DLE 20 for Eindecker 90 ?
 
Mounted a DLE 20 in my Aeroworks Extra 300, but have not even fired it up yet. Already thinking about my upcoming winter build, which I think will be a Balsa USA Eindecker 90.
Also thinking about a DLE 20 in the Eindecker. Any opinions or other recommendations ? My other engine choice for this build would be a Saito 91. :D

Go with the DLE 20.

Once you go gas, you"ll never go back.

It will be over powered.

The DLE 20 has the power of a Saito 150.

I've seen a lot of BUSA Eindeckers and they all had 90 size four strokes with power being no problem.

I have a bigger Eindecker kit from SR batteries with a G26. Perfect match, great kit and super flier

The latest beam mounted 15cc offering from RCGF might be a good power choice for your model.

Balance is the deal to me. If I had to add weight to the .91s nose to balance, then the DLE20 would be going in. I can always manage the throttle.

But I like lots of power ! You can always manage it with throttle control ................ :D

Thanks for the advice guys. Got plenty of time to decided on which engine. Who knows, another manufacturer may come out with another fantastic motor, before I am ready to purchase. :eek:

I just viewed the SR Eindecker. Looks like a very nice build, but a little large for my hangar. ;)

I built one. (SR Batteries Eindekker) It goes together very nicely and looks great. The landing gear is a bit complicated and takes some time to solder all up, but it is really no big deal if you just do it a step at a time. It is a very nice kit. I used a Honda GX31 four stroke on mine. It was a little underpowered for my taste, but it would loop from level flight. Neat airplane.

Hello!

I'm waiting on my Balsa USA Eindecker kit and have a DLE 20 waiting on it. :)
Hope Balsa USA is quick with the kit.

Anybody find any hints going forward, I'd sure appreciate the updates...

Take care:D
