Would a Starduster 600 high thrust with an old K&B Green head 45 be okay for a lock down model?

IMHO- Too much power for a 600, but I don't like over-powering my airplanes. I think a 45, even an old one, could fly a 900 fine.

About the biggest engine I'd put on a 600 is a 25.

IMHO I think an S.T. G20/23 would be a perfect engine for it. Prop it with an APC 9 x 3 prop and it'll stand up on it's tail!!

Too much. ASIG ABC Scrambler will handle it. If you're careful.

I've seen many 600 Dusters with ST .23's on them but most used a 8x4 Cox gray prop.If it was me I'd reduce it to 500 and lengthen the fuselage some for a ST.23

Thanks for the replies. I just have the baffle piston green head 45 and was thinking of a home for it.

The Scrambler is only 572 squares. A Witch Doctor 800 might handle a .45

I have watched and timed Bob Hanford's Scrambler with a Greenhead 45 on it.
It wouldn't be my choice for D Gas but it flew fine. He also flys the same plane with a GOOD Johnson 32 or 35.
