Default Engine for Goldberg Extra 300

We were talking about the Goldberg Extra 300 at our field the other day and the main topic of our conversation was which engine is the most popular for this bird. Ive heard of engines as small as a .61 all the way up to the 180 class 4 strokes being used. Personally my favorite choice would be the Saito 150, but anyway i would appreciate everyones comments and opinions
Ive listed as many engines as i could think of and if i missed your choice please post which one and vote in the other column. Thanks Rickey

Rickey I would go with a Saito 120. The only other thing is cost if the 120 and the 150 are very close go with the 150. The plane likes power. I had a freind who built one with a 61 in it. It barely flew. He put a Supertiger 90 in it. It then flew well. I think a 120 or a 150 would do it. If you like the Saito 150 then by all means get one. Rule #1 it's your plane, do what you want. Good luck.

I didn't vote, cause I don't know. I CAN say that my dad had one with an OS 91 and it flew quite well, but personally, I would prefer more power.

The one thing I WILL say is that I would go with a 4 stroke... no question about that.

YS 110, saito 120 or 150
