Hello all,

I have been tossing around the idea of building my first scale bird and I wanted to start with a Rappy 30 I have laying around but before I do that I figured I would ask the experts a few questions

What are considered good modern mechanics for 30 sized scale ships?

Who makes the best fuselages, ones that don't need hours of tinkering for them to fit together proper etc..

TIA

For simplicity:
Get the 50 tailboom/belt/linkage.
Funkey 46 size Long Ranger, A109, Bell222, Airwolf from Helicopter World.
Prepainted it will take a few evenings to put together. Paint yourself look at a month or so.

The 30 size fuses are very small for the R30 and most require surgery. The 46 size fuses don't weight much more and are easier to fit.

R50/LongRanger:

Rick,
you will find that some machines will fit in some fuses better than others. i will usually recomend a machine for a fuse depending on what is already on hand for example, if you already have a rappy, i say put it in any of the 46/50 fuses like Fritz recomended. if you however, want to say do a 30 size airwolf/bell222, i'd recomend the hawk sport or shuttle over the raptor. if you wanted to do the 30 size hughes 500 or jet ranger, i say use a shuttle plus. incidentally, the plus fits into all the 30 size fuses the best in my oppinion. anyway you get the idea.

what about fitting the jet stream with the raptor machs, would just the pitch just need to be cut, or even the jet ranger.

Hey I didn't ask for this fetish.!!!But I'am sure paying for it....

from what i can tell with the jetstream fuse, the same mods will apply for the rappy. your best bet is one of the 46 size fuses for minimum mods
