What's the damage with shipping (to US) for one of these?

right now I am able to sock away around $1.75 a week.. so I need to set up a time line!

Hope youll have time to keep sharing more pics with us. This plane is absolutely amazing, and Krill has done a lot of improvements inside out their planes lately. Now that your living the dream.....any thoughts of your next project?
Attach is a pic of my own "Living the dream", but was too lazy to post a built thread
Whats your impression of the DLE -170- compare to the Da-150 ?

I watched Gernot fly his this year at the Shoot out. What a great flying plane! Love the scheme also.

Snowflake - I think I'm on the same project as you at the moment, only mine's a total strip back and refinish job! Still a long way to go but I'll get there eventually.......

Anyway - enough 3W Yak's, back to Mr Drewbags' 330SC

The DLE170 certainly has more grunt than the DA150. The 150 is a sweet motor, but the 170 as expected has a lot more oomph. The 150 on RE3s is the same as the 170 on cans.

Subscribed . Finally, I found a plane for my new DA-200L and my new Futaba 18MZ
Chris, I want to see what is under the cowl. Please post a picture with the firewall mount. I'm interested to see if is possible to modify the firewall by my self.
Thanks

Is that the 3W yak that just sold on here a few weeks back?? If so that was a killer deal, wish I would of had the money to pull the trigger on it.

Yup - the same one! It was a great deal from a group of good guys. I just had to drive a fair way to get it but it worked out nicely.
I wasn't a fan of the finish and there was a fair bit of excess weight that had been added. A good strip down has cured all that and it should come back together pretty nicely. Gerhard at Aircraft International has been awesome with back up for some replacement parts
