EME 55cc BAD report

Initially my first test was an EME 55 that broken a crank.. Two years later. Things have changed.. EME after this event has proven to be a good and attentive company...The engines over the last two years and now are proving to be a great option..Totally redesigned and EME stuck it out and now makes an awesome product..
I have tried to put my foot in my mouth but it wont fit.. It Happens..Hype..NO ....Facts..yes

After un-bloting the prop I got to the last bolt and SNAP the crankshaft twisted off!!!!!THE CRANKSHAFT IS MADE OF A VERY POROUS METAL.Looks like these guys are just another "ALPHABET named chinese engine company selling engines with other maunfacters rejected parts..
Any of my customers know I use every item I sell and would not pawn off new junk on anyone..I do not sell anything unless I test it thouroughly. Just wanted to let you guys know as we WILL NOT be a distributer for these engines. They are available to the public if you want to order them from china but BEWARE.. And if you buy one always stand behind it while its running... Stick with DLE/DLA/SE or european and american brands.. When one of the few engine manufactur's in china gets bad cranks/or other bad parts do you really think they go into the trash can????
Will a DLE55 crank fit it?

...wanted to thank you for this post. I was considering this motor until I read this, can't say thanks enough. I don't need another 50CC motor sitting around acting as a paper-weight.

That is the only reason I have any DLE's, because Desert Aircraft does not make a 20cc or a 30cc.
