DLE-40 Twin Gas Engine

DLE-30 Gasoline engine

Smooth operation — lasting value

Finding an engine with enough power for your model is easy. Finding an engine that offers you more than the DLE-40 Twin? That's next to impossible.

DLE offers the ease and efficiency of electronic ignition, the smooth operation and long life of an opposed twin and the incredible bang-for-the-buck that all DLE engines offer. Features that are extras on other engines are standard equipment on DLE engines. They run from high-dollar items such as electronic ignition and muffler(s) down to conveniences like mounts, spark plugs and connectors.

Performance, plus – that's what you can expect from all DLE Engines.


Features:
  • Light, efficient design for a high power-to-weight ratio
  • Lightweight piston for fast acceleration, excellent compression and low vibration
  • CNC-machined parts for high performance and long life
  • Sealed crankshaft bearings
  • Optimized pumper carb
  • Updated mufflers for sound reduction, excellent aeration and power
  • Phenolic insert to insulate carb from crankcase heat
  • Composite backplate mount
  • Opposing cylinders help dampen vibration that can prematurely "age" engines and airframes and reduce engine life.
