FlyingGiants Exclusive! DA Announces The 85! Video!

FlyingGiants Exclusive! DA Announces The 85! The Video!

Article written by: Maxon Duncan

Well I’ll be! Desert Aircraft has finally announced their all new DA-85cc motor! We’ve been expecting this for seemingly a lifetime, and it looks like Dave Johnson’s vision is finally becoming a reality. Preliminary specs on the ’85 indicate that she’ll swing a 27x10 Mejzlik at 6200 rpm (WOW!), with an all up weight of 4.2 pounds. Don’t be pullin’ out the cheddar yet, DA is expecting this puppy to be available in The Spring. In the interim, stay tuned right here on FlyingGiants for the latest news and information regarding this bad-ass addition to the DA line of motors. Oh yeah, we’ve got the first video on the net of Mark Leseberg wringin’ this bad boy out. Checkit! Thanks Dave & Crew!
