Maybe, but the sticky thing is the 37 needs a big muffler to run well. If you use a small muffler the engine is so choked down and labored it might not perform any better than a new .32. Now this may or may not be a problem, you might have enough room to put a big muffler in there, but I'd make sure. heres a link to common muffler for the 37: http://www.heli-world.com/detail.aspx?ID=2651

The os 37 will fit directly in place of an os 32 and will run very well with most pipes. I ran mine on a little hatori pipe which was only a little bigger than the standard C30 pipe. Power was good and the engine ran smoothly.

alright, thanks guys.

it just that a fellow pilot tried helicopters for a bit (venture 30) and just couldn't seem to get a handle on them, so he has given up for now. he is gonna sell his engine pretty cheap...i'll take his pipe too and see if it will fit...there is still room in the fuse for a larger pipe.

The Venture 30 is a brick, probably explains why your friend had so much trouble. Plus it's not that great a heli, I owned one for about six months before I got rid of it.

The 37 drops right into a mount for the 32. Same bolt pattern, same dimensions outside where it counts. But yes, you do need a large volume muffler or it will suck.

Don't even think about using the stock Nexus muffler, you'll regret it.

i never had a venture, but i did that the Vigor, which weighed a tone....so i believe that being made from JR, it was just like a brick...JR's logo should be something like "JR, Feel the Difference, go fly a brick". unfortunatly JR over engineers their helicopters and doesn't seem to take either parts support, cost, or weight into account...they probably havnt heard of any of those...

still not sure yet if the guy will even sell the motor yet, but if he does, i know he will go cheap, and my bell 222 needs more balls, especially in hot weather. the nexus always seemed to have a crappy cooling system.

I have built a bell w/ a nexus and it's a tight fit. I was going to go down the same route as you with the .37 but couldn't find it in stock anywhere. I used the .32 and the ONLY muffler I could fit in there was the scale muffler from century. Even with that it's a bit close to the fuselage so be sure to ventilate it and put some heat block on the inside of the fuse.

im actually using the stock nexus muffler...somehow it fits without any issues at all actually...

actually, the nexus muffler worked out great, the exaust port on the muffler pokes out the belly of the Bell a little bit.

Copter Doctor built a spectacular Airwolf using Kyosho Nexus mechanics and an O.S. 32 engine some years ago. It didn't seem underpowered at all. In fact if you have the IRCHA 2002 video you will see that the helicopter flew like a dream.
