Jerry's Big Boy

I got one today at a swap meet and can't decide which engine to put in it.
YS-91 AC , Enya 1.20 , or Zenoah G-23.

What do yall think?

TIA , Steve

NOT the zenoah g-23 it is WAY too heavy for the power output.

If it were my choice, I would be SORELY tempted to try it with the YS 91.

I built one with a Webra 1.20 and even that is more weight than I like up front.
It flys very nicely, but I keep thinking that it would be even better with a
lighter engine.

YMMV

Morris Hobbies produced a video of this plane flying in a parking lot. They
used an MVVS .76 I believe. I would agree with the lighter the better. No go on
the G23 for sure.

Re: Jerry's Big Boy

Jerry Smith sells plans for a very similar plane, the Spoiler. I
bought a set from him at Toledo last year. Haven't started it yet, but
looks strong, light and very easy to build.

You can order plans ($30) or a short kit ($85) from E Cubed R/C at
http://www.ecubedrc.com.
