I am very happy with the Zero with the 90. Its a perfect match for this model, and this weight. Good power in all directions. All over a great combo.

My FW had the FG90, and the total weight dry was 17 kg. (Extra paint and without the drop tank)
I have now changed to Moki 180 engine. Total 18 kg dry. (Also without the drop tank). Perfect combo. Just super ! Highly recommended !
I felt that the FW was underpowered with the 90. I would say that the 90 has a limit when the weight is coming up to 16,5-17 kg.
Thanks Totto,
Send you a PM

The graphics are coated with a thin clear plastic. Tough to sand or remove with chemicals. I took a razor blade and scraped off the plastic...then wet sanded with 180 & 220. Very easy once I figured out how to remove plastic shield. It will come off is huge hunks once you get the blade underneath a bit. Hope that helps.

I ordered mine without decals and if I had to do it again I'd have ordered the plane in primer. You have to wait for the next shipment and pay up front.
