Question
Edge 540 engine

Not sure where this question should be, but.. I have an older AeroWorks Edge 540. It's never been flown, and currently has a YS 1.20 glow engine sitting in the nose. The airplane was sold as a 60-90 size airplane, and has a 65" wingspan. I'm trying to get away from glow engines, and wonder what size gasoline engine would fit in the nose, and provide adequate power. I have some experience with 50cc to 150cc gas engines, but know nothing about the 10 to 20cc gas engines that are currently available. Can anyone recommend a small gas engine that would be appropriate?

Thanks,
Larry Fitch

20cc for sure, pic your brand, from DLE, RCG, Valley View!

if your going with Life Batts, then I think DLE has the only hv ignition, the rest use 4.8v

Picking an engine

Does anyone have experience with the RCGF-T 21? I'm wondering if the little twin will fit inside the cowl, and can't find any dimensioned drawings on the web yet? The inside of the cowl is right at 8" wide, but don't know the sizes of the engine/ Anyone know?

Thanks,
Larry Fitch
