Convert an electric. I did with this Seagull Extra with a OS.15CVA and a 4oz tank. The options are limitless. Tons of planes to choose from.

If its speed you want, I think their is a .10 size Shrike

A .15 would be twice the recommended engine for one of the Sig Little Extra ARFs, I'm flying one with electric power (E-Flite Power 10) but in my opinion the Little Extra @ $65 from either Sig or Tower is very hard to beat.

I wouldn't consider the Extra a speed plane... the .10 size shrike is a good choice...

That wiz 15 looks like it might be a good one for that little engine.

Maybe you could find a Lanier 1\2 A pylon racer. That should go pretty good with a .15. I forgot what they call them...Dominater?

The Lanier dominater is a kit though, not available as an arf. Think I'll probably go with the Wiz unless somebody comes up with somethin else pretty quick.....

I put an OS 15 in my Little Extra and love it... I added a larger fuel tank and get about 10 min. of flight.... it is sweet.... the .15 really makes it sing...

I have a Wiz 15 ready for its first flight. Been ready for about 6 months. Life keeps getting in the way. Easy build. Very light. Should really move. LA .15. Will try to fly before Christmas. I will post my results.

I was going to suggest the Lanier 1/2A pylon plane too. It isn't an ARF, but how hard is it to build a box with 4 sides and assemble a foam wing? If it was an ARF, by the time you moved the firewall back, peeled off the sub standard covering and beefed up the wimpy construction, you would have been better off slapping together the 12 pieces of wood in the kit to better meet the needs of your modified plane.
