Can anyone tell me of an scale fuselage that will fit the trex efl 600? I can't seem to find one they all say 600n or 600e which is the older style trex. I hate to get rid of this heli I would like to find one that will work! Thanks any info will be helpful. By the way I have been looking at the fuselages on scaleflying.com and align scale bodies. Thanks in advance

I don't know what hardware comes with the RCA AS350 but I know that the machined posts that come with the Century body allowed me to install the EFL Pro in their body kit. I have a thread on here about the build and it is fairly complete. I don't have any complaints about either company but this is one bird the 600 Pro fits like a dream. You will need the ESP/Nitro main shaft and longer links but those are easy to get from a stocking Align dealer. I can remove the chassis in a matter of minutes and it takes one cable tie per removal/install. If you go with the Century body kit and their three blade head, I can give you the measurements of the links and walk you through how to install the swash balls and where to get them from.

I don't have any other recommendations for bodies that it will directly fit it and even one of the ususal suspects for easy installs, the MD500, would be a difficult install because of the motor being bottom up and right in front of the main shaft. You could put it in a Jet Ranger but the MD500 would be a heartache. You will end up making some parts of the mounting for most Jet Rangers on your own. Even the Airwolf from HeliArtist has difficulties with the battery try even though the entire nose removes. My number one choice would be the AS350 and second, the Jet Ranger, both from Century. After that, you're on your own. Take care.

You might want to consider scouting for an original 600E or a 600ESP mechanics set on the used market. They are usually priced reasonably, and will give you a large range of fuselage choices. The ESP would be the best choice as the elevator servo mounts between the frames. The original 600E mounts that servo on the outside of the frames which makes it a dog house clearance issue on some fuselage kits. Also, the RCA Chaos is essentially an ESP with a bit of extra room between the frames and sells for about $300 new.

Thanks 2tall I may go that route or sell it and pick up an older 600n and use that, because I like the nitro better longer run times. The elec would be a lot more cleaner application and look a lot more realistic though. I really like the jive fuselage from scaleflying.com

The 600N would give you the most choices as you can always do an E-conversion should electric power become your preference - even still using the clutch. Regarding flight times, the lower head speeds and calmer flying styles associated with scale will yield longer E powered flight times than you may expect. My 600E scale ships average about 10 minutes on a 6S 5000mah pack.

+1 on the Chaos!

I bought the nitro version so I can convert it to electric and still use the clutch on it.
