The two things you can count on in giant scale.
The first is that you can always use a little more power. And the second is that there's a DLE engine to deliver it.
The DLE-55 generates 2.2-4.4 pounds of static thrust than the original DLE-50.
That means you'll have the throttle response you need at any time and attitude...and the power you need to nail any maneuver you want to fly.
|DLE electronic ignition
Electronic ignition is the no-hassle answer to simpler starts, higher performance and minimal RF noise.
|Loaded with "extras!"
With DLE, accessories are an added value instead of an extra cost. The DLE-55 package includes electronic ignition, a muffler, spark plug, gasket, bolts, machined aluminum standoffs, a throttle arm extension and a mounting template.
