Extreme Makeover of the Dynatron starter
We have this starter for about 8+ years, it is a great product and the motor is running very strong. Originally converted it to NiCd cordless (15.6V) system but during years of usage, the NiCd have passed their life span and no longer take/hold charge well. Starting helicopter has becoming more and more a frustration process. Emmm… Time for a new design.
Here is the current setup.
- Sullivan Dynatron S603 Super Power Starter
- Custom plexiglass bracket battery holder
- Multiple no-name NiCd batteries are from the nineties ( 2 x 7.2 in parallel) + (2 x 8.4 in parallel) in serial

Worth mentioning was the plexiglass mount , loved the design and fabrication. The K&S rubber battery holder mount underneath it securely. Anyhow, it is now retired. Did I mention there were a couple of times the switch blade arc welded itself together?
