Default WE Technical Goshawk

I am well into building Bill Effingerís F11C Goshawk and still havenít decided on an engine. Anyone know what Bill had in mind? I am thinking of a Zenoah G38 or thereabouts. 30cc other make? I have a G62 but think it is too much. Anyone disagree? Help.

okay. I found a reference to a Quadra, but is it the 35 cc version? If so, a G38 might be the best fit.

The G38 is a great running engine. Recently fired one up that was 16 years old still new in the box. Ran great though it did spit a lot of black out on the first tank, not so much from there on.

Another question. What negative incidence is recommended for the top wing?

Thanks Tony. I think I will use the G38. Need to set it up for a test run first.
