Default My Dream Gas Motor, A Twin DLE 40cc

Ok, I just have to ask,

DO you ever think we will see a twin DLE 40 down the road?

I love my DLE 20, 30 and 55.

But I would love a small DLE 40 twin. As all the other Twins are way to big and strong for the lower end war birds and scale cubs.

Most of my boys agree a DLE 40 would be a ticked for most war birds, but if it was a twin it would sell like little hot cakes.

Is there a way to make 2 DLE 20's into a twin?

What you guys think?

All it takes is money, how much would you pay ??
2 DLE cranks to make into 1, 2 pistons, cylinders, 1CNC crankcase, a larger reed than a 20 uses, Walbro WT76 carb, RC EXL twin ignition...
Bergen helicopters use an opposed 8 hp 52cc twin made from 2 G26s....Don't know if they sell the engine separately....

Maybe not from DLE, but with parts from DLE at the right price, who knows...We ASSume Chinese parts are not all that pricey

Find a NIB Tartan and add an ignition.

I doubt they will ever make a 40cc twin but the logical thing to do is for them to make a 40cc single then naturally an 80cc twin could follow.
I have a couple of planes that the 30cc is too small and the 55cc is too big and a 40cc would fit the bill. An 80cc twin would fit quite nicely between the 55cc and the 111cc.

Found this. I guess the engine can be bought separately.

Thanks guys I know it was just a dream, i know twins have there down sides, More weight, takes more ducting to keep cool, etc.. But they just look cool

I would have not give this motor a second thought but its just to wide. I wanted this for a ESM Corsair, or even my 30cc GeeBee R3 but Im limmited to 9in max in with and this baby comes in at 9 1/2 with the plugs.

why not run smaller plugs like the ones for Saitos and put the smaller plug wires on?

mikes68charger's dream is a 'DLE 40 Twin' , and the link posted before does not show a DLE engine.

Yes, but is an alternative. I have and love DLE engines and also own the VVRC twin. It is sweet!

Just trying to help out a fellow modeler. Peace.

I have owned an RCS44B2 for about 10 years. I got it at a reduced price because RCS couldn't sell them

Only problem with the VV engine is even with the smaller plugs, which can have other issues, they are 7 7/8" that is offset from the center on the engine. I was really thinking of pulling the trigger on this one for my ESM 74" Corsair. I have a G-38 in it right now and while it is ok in power I know a good 40 twin would put that plane over the top. But with the 7 7/8" width below the center it will stick out on both sides.

Hi Guys

I just purchased my first gasoline powered engine. Its the DLE 40 CC twin cylinder. Mounted it onto a test bench and it is running very well. Now I need to build a model for it.

Regards
Craig

I bet it clears away the sawdust from that jigsaw.
What size prop are you running?
I have one on a sig rascal. Running a 20x6, need 20x8. It will torque roll the rascal, awesome sight.

Hi slowpoke

If I started it in that position,it would clear the sawdust around the jigsaw for sure. I am running the Master Airscrew wood series 20" X 8" prop and ran it up to 6000 Rpm,with more to go,but the engine has less than 15 minutes running time on it. So I am very careful at this stage.

Regards
Craig
