Default Spacewalker power

Has anyone put a G-38 in a 1/4 scale (Seagull) Spacewalker? I have a G-38 spare and it needs wings. If not the 1/4 Spacewalker, then I'd be happy to hear some suggesions. Can't break the bank either.

Thanks

I have a Great Planes 80" span Spacewalker with a Saito 60 twin in it. Plenty of power for Scale like flight

<div style="margin: 0in 0in 10pt"><span style="line-height: 115%; font-size: 9pt">Ok here we go. I have had and still have a 1/4 scale space walker. I at one time only used and sold Zenoah engines. My original space walker I fitted with a G 38 it flew very nicely. I now have a 1/4 space walker and it is fitted with a DLE 30. The DLE 30 although smaller CC is much lighter than the G 38. The power to weight ratio is far better than the Zenoah. As for 30 cc size gassers I would always use DLE 30 or DLE 32 never the G38 Now realize I just have to reach into the stock room and pick my preference on any given day. PS due to the lighter weight of the DLE 30 or DLA32 You will have fewer problems with balancing a nose heavy G38 equipped Spacewalker.
The only Zenoah I still use is the Zenoah G 20 Ei. It is a modern engine built for radio control. It is nice and light and powerful. It is made from alloys and has a good weight to power ratio.
After you choose I would be interested in what engine you choose and why.</span></div>

Thanks. A lot of good information. Here's the issue. I have a G-38 and I'm looking for a set of wings to put it in. I like the Spacewalker and I know the 1/3 scale is too big for the 38. So I was hoping that someone would recommend the 1/4 scale for the engine.

Cheers

I've got the 80" Spacewalker, flying it with an O.S. 120 4 stroke. Flies like a dream. ACF
