Engine for a 1/4 SE5a

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!

I have been a good boy all year and Mrs Claus is getting me the Balsa USA SE5a 1/4 scale kit. The recommended engine is a 4C 1.2-1.4 or a gas 25-30.

Any suggestions for or against a particular engine / brand / style? This will be my first model with a 'big' engine.

Thanks in advance.

Saito 150. The engine I'm putting on my SE5A. Mine's well under way, construction wise, and hopefully I'll get the time at some point to put up a thread, but meantime, if you have any questions at all, plse don't hesitate to contact me. I've got a pile of documentation as well, so can share that.
