Default To much power?

Hello everyone, I am finally getting back into flying. After a 20+ year hiatus, I am completing a Mustang Stunter I purchased back in the early 80's I think.[sm=confused.gif] The plane has a 50" foam wing span, about 36"fuse and is supposed to weigh 41oz. A friend bought me an o.s 46 LA-S engine that I would like to put in it. Do you think this is overkill? Or should I use a Fox 35? I am going to use 60' lines if that matters.

Thanks, Joe

The LA46 should be just fine if it balances properly. I know someone who has an early Enya 45 in a Nobler and it flies great.

Sounds like it will be fine. If its too fast, just start backing down on the prop pitch until its comfortable.
