Sullivan Dynatron Super Power Starter

Every RC modeler knows about The Dynatron starter. It is considered a field essential by most and instantly tames stubborn engines into submission with its amazing starting power. The most powerful Sullivan 2.50" starter. Features a machined aluminum drive cone with pulley groove, 2.50" diameter steel body and gold end caps. 12 or 24 VDC operation, maximum 80 amps. 340 in-oz (240 N-cm) of stall torque at 12V, 680 in-oz (480 N-cm) at 24V. 4800 no load RPM at 12V, 9600 no load RPM at 24V. For most engines up to 2.4 cubic inches (40 cc).

Dave's Notes: Well known to be the strongest direct drive starter of this diameter.
SKU Number: SULS603

Price:   $129.99 

Battery Holder for Kavan Planetary Gear Starter - Product Image

Battery Holder for Kavan Planetary Gear Starter

Originally designed to hold a 10 cell NiCad battery. Much safer to run a starter without a cord running back to your power panel or battery. Nothing to get tangled up.

Holder has room for up to 2 3200 3S Lipo Battery packs. A single pack is perfect for every a couple days of hard flying. Dual packs have more capacity than a standard field box gel battery. Eliminate weight in your field box by using your new 6400mah (6.4 amp hour) starter battery as your pump, charger and glow driver power source. Battery pack options available in drop down boxes below.

Standard Tamiya connectors included. We suggest upgrading to Deans Ultra to go between your battery and starter. If your getting the dual battery setup, you will also need to fabricate or purchase a Parallel Deans Y harness. These items are available in the Drop Downs below.

Another handy option is to modify the case with banana inputs. Allows you to plug a charger or fuel pump into your starter. Selecting the option with 4mm inputs gets this Y built and including hookup to 4mm banana inputs installed on your new case. (Grommet shown in factory photo is no longer included.)

Kavan Silicone Insert - Product Image

Kavan Silicone Insert

This fits only the Kavan Planetary Gear Starter. Much softer with better grip than the hard factory insert, toss that one in the trash and use this replacement. 1-5/8" OD x 1-3/8" Long
SKU Number: KAV0112B
Price:   $12.99 

Sullivan Hi-Tork 12V Starter - Product Image

Sullivan Hi-Tork 12V Starter

Heavy duty long life 12v starter. Comes with reversable starter driver for both spinners and direct against prop. Wires come bare and rady for included gators for direct connection to battery. You may also provide your own bananas and drive from a power panel. Dave's Comments: Costs more but it's well worth it in my view. Of all the direct drive normal sized starters, this is absolutely my favorite.
SKU Number: SULS600

A123/LithiumWerks LIFE Insert for Hobbico Power Core MKII - Product Image

A123/LithiumWerks LIFE Insert for Hobbico Power Core MKII

The Hobbico Power Core is a nice battery holder, the only problem is it comes with a small weakish lead acid battery inside. The voltage depression of this small battery is very large resulting in a weak performance from your starter. Running a 4S A123/LithiumWerks will just about double the torque you have now. The nominal voltage of a 4S LIFE pack is 13.2v. And, It''s voltage won''t depress nearly as much when your squeeze the trigger delivering more torque than ever before.

Our pack is designed to fit right into your Power Core case without any modifications. Although you could use the provided charge port in the power core, it is recommended that you use a Deans Ultra plug in the wire from the starter to the A123/LithiumWerks Power Core battery. This way you can unplug it and charge the pack directly. Your new battery may now be charged up to 10 amps if you please. The stock lead acid charger should be discarded. Only charge with a charger in A123/LithiumWerks charge mode.

Note, you must install a connector on your starter wire up to the task. Suggested connectors are listed below. If you order a "Set for Starter Wire", you''ll get a complete set of plugs. The one you don''t put on the starter wire can go on the battery if you wish to install it yourself. If so, sellect "None" for Output Connector. If you select an output connector, we''ll put it on the pack for you ready to go. You''ll still need to install a plug on your starter wire to match.

A123/LithiumWerks LIFE Insert for Sullivan S642 Battery Box - Product Image

A123/LithiumWerks LIFE Insert for Sullivan S642 Battery Box

Custom designed A123/LithiumWerks battery to fit your Sullivan S642 battery box.

4 A123/LithiumWerks cells nominal voltage: 12.8V. More punch than a 12V lead acid or 10 cell NiCad battery.
5 A123/LithiumWerks cells nominal voltage: 16.0V. Equivalent to 13 cell NiCad/NiMH.
6 A123/LithiumWerks cells nominal voltage: 19.2V. Equivalent to 16 cell NiCad/NiMH.
8 A123/LithiumWerks cells nominal voltage: 25.6V. Better power than two 12V Lead Acid batteries in series.

Our pack comes to you ready to plug into the Sullivan battery monitor board and is designed to fit right into your S642 case without any modifications. Refer to Sullivan for correct blade and polarity hookup.*

We suggest our custom charge cord for directly charging the battery through the XH balance connector. Simply pop open the yellow door on the side of the holder and connect to the balance harness. The opposite end of our cord connects to both the balance input of your charger as well as the standard 4mm banana charge output port. Limit charge current to 2 amps through the balance harness. Only charge with a charger in A123/LithiumWerks balance charge mode set to proper cell count and 2 amps maximum.

Special Notes for 25.6V battery: Use the 4S charge cord. The battery will have two 4S balance connector outputs. Charge through each of the two ports individually with charger set for 4S (12.8V) LIFE battery. NEVER charge them at the same time by using a Y harness or any two charge ports utilizing the same power source. If you do, fire or injury will result. (The SMOKE and BLUE LIGHT light will escape likely burning the hands that are holding the connectors, possibly ruin your battery and destroy your once beautiful battery box. Aw shucks!) Charging each 1/2 of the 8 cell pack separately and consecutively is required because most people do not own a charger capable of addressing an 8S battery pack. If you own a charger capable of 8S in LIFE mode, we can special build the pack and charge cord for you.

*Lithium batteries connected to electronic circuits must be charged periodically to prevent the circuit from running the pack dry. A Lithium pack ran down to zero cannot be recovered. The Sullivan battery box is presumed to be designed not to ruin a battery. However, we will not provide a warranty for any battery run to zero by this or any other device. Don't ask, don't tell us about it. Test and charge your battery periodically at your own discretion.

Yes, there is a small premium over our normal A123/LithiumWerks pack builds. Because of the restricted space, packs to fit the Sullivan battery box require extra time to build.

*Special Note: The very early version of this battery box could run a battery down if the voltage programming button had never been depressed. This was corrected in late 2015. It's a good idea to go ahead and set the voltage even if you won't be referencing the voltage. Sullivan is a great company and this is the finest battery box available in my view.
