Has any one tried using these engines in a helicopter and what was your experience.

I had that engine in a plane. It was garbage. Didn’t run particularly well, didn’t make as much power as a glow of the same size, and needed 20:1 oil mix so the plane ended up with just as much oil covering it as with a glow powered engine. I ended up giving the plane to a guy at the field with the engine, he seized it when he didn’t listen to the manual and ran it at 50:1.

Same here, two guys had them in their planes at the local field a while back... they never could get them to run right for very long. I tried to help, but tuning was difficult and it would not stay tuned... they also ran VERY hot by what I can remember.

STAY AWAY and definitely not for helicopter use.

showing a preference will only get you into trouble, 90% of everything is crap...

Evolution engines are universally garbage even in planes... their gas and glow versions.

I never met anyone who owned one, any model, that anything positive to say.

Even if they ran like a top (which they dont), trying to make a plane engine work in a helicopter is problematic at best.
