Default RE: Engine for Midwest Super Stinker

I am building one and I am putting an OS 160 2 - stroke in it. I also had at my disposal a Brison 2.4, Saito 270 and a Q42, all these engines are much, too much heavy for this plane. I also own a MVVS 26cc and this engine does not have enough power to do this plane justice at all - about 800 rpm's less ( same prop ) than the OS on a muffler, so unless you can stuff the pipe in the fuse somewhere, forget it. A G38 - tooooooo heavy. Since I don't have it mounted yet I may replace the OS 160 with the new Saito 2.20 - now there's the engine for it.
