Default MOJO 60 Engine Choice

I am building a Mojo 60 right now and need to purchase the engine for it. I know the Saito 100 is the most popular choice for this plane. My question is, what do you guys think about putting a Saito 125 in there? Has anyone flown it with the 125? I wouldn't mind some power to 'rocket' out of hovers. Any opinions would be appreciated!

My MoJo 60 has the ''hunnert and honestly, it''s ridiculously over-powered, which is just about perfect. While the plane will handle the few extra ounces, it''s simply not necessary if you only want more power. If you already had the 125 laying around and didn''t want to buy the ''hunnert, I''m sure it would be OK, but since you have yet to buy an engine, don''t hesitate to get the 100.

ryback:

Have YS 110, 17/4 on mine, way overpowered even for my power crazed needs. For both the Mojos, thing the lightest will be the best. It handles the weight well, but thing they would fly better with the lightest setup you can come up with. Will be sticking a older Rossi I have laying around inm it in the near future. ENJOY

If you have as 125 lying around, just get the Mojo 65 from Paul and save the Mojo 60 for the 100 you need to buy next.

I used to have a Saito 100 in a Funtana 90. (8.5 lb plane). Boy was that a mistake.

Then I put it on my Mojo 60 (5.5 lb plane). With a plain Jane Zinger 15x6 it launches out of hover faster than any of my 40 size birds.

What BuildFlyCrash said. It''s a match made in heaven.
