Carey, just wondering, can I ask why you do a poll like this one, considering that only maybe 35% of the heli flyers in the US post/reply on forums ? I mean lets look at your muffler poll (35 voters) and your oil poll (36 voters) what possibly can you learn from such low numbers

just wondering

Frankly, anything I can! The more I know about my audience, the better I can adapt the information I'm trying to provide.

Why do the % totals all add up to well over 100%?

not much I can do about how the poll works. However the number of votes for each should be pure

Default Gasser Heaven

I have two Chaos 600 HeliBug conversion kits. Both with Zenoa 290's by Hansen. One kit is in a two bladed pod and boom setup and the other one has a modified fourbladed main rotor system from Aerodyne,fourbladed tail rotor system in an Areodyne 600 JayHawk scale fuselage with Doctor Tim's flex cable. I'm using a Skookum 360 and Futaba 401 for gyro's, GV-1/ Stator Gator with Futaba servo's and a JR9303 radio. I am planning on getting a 700 HeliBug conversion kit in the future to build a Vario UH-1 scale model. I was sold on gassers on my first gasser flight. Gasser Heaven!!!
Thanks you Carey Shurley and Rotorterrier for your excellent reviews on the HeliBug conversion kit.

Tim
