Heli engine possible use for plane?

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
As title states, i originally created this thread in the wrong topic (my bad sorry).

I have an OS MAX FX .46 motor thats sitting in front of me that i'd like to toss into my plane. Has this been done before? I've never done it personally so i'd like some advice prior to trying it.

I know temps may be an issue since on a plane your not at about 75% throttle all the time but i could run leaner.

I'm sure it can be done, just grab the adaptor for prop but i'd like to hear from you about it

Re: Heli engine possible use for plane?

If you run lean you can burn it up very quickly. You can set the needle when it is full throttle and point the nose in the air or pinch the fuel line to check. It should lean out and speed up a bit. You can fly with that setting or the one I prefer is adjust for top rpm and back off or richen up about 500 rpm. Heli engines need the extra cooling with more fin area as they are not in the open air getting the best air flow. I think if you check after a flight it will be just as hot as an aircraft type.
