The good news is if you need parts for Kyosho helis, you can get them here.http://www.quest-co.jp/ This is the new Manufacturer for the Kyosho 30, and 90. I do not know about the Caliber 5&6. I have been in contact with them and seems like a good company. They are sometimes a little slow to answer, but they will answer.

I have been looking around.

I am able to read a little of it. I have been going back and forth between google and the site to translate.

For some un-known reason, I have always liked the Caliber 30. Not sure why, but I wanted it soooooo bad back in the day. Yet when I found Kyosho was not going to support it, I never bought one.

Buzz.

I already got a price quote from a japanese online stores.

I'm just wondering, why japanese online stores charge me for paypal fees?

It's going to be around 25 $ US just for paypal fees.?
.

Does anybody has more informations about the performance of the

"Neo-CALIBER E6S-550"?

That would make some sence out of why their parts were so high. Two middlemen in the pricing!

I love my Caliber 30 and will fly it until I can no longer repair it.

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

That previous post of mine was made some time ago..

Now it's official that Quest Japan continues with the Caliber helicopter line. Time will tell if they will be successful ( and if they will survive ).

They might be focusing on the Japan market first, their website is only in Japanese so far ( but Google translate is your friend ):

http://www.quest-co.jp/rc/index.html

...on the other hand the climate for (premium) hobby manufacturers is not so great these days - and since the tsunami hit - it might be even more difficult on the Japan's domestic market.

They seem have refreshed the Caliber line - so it has some good stuff from Kyosho times - belt driven transmission, pull-pull tail control, vibration-absorbing carbon-plastic frame etc.. - but now with lightened motor support and canopy, changed gearing, updated eCCPM linkage - and also they released FBL heli versions.

For the E-powered helis they use the same clip-in bottom-inserted battery pack as it was designed for the FunTech Staysee fuselage for the E-Caliber 90.

As for parts' prices - the bill for the parts tends to stay smaller
- if you try to crash less often ;-)

That's why I don't take too many chances with the Caliber. I just enjoy economical crusing with it and an OS32. i have toyed with the idea of converting it to e power though.

I contacted the company Quest about my concern about parts support.

And here is, what they said
(it's just a part of the e-mail conversation)

Thank you very much for your email.
You do not need the worry of the spare part supply. Because all parts are made at the own factory.

Sincerely,

That's right. We have the good support from Quest. And the price is good and more reasonable now. We are at Hong Kong, also with good price.

Well then, maybe rcheliwerkz can keep selling parts for a while anyway.

I just learned of this company and visited their site using Google translate. I've contacted them thru email and they responded immediately as to the part number I was looking for. (thus, looking on the manual to make an inventory list of those parts.) They seem to be true to their objective of continuing parts support especially when they revived the Caliber 30-60 lines (with FBL setup)

I'm really glad I can restore my good ole kyosho caliber 30! especially the flybarless set up (using either BeastX or V-Bar).

Thanks to Quest Japan!

Here are a few choices:

1.) Contact Wendy Hope from http://rcjapan.net/

And I'm sure she can get you the parts - you are looking for.

2.) Contact Champ international RC . It's a very organized hobby shop in Japan and you can send them an e-mail in english.

Here is their e-mail address: champ_international@yahoo.co.jp

3.) Or contact Tokyo Hobbies Corp.

Here is their e-mail : info@tokyo-hobbies.com

attached is the conversation I had with their manager

Dear Marc , We thank you for your interest in Quest products.We have been working as their export agent from Japan, so your e-mail has been forwarded to us from them. Quest is making parts for Neo/ Caliber helicopter, so intend to continueto sell more new items, as well as selling existing stock. Please see the products details on their official website, and feel free to ask us if you have any inquiry. We look forward to hearing from you. Thank you. Best regards,Masato Maruko,Director, TOKYO HOBBIES CORP.

@vortechZ230

you can order from them but as per our correspondence (thru email with their sales@quest.xxx.xx), you need to have an agent in Japan.

luckily I have a friend who works in a Japanese plant and is also into rc hobby (not with rc helicopters but nitro cars...)

so if you have an agent in Japan, you can order from quest. or you may go the route as spacecopter mentioned above
