Engine options were numerous — even four tiny model-aircraft motors were used at the 1938 Nationals to demonstrate its modest power demands in order to fly, which it did, piloted by Dick Granere). Many were later converted to Continental A-40 to -65 power.
 
The CW-1A Junior of 1933 (ATC 2-442) was a single CW-1, NC11851, as a test bed for a 35hp Augustine B4-40 engine.
 
Two CW-1S Junior were built in 1936 (ATC 2-525) as CW-1 with 40hp Salmson AD-9 engines.
