    DLE 222 on a Mini?

    Hello, this DLE 222 is a flat four, gas, 2 stroke , r/c engine that has a good reputation in the large scale R/C world. And those are hard to get...a good reputation in the r/c world.
    12 lbs !!!!!!! , 16 lbs with the prop, mufflers, carbs, ignition ! 21 HP !!!!!!
    And.... only $ 1650, new!
    This is screaming for an Ultralite Mini build..swings a 34” prop at 6500 rpms, pushing 140 lbs of thrust. That’s the same thrust as my paramotor with a 48” prop swinging 3500 rpm’s. .....and $5000 cheaper, 35 lbs lighter, smaller cage, and the nice props are only $75 !!, instead of $750.
    Any thoughts?.....

    Sounds interesting... but you need to get the revs down from 6500... Start looking for a belt drive system at 2:1 or better.

    Hi Kent, no need for gearing on this one. Direct drive with a smaller prop.
