DLE30!

Here are the first released pictures of the new 30cc engine from DLE that will be out mid July. Kind of cute, kind of different, hope it lives up to the spec sheet! Still no word on price yet though.

Side carb? You gotta be kidding !!!!!!!!!!!!!

A lightweight with quite impressive specs. and if it runs anything like the other DL's it will be making headlines. It would have been nice to see it having a bit narrower footprint but I guess all those guys with big cowl models will be smiling. Looks like the next few months are going to be interesting times with two new 30cc engines about to make their debut, and we can only benefit from it.

Definatly not something I'd try. I guess their safety standards are a little different.
On another note I was surprized at first on the carb set up as well. But when you think about the target this engine is designed for it needs to be very short to fit into allot of the 120 size planes. At least going with a side carb/rear induction it isn't as wide as it would have been it they had put the reeds on the side of the crank like some engines.

Jody... Please keep us posted! I love my little CRRC Pro .26 but could use a little more punch. I'm interested in price, performance and availability. (Aren't we all?.?.) There are soon to be other choices. ;) http://www.rcuniverse.com/forum/m_88..._9/key_/tm.htm

another 30cc offering for us 120 sized fliers, I am loving this! I too am excited to hear what pricing and tach numbers on an 18x6 prop

Can someone translate the weight on the scale into ounces?

2.4 lbs with everything.

I bet it is alot cheaper than $429.00 (most of you should know what engine I am referring to) and you will probably be able to get it through DLUSA.com so you know the after sale customer service will be there. If it is like the rest of the DL engines then we know the performance will be there.

The designer of that $429 U.S. engine said it was never meant to compete with Chinese engines, because it can't. He's not going to market on price.

i can believe that as us USA types like to make money in business and us workers like to be paid top dollar so it a knife to the fight:D

JoeAirPort 06-27-2009 06:03 PM

RE: NEW DLE30!
 
The DLE-30 will probably not be sold on price either. Actually DL's are not that cheap compared to other Chinese engines ($410 for the 55). They don't seem to bey selling on price because they have a pretty good engine and have a decent distributor network and support.

Too bad it's side carb and side exhaust. It won't work for many warbirds. I wonder why they changed to a side carb?

JoeAirPort; NIB DL55 can easily be bought for under $260 a piece. ;)

For the DL30, I wasnt expecting side carb with this one..
If it outruns MLD28 then it will take its place quite fast, and be a best seller.

Would have been a nice feature to have a single centre prop bolt / nut arrangement.

the side carb wont matter on my CAP 232 that has a huge cowl to hide under but it will most def not work on my warbirds that have slender cowls i.e. Stuka

either way I look forward to this coming out

Plus $40 shipping? Still that's pretty cheap. I guess I was talking about buying it from local US distributors like ValleyViewRC. I don't like ordering mine direct from China.

Any news on how much $$$ ?

$239 retail

SunShyne 07-07-2009 05:43 AM

RE: NEW DLE30!
 
are they available yet? Wondering if any local vendors have them yet?

jedijody 07-09-2009 06:07 PM

RE: NEW DLE30!
 


OK folks, as usual the rumors and speculations have been very inaccurate, the retail price for the DLE30 is $319, they are listed on our website now and pre-orders are being taken. Expected arrival is still around the end of the month.
