Is a Fuji .19 powerful enough for a plane?

I have standard size electronics and bought a Fuji .19 with an OS carb and muffeler for $15. Is there any planes out there that will perform behind this engine?
Thanks

any 15 size airframe or smaller 25 size planes would be fine with it, If you want to tear up the sky get a 15 size and have power to spare or a mellow 25 size and have a relaxing flight.

Many of the guys in my club have built Craft-Air Butterflies and fitted them with 20 sized engines. This is a large wingspan floater that is often used as a trainer. Your .19 will have plenty of power for this airframe; even an 0.09 would be fine.

Butterfly

I run an OS 20 on my Craft Air Butterfly and it has plenty of power. I like to fly it on days when I can just sit in the lawn chair and see how long I can keep it up. I actually have 2 of them. One has a OS 30 but it is too much engine and I can only use it at about half throttle.

This is an old post but if you still don't have a suitable model, I can take that engine off your hands if you still have it (and its any good). Let me know if you're interested and what you might want for it. I have been looking for one of those to put in a small model I custom-built.
