    RE: 55 ax enough power?

    Power is fine .....reliability on the 55AX is not the greatest..... go with the 61 AX or FX.


    It is a "temperamental" engine which runs great when properly tuned (You will need to adjust the low & high end adjustments)

    We're not familiar with the airplane. If it has a light wing loading, then the .55 AX will be fine. If it's a warbird-style airplane, or a sport-pattern type, then you may need more power.
