Problem that I see in setting a gasser in a fuse
would be how would you get access to the pull
start which on a X-cell Gas is right on the bottom
of the frame any thoughts or ideas would be nice

gasser starter
well dude, i have seen a gasser xcell in a fuse with the recoil starter removable. he just slipped it in place for starting and then removed it afterwards. not sure how the setup was mounted in the fuse but it seemed to work well. some guys have the recoil starter still mounted to the bottom while in the fuse and it looks a bit cheesy. i saw an airwolf gasser where the starting handle was cleverly hidden in the belly rockets. i disguised the muffler on my apache as one of the rocket launchers. sneaky huh. hope this gives you some ideas..........emile

I fitted my X-Cell Gasser with a Pegae top-start adapter. Needed a reasonably powerful starter to turn it over but it worked fine.

top start
thanks dude!!
i really appreciate that. cfranks has a pretty good idea as well. i have thought about a top start for gassers using a sullivan dynatron starter. this is a costly starter but it sure would eliminate the recoil sitting on the bottom with its extra weight. but at around 60 or so dollars it isnt a bad way to go.

Xcell recoil starter
I have tried the removable recoil from Xcell. It's not well designed 'cos it easily falls out while pulling, thus prone to damaging the fuselage. And after falling out, its not easily reattached since you have to realign the pins again. In short, I wouldn't recommend it. For my Scalehouse 412, I opted to simply leave the starter sticking out the bottom. You can see the result if you do a search for Bell 412 in this forum.

Vario's implementation is better since it hides up in the fuse. You'll have to build a door to access it though.
