I'm assuming you put the DLE20 in the bigger revolver? How are the DLE20s in general? Pretty good and reliable?
I had the DLE-20 in the Revolver 70. I will be putting the same DLE-20 into the new Revolver 70 that is still in the box, waiting for assembly.
The OS .55AX has plenty of power for the smaller Revolver. Flew this model most of this past summer and everybody commented on what a nice flying plane and its performance.
Three projects for this winter are a presently being assembled Hanger 9 Christen Eagle, which will be powered by a Saito .91 Four Stroke.
Second is a Seagull Spacewalker II 1.20 , which I will power it with a new OS GT 22.
And finally, will be the Revolver 70 that I spoke of, which will get my DLE-20.
But if I were you, I would definitely go with a Revolver 70 and perhaps power it with a 4 stroke. But as I also said, the smaller Revolver is a great flyer with the OS .55AX.
I guess these days it all comes down to how much do you want to spend on the hobby.
I could say good luck with your choice, but if you pick a Revolver with a good power plant, you won't need the luck. Just somebody to wipe the smile off of your face at the flying field.
If you check the RCU Forums, you will find quite a few threads in regards to the Revolvers. Read them, then judge for yourself.
