I've seen several Senior Telemasters fly and the small engine on this plane almost looks rediculous but it does fly on an OS or TT 46 however has a bit more command with the .61 engines. Its a large airplane but has such light weight that is flys very well. Its designed to be a very docile and forgiving trainer large enough to be easily visible to the student pilot.
I wouldn't put a larger engine than the .61 OS or TT. it would take away from the built in charateristics of this plane and when you see it fly you will understand why it is totally un-necessary!
PS: I am flying a big boxy trainer type plane that weighs about 12 lbs with a 60 size engine and it flys very well. Its all in the type and design and todays engines are more powerful than the older types! Hope this offers some help.
