There you go....good example of engine/prop combo that gives the performance your looking for while staying within the recommended engine size!

Saito FA-72...?

So what would be a good 4-stroke for a Sig Somethin Extra? I have a SE kit I am hoping to build soon and decided that it will have a 4-stroke. I am looking at the Saito 72 for a different project. Would like to use that same engine to "fit" to the SE. Is the 72 a reasonable choice in terms of performance, weight, size or should I consider a 56 or 62 instead?
