For a 1.8 m wing-span aircraft I would use a glow engine instead of a gasoline engine.
I can recommend the OS 160FX and the Moki 1.80 or 2.10 engines, all have awsome power to weight ratio and are readily available in Europe. For four-stroke engines the Saito 1.80 or 2.2 comes to mind. Another alternative is the YS160-DZ, that engine however needs at least 20% nitro making it expensive to run in Europe, where nitro is very expensive.

There are a ton of aircraft available in the 1.8 m range. Most ARFs in that size range are for aerobatics. Do a web search. Some Europen brands that should be available to you are:

Graupner Laser 200,
Protech Staudacher S600, Giles 202 or Extra 300,
Hacker CAP 232,
JR Models Cap 232 or Diablotin 2000,

the list goes ever on...

With aircraft this size what you will most likely experience if you go gas is low power, high weight and a lot of vibrations ;-).
Most of the 1.8 m aircraft available are designed with glow engines in mind.
Gas engines are much better suited for bigger aircraft.

In general, with 2 m+ aircraft gas engines are a better choice.
