If you want to keep as much cowl as possible get a DLE 55 (2 stroke) and a Jtech muffler made especially for that engine and that plane.

I think we would want to know as to how big your plane is and what the recommended engine sizes are first. Giant scale is anything from a 1.20 size 2 stroke engine to over 200cc multi-cylinder engines.

Oh there you go again,using common sense.....But you're right...I hung a G-62 in a Pica Horse,just so I could turn a 4 blade prop...heavy,but so nice with that black blur in front.
I equated flying that thing to "breaking" a Mustang Horse.Tough to conquer,but decent to deal with,once you learned it's habits.


Who's kit is it,and what size?

There I go, jumping to conclusions. After re-reading the OP's request, I have no idea who's P-51 he is referring to.

Well Tom,the sizes we build automatically need big engines...but thanks for 'manning'up....that's how we get 'em to trust us.
