    Very nice plane, will be my next project. I would like to go with a zenoah g26a engine. Has anyone tried this combo? I would appreciate any feedback.

    G26 would be perfect. It's sized just right for that engine.

    Jason,
    I have a 25cc weedeater conversion mounted in the nose of the Aeronca Champ. Seems to have lots of pull with 18X6 prop. Just about finished with it and will be getting airborne soon. I will let you know how it likes the engine

    Hi,
    We can get parts if needed. I'm not sure if the plane will be available again though.
