Default RE: Let's try again DL-50

ORIGINAL: Lou55

The wet weight of the Extra is 18 pounds. If tuned properly the DL-50 turns the Vess 23A at 7400 rpm. May be a little high so you may want to go with a 22 or 23B. Tom Fawcett has done a great job with his new SU-26. My friend at the club has the SD Models Yak which is also great. Does exactly what you want, when you want it. From the videos I've seen Tom's Sukhoi is awesome also. Either would be a great platform for this engine. Oh, and don't forget the WildHare Edge 540T V2. I have one of those with a 3MM 53cc in it and it is as stable as a rock. Whatever your final choice I'm sure you'll be glad you bought that DL. Take care and keep in touch.

Dang those are some good numbers with a 23 pitch prop! I dont think a DA can come close to that! Not with a 23 anyway. Do you know what the SD Yak weights. I'm spoiled now after flyin my Cap with the DA at only 14lbs 6 oz Thanks to bubba I want a light plane for the DL, under 18 lbs anyway.
