You'll add a lot of weight... ...and you'll have to put more weight in the tail.

The YS120 should rocket-proppel it.
But a little on the heavy side.

With the YS120 you'll need the servos in the tail. Double pull pull is lighter, but you'll end up with lead in the tail.

I went with 2.75° right on the Saito 125. Spot-on.
