I have an older heliu that I have an os.32 engin in as it was the recommended size. I have been looking at new helis/engines and all engines are now bigger. OS's smallest is .37 and thunder tiger is .39. Is ther estill a use for the smaller .32 engines? Thunder tiger's raper 30 size heli calls for a .39 size engine.

If you just like to fly for a long time on little fuel and you don't feel the need to do crack 3D the 32 is an excellent choice. Otherwise just go straight to a 50 as the 37s and 39s arn't as good as a 50 for 3D.

Anything is possible if you don't know what you are talking about!

Yep,
The OS32 will keep you up in the air for an age on a 30 size rappy.
30 size really isnt for anything to exciting but great for getting the basics down and building up stick time for learning...

Might be a little pushed for scale...

So a .32 will work in a rappy 30 even though it calls for a .39 engine size?

will work fine. You'll love the flight times and if you aren't pushing it hard, 15% nitro is good to go too. Back in the day, that's all we had to choose from unless you jumped to a .60. My last .30 machine was a shuttle with an OS .32 in a Jet Ranger fuse. Flew very sale like, but it wasn't going to blow your hair back performance wise, though I still looped and rolled it with the fuse...

I learned how to fly on a Shuttle ZXX and OS-32 SXH. That engine ran great and had plenty of power.
