Default RE: ESM FW D-9

Yes, Phil sent these pics to me and informed me that it was indeed a G62 in this aircraft. You can see the small amount of head exposed, which completely coincides with the 1/5th scale TA 152 plans I am building from. The Andersen TA 152 is designed for a DA 50cc engine. The G62 is 1" shorter. Also the lay down carb assembly I purchased keeps it in the cowl as well. I am aware that the entire engine will not be concealed, but it will be for the most part other than the plug. That is good enough for me, as this is the size engine I want in this aircraft. The main reason for my post was to inform people of a muffler option for their D9.
