Hi all,

Need a little advice. I have been using a Torqmaster 180 with the Hobbico Power Core Starter Pack MkII which works fine for 30 and 50 size. But just is not sufficient power to turn over my YS91sr. I know there is a makita 18v battery setup from finer edge mfg that I could go with, or maybe I could use a 3s Lipo. What would you guys recommend going with for starting my 90?

Thanks

Makita set up with the 3.0 amp makita battery, 1.5 battery does not hold up. Looking for charger and battery and do not want to pay the $$ go to eBay or your local pawn shops for the batteries charger and got a drill too. Just bought the makita setup for the dynatron and I can not wait to start my Heli.

I purchased a Torqmaster 180 with a Finer edge, battery & charger, 3amp battery. Need to start an O.S. HZ .91. I have not tried it yet, hope it has enough power. I was wondering though, are the finer edge adapers the same for the Dynatron & the Torqmaster, or is there some difference that does not work with one another? Just in case I need to go with the Dynatron instead.

I think there is a difference between the two. I know if you order one from there site you need to specify which starter you have.

I use the TM180 with an 18V Firestorm Black n Decker pack. I installed it in such a way as to be able to use the Black n Decker charger without removing the pack from the starter. Just slide the starter/pack onto the charger and leave it.

Hey ErichF could you send me some pics of your starter. I would like to see your set up.

No Problemo:

Others that use this setup opt to put the flat side of the pack down so the starter sits level when resting on the pack. You would then charge through the lead going through the starter.

These battery packs cost $30 from Lowes or Wal-Mart.

Thanks for the pics. I assume you have no problems starting a 90 with that setup.

Not at all...in fact I'm often the "go-to" guy when others' starters start dying. It's a perfect amount of power, enough to start a cold or wet motor, but not too much to cause damage on a hydro-locked engine.
