Hello All,

I will be starting A ziroli T6 after christmas. just ordered the plans and the giant box of wood from National Balsa. For those of you looking for the cowl and canopy. Ziroli has a link to purchase them right on there website makes life easy as swiping the credit card.

I want to start building mine soon. Getting back into the hobby after a lengthy break. Pt60 is almost done to get feet wet again. Anyone have any idea on how the horizon hobby 9 cylinder radial would fly this plane and if it would fit in the cowl? I really really want to use that engine!

I can measure it for you ? G 45 and G 62 both fly them painted and glasses!
Back in the racing days G 62 and a APC racing prop flew airframe over 100 mph! Post your build as you go

i originally planned on either a G62 or even the twin GT80. but i think the 9 cyl would look and sound awesome! it measures just a bit over 10" in diameter
