Default What plane would make good home for Enya .15 ?

I have a Like new Enya .15 that was given to me by my father in law... Used to be in a foam trainer... What would be a good home for this little engine? What's a good prop size?

Herr Little Extra if you can find one. Master Airscrew 7X6 is a good starting point.

Check out the House of Balsa "Schoolyard Scale" profile series.

Hello; My Enya 15 is on a "pizza box flyer" which is just a sheet of coroplast with 2 elevons on the back end. You're right about there not being much out there for a 15. It seems that the electric bunch have taken over that size category, so you will likely find something suitable there.

Keep your eyes open for a foam Midwest Cardinal or Chipmunk kit. Great flyers and tough as a foam ice chest. Resist the temptation to make them pretty as weight build-up happens quickly.

The Peppermint Pattie was an excellent flyer (mini patternship) and can still be found on folks shelves.

The Global Caprice 15 ARF, while ugly, is a great flyer with a good .15 engine.

There are lots of Electric ARFS that can be used for conversion I just got a NOUVO 1300 from Richmond RC, 51" span sort of telemaster looking, very well built the wing is one piece, fus is slab side balsa not stick built up, any 10 to 15 engine will do fine simple mods will easily allow a radial mount or beam engine mounts gobs of room inside for tank, throttle servo, Have not yet decided to power with a 10 or 15 , leaning towards the Sharma 15 ( PAW diesel copy indian knockoff), or Enya 11CX diesel) have a couple of TT 10
with davis diesel heads too,
also a lot of the electric ARFS by Great planes are good choices too I have just finished a Beaver and with a little front end work put in an Enya 25 diesel, and they have bunch
including warbirds too martin

I had a Scimitar slo-motion with a .15 on it. Fantastic plane. I used an 8 x 4 prop. I need to do another one.
