Product Description


Smooth operation - lasting value

Finding an engine with enough power for your model is easy. Finding an engine that offers you more than the DLE-40 Twin? That's next to impossible.

DLE offers the ease and efficiency of electronic ignition, the smooth operation and long life of an opposed twin and the incredible bang-for-the-buck that all DLE engines offer. Features that are extras on other engines are standard equipment on DLE engines. They run from high-dollar items such as electronic ignition and muffler(s) down to conveniences like mounts, spark plugs and connectors.

Performance, plus - that's what you can expect from all DLE Engines.

  1. Light, efficient design for a high power-to-weight ratio
  2. Lightweight piston for fast acceleration, excellent compression and low vibration
  3. CNC-machined parts for high performance and long life
  4. Sealed crankshaft bearings
  5. Optimised pumper carb
  6. Updated mufflers for sound reduction, excellent aeration and power
  7. Phenolic insert to insulate carb from crankcase heat
  8. Composite backplate mount
  9. Opposing cylinders help dampen vibration that can prematurely "age" engines and airframes and reduce engine life.

DLE electronic ignition means faster first-time starts, smooth idling and superb throttle transition.

No-compromise carbs. Each DLE carb is designed and matched to a specific engine for "no-compromise" performance.

Standoffs and a composite backplate mount provide solid support with a minimum of weight.

Loaded with performance and value. DLE Engines offer more for the money, with standard features that include electronic ignition, muffler(s), spark plugs and more.

Spiral wrap and connector guards prevent abrasion and loose connections.
