DLE takes 50cc performance to a new level with the rear exhaust DLE-55RA. Everything about this engine screams performance, from the piston skirt – designed to be lightweight for quick throttle response and tons of power – to the rear exhaust that lets you easily install a tuned pipe in your aircraft. The 55RA provides 100 more rpm than the standard DLE55. It includes engines standoffs, electronic ignition, spark plug and Pitts style muffler.
With DLE, accessories are an added value instead of an extra cost.
Electronic ignition is the no-hassle answer to simpler starts, higher performance and minimal RF noise.

I have not had any issues with this engine. I have one in a Red Wing Sbach, and the other in the Peonix 95” Spitfire. I also use a DLE in my 30cc Red Wing MSX-R, and a 20cc in a profile 3d beater/practice plane. As for the exhaust coming loose, I haven’t seen it, but maybe high temp RTF?
