Saito FG-61TS

Fits well with no cowl cut outs required, balances well, sounds nice, looks nice and flies it well. Check the video of Ali Machinchy (designer) flying XCub - Saito.

the Valach 60 might be a good match, but it's a single cylinder. The sound is great and in a lot of ways they're better designed than the glow derived Saito.

Thank you all, after check on Ali's comments we decide to go with the Saito 61, expensive yes, but looks like a prefect match for the plane.
