DLE 55CC Gas Engine

Latest Version


The two things you can count on in giant scale.

The first is that you can always use a little more power. And the second is that there's a DLE engine to deliver it.
The DLE-55 generates 2.2-4.4 pounds of static thrust than the original DLE-50 and gives you a WalbroŽ pumper carb to make the most of it.
That means you'll have the throttle response you need at any time and attitude…and the power you need to nail any maneuver you want to fly.
