I have picked up a cheep motor(G231) and a conversion kit for a trex 600 and would like to know if this motor would fit in a trex 550 dcf. The dfc is a mash up of the 600/500.Someones going to tell me I am on the wrong page I know but the align flyers will say the same thing if I post this there. Also I would like to know what radikal model this motor would be a good fit for because I think this will be the best thing for me to do, any in put would be good because I am new to the world of gassers.thanks

Should put this thread in gasser section as u ll get more info there. I may be mistaken but isn't the zenoah 231 a plank motor ?? I thought the toxic motors were originally plank motor modified for heli's ?? But to answer ur ? I do believe the Heli bug co version will allow u to install a gas motor in the 600n I do believe the 550 if using a. 600 frame so it should work

your main blade loading will be higher on the 550. so your performace will feel sluggish... basicaly a very heavy 550. I would recommend stetching it out to 600 by sawpping out the tail boom and Torque tube.

but it will work if the frames are the same between the 550 and 600. the stock 231 PUH is fine for sport and mild 3D.

showing a preference will only get you into trouble, 90% of everything is crap...
