I have seen them flown with these 3 choices and all 3 have worked out fine.
3W 28
ZDZ 40
DLE30 (this is the Minimum power I would put in one)

Other good choices would be
OS GT 33
OS GT 38 (That would be insane)
Mintor 33
Mintor 38
DA 35

I think a DLE 30 would rock it , depends on your budget ... and I'd be worried about over powering that thing and blowing off the tail feathers I remember my u can do didn't like fast lines

most of all i think you want a strong mid range DLE 30's are not bad motor's .

and I'd be worried about weight to don't think that was a light airplane to start with..


that's my opinion happy flying..
