I need the wings to be removable, I can't tell if the aeroworks are removable though.

I've had the Seagull Edge 540 46 for a couple of years. I've flown it a lot. I don't recommend it. I've got a Saito FA-80 in mine. The factory CG is wrong, it'll make it tail heavy therefore even with the FA-80 it needs extra weight in the nose.

I'd definitely go with the Aero Works. It has more wing area. Call the folks at Aero Works and ask about the wing.

If you buy the Aero Works please come back and report on it!

Hi, I had the Phoenix Sbach - did not fly well with an OS 55 - struggled in all respects. Fitted a OS75, flew much better but the first spin I tried at high level the plane went straight down and would not pull up. Also had issues with engine mount coming loose from the firewall - simply expoxied back in.
