Hi

I have done alot of research into scale heli's and really not sure which one to buy.
I have looked and read alot about the century ones in all different types. My question is, would it be better to go ahead and buy one of the century scale with mechanics?
I already have a R50v2 that I would be willing to put in a fuse but I believe there is some issues with fitting one in.
Can someone please give me a few good pointers on this. I have already done a search on this and did not really find what I was looking for.

Thanks in advance.

Ifrst and formost, how much money and how much time do you have???

If you have plenty of time, then I would take you raptor and stick it into one of the Funky Long Rangers. Simple, no major mods, everything jsut plops into place and you can take the mechanics out and go pod and boom in no time!!!

The money thing only comes into play if you have no time and have to get someone else to build it for you but I dont recomend that!!!!

look for caliraptor on here and find his site!! Mark McAlpine is his name and he has a great site for building jsut this thing!!!

Thanks for the reply's

Nice Paint Work

I will look at Marks site and go from there.
Just curious, I'm not worried in anyway form or fashion about the mechanics, but what about the paint job? I have really never tried my hand at a professional paint job but I do have all the needed equipment for such a job.
So is the painting usually the most difficult part of assembly?

Thanks
