DLE-85 Gasoline Engine

Single cylinder power that's silky smooth.

For giant-scale enthusiasts the DLE-85 is not only an impressive powerhouse, it's also an amazing value as well! Vibration — a real concern for a single cylinder engine this large — is kept in check by the included vibration-dampening engine mount. An extension on the exhaust lessens the chances of having to modify the cowl, and will flex or pop off during a hard landing, helping to protect the engine.

  • Included mount secures the engine while reducing vibration that could damage the airframe.
  • Included exhaust extension can be cut to fit the model and prevents residue buildup inside the cowl.
  • The ignition module will accept 4.8-8.4V power sources and the optional DLE tachometer (DLEG5525).
  • Large outlet stinger on muffler allows the engine to breathe better and produce more power.

You get all this with the DLE-85:
Ignition module, spark plug, engine standoffs, vibration-dampening engine mount and muffler with exhaust extension.
Engine Mount
The DLE-85's engine mount combats performance-robbing vibration, and unlike comparable engines, is standard equipment.
