"Top Performance - DLA Engines"

In cooperation with the manufacturer, we have gone through and edited the owner's manual for the DLA-64 so that it may be easier to read and understand. If you have any questions about the DLA-64 or the latest DLA-232 4-cylinder engine or the entire DLA Engine line, please don't hesitate to contact us!


DLA Engines offers significant improvements in the crankshaft, main bearings, connecting rod bearings, spark plug options, and carburetors. The apposed twins and 4-cylinder engines now have an added port in the cylinder head to use as an alternate location for the spark plug. This new feature increases flexibility, allowing the plug to be relocated by the modeler, to accommodate varying designs in cowling.

Current prices are shown below. Call or email for answers to questions you may have. Be sure to ask about our rebate offers.


Accessories are being added for the DLA Engine line. Be sure to check the "Accessories" page!

A note about the options of straight and slanted plugs, now offered on DLA Engiens:

Xi'an Feiao Model Co., Ltd recognized the need for slanted plugs on large scale, multi-cylinder engines (not available on in-line twins except as described below). This realization began early when the cylinders were being cast with the added material where the machining would eventually mill and tap the slanted plug "hole". The day arrived when the tooling was established and set-up for production. Each multi-cylinder is now configured with two options for the modeler. This is a big advantage over other manufacturers. Where a slanted plug is needed, the engine can be modified as easily as changing spark plugs; The plug is removed from the "slanted" position, and swapped with the threaded "plug" that was in place of the "straight" position.

The Slanted Plug option is available on special order only with in-line twins, where "headers" and canister mufflers are being installed. Stock mufflers on in-line twins will interfere with the slanted plug option, making the header configuration necessary for the slanted plug option.

With the exception of in-line twin engines, all new, multi-cylinder, engines are manufactured with two spark plug holes, one with a plug that can be removed and installed in either the slanted or straight position, resulting in a either configuration to accommodate the design needs of the cowling or other needs of the modeler.
