Some people with twin envy are willing to spend the same $ on a baby twin instead of just getting a decent 100cc.

The twins have better low and mid range throttle response and run smooth. The DA-70 is 7 ounces more than the 60 and performs very close to the DA-60/RE2 which is actually heavier than the 70 with jtecs. Those EME-70 numbers seem close to what I was getting on the 25x8W before adding pipes.

There is an EME vid also showing tach numbers on std exhaust but it does not show prop size.
25x8w @6800 on a new engine is very good. It is the electric start feature that I really like. Wanting to do a decathlon or christen eagle for some scale aerobatics and then just hang it on the prop for fun. I think this engine will do nicely.

there has always been a need of a good 60-70 twin for the 30% planes.
myself I like the way a 30% plane responds,verses a 35%.
I just don't see a advantage, or have a need to go to a 35%
so with all of the new twins out it is just that much better.


nice to see some reports on the EME70 now.

35% are bus like and slow to respond compared to a 30% or even a 25%. I prefer the 25% and 30% sizes. They're cost effective and a lot of fun. Bigger is just a plain to store, transport and maintain for a lot higher outlay and they're a lot less fun. Hence a good 40cctwin for 25% ers and 60-70cc twins for 30% is a really nice option. Weight of the twins doesn't bother me since I love MVVS engines and they're pretty weighty

We have flown a eme70 about 14 times now on a 3dhs yak. The power is good, tachs out very good. It does not have the same quick spool up of the gp 61 on bender pipes on that same prop so the pull out of hover is a little slower. I think that motor will be crazy on properly sized pipe but then we add more weight

EME produced some cranks with IKO bearings for the EME 60,s that where special order and the 70cc is sold with IKO rod bearings but im not convinced EME fits IKO as standard to all their engine range as nowhere do they state this is the case.

Can EME confirm what model engines come now from factory with IKO rod bearings.

I bought one of the early 60's from MileHigh and it still has the factory original crank in it,after many gals. of fuel.
It's been a good dependable engine.

Yea my first one that has done two seasons still has the original crank, its been a great engine. Still would like to know what EME engines come with IKO bearings on the rods now though, is it just the 70cc or do they all?.

The newer 50cc class planes are much lighter then they used to be. I will admit, modern 50's and 60's fly more like older 100cc class airplanes. To each his own. 100cc+ for me.

My EME-120 is running strong. And its 8oz lighter then my old DA-100, and JC-120 (shelled after 50 gallons and was denied warranty support.

I believe the new EME 60 has the IKO bearings

E-mail Mike at Mile High. The 35,60,70 and 120 and 120 TS should all have The IKO's. A lot of old stock will still come from SDS and continue to be sold/distributed until it is gone.
