    Ok following this thread with interest. Know nothing about this engine manufacturer but there seems to be a lot of interest for it. Nobody around me has one and I have never see one run or fly, is it in the same class as DA and 3W. As all you of know that presently building a 100/120cc size plane that needs an engine, so is this company worth taking a look at.j

    There engines are a bit more expensive than a comparable DLE. There quality is on par with DLE. There performance surpasses DLE.
    I can't believe I have never owned one yet but have flown a couple of the 123's. Felt like the DA 120 I had. Some have had negative experiences with their larger engines but nothing IMHO that could not be easily fixed by a vendor or distributor. Some say that they become hard to start after a few hours of running. I have no reason to doubt this because it came from reputable people here on GSN.
    I am definitely in on the 76. I will have one in my grubby fat fingers before the year is done. I also have had the DA 70. I have a very large video inventory I document the performance of the engines I have or had. So making a good comparison / evaluation is not that hard for me.

    That should be interesting when you get the engine and see how well it performs. So what happened to the DA 70.

    It was sold along with this airframe. The V1 and V2 Fly model Extra 330sc's I had I ended up selling. Good acro / IMAC planes but not really the best for low and slow. Both planes really dropped the left wing tip easily in hovers and landings with a neutral CG no matter how much power you had in the nose. You had to fly them really nose heavy because the main wing is located too far forward. It was a lot less noticeable with the plane and DA70 though because I actually changed the stab incidence negative 1.5 degrees. And another thing was the control surfaces were way to big for the way they flew.

    So get this. GP just posted more info, including a 3 sided drawing. It's about 5.5mm wider than the DA70 cap to cap.
