Either the new zenoah 20 cc, or the gas conversion of the supertigre .90.

The new BME G90 will be OK, although you will need to add lots of tail weight, maybe half a pound. With a 27 oz YS 110 in the nose, I had to add a couple oz of lead in the tail of the stock H9 Corsair.

Thanks guys,
I got your email Richard, I really don't want to be that heavy. I think the YS or the Saito probably is the best route. Do you agree?

Do you know what the zenoah weighs?

I believe the 20cc Zenoah is 33 oz.

33 oz is too heavy for the H9 Corsair. You want the engine to weigh less than 27 oz. Otherwise you will be adding tail weight.

I think I will stick to the Saito 100. Thanks for the help.
