I thought this would be the best place to ask and
Get the correct answer. I have the thunder tiger
X-50 TT glo and just put the FBL head on I would
Like to get a scale fuse to put on this Machine and
Hopefully one that will fit fairly easy without a lot of
Mods? Looking for some suggestions,I also know that
The muffler will have to be changed to work with the fuse.
Hope to get some good input.
Thanks guys
Johnny

is the fbl head you installed a 2 bladed head? if so, a jet or longranger would be perfect. nothing complex to worry about like an angled tail drive or mutlibladed head or retracts.

drive a rotary, fly a rotorcraft

And Then....
There is this one...

If this kit is ANYTHING like the scale bodies they made for the Titan 325, it will include EVERYTHING you need in the kit to mount your heli into it...
Worth a look for sure!!!

Good Luck and welcome to the scale addiction

"FUGLY"!!!!!!!!
grim.the.grim, that has to be one of the uglyest helis out there...I'll bet that even if you put a pork chop on it the family dog still wouldn't play with it!!! Actually, there is no doubt that it will look great in the air...and maybe on the ground too!!!
Just kidding.. I like'm all...

Great link you sent too... I had no idea that TT had so many fuselages available....to the OP check out this page of the link above!!!

Now you really have a nice selection to choose from...

any machine should be fine for scale so long as its "scale friendly" for the fuse you have in mind. remember, the machines designed with 3d in mind are built to take a beating in the air. in a fuslege it gets treated like a baby with scale like flying. now if you have a fuse in mind, then the idea is to see what fits best. many folks already have a machine and the fuse they choose isn't usually the best for their machine to fit in. I always believed it should be planned the other way, decide on fuse first, then see what fits best, life is so much easier that way.

^^^No more true words have ever been spoken in the scale world^^^
Great advice, unfortunately few ever follow it. They think they are saving money because they already have a specific machine, but additional cost during the build often far outweighs the savings of using what you already have...
