I recently picked up a Concept SR-X from a guy off RunRyder. I have been flying a Century Hawk and very impressed with it.

But man, am I impressed with the SRX. The head is mostly metal, the entire thing very smooth and tight. Now I am wondering if I should have started with the Caliper...

Well, maybe Caliber, a caliper is a measuring device.

The SRX's were (and still are) pretty lively choppers. Parts are getting scarce, however.

You'd probably like the Caliber. It's a well thought out kit and flies well. It is pretty low maintenance, light, and agile. It also has a relatively low parts count. The belt drive transmission has to be heard to be appreciated, as there is NO transmission noise in the heli, unlike those screaming pinions and spur gears found on the Nexus, and to a lesser extent, the Concepts.

I actually can't complain too much about my Hawk, its been a good ship that has been much abused. I'm just surprised these birds are not more widely pushed, they seem to be pretty good quality. Then again, it could fly like crap

This one is all metal except the center part of the head. Was that normal on the SRX or an upgrade?

I don't use IE. It would not have helped, Caliper is spelled correctly, just wrong thing!

my srx

I learned to hover on a Concept 30 DX 11 years ago. I crashed it back then...throughout the years I have been upgrading it with the thought of flying it soon....10 years later, still on the bench, but this time it's converted to an SRX with Zeal metal head, Zeal metal frames, metal tail rotor grips, tail support boom, etc, etc, etc,...And it still has not flown.

I recently bought a Caliber so that I can relearn to fly again. I wanted to fly the DX\SRX again but I don't want to thrash it due to the shortage of parts so I got the Caliber. I know the Caliber is probably way better stock than my SRX souped up, but I'll find out. Waste of time and money or not, it's fun fixing up the SRX.
