You might try Batteries America. Also known as MR Nicad.

What engine did you put on your Super Sportster 20? That's a really neat little plane. I had one about ten years ago with an OS 25 FP on it. It flew great, but I can't help wondering what it would have been like with an engine that burns fuel a lot faster.

Put an afterburner on the .25? <g>
Sorry, but that was needing comment. ;-)
It was cute the way you put it, instead of just saying "I wonder how much faster that sucker would fly and climb with a way too big engine on it?"

The main thing I've noticed about engines that are "way too big" is that they tend to "weigh too much". I was thinking of a 25 sized engine that's built to produce more power, rather than a 40.
I found a Super Tigre 29 at a swap meet a few years ago, and I've always wanted to put it on a New Era or a Super Sportster 20.

A .32 or .36 is usually a bored out .25.
Same crankcase, more displacement.
A .40 FP is an excellent substitute for a .25.
It's a larger crankcase, but not much heavier.
I presume that the LA series is in the same weight range. Or a Thunder Tiger GP.

It should work fine.

Oh, it has the "as shown in the plans" OS 25FP. I have an Irvine 25 that I considered for the plane but its red which would have blown the Steelers (7-2) color scheme. Probably should have used the GMS .32 I have but too late now. I thought about retro-fitting a BB engine but would have had to completely rebuild the front end. I think I am getting a little more oomph out of the 25FP tho since I added a MACS one piece muffler. Its not much louder than most electrics with that pipe and I know its quieter than some of the screaming brushless motors at the field.

That's the same way I built mine, and I thought it flew pretty well. I've never been into planes that fly like rockets, but there was something about the Super Sportster 20 that made me wonder what it would be like with an OS 25 SF or similar engine.
I just finished a Cloud Dancer 40 and test flew it with an OS 40 FP. I wondered whether it would be too slow with this engine, but there were no problems at all. The Cloud Dancer flies like a cross between a pattern plane and a Telemaster. You could have fun with a 25 FP on it, and a 46 would be ridiculous. I have another one just like it ready to cover. The plan was to sell one of them, but I'm thinking of flying it first with an OS 40 Surpass 4 stroke just to see how well it flies. The one with the 40FP is just about perfect. I think the only thing left is to add a 4 stroke engine.

The Super Sportster planes just plain look fast even sitting on the ground in my opinion. I had the option of using a Saito .30 but decided to go for the "stock" 25FP. I bought one of the SS40 original (not the MKII) kits with the idea of converting to twin engines. Even got the MAN or RCM or whoever conversion plans but just havent gotten around to it yet. The plan was to use two Saito 30's but I might use ST .34's instead. Only problem is that the three ST 34's ALL have different mufflers. Oh well.

Ted shuffled out of his cave and grunted these great (and sometimes not so great) words of knowledge:

The Venture is made by BTE not Goldberg.

I know, but Glowplug twelve who took this thread off topic and who you appeared to be responding to was talking about the Eagle 2 trainer plane made by Goldberg.
And I do agree that it is a shame the Venture 60 has been discontinued. I would have liked to have one.

This is a young fellow(15 or so) who's intrested in building. Lets help him out. Even I'm not sure how that web based news gruops works(i'm using OE) If I can get the plans scanned I'll send them. I think I may also have a book that's help. More later, mk

Well, He can download a PDF file of the manual from here http://www.carlgoldbergproducts.com/airplanes/gbga0056.html .
As for the plans, I hope you have a wide format scanner. It might b cheaper for him to pay Goldberg $20 for a set of plans, than trying t find someone to print them out from a file you send him
