Default 3DHS 57" Suk vs AW Yak/Extra

Any one have any input on this one?

Will be powering one with either a 2 stroke OS .91FX or 4 stroke Saito .91

3DHSrecs the Saitto .82 but Ihave a beatiful little .91 with no airframe.

Mark at AWsays that the Yak and Extra both will be fine with the .91FX

Living in Denver I am "lucky" enough to experience high density altitudes.....no big deal but Ineed a little extra punch to be able to hover thus the big engine (s)

Ilike flying like a fool (currently flying a CG SUK with a 40cc gasser and a Sig Sumpin Extra with a .46FX on it). Both are great, just want to fly something new. Trying to learn new 3D stuff and trying to get into IMAC. Very comfortable flying in all attitudes, just trying to put everything into a recognizable sequence.

Thanks in advance,

On of the 3DHSrecomendded enginesis .60 2 stroker, Ibelieve that Saito 91 will not be heavier. If you want this model for 3Dflying than 3DHSSukhoi probably is better choice.

The saito 91 weights the same as a os 70, (sure less than any 60 2 stroke) and has A LOT more power, 15x4w apc, 20/20 and a 12oz tank and you will be happy

You should be fine with the Saito 91 on the 3DHS 57" Sukhoi.

I was looking at the 3dhs sukhoi and the aw yak too (as well as the h9 funtana). Also, I have a mojo 40 that I'm almost finished with. I have the following engines to go in the mojo and one of the other two planes: saito 82, saito 100 and os 55 ax.

I had planned to put the 82 in the mojo, but could reconsider.

I would appreciate suggestions as to plane and engine choices amongst my engines and plane choices.

If nothing else, stay away from the Funtana if you're looking for precision or 3d. If you're looking for a big, pretty Twist....the Funtana is the weak version of it.
