The Jett-50 or 60LX would do the trick.... A Rossi-60 would be WAY to heavy for the Scatcat.

Thanks for mention wieght i was starting to look at a rosi .67 with tuned pipe but it will be way to heavy. the one i see fly everyday has an .46 FX and the cg is so nose heavy that every singl time it lands it cartwheels. [sm=72_72.gif] There tough little planes that can take on hell of a beating.

The Jett will work well as it does idle.

E Gads, I can't believe you even dared to mention a Evo in this forum. HAHAHAHAHA

HALE Rossi!!
They're heavy, the carbs are hard to set, they don't like nitro, etc, etc,
I've got 3 of them and love'em. Now Jett, makes a great engine, but all 3 of my pasta rockets didn't cost what 1 Jett will.

I know this is a little off subject, but it's Sunday morn, and I haven't had coffee yet.[>:]

Flying freak, here's a link to a RC'er who used sport engines in his Scat Cat:[link=http://images.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http://mypage.yhti.net/~dmcdnld/scatcat.jpg&imgrefurl=http://mypage.yhti.net/~dmcdnld/scatcat.htm&h=245&w=430&sz=30&hl=en&start=14&tbnid=lGsaHPJzA4F8hM:&tbnh=72&tbnw=126&prev=/images%3Fq%3DScat%2BCat%26svnum%3D10%26hl%3Den%26l r%3D%26ie%3DUTF-8%26sa%3DG]Scat Cat[/link]

bozilla Hate to take advantage of a grown man? Bet your Rossi 60 can not keep up with my little Jett 35 which turns a 8.75 X 9 a honest 18,800k and then unwinds like crazy in the air. There is flat no substitution for cubic inches and quality.

My old ScatCat had a Webra .32 and pipe...A nice combo as it was very light. I could out-turn and keep up with my buddies .40 'Cat. It's a little plane.

My Scat Cat was fast with a OS40VF Piped, cowled with race wheels and wing cut down 4 inches. Had aileron flutter issues, the ailerons need to be stiff if using a single servo with torque rods.

I dont know to be honest to startt off with not very fast il take it easy and learn the plane and get used to its handeling (hey thats why he have a trottel stick right??) so i figure once i get used to teh plane il crak her up. and for speed im sure after 2/3 weeks at it il be trying to sqeez every km/h i can get out of it.
