Default RE: spe-26 in big stick

Even with a 61 two stroke , the plane tends to be nose heavy. i would advise converting to a taildragger, relocating the rudder and elevator servos behind and beefing up the frontend. Karol has a zenoah G20 in it and flies well. The spe26 is definitely not a powerhouse-I've junked mine.At best i could only get 7400 on a 17x8 on rcexl ignition which should be more than sufficient for the big stik. This engine shakes a lot at idle so I'd go over the weak spots with glue especially the tailplane where at idle, the tail shake can be scary.
