Your exhaust sounds really good. Should be nice in the Razorback.

Hi there
I'm planing yo buy a kit from top flite the Zero Giant scale
http://www.top-flite.com/airplanes/topa0712.html

In the manual they recommend a DLE55 or an OS Gt60 2stroke.
I check this saito model and I love it, can someone help me if this motor will go fine on this model weith and power?
I love the realistic sound on my plane I don't want to race.
some friend tell me another option with a saito fg-84r3 but I think it's too heavy.
I need help please.
thanks .

I think the FG60R3 will be plenty of power for your Zero. Don't need anything larger.

The FG60R3 seems to fly the Topflite Zero just fine. Plus it looks like it will fit in the cowl. NO way the FG84R3 would fit under the cowl.
