A couple of months ago, I picked this Graupner AS350 fuse up from a local seller. Once purchased, I realized the this build would far exceed my skill level -> As the mechanics have been discontinued and a plethora of scale details would have to be added to the fuse. Well, here goes.

I have decided to use a stretched Rex 600 with the RCA lowered tail mechanics. Not a direct drop in install but I can make it work. (crash video soon to come)

Keep The Pic's Coming!!
I think you will be surprised at how much fun one can have, adding those details...
Just take your time with each one...
Looks as if you have the mechanics covered, and they should make a solid platform...
Don't be afraid to ask questions...

And remember to HAVE FUN!!!!

You have to call and order the part as it isnt listed on the site. Make certain that you speak to Cliff or leave him a message. It was $99 plus shipping. You have to migrate parts from you ESP frame to this unit (i.e. main bearing blocks, tail boom holder, motor, etc)

Here is a side by side pic with the stock ESP frame. (Disregard the shoddy cutouts on the form)
