Giant Big Stick

I am starting to build a Giant Big Stick I am planning it to go from my trainer that I have (Hobico 60 with an OS Max 091 4 cycle) now. I have a Super Tiger G3000 that I plan to use. However I keep looking at the gas engines and would like any recommendations either way. Also any build input would be great. It is a ARF and I plan to use flaps.
