    C/G balance within in a normal range (25 to 33% of MAC) is NOT optional. It will not fly (under control) if not in that range. Having a lighter total RTF weight makes for a better flying airplane but...

    Another issue that will come up if you go with an over the top too large engine will be prop clearance. A larger engine will REQUIRE a larger diameter prop and at some point it won't work without a...

    MARK JR, You had better check (measure) the cowl length on your Kadet before commiting to shoe horn in a large engine. For the overall size of the plane the engine compartment is on the short side....

    What John said without exactly writing down the words is "Don't reuse that RX". I fully agree. To put that RX in your new plane would be a crap shoot with bad odds. "Smart money" would only install a...
