    You're in the middle of .40-.60 size airframes at that weight, so I'd have to make an educated guess somewhere around the .82-1.00 mark.

    I found a build thread on RCU where someone was using a Saito .80. This confirmed my educated guess.

    @BRY T: Is this the one you purchased?
    Did you just get the plans or the laser pack too:

    TIGER MOTH The best plans available for this classic
    trainer.
    Span 66”, 1/5.3 scale
    Engine .60 - .80
    Plan $30.00 + $5.00 shipping USA
    Epoxy glass cowl $10.00,
    Laser cut parts $100.00

    I've been looking for tiger moth kit for ever in this range that wasn't exhorbitant in price. 150 for laser short kit, plans and cowl for a nice sized Tiger is exactlhy what I was looking for...
