I wanted to get some opinions on what companies you guys would recommend for scale fuses. I have done a couple of Century fuses but it appears that these are no longer available. Is that correct? Thanks

depends what you really want...
a scale build (that can drag for years and one gets lost indetails) or
a quick fix (ARF that you just need to assemble and go fly)

it also depends on the subject you want and the size you're after...

Now quick fix stuff is not bad... you see the results of your efforts fast... but the builds are what you're really proud of and although you do fly them... you simply do not take silly risks...

Yes as Emile said,all the Century fuselages that we’re made by FunKey are still available through Leisure-Tech in Canada. Just e-mail me at orders@leisuretech.ca

We also have the Rotor Tech and FunKey sport (silver/grey) and scale blades for multi blade heads.

PKM- Phuket Hobby Models is an up and coming scale fuselage manufacturer based in Thailand.
I am going to buy a 700 size D model Huey from them. It is based on Align 700 mechs but from the pics they sent me it seems like most
Mechs will be usable.
The fuse is $439 plus shipping.
Several folks have purchased fuses from them such as a 500 size D model huey ($139) and a 500 size H34.
They have a Facebook page.

Just want to add that PKM apparently has the backing of the Hajime factory which is involved with Roban. They post support on the PKM Facebook page.
