Converting airplane starter to heli
Hey guys I’ve had some difficulties starting my nitros. I got a very high rpm Milwaukee drill that does the trick but the last time I used it, it hydro locked so I ended up breaking some stuff. I can’t find any decent deals on an align super starter so I may just convert my old airplane starter to a heli starter. My question is-if I buy a heli wand shaft, how would I convert it onto my old starter! Is there a flat spot and set screw?
And let me know if anybody has an align starter at a decent price for sale.

I would skip the align and go with the Dynatron. I’ve had both and the align just couldn’t complete. If you use your old starter buy a wand that rides in the cone of your starter. The wand has a knob that fits into the rubber cone.

Using your old airplane starter is the perfect choice
If it has the metal cup already mounted that has the rubber insert that you use with the fixed wing motor's nose cone, then all you have to do is buy a 6mm extension shaft that fits into the rubber insert. It is a fairly standard size.
I use a basic starter with a 4S LiPo instead of 12v. I have 96 and 120 sizes now, but I used it for 55 and 60 when I had those.
Like this:

Basically, a $20 part instead of a $250 investment (Dynatron + Sullivan wand)

Alright thanks for the responses gentlemen. I think I will just keep my old one and buy a wand and rig up an extra Lipo to it!
