Re: Southeast RC Engines DLE-30

YOu mention a break in period, but you didn't go into ANY detail about the engine...

Are you sure this was a review?

Re: Southeast RC Engines DLE-30

Every gas motor you get will need to have tuning done to it. Simply because of different elevations affecting the carb settings. But I have found on my DLE-30 that I start off with the lowend needle at one turn out, the highend needle at 2 out. Now I use synthetic from the start at 50:1. It may take a little longer for it to break-in. But I run a tank on the ground and get the needles set for a good transition and reliable idle. I then fly the thing! No need to run any gas motor excesively on the ground. Get the needles set and go!

Re: Southeast RC Engines DLE-30

I put one on a 68'' VElox from 3DHS and started with a 19x8. This thing IS STRONG!!!

19.4lb of Static thrust on the ground.. BAD thing.. It's WAYY too much for the Velox.. LOL.. Wayy to fast.. Hover just a touch over idle!! punch out is CRAzy..

Great little motor..

wow...
using stock muffler?
perhaps you could use a 3-blade then and quiet things up!...
I may have to use this engine in my GP p-6e Hawk instead of a zdz40 and place a 3-blade
iff it can swing it...??
let me know...

What brand oil are you using for break-in?

Re: Southeast RC Engines DLE-30

Hi,
Just fitted a DLE 30 to the new Hangar 9 Fantana 125. Awesome power, Using 18X8 just to keep speed down a bit. Prop hangs at about one 25% throttle, vertical pullout mind blowing.

Amen to that, running cheap oil thru a new motor seems like a complete waste of time to me synthetics have been around for so long now I can't believe the old wise tail is still around. My banshee is on it's 5th hard season of duneing and it still rips Amsoil dominator from assembly is the way i roll.
