Can someone tell me if a Galaxy/Staysee style fuselage is available for the T-REX 600 N pro / OS 50 engine and where can I get one from.(see pic)
I don't know if the 60/90 size is the only one that they do. I'm not too keen on the Shark fuselage but as a last resort I would go for it.
Thanx in advance!

Actually, there is a Gracey (Staysee style) fuselage made by JR for the Sylphide 50.

I would be willing to bet that it could be easily modified to accept most any mechanics.

You would probably need to order it from Japan and shipping would be a little pricey.

Thanks for the link mdu6.
I'll have to inquire about the price shipped from Japan and see what it takes to get one....

Thanks for all your info guys. I'll follow it up and see what I can find. Interesting that someone does a 50 size Gracy.
Many thanks!

aerodynamically the black shark 50 would be the better fuse. You also pay for it. And it's fixing of the mechanics is also more secure.

Well it's been a few weeks but I found a J.R. Gracy 50 fuselage which I am slowly grafting one of my T-rex's into. Iv'e had to move the elevator servo to between the frames, and I have to cut the lugs for the tail gear box off. (the ones that the tail fin mounts to) I still have to add some standoff mounts for the fuselage to hang from. I have somebody looking for a nice little exhaust that will fit inside the fuselage. (Align and CY MP5 won't fit)
I'm only able to work on it at weekends so it will be a bit slow in coming.
Watch this space!

Am I the only one who was disappointed to open the thread and not see a video of someone flying a 600N inside a C-5 Galaxy? I feel so let down now.

Hi mdu6,
It's not the length that is the problem, it's the diameter of the pipe. The MP5 and align sit quite close to the fuselage and fuel tank. I found an old Hatori tuned pipe that fits perfectly but it's broken, (metal fatigue) and have someone trying to identify the model number. They're probably not available anymore which would be a pity 'cos it was a perfect fit. I'm not cutting any holes in the fuse until I have all the parts that I need.
Thank you for the info all the same. Every bit helps!

Could the pipe you have be welded back together? You might keep your eyes on ebay, all sorts of randomness pops up on there..

Hi Joeycoats,
The whole exhaust is full of cracks all over and would probably cost more to repair than a new one. I would have to be very lucky to find someone who could mend that one. Thanks for the idea though!

What's the length/diameter you are looking for, I might have something here

When I had the same problem with a scale fuse with raptor mech's I found the hatori 544 was good. It came with an exhaust port spacer to suit a raptor which if omitted bought it right next to the mech's (just had to trim a tail support standoff). I don't have an align pipe to compare it to sorry but the dimensions are available on the web or I could try to measure it in the fuse if you need.

Hey Unbalanced,
That pipe looks like it's going to do the job. It has a short manifold, appears to be narrow enough and long enough too. I can't see if the manifold is offset in the picture but I'll be down at the heli shop to have a look at the weekend. Fantastic work there mate!!
Thanx for the tip!

1. Today I have machined some small spigots that I have slipped some thick walled silicone tubing over to keep the fuselage (tail end) central/equidistant from the T-rex mechanics.
2. Made some standoff brackets from some old C/F sideframes which I have mounted on the left/right cyclic servos to keep front end of fuzz central.
3. Made some undercarriage mounting plates from a strip of G10 fiber glass plate.
4. Basically spent most of the time getting everything perfectly lined up before I start cutting and drilling the fuzz. Still looking for a suitable pipe/muffler
