I have flown both the Saito 180 and 150 on that plane. Both fly it well. The 180 makes it an anit-gravity machine.

The OS 160FX and Super Tiger 2300 give it unlimited potential. The OS is a much better engine, but costs a lot more.

Go gas!!!! I have a BCMA 26cc on mine. No glow slime, 6 oz of gas for 15 minute flight, 10.5 lbs rtf, and unlimited vertical. Plus, the gas engine is cheaper than the other engines mentioned.

guns can you hover well with the bcma 26,, I have the bcma 26 and had it on an ultra stick 60 but it went in due to interference, I am stuck between the 60 and 120 size ultra stick ,,, what prop do you have on yours?

zayzay1,

Yes, it will hover. Mine is 10lbs 10oz. Still trying to find the best prop for it. I am running an APC 17x8 on it now, but I have a 18x6 to try on it as soon as the weather warms up.

how did it balance, did you have to move anything to the back.

I have a Ultra Stick 120 Lite I have an O/S 1.20 AX on mine and it will do anything that I am capable of makeing the plane do ! Verticle is no problem at all! Have a second one with a Webra 1.20 that combo is a sweetie too!

Mine balanced perfectly with the 26cc gasser. I put in a pull/pull rudder with the servo in the tail. Batteries are at the trailing edge of the wing. 14oz fuel tank and ignition right behind the firewall. It is a blast to fly and only uses about 4-6oz of fuel for a 12-15 minute flight! I could have gotten away with a 10 oz fuel tank, may change it out this spring.
