At Joe Nall, DA told me September. So, it should be soon.

I'm interested to see comments once it is being flown in numbers. I'd think it would be a shaker, but DA says its not. I'm sure they wouldn't release it if it vibrated too bad. I believe this engine is used in military applications, but has been adapted to rc by plugging the spark plug hole in the top of the cylinder head and adding an angled plug so it fits most 40% cowls.

Supposedly be $2,499 and don't know if will be post on website but seem like for special order which customer have to call the DA say "Hey I want the DA215" and which will they can do from here to there. That's far I know but I might be wrong but it what I remembered from DA vendor at Joe Nall 2019.

Did Gernot have any comments as to how the 215 performed? Did anyone else have any comments as to how well the 215 performed?

The 215 looked good and sounded good w/o being overly fast or loud. It was using a 2 blade
and a bit larger cans...( DA for details). I would like to see a CF 3-blade personally. For only having
2 weeks to prepare, Gernot did a great job at the Shoot Out.
DA backing, beautiful workmanship and performance.....I'm looking for an aircraft to put one in.
I heard DA has a limited number of them ready for sale.
