WHO IS BETTER? HELIBUG OR HWC CENTURY ?
Hi guy's, I've been looking at a gas conversion for a 600 and want to know what kit is the better one, Helibug is $440 with all the parts and HWC Century conversion is $375 with all the parts. There is a $65 difference between the two and a $65 savings can buy something else for heli. The other question is I have a brand new Chaos 600 (t-rex 600 ESP clone), Can I use it for the conversion? Will the tail and main shaft work? One more thing, can I use the stock 600m blades for my ESP? And what's a cheap motor that works. Sorry for all the questions but I like to know what I’m doing before hitting the BUY IT NOW BUTTON, LOL.
Thanks, Loren

Your question is going to come down to what engine format you would like to use...
Helibug use the RC format...
HWC use the PUH format...

The Pros and Cons would fall more in the lines of;
what Oil to use...
Then decide if you want to Generate or Not to Generate..
To Pull Start or Top Start...
If you do Pull Start.... Then, to be Removable or Permanent...

and the list goes on...

you can't go wrong with either of the two Conversions both are well engineered machines
YES... YoU puLL stART ! ~~~~ NO... it's NoT a FREAKN' Nitro !

The HB is better for me since I prefer the RC engine. I've also had bad luck with Century products in the past and most likely won't go back to them.fly til its dry

HWC is a great conversion but uses all parts from Century. You will not be able to use those parts from Align. Also AFAIK only Century pipes can be used on HWC. But HWC clutch is better than stock Align clutch.

HB allows you to use almost all parts from Align. Big 700 fuel tank. RC format engine which has a nice built in cooling fan. Very precise frame cuttings. You can use all pipes on this conversion. And LYNX released a gasser clutch for HB conversions. Can be used in both 600 and 700 HB conversions.

I think they are basically same. PUH is made for helicopters. Has no built in cooling fan. RC stands for Race Car but they are very popular in helicopters as well. Has a built in cooling fan.

The good thing about the RC engine format is the cooling fan and shroud are purpose made for the engine.Not knocking the century set up as i know nothing about it.

PUH left/RC right

I get my engines from DDM. I've never had any issues with the RC format, I've got 4 of them. I had one PUH for my ex Spectra and I did not have any luck with it. There are a lot of PUH owners that are tickled pink with theirs. I'm just more satisfied with the smoother RC format.fly til its dry

I have a Helibug Raptor 90 with an RC 270 motor. I have yet to regret my decision. It really is awesome. I don't understand why there aren't a whole lot more gassers.
I agree go with a 700 size. That is one of the advantages to flying gas. Fueling up a 700 with glow fuel is getting painful. Fueling up one with gas doesn't hurt at all And when it's in the air,it's an experience that makes you grin from ear to ear.

I've got a Helibug 700 with an RC290 and really enjoy flying it. It's less hassle than an electric, has lots of power (I don't do tic docs with it), and I love the long flying time and cheap fuel. If you use Coleman fuel you can store it in your house with no gasoline stink.
