gassers
are they troublesome like most 4 strokes..... like a POS lawn mower. i kinda want one but i realy dont feel like going out on a nice relaxing day to fly and end up pulling the dam cord till it brakes and then kick the $hit out of it....... and then punting an expensive transmitter.
The only time you can have too much fuel is when your on fire

All the gas heli's I have seen are the most reliable easy operating heli's on the strip.

Their style of flying at the moment, is more around circuits with a small amount of aerobatics thrown in for good measure as they tend to be a bit heavier than their glow counterparts. I like them they seem to be a relaxing flight.

there 2 cycle motors / 2 stroke's
if you know someone who can show / help you to tune a 'gasser' and set the throttle curve , then you'll only have to pull the starter recoil cord a couple of times to start her up and that will give you plenty of time to wonder why you used to lug that electric starter and all the other crap just to go have a fly.

well if you enjoy having to lug a hand starter and battery and glo igniter and all the other accessories just to start your nitro bird then a gasser would be way to easy for you, all i carry to the field, one fully fueled heli and radio, how hard is that?Smile! people will wonder what you're up to!!

Once a gas engine gets some run time on it, you pretty much do not need to mess with the needles unlike glow engines. Although I have no experience with gas helis, I have flown many gas planes. Each gas engine has been much easier to work with due to that fact.---------
