Default ZDZ 80 RV. Is it enough for a 24 lb ultimate?

Dear Sirs:

I have a ZDZ 80 and I'd like to use it in a World Models 76" Ultimate which is supossed to weigth 23 - 25 lb. The plane is recomended for 100 cc. I want to use it for 3D. What's your thinking? Would it be enough? In the same line ... which prop/muffler/can would be your choice for this application?

Thank you in advance.
Regards,
Javier

It should work very well. We recommend you use the new Supersonic pitts style muffler and the new ZM 26x10 Carbon prop for this combination.
The new ZDZ Super 80 would be a better match for a draggy biplane at 25lb.
Thanks,

Thank you, Mike. I already have the 80 RV, so I'll use it.

Hello again:

I can't find that brand in my country. Do you think there will be a great difference between BCM and Supersonic? How may rpm could be the difference?

Thank you a lot

Ragards,
Javier
