Engine for Hangar 9 Showtime 50

Hi all,

I have a Hangar 9 Showtime 50 with a O.S. 55AX with 12 / 6 prop that seems extremely under powered.

Vertical is very poor and to be honest even getting off the ground is a bit hair raising

I am sure that at sea level this setup will be fine and 3D flying might even be possible but in Johannesburg at just under 1700m this setup just don't work.

Any suggestions?

All over the internet guys say that they are running Saito 82's, 91's and even 120's

Has anyone tried something like a DLE20 or similar?

Any advice appreciated

A 91 FS is just right amount of power
