....I'm more of a Military, rescue or police type guy as for choices on my fuselages but this one, I don't know. Its not RTF yet but getting close. Maybe a 5 blade head would do it, not too sure if this one is a keeper?.......

Mechanics are Trex 600N converted to electric using the stock clutch system, it has a Scorp. 630kv in it now, thinking 10S because of the weight or a 550kv on 12S. The mechanics have been flown and tested with the 630kv on 6S with good results but now that I have the fuselage there is no way 6S is going to lift this brick.....

KEEP IT!!!
Definitely a keeper! The 5 blade will definitely set it off. And you can always change the paint scheme.

Just call me Farmer Brown. 'Cause I know how to really plant 'em

Keep it. Is that the 700 size G-Jive fuse with 600 mechs installed?

All helis and planes have an expiration date stamped on them...you only find it after you crash!!

Thanks guys!
Barry, its the 600 size.

Its huge but heavy. Not a bad build for the price, I do think I like Century fuselages better though. Still thinking on it, if I should keep it or not.

Well
Not sure now, my wife really likes it and my son thinks its cool and I have a local buyer and another one here on RR, decisions.....

Its the blue I guess, just not the shade of blue I like but it is an outstanding paint job, kind of 3D with the gray, not bad for an ARF fuse..

Helis are like women, they're all sexy, just some are sexier than others... If it doesn't float your boat and you have a buyer, maybe you should sell it and get what you really want...

"decisions....."

Are you getting a good deal, fair sale for both parties? I did this with a heli I liked, not one issue, parted with it, and then wanted to own it again. Maybe in your case, you can sell and forget, buy what you REALLY want instead of hanging on the fence. I had doubts selling mine, but now that it's long gone, I went with another brand and forgot all about it. Although, you can never have too many in this hobby.
