12V Starter?

Why should I go out and buy a 12v starter,battery, and extension for my
rapter 30 w/ a tt36, when Ive got a 18V cordless drill with a 6mm socket on
an extension ?
Is there really a difference?

thanx, chris

Why?

I wouldnt mind betting that the 12v starter has a damm sight more torque
than the battery drill (which may also have speed control). The only
advantage in the 12v motor may be the use of a one way starter shaft, but
then there are a load of peeps that don't use them either!.

Its easy to stop a 12v motor from starting but you try and stop an 18v
drill starting and then figure out what it will do to a hydro locked
engine.

If his drill has torque settings then this would not be a problem.

Re: 12V Starter?

You're in a bloody expensive hobby. a 12v gel cell doesn't cost much,
neither does the starter & shaft. In the grand scheme of things, they're
going to be with you for rather a long time, and so the value is good.

My Craftsman 600 RPM drill doesn't spin fast enough to start my Rappy
..36 engine.

There's no such beast. Get a cheap one and you'll get another in a very
short time. Get a good one (Sullivan) and it'll serve you well for the next
20 years. My own Sullivan is at least 15 years old and probably longer. It
starts EVERY heli I've ever had and most other people's at the field when
their crappy starters won't even LOOK at their motors.

The difference in price between a cheap thing and a Sullivan isn't that much
either, so it's definitely false economy to get cheap in this instance.
