How do you like your EME 120? The funny thing is I was expecting the EME 60 to be heavier then the DA-50. I wanted a little nose wt that way I could remove my ignition battery from the motorbox and put in a tech aero ibec. I now wish I would of went with the EME 70. Then I could of made that happen. The advertized wt on all the EME components were dead on to what they advertise. Now the DA was heavier so I now know that I can trust what EME says the wt of there stuff is. If you go by what DA advertized there wt at the EME should of been 200 grams heavier. Oh well so far the motor sounds realy strong. It swings the 23X10 prop without any effort. That's what I'm using to break it in I have a 24X10 and a vess24B to try once it's ready. First flights with the EME 60 will be in about 8 hrs. I'm running my motor through the same header and canister that I had on the DA-50 it was a direct bolt up so why not. Plus I didn't have to add any mufler holes in the cowl.

Hey Greg, 8 gr = 0.282192 oz LOL, thought you would have the yak out Sunday.

Hey Ron I know 8 grams is almost nothing. But I was expecting it to be heavier. I just came back from the field I put 6 flight on it today. The plane rips with this motor. It's like a new plane. It's swinging the 23X10 prop to 7250rpm on the ground. It now has unlimited vertical climbing power. It should be real good after a few more flights when I put the 24X10 on. I just need too mix up some more gas I used all that I had with me today.
