The starter I have can barely turn the motor over on a TP proloite 4s 8000mah lipo. Im using the sullivan 12v 80 amp starter. What do you guys use and what battery is recommended? The starter I currently use is for my Stratus and it works well for that, but for the bergen its a different story. Any input would be greatly appreciated.

I started a G26PUH with a Sullivan Dynatron hooked up two to 10A 12V gel cell's for 24V. Turned it over like it was an OS-32. It wouldn't even budge with 12V from my Tundra's battery.

I have not experienced it but some say be careful with high voltage on the Dynatron as the contacts can weld shut then you have a real handful with a spinning starter wand and probably a pissed off heli

So if you have it, try the 5S or maybe 6S pack.

On the G26, I like a rope!

The government cannot give you anything without first taking it from someone else.

For G26, you need at least 5S pack and maybe 6S. I have G231 engine and 4S turns it over with no problem but if I were to do it again, I would definitley use 5S pack. And yours is G26 so use 5S it will make tons of difference. I wouldn't use 6S pack if it was me. I read here somewhere that some people burned that starter at/over 24 volts.

The century minimax starter works very well on 2 8s 1900 mah. Nicads wired in series.

Dx7 With Ion Power Supply. Why use anything else.

I normally use the pull-start but I have used my mini-max on a 12V gel pack as well in order to start my g260.

Watch out for the modifications needed on the mini-max to prevent it from falling apart after a few starts...

It's easy to find an excuse to do wrong. Hard is not to find an excuse to do right.

I use an 18v Lithium Makita pack on a Finer edge adapter, and a sullivan dynatron. It turns over my G-23 plane motors easily.


I may not be able to turn a kit into a plane, but I can turn a plane into a kit...
