Saving weight in the flight box
Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
Is anyone using lithium Ion starter packs.
I am going to use 8 Makita LiIo cells to power my electric starter. This is going to reduce the weight of my flight box quite a bit.
The battery pack measures about 1&1/2" x 2&1/2" x 3" and only weighs 362 grams (12.77 ounces).
The pack I made for a friend worked great. Started a 42 cc gas engine using a Kavan geared starter.
If you want to buy an 8 cell pack here is the link
