About Guillow's F4U-4 kit?

Hello. I have an AP 15 engine and i want to build a kit.In my local hobby market i can only found guillow's some models. I liked corsair more than others.
So my question is about weight my engine is about 4 oz. and kit requires .49 engine. Is my engine too heavy for it?

Thanks!

Yes, the AP .15 is far too large and heavy for this kit.
You really don't tell us much. We have no level of model building experience or where you live, or your flying experience or if the hobby shop you are talking about might be able to order some other kit for you...

Would you be building such a model for control line use or radio control?

That engine is WAY too big...you can find nice little trainers that your engine would work well in. Might be a good place to start. If you have little experience building/flying RC, you most likely should not jump into a conversion project...

I have used to build bigger models (25 and up) I have a bit experiance and i thought maybe a conversion is a fun project Maybe i need to re-draw some corsair plan. 178 gr engine is really big for this kit.Maybe an AP .061 engine is suitable for it? It's only 58gr.

The AP .061 would be a much better choice for that size of plane
