Default RE: which is best 26-35cc engine?


ORIGINAL: CK1

Which is more important to you in an engine, power or longevity ?
I think they are both great engines in their own rights . The DLE 30 is more powerful than the Zenoah 26, and the RCexl Ign on the DLE is as good as any out there . The Zenoah engine will last a life time but the Zenoah ignition consumes a lot more energy than any other ignition . Both engines are reliable and easy to start . I do feel that the DLE takes longer to break in and is more sensitive to temperatures than the Zenoah, so that proper cooling is a bigger factor with the DLE .

The current Zen engines are fitted with a new ignition very similar to the RC exl unit in both looks and power consumption.
