It's good to see some modelers are still using gas-burners instead of electirc. I think the vapor trail of castor oil behind the planes is particularly appropriate for models of rotary kites :).

The only problem I see with engine power in models is the vibration and fuel proofing required, so that the airframe is especially heavy and overbuilt. I wouldn't attempt to model something with an engine if I was trying to capture the feel of an old kite's fight envelope. Especially if the plane is a lattice tail.

 

I've seen far too many scale WWI models that charge around like they were WWII fighters.
