Can't go wrong with the G35...... After-all remember that this lit was designed around the Q35 back in the day when we didn't have the options of today.
I once few one with a ST 3000, and it was plenty powerful enough for a Sunday Flyer....... which it really what the airplane is meant for.

Hey Brian, long time no see! Hope you can make it out to our Tuesday Timmies this winter. Look forward to talking to you!
I don't believe that Zenoah makes a G35. My new engine is a G38. Just picked it up yesterday! Zenoahs are very nice looking engines and I am very happy with the performance of my G23 so the G38 should be no exception!
I priced both the new G26 and the G38 and its hard to believe that both engines are exactly the same price but they are so thats a bonus as far as I am concerned. Great value for the dollar for sure!
I'm pretty much now converted to all gas engines exceipt for a couple of Saitos which I don't plan on parting with!

If scale appearance means anything to you Gary,be aware the G38 is going to require cutting holes in the cowl for the carb to stick out and very likely the exhaust too,depending on the muffler design.
The original model was designed around a ST 3000 for exactly that reason.
A rear intake variable timing gasser would have been the best choice for starting,fit,mid range and scale appearance if as I say that is important to you.
This model flies on its thick huge high lift wing regardless of how much power you put up front and the G38 is a good match from that point of view.
Dont even think about building the wing in one piece regardless of how big your transport may be.The Sig tongue and slot wing outer mounting method works like a charm.
The model will do all normal aerobatics from level flight you will find with 38ccs.
