Default Cordless Drill for Starter?

Hey, i was trying to start my dad's heli for te first time and the starter piece that holds the allen extension got stripped off the starter so it wont fit now. I want to get the engine tuned b4 winter, and was wondering if my drill is fast enough to start the motor? It goes 1100RPM.

(The motor is a .32 webra)

I have the Ryobi 18V and it starts everything that anyone's tried to use it on including 60's.

Be careful with the torque, you may damage the engine if it is flooded and try to start with a high torque drill

Just use the drills clutch to limit the torque, and if a hammerdrill, make sure it is out of that mode. Use slow to med speed. Best starter there is
