Recomendation 20CC Gasser

Hi I am looking to put a gas engine in my Nitro Marie 65" 7.8lb P51. I am looking at a compact/cost effective ~$200-$270 range, 20CC size but not sure what brand is the best choice.

Options: Zenoah 20cc
DLE 20cc
aerovate 20cc
RCGF 20cc
Valley View 20cc
Turnigy RCG 20cc

If your going to keep the engine till you die, and then Will it to your son, Zenoah 20.

If your wanting the most bang for the buck for your 7.8lb P51, DLE-20!!

The DLE has beam mounts, cheap, reliable and runs about the same as 90% of the 26cc gas engines! Mine pulls a 17X6 @ 7600 rpm / 14lb 8oz thrust. Think about that in a 7.8lb plane.

If you do get a DLE 20, ditch the stock spark plug. They ALL fail. Sometimes in the first 2 min, or maybe after 2 months. Stock plugs are junk. If you buy one from Valley View Hobby, it will come with a NGK plug.

The DLE has a lot more power than the RCGF.

Yep! My post said that it has the same power as most 26cc engine. Guess he is looking to save a buck or two.

I say buy the RCGF.

I think your right about looking to save but maybe the $80 delta is worth it. I am sure the DLE is lighter and maybe smaller which for $80 is worth if if the DLE is also better quality and easier to operate.

How say you guys it seems you like the DLE is it a better motor with respect to quality/reliability and ease of use?

Of the ones you listed, only the Zenoah is of better quality than the DLE. The RCGF is hit or miss from what I hear. If you buy the RCGF, take it apart to check for globs of sealant and metal shavings before you fire it up for the first time. Scott

Thanks Scott for your advice on this. Always better to learn from the experience of others especially if you dont have much money

Yes I am going for the DLE I need a piece of mind or a whole new one as most of my brain cells were damages during the seventies and 80's and now old age is killing the remainder But heck at least I can still fly and ride my motorcycle.

Loud. I don't know the db, but your not going to get away with flying it near houses. If you need the meet a db limit, have them check it with a bigger prop.
