Depends on your flying style...But a Flying Machine is a sweet plane for that motor.

If you want to do a kit, and Ultra Sport would be an excellent choice (if you can still find a 40-size)

Cannot go wrong with a Sig Cougar, Kaos or a Qwic-Fly...

well I decided to scratch build a blue flash that fly rc had in the magazine....I enlarged it from a 50 inch wingspan to a 58 inch...the 50inch flys with a os 25 fp so I figure this thing should burn it up...
