Difference between OS 61 SX-H, OS 61 SX-HG, OS 61 SX-HGL

Hi all,

I want to know if there is a difference between:
OS 61 SX-H WC           268 $
OS 61 SX-HG WC  318 $
OS 61 SX-HGL WC 336 $
except from the cooling head. They all have the same carb, the same
amount of power,....
Is this the only thing or are there other differences, because I've
noticed a rather great difference in price. The SX-HG has the smallest
cooling head but costs significant more than the SX-H.

Thanks folks

the HG version fits only in Schluter and Hiem Helis (German), in the USA they
are priced about the same 250

Not sure on the -HGL Stefaan but my understanding on the -HG is that
this is a special version for the Heim/Vario helis. These tend to
require dimmensionally different crankshaft and heads to fit the
mechanics.

Check out http://www.osengines.com for a spec and dimmension chart.

Note that the -HG crank is smaller and is NOT suitable for the XCell 60,
Kyosho Concept 60 etc.

Probably the higher cost reflects the limited sales of a special
version.

As well as having a std aero type roundhead the HG also has a different
crank,a longer 8mm plain crank threaded near the end with no steps in
it's diameter.The HG's were designed to cater for Heim heli mechanics
where the cylinder head is part of the fuz structure and clamps to the
std roundhead.I think it's a ripoff but they probably charge more
because they don't sell as many.I bought an SXHG for my Futura SE about
4yrs ago and it cost 240 bastard quid and i still had to sort another
cylinder head extension for it.It isn't better coz it's more
expensive,if that's what you were thinking it might be.I haven't a clue
what a HG-L is,probably a variant of the HG,the L means lighter,your
wallet that is:-)

Thanks Martin,

in the meanwhile I discovered that the the HGL is the same as the HG
but wilth a large head instead of the aero type head
