    Corky! Put a good 3W 75-85 in it or if you want the go big and put the DA 85 in her.. 100 is just too much. Unless of course you talk to PLANEBENDER who has that exact plane with a DA 100 on floats and does tail dips with her all day long..

    So far, I think I'm leaning towards a new 3W 75ius with a pitts muffler. No firewall mods needed plus it will somewhat fit under the cowling. I just want to make sure it has enough power to float fly. I also liked the idea of having her jugs hanging out both sides.

    Funny, Funny --- I thought they would come premounted on a class one airframe, and the airframe would be ready to slide into the cocpit.

    I HATE RCU! I have no idea as to what's going on and can't get a reply. I guess I'm going to assume that I jumped the gun on getting this engine so I'm back in the market for an engine. I'm also thinking that maybe I should just get a 100cc engine. I know it will be over powered but I would have an engine that would fly SOOOOOO many airframes. So as of now, I'm back to searching.......

    If you're not looking to hover it but just fly it around and still have unlimited vertical (I'm sure), I know somebody with a ZDZ60 for $350.00, which should fly it just fine. I would install that engine in my Super Cub if I were to keep it.

    Jens, hovering is what I do at the field all the time! I hover around BBP and then Painter and then on to Neal. When thirsty, I hover by our flying van (beer). If you mean with my Cub then no, I won't / can't hover it. I just want enough power to fly it with floats and have some nice vertical. SO, I'm back to the 3W 75IUS. Its got 7.5hp but only one jug....oh well, I'll get over that. Thanks for the offer though.
