Just a real quick question, I am looking at buying either a Deltie or Dee Cee Thunder or an upcoming contest where the event is E B/G.

I notice that these two gliders can use D Engines. Can I use these gliders with E Engines and if I can, do I need to make modifications either to the booster or glider?

Thanks

I've flown my Deltie Thunders on Aerotech E15 motors quite often. I haven't tried it on the Estes E9, but I think it would be fine.
