Default Modeltech Magic fun fly questions?

Have purchased a Modeltech magic fun fly ARF (the yellow one) and have also bought my first four stroke, a Magnum XL 52. Has anybody had any experience with this combination? How did You connect the throttle for the four stroke? How did you mount the engine (inverted, upright. sideways)? Any suggestions would be appreciated. I had a magic 300 L and love it.

i had the magic with a magnum 52 4 stroke. i mounted the motor at the angke they say too and used a dubro 4-stroke throttle bell crank system. it flew very good and hoverd great but going into tr's i had to be ready to jump on the throttle to keep it from falling too much. but over all it was a great combo!!!

if you have anymore questions feel free to ask

i mounted the servos were the book recomended. which if i can remember was in the fuse under the wing. i'm pretty sure it weighed about 5.5 pounds. it flew great, would be in the air at half throtle!!!! i didn't have any balance issues!!
