Default OS 160 FX and 80" sundowner

Thinking about buying the OS 160 FX for my big sundowner...any thoughts on it? I can get one locally for about $250

Sounds a bit underpowered.

what would you suggest for a 2-stroke glow engine for this airplane? heard of a few guys running the Mark/Moki 180 and 210...or what about the big supertigre 3250? or maybe the OS BGX3500?

also looked at the avistar 210 from Sig

Mark/Moki 210 will cook.

I don't know anything about the Avistar 210, it may be worth looking into.

Mine flies fine with a ST 2300. Not as fast as the Moki. I don't know how the OS compares with the ST.

what prop are you turning on your ST powered sundowner? what fuel do you run through yours? I've heard that engine likes low nitro fuel best
