The weight of my wolf is 266g. This includes the retracts, retract servo and
mount, navigation and landing lights, and the electronic switch to turn the
landing lights on and off. So, Wolf 266g + 230s 339g = 605g + battery weight.
I got my wolf through Ali Express.com. Search "Helicopter scale fuselage".
This brings up a list of fuselage of different types and sizes 250-700.
Currently a 250airwolf is $108.50 USD.
Hope this helps.

3D printed frame! At long last, a way forward.

So many of your larger kits have been based on obsolete frames that are impossible to find thus precluding the ability to actually build them.

I stopped looking at your website since it was impossible to proceed. If this problem has been overcome Lupus it opens the door to some of your kits at last.

In fact I just bought a 3D printer so that may solve the problem.

@naga: That's not necessary. We offer these frames with the models. They are narrow and suitable for different sizes of main gears from 40 to 70 mm. These frames are available for the Blade 200S / SRX and 230S / 250CFX. And also for parts of Walkera.
The conversion is easy. There is a construction manual with pictures.

That's an amazing piece of work and it flies really well. A superb project. Actually a NOTAR helicopter for the sport flyer is a really good option ans the components are naturally well protected. Perhaps Blade should take note.

Man....! I want!

Wish there was a way to compile the various fuselages and what "donor" one would need?

Surprised to see the Align 500 body on the 230S?!

My 230S was bought solely for the purpose of scale flying. It just needs the body!

Picked up (well, paid for and will get it next week) fuselage for my 230S today. A Microheli full fuse kit, with landing gear and all.

Been eyeballing their fuselage kits and they’re not terribly priced. But this one was a discontinued kit.

Pics coming as soon as it gets here and installed.

Honestly, I wanted a realistic true to life looking scale body, (Huey or Cobra or Bell 222) but... got a great deal on this, brand new, and it IS beautiful!
