Plenty of wing, what did you go with 2oz tank?
If you try APC props some thoughts through use.

For a .061
4.75x4.5EC (better for .061) or 4.75 speed 85 PS
5.7x3 for thrust expect static 20k / 19oz thrust / 57 PS
6x4 maybe a all around / AP .061 / 16,795 rpm / 17oz thrust / 64 mph static
Should do around 72 mph due to plane size.

Something to compare to:
APC 4.75x4.75EC speed prop / 2oz tank just over 7 mins per vid.
SH .07 Unloaded 26,640 rpm / best pass down wind 120 mph pitch speed.
Static 22,286 rpm / 143.2watts / .192 hp / 12oz thrust / 100 PS.
RTF 18.34oz / 140 sq./in. / 35.5" span.

I found the flying fun fast with solid loops, rolls and a reasonable zoom vertical height.
Wish I had known about the APC 6x4 back then would have tried it for better vert and
has enough pitch to fly around with some pep.

Soooo I had the Turkey out for a nice flight yesterday..Mistake one was filling the tank to the top...Not sure how long I was flying but decided to land...Normally I turn final and pull the trim all the way down on the throttle. Then just before the end of the runway close the throttle. It will quit just about the time I slow down to flair...this time it stays running..Mistake two..
I figure its running at such a low rpm it will just stop as soon as a blade hits...Well she slides to a stop and is just sitting there idling nice and smooth...Minus both prop blades...Guess its time to try some APC props on it.
Next time I will just take it up and run it out of gas..Or I guess I can add some landing gear

Turkeys can fly and have more than one life!
At a min and a half into my flight this weekend I was making a lowish pass at full it went past I pulled up and she didn't climb..suddenly just nosed over and slid in the dirt...walked over and to my surprise it didn't even break the prop..It pushed the muffler loose and packed a bunch of dirt in the nose..On inspection the CG clevis has split and came off the rod..
So some cleaning and new clevis and she will be ready for more missions
