    Evolution 10cc on SIG FOUR-STAR 40?

    What do you think? Too much engine?

    You may have trouble getting it to land. It may continue flying with the engine at idle.

    Based on what I've read, gassers at that size (ie under 15-20cc) don't generally produce anywhere as near as much power as a nitro motor the same size, and you'll end up adding extra weight (CDI ignition and it's battery) on an airframe not generally built to handle it, so all you often end up with is an underpowered heavy and not as fun plane.
    Units like the DLE20 normally produce a good amount of power more than their 4 stroke nitro counterparts (of the same capacity), and are normally used on airframes where the weight penalty is not so much of an issue (and one that the extra power over-rides anyhow)

    A member at our club has that combo and it is a screamer! It can be slowed down and lands just fine. I'd say go for it if your so inclined. Fuel cost will definitely be cheaper.

    I actually think that will be a good combination. You'd likely want the 15cc for the Four Star .60
    Electric RC planes are like non-alcoholic beer, they are OK in a pinch if the real thing is not available.
