Re: Quickie 1 engine

That seems kind of odd. I've never met an active pilot that thought his plane had too much power. The 18 hp Quickie is pretty lame at high temps or altittudes. You will add about 30 pounds with the bigger motor and if you don't want to use the power, just don't push the throttle as far ahead. The fuel burn at similar horsepower settings (among the 2-strokes) is the same. But if you ever really need the extra power, you will need it badly. Whatever......

I want to aproach the original 18 HP with another engine. A 447 or 503 seems to be too much power...
