Planes that will work well with 85 cc desert aircraft engine

I have a DA 85 that is in great shape that was in a Hanger 9 Sukhoi. I am looking for a good arf, 3d, sport, or scale plane that works well with a DA85. Most models I see on line do not recommend a 85cc. Please advise.

Thanks

Our Edges, Vipers fly very well on a DA-85: what you loose in power, you gain in lighter weight.
Here, and example:
PAU Edge 540 100cc Great Save Gabriel Altuz (3 min 18 sec)

The Pilot 32% Decathlon is a nice plane, and a lot of people fly them with the 85 in it. I have one with the dle55 in it and the only reason I have not put in the 85 is because it has electric start.

Most 100cc class models will work well with the 85, Due to lighter weight, Remember the 85 equivalent power as early 100cc motors But with much less weight, then you factor in one less header and canister, Less weight again.

Thanks to all for your input. From your comments, it looks like the 85 will work on most 100cc planes,

Heard the motor is strong but if set low idle it'll rattle the hell out of the plane unless as long a very solid firewall and glued every joint in the plane. I had the 37.5% yak with 170 which is an ideal (2) of 85cc put in twin to be 170cc. At low rpm it rattle my rudder about 6 inch back and forth. Just make raise the idle up abit to reduce vibrate.
