My friend has had several Phoenix models, and they have been easy to assemble and fly well. Have not heard any bad reports like some of the other manufacturers, and they are sure a good value.

I bought a Phoenix SeaBee ARF that I liked so much, I bought a second one after I buried the first. It's the only plane I've purchased a second time so far. It's amazing how much fun the SeaBee is to fly, I'm surpised they're not as common as Avistars at the local flying fields. The ARF seems well made (a bargain for the price) and the hardware quality was good.

Most of the Phoenix Models ARFs available here in the U.S. are .46-sized, I don't know you'll find a whole lot for your .61 to .91 sized engines other than the Extra 330S.

I'm assembling a Sports Aviation Excelleron 50 which is the best quality ARF I have run across in the last couple years, and it is dirt cheap at $139. I think it would work with your OS 60. I'm putting an OS 70 four stroke in mine. Good luck, and good flying! Jon

Try the Streamline from [link=http://www.eastrc.org/shop.cgi/page=index2.html/SID=1199820577.31657]East RC[/link] I got it for $80 and put a Saito 62 in it. The instructions leave a lot to be desired. I maidened it last weekend and it flies great it has way more capability than I do, so for now I'm keeping it on low rates.

Seagull Models has been steadily releasing a number of ARFs that are designed around .60 2c and .90 4c engines. Extra 260, Extra 300S, Edge 540, Ultimate Bipe, and Yak 54 are all high quality, affordable choices from Seagull.
