ive never flown it but that engine is scary. i have one in my sixty size trainer and its unbeleivable. ive had it for two years now and what power out of that 61. i got five evolution engines and all are great to me. i cant wait until there 4 strokes come out.

ya thats about right, your just starting out and got some good planes to play with. ive got twelve and havent been satisfied yet. always looking for more. bigger is better but more expensive of course.

I just picked up an Ultimate 40 kit. I probably won't build it until late summer as I have several other projects on the board at this time. Anyway,,, I was thinking of installing a Saito FA82 on it. How do you folks feel about this one, or do you think it is overkill?
