Note: All of my 55AX engines needed an OS F plug to make them 100% reliable for 3D on the deck.

Here's my OMP Edge 540 with a .55 AX. Very happy with the combination.

I also say the profiles are awesome for small glow motors. Any of the ones mentioned here will fly circles around the other 3D planes in the .40 size.

I have a feeling I am not the only SPAD guy who dabbles in the balsa world.

I like the APC 13x4 prop.

Here's a video of my Primo 40 with a 55AX and an APC 13x4 prop. Lots of fun!
