Engine Quality
Hi everyone

I saw the banner for the KME Diamond .60 engine a couple of days ago and 'click' checked it out like I'm sure everyone else did. Very interesting motor.

I have currently an OS50 Hyper on my Aeolus 50 and keeping my eye out on a second motor. The fact that you have the power of a 60 size in a 50 size case is one of the points that caught my eye. The other is that it is manufactured in the US.

One thing that I have seen that also caught my eye is the supposed price point. Yeah, price is definitely a factor in this hobby. Like blbills said
I think this is a case where your are paying a premium for a work of art.
Which, based on the photos thus far on the internet, I must agree. But, I do have a cautious eye on performance as well. If the performance, look, and don't forget - Customer Service, does justify what ever final price the Diamond .60 ends up being . . . it is the heli market that will dictate how long the engine lives in this hobby.

Now with all that said here in this thread . . . with all the motors coming out over the next month or two . . . looks like Christmas maybe coming sooner for a lot of us in this hobby

Im not sure if they fixed this issue or not, but last time i saw one it was spitting out fuel through the carb and causing the clutch to slip and fuel was getting into the servos causing them to glitch.

I personally think the cost is too much, using parts from OS and YS makes matching up parts seem a little sketchy.
We'll see if its worth it though, it has to be pretty powerful and reliable to match up to the new OS and YS, i'll try one out at ircha for sure!

Blade, We tryed the new Byron fuel 20% ROTOR RAGE..
It work very good just a little bit of power loss. Not like the other fuels.. I would recomend it if your not an all out 3D...

There 30% worked the best so far...
