Default MoJo 60 and what engine?

Hey. I think my next plane will be swannys Mojo 60. I was on his site and it says like 5.5 lbs for weight. What have you guys been strappin to it? I have an OS .60 on a profile spad that weighs more than this thing and has a 48"ws and it pulls it out of a hover with authority. Would a ST .61 ringed bed ok or .75 or .90. . Would like any sugustions or what you have experience with. please no 4 strokers.
thanks

I think Paul designed the plane to be flown with the .60 boat anchors some of us have lying around.

Some people refer to any .60 2 stroke as a boat anchor. A hot .50 that is much lighter comes close to the same power, and many manufacturers have 75 - 90 size engines in the same weight range as their 60s.

I just talked to Swanny about the Mojo .60 at the Columbia TN. swap meet Saturday. He said that a Saito .91
would be great on this plane. That works for me since I already have a Saito .91, but he recommended it before
I told him I had one. He didn't have any Mojo .60 kits with him but I should get mine in a week or so. I can't
wait.

Well I don't have a Saito 91 or the cash for one. So I'm going to order a ST .75 or Tower .75 for it. Should be plenty of engine for it. Is there not a lot of people flying these MoJo 60's yet. Just new or what. How long will it take to get a kit from Swanny????? thanks

The ST 75 should be fine.... I designed it fly well on a 60 size two stroke...
I should have them in stock next week. They're going fast.... I've got 9 out of the 15 spoken for.

My MoJo 60 is almost ready to fly. Just as soon as the UPS driver shows up with my Servo! I need one Hitec 945 and my MoJo 60 will be flying. The Saito 100 should fly it around real good. I put a Saito 72 on my 40 size MoJo and it's one awesome flying plane.
IowaSilvia, I'm being nice and telling you to skip on the Tower 75. Unless you do not mind a motor that will not shut off and one that needs both needle to be tweaked every flight. I bet there are several good Tower 75 but there are a bunch of bad ones too. Save yourself the trouble!

Ya. I'm gonna go with the ST .75. I have mixed feelings about Tower engines. I have a .40 and it is like that. Runs great one day. the next you have to adjust it. It's good for my brothers trainer. that's about it..

Well I don't think the 75 will have a problem at all pulling it to the moon and back. Hell a 90 would be way too much I think. They are putting ST90's on a Funtana90 with good results and it weighs in at 9+lbs. This is a 5.5 - 6 lb plane.
Swanny said a 91 four stroker is perfect. which is about a .60 2 stroker.
I guess you can go with a 90 but be careful and use the left thumb.
thanks for the info and already was thinking 90. And I love overpowered planes.

i have the st .61 and i think that it is a turd power wise for the weight. i'm pretty sure it won't pull as good a newer .90 four stroke. wish i would have got a st .90...............

Mine is getting a nearly new Saito 91. If that isn't enough, I have an OS 91 FX with Ultrathrust muffler. My Mojo 60 is built, I just have to cover it[sm=drowning.gif]

IowaSilvia - I think that ST 75 will be great!

Well. I might be getting a magnum 91 4ST. If I don't I'm gonna dish in an extra $10 for the ST 90. Same size and weight as the 75 but $10 more. I'll use my left thumb and when i'm in a sticky situation I will have plenty of boost to get out. hopefully. I just can't wait to get this thing and put it together. The weather is gettin nice. I'm goin to the LHS friday to order servos and another receiver.

Addendum: I love 4-strokes, but if you can't get a Saito, just get a 2-stroke! Only prob you might have with the ST 90 is getting the idle slow enough so you can land... make sure you can kill the engine with the tranny before you take off, in case you have to glide it in! Seriously.. been there, done that, with the Burrito and poor throttle set-up! Had to practice harrier landings real fast!

Razorback and I have done the same thing, we bought a .40 and a .60. I maidened my .40 recently and it's a sweet one! Very agile and it does the 3D stuff without any signs of ballooning, yet it penetrates and does what you want it to. Mine weighs 4lbs. 1oz, dry, RTF, and I didn't try to keep it light! One neat flying plane and I'm using a Thundertiger .46.

I already framed in my MoJo 60 and I'll probably start covering it today. It's the same, easy to frame and minimal sanding required. I'm going to use a Saito 91 on it.

Dude, I'm behind! [X(] I haven't even opened my Mojo 60 box yet! I'm going to have to bust that puppy open and get started!!!!!!!!!

The only thing that I can say about Paul Swany kits is WOW! Awesome planes, and so easy to build!!!!!! I've had ARF's that went together slower than his kits!!!!!!!!

And I agree with crazystix, spend the money on a good, reliable engine. It would be better to have a good 2 stroke than a so-so four stroke. 3D planes require an engine that you can depend on!

I hope that Paul doesn't mind me speaking for him, but I think that the 100 would be just fine. Paul is running a Saito 91 on his, so the 100 should be a great match!!!!!
