    I think apc made an 18x12 wide hub for the 4 bolts

    I wish manufacturers produced the smaller gassies with a single prop nut. It would open up a wide array of apc props in this size range, all reasonably priced
    NGH 35 is a single prop nut engine.I have heard many multi nut hubs failed on air(broken totally in a second) but none for single nut shaft yet.

    That's just not so. Single nut shafts have broken before, often right at the threads. If you have been in this hobby for over 40 years as I have, you seen the good, bad and ugly
    I prefer singles from simplicity and weight points of view. Precisely drilling 4-6 bolt holes in a prop hub isn't difficult if you have a drill press but is completely not necessary for anything smaller than about 80cc. That number of bolts is much heavier than a prop shaft extension and a single nut to hold the prop


    Hi Matt, I am in this hobby since 1977.I have heard failure of singles only on ground and while tightening not flying.(Heard several crank failures but never heard fly off of the plane, only broken cranks)
    But since last year I have heard at least 4 multi bolt hubs were broken on air.One of them 3W engine last month,I dont remember the size.

    RE: New DLE 35

    I love Falcon props on my Mintor 38cc engine: http://www.falconpropellers.com/falcon/carbon-fiber/.
    I run a 19x10 wood prop. It can spin a 20x6, but my plane doesn't have the ground clearance.
    Check them out. The wood props are lighter than XOAR.

    RE: New DLE 35

    I don't see the point for a motor this small to have 4 bolts.

    I have a DLE30 that I pulled out earlyer this year and it back fired at 1800rpms with a Xora 18X10 and broke off all 4 bolts.

    Then this week Iwas working on a PTE36R wich started acting fun and backfired at 5k with a Xora 20X6 prop and throw the prop 30feet onto the wall of my house. It broke them 2-3mm below the hub so takeing them out was going to be a pain.

    I perfer a single bolt, if it backfires the prop brakes loose but will not come off the shaft.

    The single bolt prop adapter that Valley View RC sells for the DLE-30 will work on the DLE-35RA, if you order it with an engine they will install it for you free.

    RE: New DLE 35

    the price should be 350.00 plus 65% tariffs of 227.50 for a total price of 587.50 plus tax and shipping that should be the fair market price !!!!!! that would make it fair competetion for our hourly rates , bet every one would then buy DA engines !!!!

    The fella at the Falcon booth at Toledo last year said that they are made by XOAR. I'd think, size for size, weights and performance would be similar

    I compared the XOAR 19x8 wood to the Falcon 19x10 wood. The Falcon felt lighter and has more of a scimitar shape to help reduce noise. Prices are comparable.

    RE: New DLE 35

    I think the answer is yes but before I place the order for the Drill guide. Is the DLE 30 and 35 the same?

    Denny,
    This is great. I was complaining about drilling all those holes last week. Just ordered one.

    I can't find the answer anywhere but conventional wisdom says yes. That would be a colossal screw up by DLE to make an engine so close in size and change the hole pattern.

    RE: New DLE 35

    WD thank you for looking. I am also, but till late next month I am in Afganistan and find it hard to call and ask sometimes. I have emailed valleyview and asked being that I am ordering props and the drill guide through them to be there when I get home. I am like you in that I believe it will be the same as the 30 witch I have 2 of. I have always just bought my props per drilled but I would like to get them with just the center hole now to have the option of using them on my single bolt G-38 if I want to.

    I have a DLE 35RA AND the drill guide. Yes, the 30 and 35 share the same prop bolt pattern.

    RE: New DLE 35

    Cool thanks guys. Rcguy59 one question. What prop sizes are you using on the 35 compared to the 30? I will be putting the 35 in a FW190. Thanks

    RE: New DLE 35

    I ran the first tank with an 18-8. Got a couple of 18-10's from ValleyView yesterday to make the first flights with. I'm hoping to be able to swing an 18-12 or 19-10. Time will tell. Leaving in a few hours to fly it. I'll tach it with the 18-10. I got 8400rpm with the 18-8 last week.

    RE: New DLE 35

    It flew! This 35 is more than enough power for a 16 lb. Bearcat. Takeoff and climbout were at less than half-throttle. The first flight was with the 18-8. Speed was good, more than adequate. The last two flights were with the 18-10. Noticeable difference. This thing hauls ***** ! It's faster than my 55cc P-47. The engine never missed a beat and ran great all day. It's a keeper. By the way, I read 7800 rpm with the 18-10 prop.

    I had a 20x6 Beechwood prop on a DLE30 and it pulled really good. I bet a bigger dia prop on the Bearcat may work good too. With the larger dia prop,it may hook-up bertter with more airflow past the big cowl on the Bearcat. Nice looking airplane by the way. Regards Capt,n

    I dont think a bigger prop will make the plane fly better. he went from a 8" pitch to a 10" and was much better plane. a bigger prop would mean less pitch so the plane would be doggy, yeah it may pull well but only to 50mph.

    Not to mention not enough ground clearance.
