Default U Can Do 60 or SF for a DLE 20?

I've got a DLE 20 needing a home and have decided on a U Can Do. Just don't know which one is best: the 60 or the SF?? Thanks

Since he posted this thread back on 06-21-2019, Steve must have made his decision
as to which "U Can Do" to install his DLE 20 on.

For those folks who are still thinking about mating a 20cc gas engine to a U-CAN-
DO, I can confirm from firsthand experience that the DLE-20RA is an excellent
choice for the U-CAN-DO 60. It is a perfect physical fit, balances with no lead
added and provides very good and lively flight performance with a 17x6 Xoar PJA
prop. I have enjoyed putting lots of mileage on this model since August of 2017
and it goes to the field twice a week. I just flew it yesterday, Sunday 08-04-
2019.
The pictures show my setup.

Yep, got the Ucy 60 and the DLE 20 is a great match. Thanks for posting Rocketman. I like your install.

Yep
U Can Do 60! And the DLE 20 is a great match! Only issues so far are the hinges. Iíve had to replace all the hinges at different times. Iím thinking of building a new tail section out of 3/8 balsa once I have to replace hinges again! But it is my go to plane for the first couple flights of the weekend!

I believe he's also using the Large engine mount from Great Planes.
