Default Engine For Nexa A-24 Banshee 1540mm (60.6") Wingspan - ARF

Hi,

What is a good engine for Nexa A-24 Banshee 1540mm (60.6") Wingspan - ARF? the specs state it should have 2 or 4 stroke (.46 - .70) engine. I'm still very very new to the hobby and would like to purchase this and build it for flight in about 6-12 months after I get some flight time on my other planes.

Model Scale

1/8

Wingspan

1540mm / 60.6in

Length

1060mm / 41.7in

Weight

3200g / 112.87oz

The plane is located on motionrc website. I'm unable to post a link yet thought because I need 10 posts.

Lots of options out there. I like the idea of a 4 stroke in an airplane like that. A Saito 82 would be a great choice but I am a huge YS fan so a YS 70 if you could find a good used one or a new YS 80 would be the cats' meow. Having said that, the YS engines require a bit more learning curve then other 4 stroke engines. One concern I have is the engine mounting position. If you need to mount the engine inverted you may want to consider a 15cc gasoline engine. The carburetor on a gasoline engine have a pump/regulator that solves the issue with flooding often experienced with an inverted install.

Thanks. I think I would like to go with your recommendation of a 15cc gasoline engine. Do you have any suggestions or links to an engine like that? I'm not sure where to start looking.

Check Valley Veiw R/C, they have a couple options and I hear great things about their customer service.
