DLA-122 any thoughts?

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
Has anybody tried this engine? From what I understand it is basically a DLE-112 clone with a polished muffler, but does it really perform as well as the DLE?

They are selling for $450 USD at hobby king right now so I am seriously considering it. Any Thoughts?

Re: DLA-122 any thoughts?

I don't know if I'd risk trying a clone of a clone, lol. The DLE is a clone of the DA. I saw this new DLA company pop up last year but I have heard absolutely nothing about them. However, I don't know if I'd trust a company that's copying a copy.

Re: DLA-122 any thoughts?

The fact that they are a clone of a clone is not necessarily a bad thing, especially when you consider how much less they cost than DA's and DL's.

There is a thread on RCU but it seems like mostly opinion and hearsay from people who don't own one and haven't tried them.

There are positive reviews on the hobby king website, but I generally do not trust reviews posted by the seller.

It would be great to hear from someone who actually has one of these engines and has used it for a while.
