Well, I finally got it finished...after getting some needed nitro parts and time to put it together it is finally done.Flies great. I am a scale and sport flier and just love these HeliBug gas conversions. I got two Trex 600 HeliBug conversions in scale bodies and will be looking to put this in a scale body someday. The 700 has a big gas tank and after seven minutes of flying, I still have 3/4 of a tank left. Just love these gassers...
I also made a fan blower deflector. The Zenoah Engine RC version has a good cooling fan setup like Carey mentioned. The problem I had in this conversion was that the fan was blowing the engine heat up into the canopy. So I made a inexpensive deflector that works great.

Thanks Turbo...the muffler is a Zimmerman. It was the last one from Ron at Ron's Heli. This Heli works great for my style of flying.

Thanks Carey...you can really feel how efficient that fan is by how much air blows over that muffler.I am just glad it's not going in the
canopy!

Thanks JRAY!
I do not think that you would go wrong with any gasser...I just know that for my type of flying this conversion with easy to get parts works great for me!
