Hello forum, I have a Blade 500 x that I would like to make into a scale model. My son just got out of the Army and I want to give it to him to spark an interest in the hobby. I have limited build skills , just fly them. So I'm looking for a simple fuselage with minimal modifications. I'm not so concerned with detail just looking for simplicity . Here's some specification I got off the Blade website. Main rotor diameter 970mm, tail rotor diameter 198mm, length 850mm, main gear ratio 9.6:1, tail ratio 1:4:66. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

It is generally best to learn to fly on a simulator and pod and boom (like a Blade 500) before flying a scale heli.

Crashing (which is almost certain if he is a newbie) could be VERY demotivating if it wrecks a nice scale fuselage.
