The 1.20 is pretty heavy with way more torque than what the .60 US was designed for. We also had problems with ground clearance due to the large prop the 1.20 requires. The .65AX with tuned pipe makes this plane a rocket yet flies like a dream.

Thanks for the input, I was thinking this motor might weigh too much.
