It would not be but if you want to do it to get tons of speed I think its pointless, the plane can only go so fast, but with the 55 she will have unlimited vertical.

Yes. These fly plenty well with a plain bearing .46 such as an OS .46-LA. The .55 is a great engine but just not needed to have fun with this particular airplane.

It would be low powered compared to the one in this thread.

My EP conversion of the SkyRaider was pulling about 1,000W. It turned a 12x10 prop at about 9,000+ RPM ... it has UNLIMITED vertical. I did not find it over powered, there is always throttle management and its fun to be able to pull big loops. Big graceful ones.

I have a Saito 56 4 stroke on mine! Been flying it for about 8 months. I rarely need full power, or even more than 2/3 rds throttle, but it flys really well and sounds awesome! Like this plane so much I bought a second one in case I dump the original!

There is really no reason for a .55 on it, and it’ll probably fly better on a.46 AX or .46 Pro. We race them (most guys use the .46 AX with Macs muffler – it seems to get back to speed better out of a turn than the .46 Pro), and the new ones (pinched nose) fly in the 90 – 95 mph range.

It will fly nicely on a ST GS-40 (I have one on its 3rd season with a ST GS-40 and a Macs muffler – great combination for sport flying), and an LA .46 should work well.
