I have my DA 50 on a Patty Wagstaff GP Extra 300 and all up weight is 15 lbs and that is with 3 batt packs. Two 2000 mah duralites and one 1500 mah NiCD for the ignition.

Vertical is unlimited!!!!!

Owners tend to get very protective about the brand of engine they own which is natural I guess.
The reality however ,IMO, is that the Wild Hare line is one of the best values available in the 80" ARF IMAC type models currently.
It is best to keep them as light as possible and a modern 50cc gas plowerplant appears to be the best comprimise between raw power and weight.
The DA certainly qualifies but so do the 3W,ZDZ,Brison and a few others no doubt.Some flyers are sponsored,some have access to price deals,some get lucky with promo pricing,some go to Toledo etd etc and these factors all play a part in the choice each buyer makes
As it happens there are five Wild Hare 80" models in our club built or being built for the IMAC wars next summer...........powered by ZDZ (2) ,DA (2),Brison (1)............should be interesting to draw comparisons next flying season.
What am I flying? Giant Planes 90" Staudacher with ZDZ 60cc.........
IMAA 27023
IMAC 3710
The Planet is doing what it has always done.......floods,volcanic eruptions storms,
earthquakes.........but today there are more people in the way.

True, funny, I remember Randy getting all excited about getting a BME for Christmas a few years back, now he's DA.
I guess it's brand loyalty, and who gives you the most free stuff!

I love my DA, but would not hesitate to use a BME, ZDZ, 3W, FPE, Brison or what have you if the situation arises. I have a Zenoah in a scale plane, perfect engine for the plane.

Brand loyalty in cars is just as silly. A lot of "american" cars are just japanese cars with american tags. My ex-boss drives a Lincoln but he calls it a Jaguar (He's British), and I think he's justified, they are exactly the same car.
Most japanese cars are built on this continent anyway. The cars that threaten our economy are not japanese, but the Taiwanese (and other) "cheapies" like Hyundai and Kia, which are fully manufactured and assembled in their home countries by workers who cannot even afford to buy their own cars on the wages they're paid. But that's another story.
