Can someone tell me if it would be easy to put a Velocity 90 mechanics into this scale fuselage?

MD 500 Camouflage Scheme
Item No. 3834-D

Website: http://www.tiger.com.tw/product/3834-D.html

It is the Thunder Tiger scale fuselage for 60-90 Raptor but I want to put a Velocity 90 in it.

Shouldn't be very difficult. The MD500 usually has tons of space because of it's large round shape. Mechanics are usually mounted into the fuse with some mounting blocks bolted to the base of the helicopter frame. Most of these after market scale fuses are designed to accept just about any brand mechanics. You just have to be prepared to make some modifications if needed.

I have one of theses fuses , It is a straight forward install . The only trouble you may have is the rear mount for the landing gear . I have a Raptor 90SE , which it is made for . You just switch the rear frame mounts that come with the fuse kit . They move the stock mounts back about 2-3 inches . YOu might have to make something on your heli to move the rear mounts back to get the balance right .

Also the mechanics mount to the landing gear struts , and not to a wood former that is glued to the fuse walls .
