I have the opportunity to get a 30 sze fuse,

I appreciate these are rare hence the reason for something different and not often seen

I was wondering if anyone has done one of these and what mechanics they chose,i have a trex 600E which will need some changes as i see it has the angled tail.

thankx Gav, have Pmmed you, saw your lovely youtube vid.. very smooth flying.

Ady,
I loved this helicopter, as a kid when i used to go the beaches along the kent coast the yellow wessex used to come over every day from RAF Manston as it was then known, i had a phobia of it, and would never go into the sea until it went over once in morning then late afternoon,the side doors were always open and the winch man would wave to everyone along the beach.. and when it got to Ramsgate they used to do rescue practice to the pleasure of the beach bathers..

It is something different,so look forward to having a go..

Matt

All The Best

Hi Gav,
I pick up the fuse on Monday, so will put up some photo's, it is just a bare fuse with no wood work and no glazing.
SO will have to hunt around or have a go at making some moulds,

I was wondering what you used for the angled tail, the option as i see it is the flexi drive system from starwood or the angled tail setup from RC Aerodyne,

as to the head i have been looking at the ones below, if anyone else has any others they know of please post.

All The Best

Matt
I think your fuselage might one made for Slough model shop back in the 80s. There was a series of fuselages made for the Kalt Baron 60 range. I have the Wessex and Sea King as in the photo. They are both about 48" long. The Wessex consists of the fuselage, rear cover on the fin and the cover behind the cockpit. Raptor 30 V1 in background for size comparism.
