Starter....

Yes, there is a very nice starter made by the same people that make the heli and it works GREAT... when you contact Ron ask him about it and I am sure that he will tell you all about it...
http://www.pegasushelisusa.com/
I did get to read the review, and felt that they were a bit light on the "grades" given to the heli.... the way I read it, the grading was because maybe different blades would make it fly differently, or the 10 and 10 didn't work so it was put back to the factory settings and it worked fine.... to me this should have been in the 4's or better because it fully does what it is intended to do out of the box!!! And as a first i/c or a play machine is what it is intended to be, as per the box and instructions....will a different set of symmetrical blades help it.... HELL YES, but don't let it loose points for not having them.... and the pitch settings... well 10 & 10 doesn't work well because you are working with a smaller engine that everyone is not used to.... but mine is 12 and - 8 and climbs out inverted just fine (using the stock linkage and a smooth throttle curve)
I was glad to see the coverage the mag gave it, and you will be QUITE pleased with the heli if you want a fun heli that flies GREAT out of the box, and has room for more as you learn to use it.... guess they can't please everyone all of the time.... Stan

Thanks doorman,
I will check into the starter. As for the review, I agree with you, if the heli is setup as a sport flyer out of the box, I don't know why it should be judged as a possible 3D machine. Yes, there are people moding it, and doing more extreme aerobatics, but you shouldn't expect that performance with the stock heli.

Hey Marks if you check the PegasusUSA website, I believe you will find there is a LHS in FL carrying the Pegasus. Try them.

I'll admit I'm not a great pilot, but I can hover with the best of them.

The add says it has an 18 Nitro engine but no mention of the make.
Who makes the engine used in this Heli, do you have a choice.

I have two IC T-Rex helis with the Leo 15 engine but no mater how I adjust the needles they run hot and overheat.

What does anyone think to throwing a 21 car engine in there?
I have access to one and have heard they have higher rpm powerbands?
But i suspect cooling might be an issue...

Any thoughts would be appreciated

Engine...

The engine that comes with the Pegasus has SMT stamped on the side of it, and I would imagine that it would stand for SmartTech which manufactures the heli....and at this time there are no other options available, but that is not to say that there will not be later...
As far as the car engine goes, yes I am sure that you would get more RPM,and we have a friend that is trying that mode, but he has to re-tap for the needle valve on the carb so it will fit and work in the heli...
I am flying mine with a 2100+ head speed and it does rather well with this setting and 420mm glass blades....
Hope this helps you out....
Not a "total" power house, but once you get the timing down, it loops and rolls without any problem, inverted climb outs no problem, and backwards flight.... even a tic or two!!!!
This is one fun little heli.... and I know I keep saying that, but it really is.....

Thanks for the info, I was however more concerned about the heat generated by this engine than the power produced.

Parts it comes with

It's all built, no servos, gyro, battery, switch that's it. It goes together in less than 2 1/2 hrs.
It works great and is lots of fun flying. Windy or not.

Buying a pegasus

hi guys,
Why not buy a pegasus from the uk authorised distributer if you are in the uk, that way you will get full sales and spares support. LHC is open from 10-5 pm Mon-Sat tel 01926642848. They are in the midlands and you are welcome to try before you buy.
The web site is lhc-rc.com and you will find excellent prices and a full spares listing so you can get all your pegasus spares online.
cheers and a merry xmas

Compatible Head Parts

Hi All,

I just got this wonderful Heli, had a ball flying it last weekend, but unfortunately crashed it. Actually the damage isnt that bad, the engine overheated, Its prolly running lean. Well in summary, it dropped like a stone about 2 meters. Amazingly, the only damage was one of the mixing arm broke off and took the linkage with it. Now I just found out that its hard to find spares in my neck of the woods, so does anyone know if there are compatible HEAD with this, like a Raptor 30 or will Trex 500 or 600 fit?. Thanks

Over heating, the engine needs at least 5 tks of fuel using 30 % nitro. It's a high RPM engine and needs to be broken in. The correct needle seeting is between 1 1/2 and 2 turns from the closed position.
Parts are no problem as pegasushelisusa.com has all the parts as well LHC in England. If you contact Sean in England he will be glad to help you or in the USA contact Ron or Stan and you will get good advice.
If set up correct that little heli will do lots of untuned hours of flying.
Cheers, Shooter
