OS 61SFH carb
Hi Folks,
I'm new to this forum and have a problem with my OS61sf which came installed in a PHI Tornado 2 heli I purchased used. I was having problems adjusting the carb settings. I emailed OS and I could tell from their instructions that I was looking at a non- OS carb. A friend quickly picked up on the fact that the carb was really from a Supertiger and that particular carb is difficult to adjust! I would like to find the right carb (which I beleive is a 7H). They are apparantly quite rare. I did find one at an Austrailian site for $128 aus! If I can't find a "cost effective" carb, is there an alternative that works as well? I know that Perry makes one (model 4500) that sells for $42(US). It appears to be for helis. Does anyone have any experiance with these or can point me towards a good OS 7H carb?
Thanks in advance. I've found some really great advice on this site but this is my first official post.

Thanks Bax,
I did find that tower has them for $89. There is also one on Ebay that looks like it will go for cheap money because it has a piece broken out of the body on the mounting collar. (Not sure how that would effect things). I should pull the head off the engine to determine if it's worth putting $89 worth of carb into a 10-15 yr. old engine.
