I was at the field today between 14:00 & 15:00 all on my own , good flying too. There is a dead sheep along the fence line towards the gate from the pits, I saw the farmer so reported this to her. I hope no one had plans for a BBQ Smile .

Quick question - apart from C of G, AUW, and fuel consumption issues, is there any other problem in fitting a bigger engine than a model is rated for? say for example model that is rated for .40- .46 2 stroke engines, if it fitted ok, would there be any issues in fitting a .53? scratch

not at all the .53 maybe lighter anyway as they are usually bored out .46

it will be more fuel efficient as the throttle will be managed better due to the extra power

53 isnt to mush of a step anyway and has plus points as Rich says, only real downside maybe prop clearance as a .53 will want something like a 12x6 wear a .40 may well only use a 11x4 and my wife says an inch makes a huge difference.
