All of the motors you mentioned will work, I have an OS .40 LA on mine right now & it flies fine. It has also had a .55AX on it, but didnt really need all that for the type flying i do with mine.... Gene

I would rather put the .40FP on it over a .40 4 stroke. I think you'd want a .52 four stroke minimum.

Great choice. Here's mine with an OS 40 LA. RIP. I pushed this plane hard. In the end I had rigged a wire on the tail and was doing arrested landings. Weak point is the landing gear (cough... arrested landings. haha). That needs to be tossed in the trash first thing. This is not a big plane and in my opinion needs to be kept light. If I was going to build another I'd go with an OS 35 AX. AX have way more than enough power for vertical. Gene, yours must have been insane with the 55.

I've seen one with retracts, but I wouldn't go that far. I'd probably modify with blocks in the wing and mount the LG there. The wing is a beast (cartwheeled many times and only dinged up) but the fuse is pretty weak to begin with. Fuse broke many times.

Popular choices for these plankies are a .45/46/47 class 2-stroke with a 12*4 prop on it (With a pipe. Typically MACS header + long neck beer bottle muffler)

however. given your altitude id go for a .50 case with a 12*4 or 12*5

The aluminum land gear is complete crap. It will end up bending on even good landings. I'd either: 1) Replace it with an aftermarket landing gear. 2) Modify the wing with landing gear blocks and have the gear there. Like this...
