Default Good use of AX 120 ??

Like the title says, I have an AX 120 that I'm looking to find a plane for. I fly 3D type flying (or try to) and am trying to figure out what's a good plane for that engine size. ??

One of the best 3D combinations I have seen is an OS 120 AX in a Seagull Ultimate 90. Put an APC 17x6 prop on it and enjoy.......

Funtana for sure. I have a Funtana X100 and love it with the 1.20ax


Or what about the OMP Fusion if looking for profile?

Skybolt! Been using the 1.20 AX in this plane for the past three years and it still pulls hard and flys great.

The OMP 67" Fusion will out fly every thing else posted above hands down. Big statement I know, but it can back it up. If you really want to learn 3D this plane will speed that process along. Plus it will sport and pattern fly. A lot of profiles wont.

I like it!!! What mods did you have to do to use the 120? Fuel Tank Size? How did it balance with the 1.20?

I had a 40 size Fusion and liked it but the 90 size is too spendy for my blood. [X(]

It's not cheap for sure.( one of the drawbacks of dealing with a small company I guess) I have the ARF and the kit. Both cost about the same with the accessories. It's money well spent IMHO. I have been flying for 20 years. I have flown two planes in that time frame that are better than the 67" Fusion. Both were much larger gassers. So for what it's worth, if you can swing it, you wont be sorry.
