Default small gas engines?

Just wondering if anyone has compiled a list of the currently available small gas engines? I am buying a plane that will need a .55 size 2 stroke or .82 size 4 stroke. I am considering going gas with it.
thanks
Jeff

Replying to the thread as I am also interested in small gas mills. Glow fuel is headed over 30 dollars a gallon here and I have found my 44 cc Tartan so much cheaper to run. Still like flying smaller planes so interested in an engine that can go the long run in the same size you are looking for.

OK for small gasoline (petrol) engines. You have the NV-Engines GX40 gas engines which is a 6.5cc or .40 cu in displacement engine. Then there is the NGH 9cc gas engine and a NGH 17cc one also. That leads into the Evolution 10cc gas engine and a they have a Evolution 15cc gas engine as well. Saito has a FG-14 14cc gas four stroke engine. There is also the RCGF 15cc gas engine (and a RCG one too).

So you have a number of choices to choose from. I would suggest going with a Evolution engine which would work well for you.
