There is a thread on a different forum that is banned from mentioning here and someone was doing an install on the smaller cc quad DLA there. Not sure how many similarities there are to this engine but he had a host of problems with that engine. Ended up pulling the engine out.

It had the same issue as 3w and DA it was a pressed together crank and they would slip. They went to a machined 1 piece crank and problems went away... I will have one of these engines but the plane is not ready yet. I have talked a lot to Lee from golden skies RC and he is a great great guy. And a warranty that is awesome as well

The thing to remember is this is NOT the same dla from years ago... These have all machined cases and German high quality bearings... Quality wise I would say my 116 is identical to the DA120 and power output is equal as well

Dla 232

I have tested the DLA 232 in 2017 and the crankshaft twisted every twenty flights. After four times trial and Error I changed to the Dle 222 V3 and this engine runs now over 500 flights with no issue.
