None of us around here own one. All the engines and pipes we are testing, we bought them and have planes planned for them.

Do you have a zdz60 ?

Send it down to us asap with a header. we can test it with these pipes before they get installed in planes

Does the EME use an rcexel or similar ignition?

If so, im sure it would work just fine.
I flew my 60 with an rcexel all summer.

The EME uses the same header as the dle55 or Da50. Not the same as the da60 unfortunately

Re: DA-60 Testing ( Taming the Monster )

They just need to fix the 120 prop hub so that it doesn't have a 150 bolt spacing

Re: DA-60 Testing ( Taming the Monster )

sorry just got back from Brian's house picking up some covering . EME uses rcexcell but from what I understand they have been set up with there own timing curve to optimize the performance of the EME . with DA being a knock off of the eme.LOL it may be better suited to use the EME ignitions . just Kidding. .

I think EME already have the prop hub change in the works .pretty good for a new company responding to the end users that quickly . after all it's something that would not even hurt the performance ,it was just a request by some end users .(some lesser companies would have you just live with the problems or have you fix them your self) Roger
