Hi Mike,
Got to love humor

We have ours converted to a tail dragger and we only run a 6 Oz fuel tank.
We are under 5 Lbs ready to fly. I can almost stop it and fly backwards in a head wind!

I'm running my LT-40 with an OS .40 LA. I find that this small, weak engine has plenty of power for the bulky LT-40, and generally dont have much problems even when flying in wind in terms of power and weight. I believe that either engine will perform well.

On another note, I have no problem getting mine to fly backwards in the wind :P
