Hello everyone.

I have an old Concept 30 SRT, and was just wondering what it's limits are in flight? Is it capable of loops, rolls, inverted? Are there any mods that can be done to make it more capable?

Thanks!

This machine can be .....................
This machine can be upgraded to the SRX level. I think I am right. You may need to get both manauls and sit down. SRX is a full 3D machine.

The biggest problem I can think of, is that the pitch range was so limited. I only managed to get 12 degrees or so of pitch and to maintain inverted flight you would need 18-20 degrees, although perhaps there was a way that someone knew of.

i dont know as much about the concepts as some guys do.. although i have a DX that is mostly upgraded to an SRX... i have mostly all the zeal parts... still hunting down a few....


from what i know, the SRT is the most different of them all, different mast, different ball links, almost no bearings...... its real basic, best bet is to find an SR or an SRX, SR is easily converted to an SRX.

the SRX was the full 3D concept, supposed to be a pretty decent heli for what it was.

SR-T had metall bushings instead of BB in the tail and tail/pitchslider
And none or or vrey few bearings in the head, mostly metall/plastic bushings instead if I rember correctly!
Longer mast

It was/is a real "plastic fantastic"!!

I learned to fly with one though!

You guys are making me wonder if I shouldn't just ebay this puppy. I was unaware that it was mostly bushings, as I bought it used and assembled.

I did fly it some last summer -- quite a bit actually. But I've done a lot of practicing over this winter and I'm hoping to start trying some simple aerobatics before next winter hits. Thats why I was wondering what it's limits were.

So what would you guys do? It's in WONDERFUL shape -- a really pretty bird. Sell and get a Hawk or Rappy? Or keep it as a beater or scale mechanics down the road?

Get a Caliber 30. Much improved design and is capable of all manuevers. Talk to Heliproz and ask their opinion of what to get for a good 30 class heli.

The Concepts are wonderful old heli's but they are just to difficult and expensive to find parts for. I never had the balls to try aerobatics with my Concept 30 as it's DDF head design was prone to boomstrikes. If you are looking for a wonderful aerobatic .30 go with the Caliber. I am having a blast with mine (now into basic aerobatics) and man does it haul a$$ around the sky.
