not really a fan boy. I just cant personally justify spending, in some cases, double the money for the "better than anything" engine when I have no reason to. The engines I run have never ever had a problem, therefore, spending the extra monies seems pointless and stupid for the customer service I dont need....

Id love to own a DA70 and may if I ever downsize. Right now they have the market cornered in that size. If there was a DLE70 I would certainly buy it over the DA ONLY because of the absurd pricing....whether one considers it absurd or not is opinion.

Yup....there are times when I simply don't need a "Snap-On" to get the job done.......a "Harbor/Freight" works just fine! ......YMMV

I wonder why DLE didnt make the 70 twin instead of the 60 twin. Maybe cause the DLE 35 cylinders were rear exhaust Im gonna guess.

I have both and am happy with each for different reasons but I like that the Dle' are bringing many more people into gasses than ever and that's helping the plane choices we enjoy today as well.

Sounds like someone needs to use up some sick days before it gets too cold.

I wish. I work for a biotechnology company. In the summer and winter i'm a mechanic. Come fall and spring I'm planting or running a combine among other things.

Next week will be the possible end of flying season for me, for I will most likely drop off the face of the earth for a month and a half.

Me frowning now
