Picked up a nexus 30 in mint condition. So being I already have a few other scale helis, I figured this one should also be a scale heli. Anybody have any suggestions on a fuse that will fit with minimal trouble?

the 30 size bell 222 and airwolf, longranger from century fits fine with no issues. with a longer boom, the 50 size fuses will work fine too

I fitted a Squirrel fuselage (Funkey I think) to a Nexus 30 a while back, it only needed two strips of wood epoxied on the flooor for the u/c bolts and two home made top mounts for the mechanics.
The only problem was that the exhaust touched the side slightly, but a hacksaw and mig welder soon had that sorted

here are the pics of the one i built years ago, a 30 size 222 from century, and converted it to a bell 230. with a 32, that sucker was fast just like my airwolf.

i have always recomended a jet or longranger for ease of installation and the simplicity of skid type gear. the 222/airwolf is a little more of a pain with retrax, and having to insert the boom form the rear to mate with the mechs.
