    RE: yeah, it's another what starter thread.

    nice work anyways. this is the same thing I am shooting for as well , not going
    to carry around a huge flight box anymore. I even went as far as going
    back to the hand crank on the fuel bottle seems to be working great and
    fills faster

    RE: yeah, it's another what starter thread.

    To tell the truth I use a few different kinds of fuels and end up hand cranking most of mine. I just have the one electric for the most common fuel 15 %

    RE: yeah, it's another what starter thread.

    Sometimes you can find small metal project boxes that you can modify and fit your batteries and other stuff inside. You just have to bend up a few brackets so you can screw it to the ends of your starter and then to the box. http://www.boss-enclosures.com/Enclo...cast_and_Metal

    how were the front and rear brackets made, machined ?

    I've been use the Dynatron/Makita setup for years. It works great and has been problem free. When the others are gone the Dynatron lives on!

    RE: yeah, it's another what starter thread.

    It kind of looks like Pac Aero is going out of business and just selling off stock. I have one of the 3:1 starters. It was (a little) low on power starting 30cc engines so I began using it with 22 volts. Then I tried starting a 36cc four stroke with it the other day and it wouldn't turn it over. I finally burned up the brush holder trying.... I have no false illusions about finding parts for it; ain't gonna happen. I looked high and low for the silicone inserts for it's odd size (2") cone. Finally found them at Miller Products for 33 bucks plus shipping!

    I wouldn't buy one of those again. The starter I am using right now is out of an electric scooter/motorcycle. So far I am impressed with it. I wanted to see if it would work well first and it does, so now I'm going to make a nice handle and switch assembly for it. It even has left hand threads on the shaft which helps keep the cone nut tight.

    RE: yeah, it's another what starter thread.

    So if a starters says 12 to 18 volts I take it that 19.8 volts will fry it?
    was thinking of 2 9.9 volts in series to much?

    Or just go with two 7.2 's 14.4 to be on the safe side?
    Or two 6.6 volts at 13.2 volts?
    am I looking for 2 c , 3c or what I am confused now LOL
    The "C" means how many cells correct?
    Thanks,

    Hmm... I was checking that setup out for my Dynatron. How do you charge the battery? Do you have to take everything apart?

    Jeff that should do the job fine....

    Here are a couple photos of how I attach the batteries to the starter. Each 3 cell Li-Po is set-up the same. I simply invert the Dean's plug of one battery and install a shorted Dean's male plug between both battery plugs, in essence making a 6S battery

    Thanks,
    No, a starter designed for 12 to 18 volts wouldn't be damaged by 19.8 volts. When using the higher voltage, just be careful not to run the starter for a long time without letting it cool, and if it won't turn an engine over, don't keep trying as it will then probably be damaged.
