I have planned on fitting my SIG Spacewalker II with a DLE30 engine. It has a 84" span. It fits but is this too much?

Hey Gerald:

I'm betting that the DLE 30 will be perfect for the Space Walker. I think you will be very happy with it.

Good luck to you on the maiden!

Re: second thoughts

Hows the DLE20 compare with the zenoah G20, power and weight wise?

Here's some links for you .

DLE 20

Unless you need alot of nose weight , there really is no comparison .
The engine is the heart of an airplane , but the pilot is it's soul .
