Hey all.
i have a 30 cal.That i have had for about 2 years now.
A friend of mine gave me a futaba radio its a FP-7UAB PCM/With a PCM 1024 FP-R129DP receiver.
Will this gear be ok with my heli.

Second question.
I am looking to buy my servos.I have a futaba S9350 servo sitting here.I use it in my Mugan buggy for steering.
Will it work for the tail?

And what do you recommend for the other 4 servos
I was looking at the Futaba S3152 Servos

I am getting the 401 gyro also..Am i headed in the right direction?

Im not sure what radio that is, is it the futaba 7CAP/7CHP?? if so then yes that's a great TX to start with,
now the futaba S9350 servo don't look that fast, but what you didn't say was what gyro are you going to put this servo with???(((edit yes you did)))
and being its made for model cars i would not use it mate
If you have not bought the gyro yet then i would recommend the Futaba GY401 and the 9254 combo, there perfect gyro and servo combo and very easy to set up.
as for the Futaba S3152 Servos i also used them on a caliber 30 heli and i gained a lot of slop with them with in 2 flights, they dont have much torque and there slow, so if your on a tight budget i would recommend the
Hitec HS 6635HB Karbonite Digital High Torque Servo
the spec is:
Bearing Type: Dual Ball Raced
Dimensions: 40x20x37mm
Gear Type: Karbonite Gears
Speed @ 4.8v: 0.18S/60dg
Speed @ 6.0v: 0.15S/60dg
Torque @ 4.8v: 15Kg/Cm
Torque @ 6.0v: 16Kg/Cm
Weight: 52g

im using these on my 50 and there great servos and don't cost that more than the s3152s

Does your heli have a Mechanical ccpm swash plate ? or CCPM ?
The reason I'm asking is cause if you have a MCCPM swash, I can explain the setup very easily.

The old 7ua airplane radio?????

I'm pretty sure a Diffrent transmitter would be a wise investment.

Or your going to have to do some old school mixing

Ok, if your swash is Mechanical CCPM and you are able to mix one channel with another, then you can use that radio. If your going to thru the trouble of bying another radio. I would suggest the DX7

I have no clue if it is a CCPM?.I am just getting started here with this heli.
Its a Kyosho caliber 30 That i picked up a few years ago.It is all stock.i have read that that the ratchet throttle.Would not be good for a Heli.Because its not smooth???Is there any thing to that?
My TX on my G2 sim is a ratchet type!

So The DX7 Is A good radio.Have you used the DX7..

I like my futaba 3PK with The DSM/Spec system..
I use it for all my suffice R/Cs.

DOnt worry about the rachet throttle. It's just a preferance. Mine has a rachet feel. I would rather have it. The DX7 is the ultimate heli radio. It's kinda hard to explain what Mccpm and CCPM are. I'll try. OK, Look at your swash plate. If you have a ball joint on all four sides, it is a MCCPM. If it only has three ball joints on it and shaped like a triangle it's CCPM. But aside from all that, If you cannot mix two channels together then you need a heli radio.

The Caliber 30 can be setup either mechanical mix or CCPM mix. The problem is in the TX. Can the 7U support CCPM mix? I recently setup a Caliber 30 with the DX7 and CCPM for a buddy of mine. It is relatively simple. I don't have the bird now so I can't get into specific settings. But I do know that the Cal30 is a great flying machine and a great trainer. It will take you from learning the basic of hovering and FF on into basic aerobatics and light 3D with a OS .37 or TT .39 and a good pipe. It is what I started out with and I recently sold it to RR member AgentOrange. It is now training him. It is a great aircraft with a couple of great online sources for parts. The best is Chris at RCHeliworks. He is awesome when it comes to customer service and very knowledgable when it comes to the Caliber and other helicopters. As for as the servos, you want to make sure you get 3 of the exact same model if you set the helicopter up CCPM. The 3 servos that control your swash plate work together. If one is faster/slower than the others, it will make setup hell. The 401/9254 combo is a perfect match for this heli. I wouldn't recommend anything else. If you haven't got an engine yet, I would recommend getting the .37 right off the bat. It is tame enough to learn on but powerful enough to rip up the sky when you learn how to. Any other questions, head over to the Kyosho forum and ask them there. There is a ton of knowledge there and it is the hangout for probably the most knowledgable guy there is for the Caliber. RR member dkshema. He knows his stuff when it comes to this bird. Hope this helps you out.

DX7 I have been seening a lot of bad stuff ,,I don't feel comfy telling a newbi. to get a radio that has only been out a few mths.

Might want to get either a JR or Futaba heli radio

Don't want to argue,, do your own searches on the forums heli and slab you'll see.

Most Heli radios dont have the rachett on left stick
