I would also agree with Craig that with my experience with Gen 3 with older P-120's and now a Gen 5.5 P-140 Rxi's the 140's work very well with this airframe. I too had a flame out with the Gen 3 in the air and didn't realize the flame out until I was in the pattern on downwind. It definitely got a lot more draggier but still a non event when it came up to landing, just increase the airspeed a little more. Can't relate yet to Craig on the an engine out on take off scenario, thank goodness, but glad to know it can work.
This aircraft was originally designed with 80's in the earlier generations, so maybe we are overpowering them somewhat.
