Default Nitroplanes F-86??

Anyone bought this new propjet from Nitroplanes yet??
It's a BIG airframe guys. I don't know what powerplant in 2 stroke size will scream and bring it into the 120mph club. I'm thinking of finding this home for my OS160, but that's a torque engine, not a screamer.

idunno....

that thing is about the same size as the old Byron F-86 ducted fan model. Mighty big.

only thing that comes to mind would be the OS160 with a pipe on it.... maybe a Webra 120 RE ?

I'm new to ducted fan but do have Byrojet, Dynamax, and BVM fans in the shop. I'm waiting to see what flying weight is to justify putting a fan in one. Will need to keep flying weight around 12 lbs for good performance. These fans only put out 13-14 lbs of thrust.
