Agree Brad, simply because most planes flown with the 20-40cc sizes were common with glow engines...back in the day....which poses another question...when did start calling a Saito 150 a large glow engine??

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

I wish the FS-Airplanes was separated into electric, glow and gas. When looking for a 100cc bird it is a pain to go through all the park flyers and other planes in the mix

As far as large engines, I think 20cc and larger seems ok.
