Default Small plane big engine . what happens next!!!

Hi Guys,
What happems when you put a 46LA on a 25 size ship with a 45 inch wingspan.
The Wl is already on the higher side with the 25FP?

The wing loading usually goes way up due to the extra weight. Higher wing loading means higher stall speed, so the plane must be flown faster, especially to prevent tip stalls in turns. It's also require landing much faster for the same reason.

It may be a real bear to fly.

The question is why would you do it. If you are looking for more speed buy a webra 32. Better yet get a norvel 25, light and very fast. It would blow the socks off a 25FP

i second the above post- a 46la is no ball of fire and probably not a lot more powerful than a webra 32, if at all.
it is just increasing wing loading- it would be manageable if you are quite an able flyer-have fun!
