Default Kit for a YS 120

I am currently flying a 60 US and a Goldberg Extra 300 with a 1.08 Mag in it. One of the club members has a 120 ys for sale and I need some help picking a home for it. I enjoy sunday sport flying and am not ready to try a warbird yet. I also fly Suitcase's Twist 3D and his 120 US with a G-26.

Here are a few ideas some may be ARFs but nice planes regardless besides you can always recover them if you don't like the stock colors.

Extreme Flight; Yak:54 - 68"
Carl Goldberg: Sukhoi SU-31
Cermark: Pitts S2B
Great Planes: Super Stearman

An engine like that would sure go into a pattern plane nicely and man those fly great.

I am building a GP Super Skybolt but feel this engine would be overkill. The OS 120 I'm installing is already considered overpowered. I shutter to think what a YS would do, you would never advance past 1/2 throttle

Thanks, I do like the Cermark Pitts as an ARF and I had thought about the Su 31 kit also.
