EME60 or DLE55

Hey guys I've been out if the loop for a while but I'm back now.

Im assembling a 30% plane and i need some advice on witch engine to go with?

I'm only looking to spend around $350 so these seem to be my only choices. Witch of the two do you like and why?

Im not looking at the dle55ra because of the exhaust coming lose and I don't have time for maintenance like that.

Thanks

Go with the EME60,I only say this because of the power increase and trouble free, over the 55.I have two of each one of these engines and the EME has giving me far less trouble than the 55's.I haven't had the need or reason to even take the EME apart.can't say that for the 55's.
Now if you want even more power for the same money and just as reliable as the EME.Look at the RCGF60 single side exhaust,I have two of these also and just as trouble free as the EME but with a added 300+ rpm increase.

I had an EME 60 it was a great engine I am now only flying 120cc and larger planes I sold the 60 to a friend he now has two. I am watching my old 60 fly in a PAU Edge 540 and as always running perfect. EME 60 great engine. You will be happy with it.

The RA motors are a easy fix with the exhaust coming loose. Remove the exhaust port gasket and dispose of and apply Permatex RED to the exhaust port AND the threads of the exhaust bolts. Assemble FINGER tight until you see the excess squeeze out and let it sit for one hour. Come back and tighten to spec. Problem solved!

I use to fight loose muffler bolts too.If you truly want to put a end to loose bolts use Nord Lock washers.I just started to use these pricey little things, but they work great. Haven't had a loose bolt sense I started to use them.

👍 and you have to modify the mufflers on the DLE RAís to use them
