Still not sure, I love my electric but as the FB chat, I really need the practice/stick time so petrol would be better.

As much as I like electrickery, I think petrol makes sense for big models too. Charging the monster packs is such a ballache when you are away from mains power...

Do you want a place an order for a custom made 23.3x8 carbon prop? Wink

That engine has to be out of the same mould as the DL

At first look its got a DLE look to it yeah,

Build will begin soon hopfully, just wondering if I need to spend yet more money on fit out or keep it real simple. i.e 7ch RX 1 rx batt or full redundency and power safe rx or gemini, or regs everywere etc etc

You have to look at how much the model is worth to you before you decide to go with minimal/no redundancy system.

Just looked at my DL50 really nothing llike the DL, the Red Lion has a distinct rounded look to the cylinder when viewed from the front, the DL is quite square.

What's the weight of the engine.
