Agreed...very interested and in the market for a 120cc engine very soon. The prop specs seem a little on the small size relative to the current crop of similar engines. Also, what ignition are they using?

Would love to see some video of them running.

Based on the photos in the 'About Us' page on their website I'm guessing these are made in China (stacks of boxes in background labelled gasoline chain saw)...however if it's a US company and they can rival the after sales service of DA they could be a winner.

Sorry, but it is hard not to be skeptical remembering back to this past announcement or this one on past DM engines.

Is this more than just another Chinese clone engine?

My .02 cents.... not a coincidence that aeroworks closed a week before this announcement. Wait and see.

Care to expound?

Also..why would a company offer a 111cc engine and a 126cc engine where both weigh the same?

What does "Reed valve designed" mean? Recommendation: Have at least have 1 native English speaker edit the "documentation".
