Default Suggest airplane for YS110

Due to circumstances I won't get into now, I have two YS 110s, one older version and one newer 110 S, neither fully broken in as both were run for the first time last month.
The only airplane either has been installed in was a Goldberg Edge 540. I think that would have been a good airplane for the 110.
Now a pause for my public service announcement. Within 2 minutes of the maiden flight the Goldberg Edge broke apart in flight from straight and level and about 2/3 throttle due to faulty hardware. Goldberg will not make good on it, so any airplane by Goldberg is out. Warning, replace all the kit hardware if you get a Goldberg Edge 540.

unpause; So I have two YS 110s and no airplane to put them in. I have been searching the internet and RC Universe for weeks to get ideas. I have found a lot of airplanes I would like to try, but most of the airplanes I like are either a bit too large or too small for the 110. So I am asking for you, the RCuniverse members for help.
What is your favorite airplane to fly with a YS110?
It would help if you have flown your suggested airplane with a YS110.
Hopefully you can verify some of the airplanes I have been looking at, or give me some new ideas.
After all, Two new YS110s sitting on a table is almost a sin.

Thanks
Roy

A Great Planes Venus II is a perfect match for the YS 1.10. I would think that the World Models Groovy 90 would match up very well, also.

Kit or ARF???

The Great Planes Skybolt KIT is ideal for a YS 110 - It would be almost overkill on the ARF (Which is about 2 pounds lighter)

RoyR,

I'm flying a World Models Extra 330S weighing 8.75 lbs. Flys like a dream with power to spare. You'll have a kick with this combo.

Suitcase has been flying a Sig Mayhem with a 1.10 on it for about a year. Its a great combo with a 16x6. Its a good quality ARF with good construction and good hardware. It also has good flying traits , excelent slow speed almost no coupling in KE. He also has a 110 in a Jerry's Big Boy which is an 80 inch Ultra Stick type model. It flys it great.

Myself i would have to vote for the Venus II excellent combo.

But The Great Planes Skybolt would just look cool. Haven't seen anyone flying the Skybolt but i would have to agree awesome looking plane.

I have recently been looking at two Aeroworks planes. The 46-61 Edge 540 and the 90-120 Yak 54
Interestingly they have both flown well with the YS 110.
I reallly like the looks of the Aeroworks kits, pretty complete.
Would be nice if I could afford both.

I'd have to second the scratch built Krier Kraft (from RCM plans), I have one (with an OS 120) weighing about 7 lbs or so. It will accelerate vertically.

Go to Raidentech.com and look at there Plane called a LEO 110 ARF for $222.00 . It is a pattern plane and it looks real sharp. I would like to have one but I have other interests in different planes right now. While your there check out there inventory. You can find some good prices at there site.

I have the 60 sized yak 54 from seagull with a YS 110 and a 15x6 prop. I haven't flown it yet however. With some luck and good weather I will soon.

I have my YS110 in a seagull edge 540 and love it. Hovers at under 1/2 stick and can do anything you throw at it.

Any 60-90 sized aircraft will have tremendous power with the YS110. So anything in that range will be agood fit.

What kind of plane are you looking for, scale, sport, 3D, warbird, ARF, kit?

There are tons of options. The YS 110 is a really popular engine for the OMP Fusion.
