Might be a little overpowered, a 26 or even a 20fs is plenty.

G'day Mate, I've got an RZ, I have a 46 LA in it and it's a perfect match up so a FS 40 would do fine.

I take you are talking about a Four Stroke 40 and not the 2 Stroke 40 FSR ?

Anyway, I'll try to post a picture of mine over the weekend.

Cheers

I built one from scratch a few years back powerd by a nice Enya 40 Four stroke
, any 40 four stroke is a good match for this plane.

I have a Red Zephyr and it flew beautifully on an O.S.40 Surpass. It did need a bit of extra weight in the nose though. It was the perfect engine for the aeroplane.
I crashed the RZ and although there wasn't a great deal of damage I decided to recover it (Solartex) and re-engine it with my HP49 VT which is a bit heavier than the O.S.
I've since sold the O.S. and will post a photograph of the RZ when it's finished.
If I ever figure out how to upload the video to youtube from my Mac, then I'll post the footage that ends with the crash.

Looking forward to seeing her all finished. +1

I have a Lanzo RC-1 partially built from someone else sitting on a shelf, main wing and fuse no tailfeathers.
Wing is quite heavy and built super strong, not sure if I'll finish it or not.

Here are some photos of my RZ's
