Another nice thing about DA and their engines, If the owner wrecks his plane and engine, whether he bought it new or is second or more owners, DA Repair only charges for parts and not labor. Not sure about the other companies’ engines. I really don’t care what you buy. No gain or loss to me. I just want the most reliable engine for planes that maybe a true kit built where time in the project is more valuable than the cost. If it’s an ARF, wreck it, just buy another. Big deal!
It's usually operator error when a RCGF doesn't run right as well, you know like the post you are trying to use to back up your claim. But I doubt people I've known with problems, who have owned dozens of DA motors over the years are operator error.
