Default Tiger Stick .46, Hoverable?

Hi,
I have a Thunder Tiger Tiger Stick .40 with a O.S. .46 on it. The other day I was out flying it and began to wonder " Can it hover?". I didn't dare try to hover it because it was the first flight and the motor wasn't all the way broke in. So, do you think it could hover if I tried it? I'm new to Nitro so I just thought I would ask. It did rolls and loops well with the O.S F.S. Surpass .48 4-Stroke that was in it and the .46 2-Strokehas way more power than the .48 4 Stroke did.
Thanks!

If the RTF weight is at or about 5 pounds, it will probably hover. You'll probably want a low pitch prop like a 12x4 or something similar. It won't be easy, but if your thumbs are up to the task and you don't give up, it's definitely doable.

I have a 11x5 on it right now and my Super Stick is great at hovering because it is a lot lighter.
