Greetings,
I would use an OS .46AX.....its a great motor.....I have also heard good things about the Thunder Tiger Pro .46. I have 4 OS .46 AX motors though, and am extremely happy with them

Easy 2 uses a universal style motor mount.Has two bars that clamp the motor in place. You could put a 61 on it,and have room to spare
Biggest concern with the Easy 2 is the wing.I learned in the Easy 2,and destroyed three of them.Two were pilot error--last one the wing broke in half,and I lost the plane.
EPOXY the wing half's together,and wrap the center seam with fiberglass tape.I equipped mine with a Thunder Tiger Pro 46. Good Luck-----Amelia

Bang for the buck--Thunder Tiger Pro is a good choice.Make sure you get the Pro--They also sell a GP-42 I think--Make good ballast for your model boat
You can get a Thunder Tiger pro for about $70.00 if you shop around.--Comparable OS --OS-46 AX is about $115.00.Do a search in Forums,Glow engines--which one is best--never ending contest.I have a copy of every Pro they make,and they all perform great. East to start,and easy to tune--
Thunder Tiger Pro 36,40,46,61 ,& a pro 91 two stroke...Good luck---Amelia
