Default Good combo?

Saito 45 and a Parakeet biplane. It has a 41 inch wing span. Think this will make a good combo?

Thanks, pcm

Is this the 3 channel one with the big center pylon mount for the top wing? I had one with a really old OS Max bushing .25 with the strap on muffler, and I always felt like it had too much power and torque. When throttled back, it flew really nice, but full power would make it want to bank hard, and without ailerons that wasn't always fun. I always thought a nice quiet .15 would be a better choice, but I was thinking if I revive it I may go electric. I think the Saito will work, although it will definately be at the upper limit of power choices.

Yes that is the bipe. The person that built it put ailerons on the wings. I bought it at an auction. I wanted something to put my Saito 45 on.

I was looking at the Sig Rascal too. I really don't want a hot rod aerobatic type but thinking more of a slow cruiser that could loop or roll if ya wanted.

I never thought about putting ailerons on mine, does the one you bought have them top and bottom wing, or bottom only? Full length? Do you have a picture of the airplane?

Here is a picture of the plane. There is a right and left servo bay in the bottom of the bottom wing.
