Sal Taibi's Powerhouse 84" ws


I have an old Sal Taibi's Powerhouse 84" ws kit.
The motor the plans say to use is a .099 size engine, my problem is, that the person that sent the kit said it would be a good plane to use my K&B .65 sportster engine on. I am new to this, but would'nt a .65 be quite a bit TOO large for this kit? (.099 versus a .65), please be nice to me, but I am confused!

The original PowerHouse, I believe, was designed around the Forster .99 (NOT .099). Scroll down on this link for an illustration.

For an R/C conversion (from freeflight), your K&B .65 should be OK.

Thanks for the info, I was going to post that I reread plans, and I read wrong.
Your opinion please (would my Saito FA80 (4 stroke) be a better choice for RC operation ?).

Too big, if you want four stroke a 48, 52, 56 would be all good choices.

I guess I will be using my K&B or my tiger shark .75 w/TSI carb.
Thanks for all the info!
