Default Ringmaster Jr. Flash & ED 2.46 Racer??

Hi All:

How well would this combination perform for sport flying? I think that this would be a great combination for sport flying!

The Ringmaster Jr. Flash has a 30" span and a built up body. I flew one with a Fox .15BB and found that it did not have enough wing area for a 6.5 oz. engine during maneuvers. Yes it was very fast!

Comments?
Tia,

An ED246 would be heavy for the Flash. I built and flew 2 of those in my modelling career and both were flown with a Fox 15X. They balanced perfectly and were a lot of fun on 52/55 lines.
They were reasonably fast and a lot of fun going through the old time pattern. Tank space is limited and that would favor the ED but I would not use it for the above reason
