Engine for Funtana 90??

Who's flying a funtana 90 (sebastian...) and which engine do you recommend? I'm not happy with the Super Tiger 90 in mine as the vertical sucks.

I have an OS 120 AX in my Funtana 90. The vertical is awesome with an APC 17 x 6 prop. It pulls mine around great. Plenty of power for hovering and 3D. Quick throttle response and did I mention tons of power. Very reliable engine and it fits in perfectly with the 90 degree adapter installed. Here is a picture of mine hovering.

I'll second the 120AX. Great choice, had one on mine.

funtana 90

I had an O.S. 90 in mine and it sucked.
Swapped it with a Saito 180 recently. Balanced beatifully with unimited vertical.
Excellent choice. Lands like a trainer.
Make sure that you reinforce the landing gear though.

I have a YS91FX on mine, have not test flown it as yet but thinking that I might need a bigger engine. Was looking at the YS 110 or bigger.

The OS120As looks interesting, would have preferred a 4 stroke but this really looks tempting, price and power looks great.
