Like Bert stated you can get a RCexl ignition unit to replace it with. The ones with the 1/4x32 small spark plug cap would work OK with the engine.

You could go with a CH-Ignitions unit which would be the best to get, but it is more expensive though.

The only down side is that the O.S. is more expensive and nitro is more expensive. But the O.S. is lighter and more powerful.

So, are there actually people happy with this engine and have no problems? Any tips on running this engine?
*Tuning is not a problem for me. Thanks in advance
The NGH 9cc gas engine would work fine with the Paulistinha P56 airp;lane model. The engine isn't as powerful as other engines, but it would work Ok with the plane. A Evolution 10cc gas engine would be a more powerful alternative too, but it may be too powerful though. It sort of depends on your flying style too. But in anycase the NGH 9cc gas engine would work OK.\

But if you are a beginner with RC flying and don't have experience in using and running model airplane engines, you may be better served going with a 2 cycle glow engine at first though.

Rcxp is the latest and greatest ign. module. Basically an updated Rcexl, but smaller, and cheaper. I'm not sure if it's available with a 1/4x32 cap though? A call or an email should answer that question though. There's also an excellent warranty on anything he sells.

Not yet. I came across this NGH engine on HobbyKing at the same time as looking into buying a new plane. So did a bit of research and stumbled on this thread. If all else fails, I'm going with the O.S. 56 FS.

The plane does not need to be overpowered but hoping to have enough for vertical climb. I figured the 9cc would be too heavy (with a 4.8 to complete the setup). I do like power, but was planning on getting this plane to have a relaxing plane to fly.

Not a beginner in RC flying. But as mentioned above, if it will just cause me problems in the future, I might as well stick with the O.S. 56 FS.

If your gonna pop the wallet for the OS .56 you might want to consider the Saito FG-11 gas four stroke. Its a bit more money but you'll get the fuel savings of using gasoline. Otherwise the Evolution 10 is also a good option.

The Evo 15 and 20 just got revamped with a new pumper carb so it'll be interesting to see if the 10 does as well.
