If you don't want to build a kit the TF P-47 ARF is a great flyer, too.

I would look into say a CMP .50 size Spitfire. Do some research on fitting the .65ax into her then you would have enough extra power to run a scale 3 or 4 blade prop. An angle mounting would put the muffler out the bottom.
And as far as fun to fly the Spitfire is my favorite warbird. Never saw one that didn't fly like it was on rails and the lines on her are just so sexy in the air.

No I'm not that old it's just planes are less trouble than women!

Plus One. If I had the money, that's what I would have.
