Probably the Zenoah G20...

It looks similar to the Zenoah G20 but I don’t think it is

It's probably a DLE 30.

You know for a second I thought you were onto something. However I compared the DLE30 to these pics and they don't look anything alike...

No Zenoah
And I got a NIB 231 on the shelf waiting for just this heli

Any one know what size that engine is or would it just be speculation at this time?

Top part of the case looks similar

I would guess the motor would be a 20 or 23 tops.The lower case looks different but it could be made for this application.Im sure we will find out sooner(hopefully) or later.

I can't beleive that after following Fixit's "Align gas conversion thread" and seeing all the R & D he has done for Align they have ignored his findings and gone with a completely different set up & engine.

I think this helicopter will have a lot of birthing pains with the increased stress of the heavier motor and vibrations, and everyone knows that Align releases a model after it has been tested by 2 or 3 people max only to offer up a V2 model 6 months later to correct any design shortfalls, but I am so happy to see Align trying to market a cheap gasser.

I was looking forward to the Align Gasser coming out but I thought they might incorporate some new design in the gear and cooling area, the choice of engine might also be too small for the 700 so I’m tipping the Century 50 will be the way forward even though it will probably be more expensive

Hey Fixit, do you know the size of engine? I thought we were all just guessing at the moment

Hi Duke

I'm guessing just like you that’s why I said Might be to small but it looks more like the 20cc range and allot of these smaller engines boast power ratings they just don’t have but time will tell and that could just be a prototype.

I would still like to try the Align gasser and if it didn’t work out then I would have a load of 700 spares

Maybe new engine =new power

Maybe this"new" engine might have more punch and less weight,might even be a screamer closer to a nitro,we can dream

I was expecting at least a 23cc but capable of 26cc or so with a simple pinion change. Now the pics are out info from Align the heli won't be far behind, I'm sure they are keen to get it on the shelves and exercise my plastic for me

If Align get it right

They will probably clean up the gasser market in these hard economic times
