Has anyone done any scale projects with the Gaui 550? Does it fall under a 30 size or 50 size? If anyone has links to some scale projects I love to see them. I am kind of flip flopping between my next project being either a swift, Trex500 or Gaui550. I keep hearing that Century has troubles with spare parts etc, and the Trex just seems on the small side for most scale options. Thanks!

the G550 is a .30 size for scale purposes.

once i get my flight times past 5 mins without I may consider putting mine in a Fuse.

I never 3D it anyway.

Couple of years ago i fitted a funkey 30 agusta to mine 550 std,had
to do a plattform inside the fuse to lift up the mech in position,took 2 days to adapt the mech,a easy job with nothing remarkable, flew very well with a nice sound, a nice looking heli in mine opinion!

I'm currently working on fitting my Gaui 550 with the Century Twinstar fuse. The mechanics will fit perfectly once the plywood rack is completed.

I did the 425 conversion, blades, belt, boom, and stuck it in a HeliArtist 500 Airwolf fuse, works gear! and I get about 7 minutes of flight time. Scorpion 1600kv motor (for trex500)

6S 2500 megapower
