Default Mojo 40 a good beginer for 3D?

OK.,I've been flying about 5 yrs now ( sport flying). I'm probably an intermediate pilot. Getting a little bored with the loops & rolls etc. I've built plenty of kits & one plane from plans ( (60 size Super Hots). Would the SwanyHouse Mojo 40 be a good start? I've got a Super tiger 60 for power.,or would a 40size engine be better? What prop? Thanks in advance Ed

Yes the mojo is a great place to start. If I were to recommend the best place to start, it would be a mojo or lamyak. The best combo is a 55ax with a 13x4 Xoar or APC sport if you want to 2 stroke it. I would sell or repurpose the ST60 as it is too heavy for 40 size and not enough power for a 60 size 3Der.

A PERFECT choice!!!! Do away with the thought of that engine however and go with a TT.46, OS .46FX- AX, OS. 55AX or Saito .72, .82 and you wont be sorry rest assured!

So how does the mojo fly with a 46?  I've flown it with an 82 and it was great.  I'd like to see a vid with a 46 in it.   Mostly because I have a 46 and don't want to buy anymore glow motors these days.

My very first Mojo .40 had a TT.46 with a Macs header and my own MCP....turned an APC 12x4 @ 14,500+ and had the throttle response of an electric!!! Awesome power for a 3lb 14oz plane. If your .46 runs reliable then have at it....it won't be an .82 on 30% but it will get the job done.
