This is also not to say that BME and 3W for example don't make a good motor, but some pilots may prefer to stick with DA because they want to and there's a market for a light 120 for sure.
Makes sense to me.

Won't know about the reliability until a bunch of flyers put it in their planes. If there are any problems, I'm sure they'll show up on FG in a jiffy!!!

Not that it matters, but I'd guess around 11.5-11.9HP

Thanks bodywerks, if you are correct it puts the 120 in the 3W-110 hp range which means it will be a very popular motor but will need a selection of 3 blade props for the IMAC scene. The 25X12 3 blade is not enough prop, you need throttle management to score 10 on sound with cans. 26X12 or 27X12 3 blades are non-existent.

Re: DA-120 ?

This is THE engine for us folks at higher elevations who require good vertical for IMAC and less wing loading for 3d for the 35% class of airplanes. We might finally be able to get the performance of you sea level folks!

Couldn't agree more! I'm at 5500 ft and have a 28lb IMAC plane just waiting for the 120.
