It is a beautiful sound! My favorite maneuver is to taxi back to the pits with the engine just above idle. As far as power goes, the DLE 55 is rated at 5.5 hp and the R60 is rated at 4.5 hp.

I guess you have a lot of experience running the FG60R3? Sorry you've had problems. I love mine and it is the least problematic motor I own. Runs like a Swiss watch.

Yes, the Saito will turn a two blade 22x10 at 62-6500 on the ground. A 21x10 3 blade is probably too much prop and will overheat the engine quickly.
