This is new to me in the Kyosho heli section. I have a friend who is just getting into heli's and I talked him into a Raptor 30 for now because I used to fly Rappies and they are an all around great heli. The Caliber would be a great beginners helis also if the parts supply would be easier to find. No flame war please, but he picked up his Raptor and now wants to sell the Caliber .30. I want to get it to my house and look it over and maybe even put it into a hover. I know it has cheap Futaba servos, Fut. Skysport heli radio, 72mhz rx, and an older piezo gyro single rate I think, but it does have the OS .32 and pipe. From the pics Ive seen of it, it looks to be in nice flying condition but I will inspect it before a sale. Honest opinion on whats its worth would be great. Thanks

I've got less than $150 in mine not counting the 401 and 9254. Wouldn't sell it for anything as I love flying it!

Anything is possible if you don't know what you are talking about!

They're hard to give away these days.

The radio in that heli was not worth a whole lot to begin with, if the gyro is a old Heli Max piezo gyro, it's not worth the powder to blow it to..., and the OS 32, though a nice little motor, makes for an underpowered 30-sized heli.

Kyosho seems to be leaving heli's behind and not wanting much to do with the heli-end of their business.

I owned three Caliber 30's, really liked them. The Raptor 30 V2 seems to be a decent 30-sized heli, especially with an OS 37 and decent muffler. Never thought I'd write that in this forum, but the Raptor 30 is a much more capable heli than the Caliber.

Thanks
Didn't figure it was worth much, think he was asking $300 last time I spoke with him. He wanted me too sell it for him but I don't think Iam going to mess with it. I know what the electronics are worth but wasn't sure on the Caliber airframe and the motor. Feebay would be his best bet Iam guessing. Thanks all.

I tried to sell a Caliber 30, pretty much RTF with an OS 37 and KSJ muffler (add receiver, program your transmitter, and fly) for quite awhile here on RR about a year ago. I finally sold the airframe -- no electronics, no motor, for $50, shipped. Shipping via FedEx ground ate up about $20 worth of that.
