Airframe for an old version ZDZ 80B2 RV

I bought this engine from a fellow RCC'er and it comes with the stock I believe Falkon ignition and Bisson mufflers.

It is of the older version whereas the crankcase is an integral part of the cyliner castings. Seems to have cast iron liners and cast iron pistons.

That being said, heavy is a given but I still want to use it. What sort of airframe should it be used on? wingspan, weight, may be the previous owner/s can chime in too.

Is that the inline twin? I know of a WW I biplane project that's at least 10yrs old in rural Alberta that was built around the inline 80. Hope that helps, SE5A 1/4 scale I beleive.

Re: Airframe for an old version ZDZ 80B2 RV

HI Alex,
I bought it from Randy, between the 2 of us, we didn't really use it much, I took it out as soon as I bought the plane from Randy, it was too heavy for the extra, Randy bought it from James Bisson, who I beleive bought new, My guess is the engine would be good for a giant scale project, not needing much power, but lots of weight in the nose. The weight of the plane ready to fly with this engine should be around 22 to 23 lbs, hope that helps.
