Default Dumas Staggerwing Rubber power

Would my Cox .010 be too much power for this 17.5 inch model? I read several builds for electric power which were successful but none for glow. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

What's the weight? My pageboy weighs just under 5 ounces and flies really well.

The only problem is the size of the prop. The TD .010 only runs well on the Cox 3" prop.
Check the dia of the cowl for this kit?

A Cox PeeWee .020 might be better with its 4.5" prop and gentle running, a 17.5" span Dumas bipe like the " Staggerwing" might be too much for a TD .010 anyway!

I think you are right.....the .020 would be a wiser choice as the cowl on the beech looks to be about the same diameter as the span of the 3 inch .010 prop. I have several Pee Wee .020's that would work fine. Thanks you guys.

Here's the two Cox props with the plastic cowl supplied with the kit.
