Hi Guys I have a Fun-key Bell 222 60 size Fus which I wish to build but the issue I have at the moment, is as the 60 size has now changed into a 50 size. I am trying to figure out the best choice open to me. That's where you guys I hope can help I am looking for Mechanics that would suit and also Mechanics that I could use a 60 OSmax in as I have two of these that have never seen fuel yet so it would be a shame not to use these.
Looking at the Mechanics that I may be able to use is the Titan X50T Torque Tube Helicopter and extend the drive tube, or the Align T-Rex 600N DFC and extend the drive on it. But at the moment I just don't know can anyone throw any advice into the mix and have any ideas or done it that can help get this bird into the air.

I'm not real familiar with the 222 fuse, however, there are many options for overcoming the length of the tailboom on the mechanics vs the fuse. If the 222 has a tail box cover similar to the jet ranger, you can always modify the length of the fuse saving the gear box cover and attaching it in a different way, or cut boom and re glass it. I have modified many MD 500's as well as reinforced the tailboom and installed a tail rotor gearbox into fuse with out the use of the tailboom from the mechanics. Mechanics can also be positioned fore/ aft to compensate for boom length in the fuse. The easiest route would probably be a longer tail boom and belt or drive. The sky is the limit when it comes to scalers. Good luck.

Thanks for the info I had thought of cutting the fus I think I will need about 10cm of the length and then glass the inside and fill and sand the outside. Or splice a drive tube just have never done it before hence the request for advice Think I will order up a Titan tomorrow, and see how it fits and also see if I can get the 60 size motor in.
