We used to get nearly 20 minutes of run time on the stock tank using and O.S. .61FX...........I wouldn't use just any .61 size engine........FX or AX.........and Wayne is right........the bigger the funner!

The Pizzazz has an OS .46FX in it, which has been a solid engine, but obviously more power is better.
Seriously, put the .91FX in it??? Talk about pounds of tail weight! Main reason I never used that engine was the cost per flight that glow fuel has gotten too!

Time to bust out the scale, and see what the relative weights are. Kind of leaning toward the .61's - if they clean up and run still.
OK, so first, I chop those cheeks off. They are useless weight and crowd the engine. Second, I get the battery and servos back in the fuse to make the balance work. I put a 15cc gas engine in a 60 size with the ignition. The Saito .82 is only 1.8 oz lighter than an FX .91. I had the .82 on my 40. So the battery should do the trick. Yea glow fuel is expensive but it still a Hell of a lot cheaper than tickets to a sports event.

At least they show up for work and make an effort most of the time. More than we can say for most politicians nowadays
