Default Speed plane for a Saito 100

I know a 2 stroke is preferred for speed planes, but I have a Saito 100 and would like to put it in something that will give me a fair amount of speed. The only thing I am seeing is the Little Toni from GP. Are there any other planes that I should look at?

Default RE: Speed plane for a Saito 100

Thats a good choice. One guy here has the 100 in a Shoestring. Moves pretty good. I have the 100 stuffed into a .40 size wm P-51 running a 12/12 prop. The little Toni will give you some room to work with, My setup is like having a .454chevy engine inside a Dodge Neon. Not much room in their.. I'd go with your Toni.

I have many engines and the 100 is my first fourstroke. Strange engines. Sort of like trying to figure out women. You dial them in by rpm, not peak rpm as a two stroke and picky "sob's when it comes to props. Takes time to bring it together.
