Shuttle RG A Great Heli

I loved my RG, I only sold it because I moved up to 60 and now 90 sized ships. Sceadu parts might work. Three areas of concern: the RG uses a smaller start shaft than the Sceadu (4mm vs 5mm, I think), uses an 8 mm mainshaft. Maybe the Sceadu part will work. The RG came in an M version which had a longer tail boom, but used a belt drive. So long as it's the same size as the current Sceadu tail boom, that should work. If it's shorter, a Sceadu tail system might fit.

Good luck.

Panos, what can i say ? not many Israelis surf RR...

RotorheadBob, the biggest problem is actually the pinion \ engine mount, not the tail - the longer tail is relatively simple.

If You Get A 50 In It...

I want to see it. I was thinking about my old RG the other day. So much like an Eagle II in a 30 sizeed package. It was just too heavy. Despite that, mine was super smooth and a real beauty. A 50 would be perfect. I would almost want to try and buy mine back and modify it!

I loved mine so much I kept it. Figured it wasn't worth selling it. It's collecting dust right now but it will be back. I think some of the parts for the GPH fit the RG, not sure about the gearing compatibility though. Send Jeff Green an email, he would know.

BTW, dont break the tail belt! Or you will be picking yourself up off the floor when you check the price.

If you want to use an OS 50, buy a Century Shuttle 46 upgrade kit. It will just drop into a ZXX or the RG. If you can find one that is. I think Century discontinued it. None the less, it is Century part number CN2054B.

I also recall Capital had a 46/50 conversion set for the Shuttle ZXX (so it will work on the RG as well). -Steve
