Oh Ok. You really can't run them very well on the 120 because they are smaller and do not produce the same lift. You can run them on the 120 but you need to change the motor out for a little hotter one to increase the headspeed a bit.

It has been done. You just need higher headspeed.

I am pretty sure they only will provide sufficient lift with lipo's.

Replace the tail with the shorter tail boom that comes with the 117, install all hardware for that tail to include the tail feathers, remove that slow motor and install a Brushless w/matching ESC, install those smaller blades, balance the bird, and hold on, you now have a FP Hot Rod that flies circles around a stock 120. I think this is the best FP Helo you can have w/o breaking the bank, and the size is big enough to keep up with. I like so much I have two built to fly, two NIB, and a box of spare parts. The best part I ever purchased was a Titanium tail boom, do not worry at all about tail strikes. So as you can see, there is still someone playing with these unlimited flying platforms. Your imagination is the only limit to what you can come up with these birds. To tell the truth, think about it, these guys at LMH got it right the first time, got the attention of the Military, now they build UMV's for them. I belive we have not seen the last of LMH either, they just have their hands full for Uncle Sam.

I agree with Rickey. The 120 is the tank of helis'. Even though it's FP and not too complicated, replacing parts is not as often as the others out there. Not so perfect landings won't cost you hours on setting it up again and not the usual $50-$100 in parts. The size is right, also.
I too have stockpiled parts. Too many in fact. I'll be posting parts for sale soon here.

There are actually people that cut of their 120 blades an inch or so once they have moved over to Lipo's.
They do this is to get a higher headspeed which makes the heli a little more stable and maybe a little more responsive..
