Default RE: What engine for a H9 Cap 232 1.20(1/4 scale)

I've had 2 of these Caps (in fact, still have one of them)...and I've tried power all the way from a Saito 180, Zenoah G26, and OS 160...and I have to say the Saito 180 made for the best flying experience. It was the lightest of the bunch...which made for the lightest flying weight. Believe me when I say "weight is everything" on these planes. Just a few ounces makes the difference...it lands better lighter, and flys better lighter. With the 160 and G26, I had to move the tail servo's to the back of the plane....the additional weight made me think i was landing a freight train, not an airplane.

Both of mine were the first generation Cap's, and they would snap...but then again, that's what made them fun (as long as you're more than 15 feet off the deck!).

Keep it light, and you'll have soooo much fun.

Just my thoughts.
