OS GT 33 Quality engine, and they run great, and quiet on the stock muffler
Got a few of them here in the club. Only drawback is that they start backwards some times, so just shut it off, and flip it again :-)

Best bang for the buck is the DLE 35RA.. no need for a Pitts muffler and they run solid after a long break in.. the DA 35 is a paint shaker but easily has the most power... at a price! The OS is quiet runs good but also is pricey. And yes I have owned and ran all 3 extensively just so you know.. lol

The DLE35 is a good solid performer. Hard to beat for the $$. I own two of them. Mine both ran well from the first start but they pick up considerable power when well run in. A Baal ring will shorten any break in time considerably.

Out of what you listed it would be DA all the way
I don’t have any DLE but the buddy I fly with has 2 one 20ra and a 35ra and both run good but really hard to keep the mufflers tight it’s a well known problem with the ra’s many in my club have had this same problem they use a tapered bolt and it just doesn’t work.
Now if I was looking for a good budget engine I would by an EME 35

On the 35ra, baffle the cylinder and the muffler bolts will stay tight. Its a rear exhaust problem, not a tapered bolt or DLE problem.

DLE 35RA. It works great, good power. The muffler it comes with works good as well.
Once broken in, it just runs. Simple

I have 3 DLE's, 2 DA's and 1 OS so here is my 2c:

- The DA 35 is the most powerful one but it shakes a lot - both of mine do. You do get the excellent DA service with it.

- The OS is also a powerful engine, but sometimes it starts backwards. I think it is the most quiet of the three. Price is high and parts are expensive as well. Good quality engine.

- The DLE 35 is a great all around engine that runs very well without too much vibration. It has good power and the price is reasonable, parts are easy to find and inexpensive. As for the muffler coming loose it is mostly a baffling issue.

Any of these engines will serve you well.

Both of his have been baffled since day one and had the problem until we put both mufflers on a mill and end milled the holes flat and used regular bolts and lock washers

I bought the OS, based on the quality, quiet stock pitts muffler. With that muffler, it sounds MUCH better than the "sound diverters" on the other engines. You pay a price for it, though--it's quite restrictive. I read once of a gent who put the OS muffler on a DLE30(same mounting holes), and lost significant rpm.




Stock vs stock, DA is more powerful, but the OS is no slouch--it hauled my 74" 3DHS Edge just fine

I thank you ALL very much !! I decided to OS , hope be happy with It .

Tks Llpilot is good to hear from who has tryied all .

My 2c to solve the loosen mufflers :

That crap pte 36cc vibrates as hell .

Clean very well the bolts with thinner .

Use a very thin layer of JBWeld as thread lock . LET DRY FOR 24h , and It will not be loosen again.

Use a larger layer on the bolt headrest and it will also prevents leaks there .

Don't worry , you will be able to remove the bolts if you needed easily , the thin layer of jbweld will brake when you apply force to unscrew .

I learned this trick from a renowned builder, i've used succesfully several times .

Best regards to all

Sorry my poor english.
