Default Old Altech PC-6

Guys, I hate to bring up an old ARF/out -of-production plane, But the argument here in the shop says that a Saito .82 wont be enough power to get this 10 pound plane into the air with any authority. I'm at 4500 feet alt here in Logan. Would anyone care to make just a few comments about this. This is almost non-sense. Thanks, MM

I used to fly one all tricked out with flaps, lights, under-wing fuel tanks (scale) and a OS 91 4-stroke and it flew great.
I think a 80 4-stroke will fly it OK, mine had a couple extra pounds on it.
