Do gas engines require more adjustment over nitro? Are there other things to consider? (more vibration etc.) I am considering just going with a zenoah in a 700. (no 3D)

700G
If you go for the popular kit that uses the "RC" type engine with the built in fan they are reliable and makes a nice ship,a friend has one,it is stable ,smooth and requires minimal tuning if you have a sensible approach.If you know nothing of gassers,choose one of the well known gasser experts here and stick with that experts advice,such as Billme,Rbort,Chris Bergen,ect,ect,confusion of advice will get you into more trouble than you need as a novice with gassers.Good thing with the 700 is parts are cheap and readily availiable.

Gassers can give some long flight times, I have a Predator with a Zenoah 231 and this gives 45 mins per tank. Thats a lot of flying

Petrol is easier and cheaper than nitro to get, good luck. i would be interested in the 700 conversion.

Which kit is this for petrol conversion? a buddy has a 700 at work and its nitro powered...I did try to persuade him to go gasser in the first place

Quality takes........time!
