Designer's comments regarding engines: The G38 would be acceptable, though it is at the upper end of the power I would recommend. The model was not designed for high power, high speed flight. It was designed to replicate how the full size aircraft flew.

The G38 is a heavier engine, so this will increase the weight of the model. At 25lbs the model flies in a very scale like manner on the OS FT-160 twin. The power rating of the FT-160 is 2 HP, so it is not that strong. However, it is much lighter than the G38.

If it were my model, I would use an engine that is lighter and has less power.

If using the SuperTigre G3250 you would need an in-cowl muffler and would indeed require extensions to get out of the cowl. The G2300 would be a better choice, but it would also require an extension. Neither could use a standard muffler. Aerotrend has some silicone tubing that would work well. The G3250 and G2300 both have more power than the model needs, so good throttle technique is a must. The OS FT-160 twin was used on the original model and it also required extensions, but doesn't require a muffler. A piece of brass tubing was brazed onto the exhaust pipes of the engine. The sound and noise level were very acceptable. The OS FT 160 twin is by far the best engine for this model. It sounds great, has just the right amount of power, runs beautifully and fits completely in the cowl. UPDATE: 11-13-00 KZH

Per the designers the spinner used for the photos and the plans is the TruTurn one for the AT-6 Texan.
