I have a Concept 30, new and unbuilt in the box yet... I pulled the box out yesterday and looked at the blades and boom. Man this thing looks big after getting used to the TRex450!

ErichF.
That Cal90 looks just fantastic, what is the price of something like that?
I have a Cal 3 and a Cal 30 awaitng the totalling of the 3.
When I can say I have learned to fly helis I really would like a Cal 90.
Actually I have sworn never to buy Kyosho again, but looking at your pics have tempted me. That black and gold looks just awesome, and the mechanics too.

Thanks Finn,

The C90 is the flagship Kyosho bird, one of the top three competition machines in the world. They can be had for around $2600USD, but you can get lucky like me and locate a kit from a private individual. I got mine NIB from a guy here in FL for $2000. Some Japanese shops may also have good deals on one.

There isn't really anything you need to do to the machine, as there are no upgrades. If you're interested, I have a Caliber 90 Build thread over on Runryder's Kyosho forum with all the pics.

Cheers,

Wow that C90 has about the most awesome looking tail pitch slider mechanism I have ever seen on a model... Something looks wierd on the head though, the way the linkages are so angled is strange...

Looks like possibly a great heli for an e-conversion with the belt drive setup is has.

-Fog

I'll post pics of my C30 tonight. I'm now more inspired to tear out the OS32 and figure out why it runs so lean. I'm pretty sure it's got a bad seal in the carb somewhere.

Anyone have a good idea for an alternate canopy? I hate the bulbous old school original one I have... Maybe a trex 500 canopy will fit

Whoaaaa!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Thats a lot of money for a poor welder.
Maybe I in time could get an older one and fit the 06 kits on it, and a spare tail kit.
Maybe............................................. ...............................
First of all I must learn to master what I have.
Then again, something that impressive looking... oh man.

Default Old Helo body, new modern electronics :)

OK here are some of the concept 30 dx I am resurecting. I refreshed the OS32 with piston/sleve/o-rings. I had a set of JR DS821's lying around, as well as a 401 / 9254 from my trex 600 that got booted off and replaced with a 611 Got some nice looking NHP 515 carbon mains, some raptor white paddles, raptor header tank, raptor tail blades. Went with the align voltag regulator and lipo, but I'll need a bigger battery as it's way too tail heavy right now...

I need ideas for a canopy, the original looks lame and is in bad shape anyway. I have a rex 600 that actually fits but loks funny, too big. Also I need a better tail slider if there is a better one available. This one has no pivot points on the slider, the links just screw right to it and it just flexes, kind of like the original trex450 X tail slider.

Any ideas for upgrades please let me know



















Later,

-Chris
