I had one of these for several years. I had a Saito 91 four stroke on it for the most part but did have a Super Tiger S61K and a ASP 65 four stroke on it at first. I enjoyed it very much. It doesn't have Mono/Ultra coat type covering but the covering was never a problem on this plane. I made it as a tail dragger. I finally got shot down by someone turning on their transmitter. But I had a couple accidents with it some years ago and always managed to repair them.

You might take a look at the Hangar-9 Twist .60. I have the .40 size and it's a fun, low cost plane.

I want to second the thought about the Twist 60. A friend has one and it is a super plane for just having fun to 3D or pattern

The 60 size twist seems to hover just fine with a Saito 100. The OS 91FX should have just a little more power than a Saito 100.

But naturally the twist would do even better with a Saito 125 or OS 120AX

A Great Planes Super Skybolt ARF. Beautiful, light, fully aerobatic, and easy to fly! Perfect choice for this motor! Paul
