Hangar 9 40 cub ARF with saito???

OK guys and gals I have been searching for two weeks now and cant pull the trigger on the right engine. My last plane a hangar 9 hellcat I put a magnum .91 in it and it runs great but had a few little issues with the Magnum out of the box. So I decided on a Saito this time. I have seen anything from a .52 to a .72 size in the 4 stroke. I was set on a .56 but a guy at my field has the same plane with a .70 4 stroke ASP. I'm really lost. The .56 should be fine but would really like some more input. Thanks

Well I have the same plane, I bought it used and it came with a Magnum 91 in the nose. I wouldn't reccomend it unless you want to do cub 3D. How big an engine really depends on the kind of flier that you are, if all you plan to do with it is float around then the 56 would be plenty. If I had to chose I would go with the 70, just because I like the occasional loop and I like to have lots of power when I do stuff like that.

I built the great planes 40 size cub in clipped wing form and a .70 4 stroke was perfect. Flew it 1/2 to 3/4 most of the time esepcially if your pulling scale aerobatics
