Hi Tom
There are some really good engines out there today, personally I would go for the Zenoah 80 from Toni Clark (Practical Scale) Germany, its a good strong engine and very very reliable. You can even have an electric starter fitted if you really want to go the extra mile

Hi dave the only problem i may have with that is the manifold been on the top of the engine and will be close to the cowl and I'm trying to get away from that if i can

Have a look at the DLE twins. I like my DLE engines a lot, though they are singles.
