Love my eme 60 on a can. Only about 45-50 flights on it now seems to be fine lots of compression still.

Me too. I have worn one out. But they keep changing and messing with the good things they have going.

I don't have any personal experiences with the EME or GP but they appear to work as advertised. (You like that Dale). When I need another engine it will be a GP. I have looked at the internals and was impressed.

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

"AS Advertised"
Yes Jeff, I often use that same phrase when passing feedback here on R/C Canada. About the best you can get, just what you expected, and felt comfortable paying for.

As for Jack, he must be really getting into that beautiful Sukhoi of his.
Some how I have an image of him needing to read the instructions on his hysol. Seeing he has taken such a liking to all things R/C (computer related)


Yes Virginia, expect a reply !

Has anyone heard of the F/G Huckfest tour coming to Canada again?
I asked on the original thread (Elk Point), but no reply. At this point, I have to take that as not a yes.

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

If it wasn't for dales idea of bringing a rake to the event I wouldn't have come up with the idea to stand by matt with it of course lol. It took him a couple mins to realize I was standing there with it. He let the heli hover and looked at me and just said "REALLY!! COME ON" bahahaha

I am trying VERY hard to be able to use the GP 61 in the Voodoo build! I am only doing this because I want to go to the max prop pitch I can.

I may have to go with the DLE 55 RA. If I do I will not be disappointed. I have put well over 100 flights on my current DLE 55!! I set the needles at the beginning of the year last year after it was broken in and never touched it again. I only adjusted the needle one time this year after I installed it in the Pilot Edge and switched props. Pretty darn impressive engines for the price!

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

The biggest excitement in my near future, is a 3W 157.
Yes, I'm waiting for a little Alphatic resin to set here in the Dungeon.

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

Same with the eme once I changed from the factory exhaust to the eme can and set the needels I havnt touched them. Could go a little leaner but I don't need the extra 100-200 rpms
