Lighter one is the 120. Heavier one is the 111.

I like the way they have changed the stagger on the cylinders. Keeps the muffler away from the firewall.

Not to be argumentative or a DA fanboy, but I don't understand that. My 2 year old DA 120 is very smooth, and always has been. We have a few others around here and they all run very smooth. Maybe it is the Vess balance ring?

People that like da's, like da's. people that want to criticize, will do that. My 120 is smoooof. Lots of good engines out there, I think?

I have to say that the DLE engines are the only engine worth looking at other than DA. I have had nothing but a great experience from DLE and so have the other guys I fly with. The next best thing to Deserty Aircraft service is Valley View. Its nice knowing you can send in an engine in the states to a dealer that has a lot of experience with the products they sell.

+1 Valley View is the only place to buy a DLE. Good people.

I just had to make a comment. Seems like some DA fans feel the need to inject something DA into every DLE or "not DA" engine thread. Kinda funny that when you fire back they get all pissy. Its all good. I love my DA and have had great luck with DLE engines also. Buy what you want and have fun.

I've had great luck with both but at half the price a DLE is an easier pill to swallow, especially when I've got a wife and 3 kids that come before my hobby! I just preordered mine at Valley View and can't wait to bolt it onto my new 104 AJ Slick!!!
