Re: DM engines???

Actually, it how many engines are going to be based around a DA 50, which was also not all that original of a design

The answer lies in the price. If people think they will get a better price deal, with or without knowing anything about the product quality, there will be more to come.

Wait for the thread titled "Any info on DM, RL or XX engine?" Give it a couple hours but it will pop up. Likely on RCU first with the bottom feeders.

They are probably one of the older copies of a 3W 55 (Did I guess right?) .

DM come from one of the most prolific members of "the Zhejiang consortium" - SV (others include RCGF, GRPoo, HH, FTL, CRRC etc etc) - they are their final result of the many variants of the same engine. apart from very minor differences (or none at all), The same engine can be had as an RCGF "55B", a DLA 56, and a few others.

As far as performance goes, they are not too bad an engine. IF you can handle simple things like tuning, preparation, bearing replacements and crankcase sealing (the most common causes of "infant failure") they are reasonable value for money . Just don't expect any of the dealers of other brands to be excited if you have problems (even though most of the parts they have will fit them).

If you are nervous about any of those things - My suggestion is to not buy anything Chinese at all. (or if you do take that risk - make sure you buy it from a recognised dealer that is close to you).
