Default Size Matters

Hi all! Iam new to RCU. I just bought a 1/4 scale Chipmunk,and need some help sizing the motor.The plane weighs about 23.5lbs with servos only. I am not into 3d at this point.What would be a good choice for a power plant?Thanks for your help.

My initial thought would be a DA60 or DLE-55 RA

My Sbach 3D's at just short of 18lbs on a DLE-55 with a Falcon 23x9 carbon. The 60 turns a 24B quite well and has more power.

For scale aerobatics that sounds like a good match
