Seems to be a few that have had some recent issues for sure. Just tough to strain out the truth on the internet!! I wonder how many have been duds and what the ratio is vs units sold. I had a bad RCexLpick-up sensor once but was replaced. But also had a bad DA sensor and they're supposed to be better. And supposedly shiney (red in the case of the sensor) always wins, LOL.

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

One of my friends up here bought a DLE170, both the ignition and the sensor were bad. That was a fun one to find with two things wrong on a new engine at the same time. Luckily I had spares of both on hand and got him going.

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

Nice!!! Always good to have spares!! I have spare 3W, DA, ZDZ and RCexL goodies just in case, LOL. The RCexL is easy to get quick, but sourcing any of the others can mean no flying for a week due to shipping wait times.

Edit: I think Jeff now carries DA ignitions!! A huge help for us!!

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

Wow... What a typo above!! I called us the E.C. Got E.M. And W.C. Mixed up there!

Hopefully I'm not booted out of the E.M. Membership because of that!!

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

Hey Brent!!... Unfortunate that you have to send that DA back. Please keep track for us how long you are out a motor. I'm guess 3-4 weeks but we'll see. 1 week down there, 1 week in cue, 1 week back.

Can they not just send you the parts for the upgrades? That'd be exceptional service if they could!!.. You'd be back in the air in a week.

Come Trevor, that's part of what makes owning a DA special. Like every DA owner seems to know, their service is great and often free! It just take 3-4 weeks and the cost of shipping! I guess we're just crazy flying those other engines that we often get the parts for free and almost always for less then the shipping cost, and in 2days were flying! I agree we are nuts!

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

Oh please. How many other engine manufactures provide this kind of service. Most CHINT engine companies will close shop in 2-5yrs and some give parts away like candy for the first few versions. The other big engine names are on the otherside of the pond and you get service when they want to provide it. DA is smart in their service. They make sure the repairs are done to their specs. This prevents the jackasses of the world from going on forums complaining about a crappy engine when they TRY and do the work themselves. Pretty simple to me. If you don't agree with this go over to the FG GP threads and read that crap. Most of these people are the issues with the engines. It funny as he'll to watch.

Yup I bit the bait.

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

Will do Trevor. Glad it wasn't a large engine, the Post office Lady relieved me of just over $30.00. I had another shipping option, my sister and brother-in-law arrived from down there today, could have sent it back with them Monday..... would have but my family seems to have communication issues!

I over packed it and insured it. After my wife called (she was the one who took it to the PO) to ask what it was worth (hmmm worth and cost to a woman is a hot subject) I blurted out 500 bucks. When I checked the closest place to where I could buy a replacement I discovered I was a hundred short! Hope they send me back more than just the carb, you know how many bottles I'd have to pick out of the ditch to buy a new one?

I figured you would have a faux pas with the EM/WC one day. In your line of work its understandable! Your in a league of your own with the EC!!!!
