My first gasser, What do you think?
Im looking to buy a gasser and the Predator SE seems like a good candidate,, i'll be using it for Aerial photography..

but I know the biggest challenge is getting the heli to be vibration-free. so did anyone try the "Hanson/Zenoah G-260 25.4 cc" engine? they say in their website that their "Plus" engine is modified for smootheness.

also how about the Torpedo V3 muffler, is that recommended or people using some other type?

any comments are appreciated..

Thanks !

UPDATE: I just noticed in the Century's Condor, it comes with the Zenoah G26H Modified, is that the hanson's modified engine too?

u52ah, your on the right track with getting a condor for AP work, but depending on what type of equipment you have you could possibly get away in using a regular predator gasser.

if its Vibration free you want you may have to step up to the 3D max or pro plus, the money you save on the condor can go into the purchase of the Hanson 3D max.
What ever you do, don't get the stock Zenoah 23 or 26 they vibrate.

The torpedo V3 muffler is the way to go, if u have extra funds you can get a tuned pipe from hanson as well..

I hope this helps, you can also get more feedback from the gasser section.

thanks for the reply.

on century's website, they state that the engine they'd supply with it is the hanson modified engine, so that is reassuring .

thanks again , didn't realize the gasser section on the forum,, how can I transfer my thread to there please? i don't want to repeat threads.

Send a pm to RR look up the top you should see pmRR and let him know the link that you want to relocate.

The modified engine that century supplies isn't the 3D max, i believe its the pro version of hansons engines.

now here's a question, the "Predator Gasser SE NX" webpage statges that the recommended main blade size is 700, can it take more than that? I mean in terms of boom length.

Thanks

yes i believe it can take the 720mm, i'm not sure if it can go higher than that without changing the boom.

Boom length
Yes, 720 MM mains are fine with 115 tail blades on the P-gasser.
