On top of what Clive said, he was talking about the MT70 not having much durability. From what I've heard (yeah, i know, hearsay....but I will not buy one) they seriously don't last long.

I have 17hrs flying time on my 70 that equates to approx 71 litres, and guess what its still going strong. I would definitely not call this tons of running time, but strong it still is.

if you dont want to buy one then dont, buy a DA, 3W or or or...........because they never have any problems either - OH WAIT - they do
My DL50 has roughly 50hrs runtime or 21 gallons through it. Your 70 obviously sucks a lot more gas than a 50

slight miscalculation on my part - my 70 uses approx 425ml per 10min flight. so 17hrs would be only around 43 litres ( 11 gallons) so far.

anyway - back to the DLE 60 twin - shucks i would want one of those

you are quite right - im not hiding the fact.
I also sell other engines - fact is i still stand by the MT70 - I have not had any comebacks on what i have sold, but do remember this is not the states and numbers are not what you guys have. I do not deny either their has been some QC issues, but they have been effectively dealt with.

The reason i also sell other engines is CHOICE - the choice is the customers. dont like it dont buy it.

My DL-50 has three years of abuse on 3d only flights, I dont know how many gallons of fuel had drank because I never count them, but has a lot of use, never a problem, it had been installed on 4 planes, with two crashes and still running strong with lots of power, by the way tomorrow I am going to maiden a 50cc Extreme Flight Edge 540T with the DL-50 on it with an ES Composite pipe.

So, what else I can ask for $389.00 shipped to my door?

Re: DLE 60 Twin

I can't see the need for a twin this small,extra weight,may not fit in small cowls,extra expense. The only real reason I like twins is when the motors get much bigger than around 70-85cc they usually vibrate more. My DA 50 has very little vibration at any rpm.The new generation of oversized 30%ers should be fine with 50-60cc singles.IMHO.Your opinions will vary!!!

No need, but it'd be both awesome AND cute!!
Also, you can use it as a practice twin-cylinder plane before getting a 100+cc plane. It shouldn't change much, but meh.

MY DA 50 shakes the tail feathers pretty good at idle.
