A local flier waits to convert his Robbe Futura to gas. Anyone know where he can find a conversion or a gasser, if they exist?

Thanks,

Ken

October 16th:

Thanks for the two responses. I'll inform the flier of his options. It appears that all's quiet on the Robbe scene. I've looked at a few European eBay sites. There was only one gasser for sale in Germany. Some dealer out there has to have one. It'll be a matter of looking.

I have a Futura SE converted to a gasser with a Zenoah G23
engine. I would consider selling it as I just have too many
helis. The easiest thing would be to sell just the drivetrain
with engine as it would be so much easier to ship.

There is a guy in Germany where you can get a gas conversion. I bought one from him for my Futura mechanics MD500E. Also, he sells some upgrade parts for your Futura SEs as well. His global ebay user name is moskitohubi, shipping is fast.

Or get with Trillian to discuss his helicopter to make it happen..either way, it seems you have options.

"How high do they go? Are those things hard too fly? How much do they cost?

Here's mine
I took some more pics of my Futura gasser.

I bought this heli complete and it was already converted
so I don't know the details of the kit used but I think
one of the shops over here used to sell a conversion kit.

The drivetrain is Futura SE. If I were to sell it, the best
scenario would be if someone wanted to use it in a scale
project and wants just the drivetrain with engine as this
would be practical to ship as opposed to a complete heli.
