Re weight on the Contender- Not true! I built two of them glow, and it was a very light glow ship, and unless the new version has been beefed up unmercifully, it probably still is. C/L stunter construction is actualy pretty light.

The airplane has a thick wing though-which means it doesn't really stall, but is kind of slow on the top end. Gearboxes should be a big plus- your worse problem will be ground clearance- I had trouble with a 12" prop on grass.
