Thinking a DLE-61. Would love a Saito but I have 9 other models to feed and keep running. Just finished a TF P-40 and mounted a DLE-61 with J-tech muffler so thinking about the same.

I think you will b happy with that combo... probably gonna need some nose weight.. I have seen them fly with a 55RA and have plenty of power! Good luck with everything.

I have a DA 60 in mine and I am using a 3 bladed prop and I have
enough power... plus I did Not use any added weight for balance.
strategically placed the batteries and radio equipment.

Not much life left in this thread, but nearly completed my Zeke. DLE-55 RA, Biela 21X10 prop. Comes in at 27.25 lbs. Xicoy CG measures the CG almost spot on, but using two Spektrum 3000 mah Life's for the Power-Safe receiver, a 2,200 on the ignition and a 4,000 Life on the gear. All batteries up around the fuel tank with one under the bonnet. All rates set per instructions, with plenty of expo. Robart Electrics all around with scale main wheels/tires as well as electric tail-wheel. Will probably make first flight on a Xoar 22X8 two-blade propeller...much less than losing a $100 Biela CF three-blade prop. Going to get some engine run time before first flight, which will hopefully be around Labor-Day weekend.
