What's the best fully R/C 1/2A engine?

Hi I'm trying to put together an Ace Upstart (aerobatic high wing) plane and was wondering what's the best engine for it?
It says .049 on the box, but could I use a .061?
I'm looking for a lot of power (unlimited vertical) but good long flight times. I've been told Norvel makes the best of these sizes with R/C throttles. Is there any other brand out there that might be better for the price? I've been told a cox queen bee .074 should do the trick, but I'm wondering if they actually ahve the R/c throttle and if they're too heavy.
I might go with norvel .061 if it's not much of a tradeoff over a .049.
I know next to nothing about engines except for what I've seen on ebay and what I've been looking around for so I don't know many acronyms or lingo hehe.
