It will fly on the Z38, but it won't be no pylon racer.

Slow and steady will be the order of the day.

I re-engined mine eith a DLE55RA. it was a perfect match. A bit overpowered, but not overly but it was a delight to fly, which i did fir 3 years before selling it on.

Just my 2p's worth.

To be fair Charlie, the full size Hurri was no pylon racer either..what wingspan is the BH Hurri?

Ah- its almost the same as the DB. Here are a couple of pics I took when I fitted my 38 to my DB Hurricane. Hope they help.

Thank you all very much for your advice. Will attempt to put the Z38 in. Would rather it fly a bit slower than a pylon racer. Just have to be careful with take offs and landings if slightly underpowered.

Recommend getting a carb bend if you dont already have one.
