Roughly the same cost vs a 46 via HobbyKing. The 60 size could also come in handy if I decide to go with a large warbird in the future, never say never right? Im definitely going to take my time and enjoy this as thoroughly as possible. Aiming for a Feb 1st maiden on a frozen lake just around the corner from my place, Ive seen videos of it flying on snow and WOW, so awesome.
60 size work just fine in this plane, just use throttle management. I'd rather have more motor and not use it all than less motor and wish I had more.
I flew my maiden off of snow last winter. I'd just recommend at least 3" of snow for a cushion since it has a fiberglass fuse.
