Default RE: What to put a gasoline motor on my Extra 300 1.60 airplane. NEED HELP!!

The manufacturer will probably support anything up through a 43cc or so. On Great Planes 1.60 aircraft, people are using mostly 40-50cc engines, with popular choices being the DA50, DL50, Brillelli engines in this range...etc. Some, like myself have even ventured into the lightened and modified 60cc engine. The DL50 is probably the best value, and has proven to be quite the keeper of an engine, with excellent support from Bob at DLUSA. There are plenty of newcomers in the 50cc market now, with some showing signs of being good engines as well, so you've got quite a good selection to choose from.
