CYMAZ,

I love my 120 and also bought the 60 for my Yak. I have been absolutely beating this plane (3D) for three years and the engine still runs strong. Had to replace the carb and intake once but that's it. Also for what it's worth, Mike from Mile High RC still carries them, he wouldn't be if there are issues I'm sure.

HP ratings on model engines are best guesses, I dont even bother with the published figures.

Reading the manual for the 120cc, it's a bit short on detail about running in!

It says not to use synthetic oil. It gives no indication on what oil to use, %'s , and how long the running in should be. I have emailed the factory so hope to get a reply in the near future.

Meanwhile, would anyone like to share their running in tips and experiences??

I'm going crazy trying to make up my mind on a 35cc motor for a 1/4 scale Katana.

looking at the EME 35s specifications compared to the DLE 35s and the new RCGF 35ra, it would seem the EME is down on power, has anybody had experience with the EME 35 vs the DLE 35ra?
I have noticed that I've seen a lot of used DLE 35ra for sale, I have never seen a used EME 35 for sale, that alone says something.

I suspect there isn't the volume of EME engines in the market compared to the DLE brand...


here is the utube of my 120 cc first run. Miss out the first 2 minutes, I left the ignition switch off

Unless you setup a test where you're doing a static pull test with the same prop and fuel on the same day then you're not going to have a real comparison. Looking at manufacturer published HP figures is nothing more than marketing and guesswork for the most part.

A local friend has several DLE35 and one EME35. All run very well. From watching them perform, the DLE may have the power edge but I wouldn't have any problems owning either engine. The EME picked up quite a bit of power during the break in process .... a more noticeable increase than some other engines. The EME comes with a very small muffler which translates to loud but the DLE 35 muffler isn't noted for being overly quiet. The EME uses 5mm prop bolts compared to the more common 4mm used on the DLE and other engines in that size range.

For me (and I own a DLE35) buying another 35 would boil down to which engine fit the application the best. If the rear exhaust would work out the best, I'd buy the DLE. If a side exhaust would fit the best, the EME would be high on the list.

Default Rpm

Hey what's everyone getting for rpm on their eme 120? I was getting around 6450 on the ground with a falcon 28x9.5. What I really want is lots of prop rip, so I went down to a falcon 28x8w. But I get the exact same rpm.... is there a rev limiter I am unaware of ? I figured I would of got a little more going down in pitch. Both props are carbon.

Any suggestions ? Or recommendations ?

thanks

jason

Thats not apples to apples, the W means wide blade, so there's more blade.

I know what the w means, it's not a whole lot more blade on the wide falcons. Plus that's 1.5 degrees less pitch. Exact same rpm doesn't really make any sense

my 60 looks good on the outside but it has never been what I call a premium engine that could be compared to a DA or a DLE for that matter

It's hard to start unless I use an electric starter , but it does seem to run strong. I have a DA60 and no other 60 class engine that I've seen comes close to the power and ease of operation It has

Need help with an EME 60 carb issue. I have several decades of experience with glow but only 10 or so years with gas. My EME has a couple of hours on it and I use largish props. I noticed early on the high speed needle had little effect. I assumed it was the large props but the other day I started richening the high speed needle and there was no effect. I counted 10 turns out. So, I went the other way trying to get a sag from being too lean. I actually closed the high speed needle and there was no change. The low speed needle was open 3.5 turns and it runs this way but I am concerned.
Contacted Mile High and got a vague response that did not address my question. So, can anybody tell me how this is even possible? Mile High sells "genuine" Walbro carbs for the engine, but I was told it is already a genuine Walbro. Any enlightenment is welcome?

3.5 turns on your low end needle could be too much, remember the low end affects the entire range of operation. This could the the reason why you high end needle has little to no effect.

Suggest you try starting over the tuning process, set high end to 2.5 and low to 2 turns out and tune from there. Remember to properly warm up the engine and make very slight adjustments at a time.
