Question
First Engine?

Hello! I'm in the process of building my first plane, a Sig Kadet Senior. It is getting to be about time to start the search for an engine.

I have zero experience with a glow engines and was wondering which would be the better choice? two stroke or four stroke? I've read maintenance is simpler with a two stroke, but that they are rather noisy. I like the idea of a four stroke in the .50s range.

I'm building the plane according to plans as a 3 channel trainer and don't foresee any crazy antics with it. Just something to learn on before my next plane.

Any advice/opinions you all have would be great. Thanks!
