From what I have seen....they are the same plane. A .90 two stroke works great, and
the plane really moves right along too, considering the fat 4 inch thick wing. The only
thing I noticed about the flight was the fact that these deltas seem to "drop" out of the
turns a bit....with no fuselage to "glide on", they lose altitude in the turns more than a
regular plane.

The engine in mine is a high compression ASP engine, and on the day I went flying with
Kmot I forgot to take some 5% fuel along....so I couldn't fly the big Delta that day. []
