I own a bergen eb with a zenoah 26 hanson, and a raptor 90 with a os 91, finally I made more money with my raptor, the bergen is not as simple and reliable as the raptor, the parts count, the amount of screws and alignment to be taken into account, are less in the raptor.
The payload looks to be higher with the raptor, I usually operate at high altitude ASL, and I have to fly with lighter cameras with the Bergen or if I have to use my DSLR, the mixture have to be optimized to get the maximum power with an acceptable reliability.
Maybe is better a raptor on nitro than a bergen on gas, a raptor on gas will be a heavy ship with low payload and ultra low fuel costs.

Burnt Offering-
my country only have a few guys fly gasser, even don't have any dealer for gasser heli. So i have decided to make a modification for my raptor 90 to gasser.

aeronautica-
Like i said to Burnt, my country don't have any dealer for gasser heli.
But thanks for the suggestion too.~^

By the way, i have found some conversions kit in market, is it the **** conversion kit for raptor 90 works good enough?

If Malaysia doesn't have any dealers that sell gas helicopter then it is not any better for you to look into converting a glow fuel helicopter to gas.

When you need support the helicopter manufacturer will not help you, the conversion kit manufacturer will not help you and the engine manufacturer will not help you.

If you have no support for gas I suggest looking into buying a genuine design built gas powered helicopter and order the entire package from one vendor. That way you can get the support from one vendor instead of three vendors bouncing you around.

Gas is not quite as simple as glow fuel and electric. It takes patient to setup and learn.

Trust me, listen to the advice everyone here is giving you. Save yourself a TREMENDOUS amount of headache not to mention wasted money. Get a JR GSR 260, or go electric. End of conversation.

Over in Asia you may want to look up some Century Products. They are made in Taiwan.

Also Align is coming out with a Trex 700 gas. You may want to wait for that.

Other than that send an email to Chris at Bergen and see if he is willing to sell to Malaysia. With Bergen, once you have established a relationship with them follow up order for parts is really easy.

I have not kept up with the Predator. I always thought that Century only makes one Predator for the G260 engine. The other one is for the 20 cc engine Radikal.

You can't go wrong as long as you can get spare parts.

have a look at Realheli.com
They sell the Maxum and the MX9 gasser from the Philipines.
They are also now making high end camera mounts to suit their helis.
You can buy a stretch kit for them so you can run up to 800mm blades too.

that price MUST be a joke right? lol
If I was into AP, I would make one for WAY less than that.
I think some of these companies get a bit carried away with their pricing lol

See the Realheli mount http://www.realheli.com/article/articleview/75/1/18/

IMO looks like a finished product, not clapped together with RC car shock absorders.
Air retracts too.
Price, no idea, not my thing.
