To that guy looking to keep RX or satellite ant straight, another and very easy method is Robart airline tubing. Cut to length slip on done and never had one come off yet.
Thanks
I don't have any cowl off photo's, but the DLE 60 twin fit is almost identical (it will require at least the left side opened for the plug) to the DA 70 photo's above.

Also, my DLE 60 is spaced out 1/2". The spinner gap, top of cowl and dead center is 3/16". I hope that helps.

Splitting that cowl would have made an interesting build thread. Looks like a real nice and clean job.

Hi Mike
Really interested in your DA70 setup. Is it possible to post pics as the engine install moves along?
Outstanding job on the cowl splitting. I tried once only to discover the technique required was way beyond my pay grade
Thanks

If anybody is interested in putting a DLE 60 twin on theirs, mu buddy is selling one for $494.20. That's shipped and its brand new, never been run. I took it out of its box for the photo's in the classifieds. It can be seen here:

Just had two and a half great flights on my the Extra , love how it hold it position no matter where you position her. It's made a huge believer in Carden design and the Extra style of planes .First flight was a flame out at 300 ft, to rich on the bottom end of the carb, and did a great dead stick landing with no damage , l love how the low speed stall characters of the plane I stretched the final approach enough to get over the wire fence and safely on the grass field i even amazed myself.
My DA 60 is finally after nineteen flight is really coming alive especial when i switch for the Falcon Beech 24x10 to the Carbon finer 24x10 . I had to adjust the low end needle in a little to get a smooth transition in the middle rpm , amazing the difference between propellers and the small engine adjustments needed .

I have enjoyed the 60cc version so much, I'm really hoping that Mike will come out with a 120cc version. Hint Hint.

Is it possible to post pic or 2 of the throttle install? Are you considering any baffling?
Thanks
