RE: EF YAK 88 with DA-50 needs more power?

If you're into 3D and need more thrust, the Vess 23A will be the best 3D prop for your DA 50 & heaver plane. I tried it on my DLE-55, don't recall the exact RPM but I believe it was around 7300rpm on...

Nah, been having some troubles with the new 111 I bought, plus I haven't had an ounce of time to finish building her yet. I figured why rush it for a couple weekends; it'll give me something to do...

RE: DLE 111 Cylinder Bolt Torque

There a reason you're changing to a v2 crank? Why not go to v3 if you're doing all this work? April 2011, they added a rear crank bearing, new case, etc ; see below.

Hey that's my review/RPM #'s of my DLE-55 Soarrich! haha I've retested it's numbers after a few more gallons through it, and it's even better now. I got that 22x8 Xoar prop to turn 7440 at one point!...

RE: DLE 111 tuning question.

Yep, just richen the LSN a bit and you'll be golden. Still a good idea to do a once-over to make sure there's no visible air leaks or issues.

RE: DLE 111 tuning question.

Not sure what you mean by "gains rpm after flight". But what I'm guessing you're meaning is that once you've been flying around (hot engine) the engine doesn't want to come back down to a low idle...

RE: DLE-111 dies at full throttle- HELP!!

Did you make sure you properly reattached the diaphram post into the meter lever fork? It's not supposed to simply sit on top or your main jet will be metering too much fuel throughout the rpm band....

RE: DLE 111 tuning question.

If it starts becoming hard to start cold, give that LSN a 1/16th rich tweak as you're right in the sweet spot now.

RE: Best 100 - 120cc engine for 3D

IMHO I would go with something more powerful than the DA-120 if you think the DLE-111 is lacking in power. Yes the 120 has more power, but on stock pipes you'll turn a 28x12 instead of 28x10. There...
