Default What plane for a .35 AX OS engine?????

A very nice old man gave me a brand new in the box .35 AX OS engine.

I am still in the beginning of training and have more planes than I need right now.

But if I decide to put this on a plane what is a good trainer type or easy to fly
sport model type plane I could put this on?????

Or I may trade it for something else I need.

I have my OS35AX mounted on a Tower Hobbies Uproar. It flies well.

http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...?&I=LXGPG8&P=7 for an ARF, or
http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...&I=LXJA52&P=ML for a kit

I am using a Macs muffler and APC 9x6 props.

Live long, and prosper

Thanks for the answer I forgot about that plane.

With those fat wings does it land easy??

You mentioned that you're still beginning training. If you're not quite ready for something like the Uproar (which is a GREAT plane - no pun intended), you might consider something like a SIG Kadet Mk-II with the wing set to half the recommended dihedral. She's a great trainer, and also a pretty good basic aerobatic plane for learning those maneuvers, and something like that .35AX should power her very well with a 10x6 prop. My own has a 40LA and is really nice in the air.

I have an os .35ax on a Wingman 2 ARF by The Wingsmaker. The .35ax is a very strong engine for its weight. It weighs the same as an old os .46la, but turns a 10x6 prop about 900rpm faster, with much better throttle response. The wingman 2 is a pretty fast plane though, The World Models (the wingsmaker's parent company) makes another model called the sky Raider Mach 2, which would also be suitable for this. The Mach 2 is a little bit bigger and more forgiving than the wingman 2.. both planes were designed for a ~12oz engine.

It's a dang sweet engine, and goes like hell on an apc 9x6 and mac's muffler.
