I was lucky to buy this second hand from a club member . T rex 600esp and Funkey fuselage 50size from a Bell 206.
The heli was flybarred but i am not used to fly this way so changed to fbl with mikado v bar system . Further more Hobbywing 100V3 esc , scorpion 4025-1100 motor , savox servo's . Good stuff .

The heli is ready for a maiden but the weather isn't yet here . So i started with the fuselage , front first . Sanded and filled gaps and put some rivets on it . Kit from Starwood models . Also the first scale details such as cable cutters . To be continued ...

Today i am going to begin with the cockpit , the instrument panel . I am bound to a very tight budget this time so i had to look around for affordable cockpit and found this .Also there is less choice for 30 size heli's .

Nice project guyken, coming along very nicely!

This heli is close to my heart as that is what I flew in in the mid 70s. My tail number was 58-560.
Looking forward to seeing thus baby in the air!
