Customer Reviews

Average Rating: 5


I have had a DLE 55 for around 3 years now. After firing it up, I did a small tune. After running in, I tweaked it again (didn't really need it) and since then have not touched it. Every so often I remove the cowl and give the engine a clean and lubricate choke & throttle arms. I have flown this engine at sea level as well as places such as Orange NSW and there is no change in performance. I have three DLE engines and I love the way they give me no grief at all!
