Default DLE 20 RA in a U-Can-Do 3D

Has anyone tried a DLE 20 RA in a U-Can_Do-3D? Will it fit inside that narrow cowling? Will the engine over heat? Is it too much for that model to handle? Besides a Saito 100 is there another more powerful engine option or would I just be asking for trouble? I really would like to get away from nitro fuel.

Thank you.

I bought a 20ra and the recommended dubro mount and the mount doesn't fit. the beams aren't long enough. the only solution according to hobbico is to use a nylon mount and cut it up so the muffler fits. i wasn't wiling to do that so i bought a side exhaust one.

Im planning on using this in the RCM 1.20 Cloud dancer. I know that you can get a rear mounting plate to stand off mount the engine (http://www.seaplanesupply.com/aluminum.htm). i was planning on doing the U-can-do 3D but found the cloud dancer a little more appealing (i have flown the .40 size so i think stepping up to a 96" may be a new alternative).
