Ordered 28% Decathlon Today - Power ?

Ordered the Pilot Decathalon, 102" WS. Power, going with DA. A DA50 was used in the mag article, did well. DA has a 35 now. Opinions appreciated, leanng toward the DA 50.
Thanks,
Vince

Valley View Twin

Hey Tailskid. Last time I looked, that 40cc twin was out of stock. Not sure of future delivery dates, I thought about it. I have the DLE 35 in my Yak 54, and the OS 33GT in the Yak 55M. I have been thinking about Desert Aircraft for some time, and now going to give it a try. On Chiefs site, at the Decathalon choice area, for the 28%, they show the DA60 on the order sheet. I think this is a little overkill, but the 60 weighs less then the 50.
I think that V V knocked it out of the park with that twin.

Desert Aircraft

Tailskid. I sent DA an e-mail for an opinion, got a fast reply, asking what type of flying I am going to be doing with the plane, to make the choice easier for me. Soon as the plane gets here, will decide after looking over the engine bay, etc.
