    YS-63S: Airframe suggestions?

    I have a YS-63S I bought thinking it was a good replacement for a 40-sized engine. I was going to put it in a Four Star 40 that I've about finished, but I think it would be too much power for that plane. Now I'd like to find a home for the YS-63. I'd like to fly mostly IMAC/Pattern with it. I love the look of the Yak-54, but haven't really found an appropriate body for this engine. I'm most interested in an ARF.

    Along the same lines, what weight plane is the best match for this engine for IMAC/Pattern flying? I'm guessing it's a good match for a 50-sized plane. Is that about right?

    Thanks for the help!

    I put mine in the old Funtana .40

    Thought this plane would only work for Basic in IMAC as its not really a Katana.

    I was considering the Funtana X 50. Does anyone know how this compares to the old FuntanaS 40 by Hanger 9? I liked that plane a lot.

    Perfect fit for an OMP Fusion 52. Would be great combo and perform precison well with the CG adjusted correctly. Pretty durable airframe as well.

    RE: YS-63S: Airframe suggestions?

    After some more research, I've decided to go with the Extreme Flight 58" Extra 300 with the glow conversion kit. The color scheme I'd like is out of stock, so I'll have to wait for that, but I'll post feedback here as I eventually get that set up.
