Playboy Jr. in the original 54" size would be tough to beat. It's an easy build,the .29 would be plenty of power and it soars well in the glide. Add to that a removable firewall with the entire ignition unit on an attached tray for easy access to the sparking bits.

Bob Holman has a partial kit w/plans (,Harry Klarich has a version (,Midway Models has one ( and there are a few others as well.

Waddaya think Bill,Jim and you other sparky gize???

Don't pay any never mind to the recommended engine sizes on some site as they are for glow. Feel free to ask away with any questions about flying,running, starting,setting up an spark engine as well as what you need for R/C gear.
