Default News - G700XZ Gas Conversion

Blackoutmods.com is going to produce a gas conversion for the Trex 700X Dominator helicopter. As far as I can tell, this is the only commercially available conversion for this helicopter. When they are available I'll be carrying them for North American consumption.

DId you guys see the prototype on facebook?

11.3 lb, ready to fly with a heavy Hatori muffler. !!!!!!!

OMG this thing is a featherweight. I really want to see the build to understand how he did it... Which will probably make me want one.

I look at my two existing birds and I'm really scratching my head where to loose another full lb+ without touching the engine or electronics...


Looking forward to your build Carey!!!

All my parts are on order for mine as well. This will be my first gasser heli, so should be fun! Hoping Carey gets his just before I get mine so I can follow along on his build thread and gain any tips he has. He is also the one supplying my TRM300TT motor and TRM pipe for the build.

As with our JC Designs conversions I'll be offering an option package with the G700XZ conversion that has all the align parts, fuel tank and all the plumbing parts so you don't have to piece things together from multiple sources

Would still love to see Carey's detailed build report on the G700XZ from blackout, but for those of you interested in this heli I am loving mine, highly recommend you get one from Carey. Mine is on the TRM 300SE and TRM pipe, here is short video with less than full fuel at the start and I am rich still till the end when I ran it right out of fuel for the last flight of the day.

Blackout mods, G700XZ gasser flight (6 min 8 sec)
