looks to be a CAP 232! and that 40 should fly that plane just fine!

won't be 3D but still sporty!

That can be a very snappy air plane there.
Be careful on that elev.
Keep the speed up.

O you had a snap 21?
They were interesting to say the least.
It scared me so bad that I mainly flew hersey bar wing airplanes till the advent of the 3D airship.

Thats great to hear.
I had my doubts about flying her with a 40 but a 46 should do it with getting her to heavy.
When learning aerobatics, I always recommend learning the vertical and inverted flight 1st.
Followed by 4 point rolls.
Master those and all the others just fall into place.
