    RE: Giant u can do gas conversion ?????

    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


    3W, BME and DA all the way. Proven power, Proven reliability and Proven support equals much cheaper in the long term.

    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..
