Cannonball200--Wow, you really want to hand a Brison 2.4 on this guy? I've got a Brison 2.4 on my big Dave Patrick Edge 540T. That thing swings an APC 20x10 at 7850 RPM static. My Edge has unlimited vertical and hangs on the prop at around 1/3 throttle. The Edge weighs in at 15 lbs and is a much more substantial airframe. I'm curious to see how yours would hold up to that big of an engine on such a small airframe.
Ok, Dave Patrick makes two edge 540's, on is the 40% which I doubt the 2.4 will power, the other is the 79" span version. This plane is 70" span and has two wings...
The specs give similar weight range, the stearman has MORE wing area. The GP Patty is flying (aerobatics) with 50cc engines...seems the 2.4 should be ok on this.
