I was wondering if the "Align super starter" will crank over the radikal? I have a Dynatron now but the size,wires, and weight of the thing is driving me crazy. There's alot of mixed reviews on the A.S.S. Im also installing a fuse on the Radikal, so the pull starter will not work.

I have one of the starters and I can tell you it's not even pleasant to use on a 50 engine. Can't imagine how it would be on a high compression gasser.

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

I drag around a dynatron hooked to two UPS batteries and my fellow flyers are always asking me why? The next question they ask is can I use your starter? My starter's battery is dead. 90 size bird? No problem. Let me switch around a couple of wires and now it's 24 volts. I know it's "old school" with all the wire and extra weight but it never fails me. Just my 2 cents.

I don't have the align starter, but my hobbico starter had a bit of trouble even with the 50 stock. I slapped a 3s lipo on there, and now it'll start a 90 without much trouble. I would think if you do the same to your ASS you'd get the Rad going too.

If it can't hover, it ain't worth flying.

Yep, A Dynatron or Hobbyco HD starter (or any similar one) with 3S lipo is definitely the way to go IMHO for any IC engine powered heli.

The pounding from the vibrations of the Align one is hard on everything.

I have an Align super starter and it will start the Radikal it will also twist out of your hand if you dont have a good grip on it. Has alot of torque.

Yea the old school just kick faster and up north you need the rpm to kick them over in the cold for some reason. They are nice as heck but they sound like they hamer on your machine and they start a little slower it seems. Also when the engine hits it seems to work that one way good. Again a nice unit just wish it was geared up not down for conrod end damaging torq

Sorry off topic.

My father and I both have the align super starter, and it will only turn the engin over 2 or 3 times before it shuts off on overload. But because the zenoha starts so easy, it starts it right up. Dont know how good it is for the starter.

Do proctologists chew there finger nails when there nervouse?

I've started a Zenoah G26PUH with a Dyantron hooked to 24V - spun it like it was an OS-32. My current setup is a Dyantron with the Makita/FinerEdge setup. Expensive but nice. I also have another Dynatron with long wires still attached so I can hook it to a big battery if needed. I much prefer the smoothness of a standard heavy old starter versus the hammering.

Cordless Drill
This may sound primative but has anyone tried something like an 18v Cordless Drill? Some have a gear reduction and I wouldn't think you need to turn a gasser over very fast to start.
