Default RV - 4 .40 4 StrokeEngine Size ?

Dear RCU Members,

I am considering buying a Great Planes RV - 4 .40 kit. I have a Saito .65 Four Stroke engine that I am considering using in the RV - 4. Has anyone out there used a Saito .65 Four stroke engine in this plane? If so, how does it fly with that engine? Does it show any bad habbits in flight? Thanks for your help !

I used an OS 48 FS in mine and it flew very scale like - I liked it! Your 65 should be able to do more vertical than mine - so ....go for it!

PS Don't forget to get fiberglass parts for it, especially the cowl!!!!
