View Full Version : Any good off-the-shelf fuselages for the CP/Pros?

Since I'm going through all the trouble of scratch building a CPP, I'd like to have a novel fuse for it.
The only problem is that my fabrication skills for such a thing are bad. (I've tried, I just have no skills)
I've seen the airwolf one, but that's just more than I'd care for.
I guess I'm looking for a "custom" painted version of the stock one... but anything different looking would be cool.
(and I've thought about using a 20 Oz soda/pop bottle, but that's just too undignified) :roll: :wink:

I've seen canopies from other micro helis fitted for the CPP that looked pretty cool. I've got 6 painted CP canopies that look like crap. I'm still learning how to paint them and all that. My LHS told me the white w/o stickers are on back order so I have to wait to make some new ones. The best fuses I've seen are Rebuilds. :kiss He does awesome work. Unfortunately I think the cops would know it was me if there was a BnE and the only thing missing was one of his custom fuses LOL. Wouldn't it be cool if e-flite had a tail fuse similar to the CX/CX2 that was CP size? Different design but you could attach one pretty easy. Darth you reading this?

Yeah, the stuff they've done for the CXs are pretty cool. A guy was picking one up at my LHS (the Apache-esque one) Not quite a scale, but still pretty dang neat.
And Rebuild? All I can say is WOW. :shock: That Ranger he did was nothing short of amazing, IMHO. (insert butt-kiss here too! ;) ) Even if I had the skill, I'd almost hate to fly it...
And lastly, even my spray painting skills are just bad. The closest I come to artistic is landscape photog... I know cool when I see it, but I'm pretty much an unartistic/ low talent artist....

On that note. Isnt there someone out there that is good at doing fuses that could say get a dath fuse finish it and sell it? Hell I'd front the money!

I get alot of request for finished products but to be honest, I can barely keep up with producing kits. Whenever I can get some spare time Id like to branch off into some finished products
