Default 100 Saito on EF540

Is a Saito 100 too much engine and weight for the EF 540? Will I have CG problems with the extra weight up front? I was thinking of getting the EF and I have a 100 saito that needs a 3d home.

Nope, 100 will NEVER WORK. I've seen these guys with these HUGE 4 strokes on these .40 size planes, never fly right. Too heavy, always working the throttle, no prop clearance. I've seen Sloan with his and it SUCKS!!

Oh wait, I have the .91 on my Sledge at 4#6oz. What am I saying? Must be my recent hospital atay and my new diet!! that 100 will bE PERFECT!!!!!!!
