Default Question DLE20 in a 60 size Topflight gold edition corsair

Has anyone stuffed a DLE20 in the 60size Top Flight gold edition F4U Corsair. What is the opinion of the Guru's out there, do you think it would be practical. I realy want to start flying more gas plus a good 120 four stroke nitro is a little cost prohibitive for this project. I bought this kit partialy assembled and think it will be a little on the heavy side when done.

All help will be appreciated.

DLE 20 is equivalent to a 120 glow. Have not done what you asked but like the gas train of thought. You'll save lots on fuel alone over glow. Maybe look to fit a 23-26cc? Think that would really haul the mail!

Lots and lots of people running DLE-20's in TF Gold Edition Warbirds. Here's 56 pages of "what'ca using a DLE-20 for" that you can peruse at your leisure.

I have the Dle 20 in the P-40 arf and it fits really well with nothing hanging out. The round cowl should be no problem with a pitts muffler, got one gooing into a P-47. Makes these babies rock!

Got one in the .60 mustang. Couldn't be happier with it.

I'm putting a DLE20 in a Tiger 60, will do the nessasary improvements while building to support it. Not that much difference in weight over a 120-4 and nearly 1/2 the price Leroy
