Great job on the T bird scheme. I have a Kougar with a .46 AX I think it's the fastest glow plane I have. I think it's also the heaviest .40 size plane.
It is tough. Built like a tank

Iduno. In my opinion 4 strokes are better for planes with lots of drag,like Bipes. Or scale warbirds,or cubs.
My Kougar has an OS 46 AX in it. It is one of the heaviest planes I have but it also...

Nice. I would consider it. I like Bi planes,but that is kind of what keeps me from building a BUSA plane. Not only building more than one wing,but the extra effort to assemble at the field. ...

I have bought up several .40 Fps when I found deals on them. In my opinion they are better motors than the LA,s. They are built like little tanks.

I believe if I were you,I would try to find a used OS .40 FP. They weigh just a bit more than a .25 size motor. If you are patient you might find one for 25 bucks. The secret about a 40 FP is it's a...

Very nice :cool: I bought one that is about ready to cover last winter.
