new plane on the way! What engine?

Ok, I have flown most of the GWS electrics, including the warbirds. I wanted to get into glow, but I like scale. I looked at the sticks and other trainers....and then ordered the hanger 9 cub. Yes - I have read all the reports....ground looping, hard to take off, etc...SO - I am going on a box with the LHS owner ( a great guy who flys cubs)...

so - which engine? I am looking at a Saito 56 4 stroke, but I have also been pointed to the Magnum 61 4 stroke...there are about $30 difference in price.

also - I feel that once the plane is in the air I will be fine. I think flying and landing will be ok, but I am going to have to work on the ground handling (hence the instructor). I will be flying it with my futaba 6EXA...

Any other pitfalls?
