Big Power for Big Aircraft

At 21.5 horsepower, the DLE-222 has more than enough power to push your plane through the air. And with an all-up weight of just over twelve pounds, it has the power-to-weight balance to make the most of it. Dual carbs help you fine tune it, sealed bearings keep it running smoothly and two mufflers keep it down to a dull roar. And for all you get — including mufflers, mount, standoffs and a 6-bolt prop hub — the value-to-price ratio is impressive, too.
