Oh, let me see here. Joined this month of this year, 0 posts and 0 feedback rating. One per customer correct? I'll take one for me and my son will take one also. I don't suppose you would like to post a few photos of this supposed engine would you? How about a telephone number for the company Distributing them? Where do we mail the checks?

So I could easily just edit or delete my previous post. Out of respect for the o.p. of this listing, I will include the following information. In this day and age of scams in our hobby, it is often we see listings like this with little to no validity. This one however appears to be legit. I called the company after googling the company. They do in fact exist. 14075781485. I spoke with a very nice fellow by the name of Don and he gave me the complete information on these engines. Suffice it to say, I believe he is being honest. Unfortunately like DA and their venture into the fuel injected RC engines, it just isn't feasible for the RC hobby to afford such elaborate systems on our all ready dependable and reliable engines.

My apologies to the o.p. of this listing for initially doubting the authenticity.

Donwine,
Are you using the Ecotron components on a DLE engine?
Or are you using something else?
Also is your total set up lighter than 2lbs?
Thanks

We did approach Ecotron with our project and others but none could provide what we needed at a reasonable price. The one we did choose is a large supplier of EFI's and after a lot of request, they took on our development.
Our application is used in electric aviation. We thought we would offer the engines equipped with the EFI to the hobbyist. Our post is a little premature. For the next 2 weeks we would like to see what interest is out there before we start accepting orders.
Hopefully in about a week we should have the numbers, weight and video ready.
Our number to call is 407-721-5400 if there is an urgent question.

Stihl has release an 80cc 2-stroke EFI chainsaw. Yes, it's USD 1700 but as with most innovative technology the price is likely to come down a lot.

Seems to me that if there's a market in the chainsaw world there may be one in the RC world... if the price we more attractive.

Absolutely agree with you. If the price were more affordable, I would have no problem owning a EFI'd DLE 120. If the market would allow such a venture, just think of the possibilities. Heck, we'd soon see them on smaller cc sized engines. And for the big monsters, would be a no brainer.
