Default What would be the nicest airplane for this engine? O.S. FS-30S Surpass 4 stroke.

Ok I have this Brand New Engine sitting on the shelf just begging for an airframe. What do you people suggest I put it on? I was thinking a Bi-Plane... I have to fly in tight spots (not much room) very short runway.
Please post pictures if possible.

Oh I should also add I don't really like to build and would rather just fly...

I was also wishing that SIG would make a four star 20.

Thanks,
-gerald


Regardless of the type of flying you're into, Surpass engines enhance the aeromodeling experience. And if you fly planes with .26-size mounting applications, the FS-30S Surpass for O.S. will be a much-appreciated upgrade. It's an economical way to enjoy the benefits of a 4-stroke engine—more muscle to swing bigger props, quieter, more realistic sound and better fuel efficiency—without making any modifications to your model. With 20% more power than the FS-26 engine, the FS-30S Surpass is ideal for exploring the performance potential of aircraft such as the Great Planes Piper J-3 Cub .20 or the T-Craft. Tweak the performance of your smaller planes simply and affordably...with the FS-30S Surpass power plant from O.S.!

The FS-30S shares these quality features with other Surpass engines:
Ringed piston design


Rear-mounted updraft carb
Dual ball bearing-supported crankshaft
Helix gear-driven camshaft
Enlarged intake valve for superior compression and output

Stock Number: OSMG0830

You could build a Gee Bee Tiger moth Bipe

or the Lanier Laser Extra

Not much in the ARF zone unless you want to convert an electric

Get a 2nd and there are lots of great options in Twins

Hobby People usually have a nice Modeltech Cub that is ideal for this and an ARF. I have this combination and it is a terrific flyer.

Graves shows 1 Extra 3.25 in stock
http://www.gravesrc.com/LANIER_EXTRA...p/lan96226.htm

Sorry about that..

It's still listed on the Lanier web site..

I've found that Tower marks items as Discontinued when they stop stocking it but it may still be in production and available through other retailers.

Try World Models. They have had .25 and .30 size planes. Their ARF's are really nice
