Default Looking on advice for powering a seagull edge

I recently purchased a seagull edge. I must say I am impressed so far by the completeness and appearantly decent quality. Anyway, the plane is rated for up to a 1.2 4 stroke. Any suggestions or experience? Thanks

Last month I purchased an Edge 540 from my LHD. Quality was great and it was the most complete built ARF I have yet purchased. I put an new Enya 80x on the Edge and flew it for two hours on Sunday. Great flying plane, yet it needed more power. If I were you, depending on your flying experience, the more power you have, the better you will like the plane.........jb

I would put a 2 stroke on it in the 90-120 range, A buddy of mine has one and it is a well built plane but it is alittle on the heavy side. I flew it first for him on the maiden flight I came in hot and it done excellent ,,, next time I came in at a slow speed and it got alittle twitchy, and tried to stall but I quickly burped the throttle and landed. You will be happy with the plane but don't bring it in to slow, you don't have to bring it in blinding hot but you will learn the correct speed the more you fly.

If you want that best power to weight engine use the Saito 100. We have one here and it is great combo. Dennis

Yes, that was what I was thinking. I looked at the Saito 120 and there is a huge jump in weight between it and the 100, with a .4 hp increase. Plus, I can switch the motor in and out of my Funtana!!!

I flew mine this weekend with the Saito 100 and it was outstanding!!! Unlimited vertical.......plenty of juice for this airplane.
