Converting the LMH-110 Heli to E-Power Converting the LMH-110 Heli to E-Power
By Jim Bourke
Helicopters are fun, but are also quite challenging to fly. Recognizing this, Lite Machines markets an extremely rugged and simple helicopter intended for .061-sized glow engines: the LMH-110. This is a very small heli that is easy to transport, tough as nails, and cheap to repair. Though the LMH-110 is a rather heavy helicopter for its size, I felt that the extra durability would come in handy. I set out to do a conversion of the helicopter for electric power.
