Default help! V-Max 6 And V-Max 7

I know virtually nothing about the LMH. Could someone explain difference between the Vmax 6 and 7 motors?

One is .6 and the other .74 cubic inches. I had bad luck with my v-7 and converted to electric. A os cv .12 would be a better choice for this heli. The norvel engine died on me all the time and i could never get it runing well. This was partly do to its crab/throttle design. The throttle was controled by closing and opening the exhasut hole. The carb barrel was always wide open and had only one needle. Pretty primitive IMO.

The heli on the other hand was a blast to fly and SUUUUUPPPPPERRRR durable.

Hmm, Wanna sell it? Sounds like something to tinker with. The throttling you describe reminds me of the way Cox used a throttle ring. I always liked the way they worked but it was no comparison to a truly carburated motor.

How about $40 including shipping?

To be honest with you, i had about 4 hours of tinkering with that engine for about 1/2 an hour of flying.

I wish you luck if you try one

A shame about your engine problems. I had very good luck with mine. Here's the .06 on the bench. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-h76s_N8WPs

And here's the same engine converted to rear exhaust. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RiLitPGYmdM

As explained, this engine is going to be installed in an ARK 400 Heli. Using the clutch parts from the LM Heli, it's looking like a relatively easy retrofit. Well, as long as you have a lathe.
