Kyosho Caliber 30
My first helicopter was a Kyosho Caliber 30 with a OS Max 32sx and original muffler year 2003, very quiet but not too powerful,still a great heli, I upgraded it as much as I could ,aluminum fan, aluminum main blade grips, carbon blades instead of wooden ones, carbon tail blades, Futaba GY601 gyro and Futaba GV1 governor, and flew the heck out of the heli, until I literally worn out the engine, then I moved to a TT Raptor 50 and Xcell 1005 , but still kept the caliber a couple years until I sold it.

Now I fly mainly 700 size helicopters

My first was in 1980 - A Sport 500 fixed pitch from MFA in the UK!!

I struggled to learn anything (except how to rebuild!!) until I got my 1st Hirobo Shuttle.

Kyosho Concept 30 was my first heli back in 1996. I spent a couple of grand on that helicopter in crash parts but learned to hover.

Micro Mold Lark with a HB25 engine in 1980......sheesh!

Recall seeing my first successfully flying heli, a American Revolution machine at the World Champs in Southport (UK) in 1977 or was it 1979 being flown superbly by a American certainly got the juices flowing!

Followed by Schluter machines and then Hirobos up to this day. Have deviated off on a tangent with Aligns converted to turbines recently though.
