Default ZDZ 120, good...bad..or ugly???

I have a 36% Edge that needs an engine and I was going to put a DA 100 in it. However I seen on RCS web site that the ZDZ 120 is the same price as the DA 100. The 120 has 10.5hp and weighs 3/4lb heavier than the DA100.

Has any one run the ZDZ 120, how does it compair to the DA100?

Does the 120 really have more power than the DA 100?

How reliable is the 120 to the 100?

Thanks.

although I did not have a 120 myself I have seen them fly. They make awesome power, how they compare to a DA I cannot say

If you want to go RCS why not the 160? It weights just a bit less than the 120 and costs just a few more bucks. For me, I would go DA100 all the way. I don't believe in the HP ratings from companies, only real world thrust.

I'll be getting my tax refund next week so it's almost crunch time. Any one else have any comments about the ZDZ 120?

Thanks.
