Default GP Spacewalker with what engine?

I just bought a Great Planes Spacewalker arf and am done building it, and i was wondering if any of you have an opinion on what the best engine for it would be. I hear that an OS 120 would work fine but i'm not sure if that will be powerfull enough, if someone could respond that would be great.

Default Go with the 120

I put a Saito 91 in mine first and it was a DOG. I swapped it out for a Saito 120 and was very pleased with performance. Be sure you go with 4-40 pushrods on everything. Remember It's A SPACEWALKER. You want some speed and power to get out of trouble but you don't want to overdo it. Enjoy, Pete
