Help Funtana S 90 with Saito FA 100 Help

I'm looking at buying a Funtana S 90 with Saito FA 100 Engine, wondering if this would be good, what price would be good to pay on this plane? Is the Saito FA 100 enough to power it? Any help would be awesome! thanks!

The 100 should be fine for almost all 3D stuffs. Good price? Used? Well that depends completely on the condition of the airframe, servos, and engine. It also depends on which servos are used. Servos alone can substantially change price. Price also changes if it is coming from a known trusted source or if it is coming from a stranger.
Best thing to do is look up all the equipment used in the airframe and get a starting new price for everything and go down from there depending on wear, damage. repairs et cettera.

I bought the plane! flies sweet! have to adjust my CG a bit, but overall good! the motor could be a bit bigger to punch out vertical, but definately doesn't do bad, had a 15x8 at about 7000 rpm.. switched for the 15x4 APC brought up to 9000, i need to pick me up the 15x6!

Hi Ligeverlo, was wondering how you're doing now that you've had the plane for a month. I bought an S90 last week with a Saito 100 and maidened it today. The engine is running great and purs (and growls) like a tiger. I'm not happy with the CG yet through, and as a result is tough to land gracefully.

As an aside, I'm using the 16x4 prop based on what others have recommended for 3D, and seeing about 9000-9100 RPM.
