Default Good engine choice for Cutlass Prop jet


I want to know what is good engine choice for this Global Hobbies Cutlass prop jet.

Webra 61 Long stoke

or

OS 55AX

It has pretty thin airfoil and quite a bit of swept back. I am thinking on adding rudders on it also if it's beneficial.

Hey Props!

I still have my Cutlass and had used a GMS .46 with a 10x6 and 11x6 APC and Master props.... When the GMS was running right it was fast but ... I am now using the OS 55AX in my F-16 and F-18 and find that it has TON of power that would really move the Cutlass along very well

You may want to try that and if be move up to the .61........ You will also find that the cutlass is very nose heavy so with a small block up front you can keep it light.

Cheers
