Hey thanks every one! I ended up going for a .91 4-stroke which has plently of power. The thing doesn't seem to want to balance, though, and still seems tail heavy (turns sharply up in a turn). I'm thinking of moving the elevator and rudder servos to the back on the outside of the tail. What do people think? Thanks again!!

Re: Engine size for GP Matt Chapman CAP 580?

I set mine up to fly hands off upright and inverted. Had no problem doing that with a Saito 82 and everything in the stnd positions. How is moving the servos to the back going to fix a plane that's already tail heavy? Get it too tail heavy and the elevator gets super sensitive. If you go to RCU there's a huge build thread there.
I've only ever wanted 1 more plane.....at a time
