I started with a Concept 30 about 2 or 3 years ago but never got past the hovering stage. I have now moved on with my Raptor 50.

I resurrected an old SR earlier this year, and have been having a ball with it.

I still love my bigger machines, but Concepts are like Shuttles; not the most precise thing you can fly, but hard to beat for simply putzing around and enjoying oneself.

I'll have this one for as long as I can.

I still have a Concept 30dx that I mess around with once in a while. It still flys pretty good after 10 years and several crashes. It sure doesn't perform like my Quick helicopters.

Guys,
I have a friend that is Concept fan and he has decided to get out of the Concept 30s. He has a 30 SRX with Z32 upgrade metal head and another 30 SRX stock.

Anybody interested in these?

Have had aC30 for almost 8 years - started out as a basic 30, upgrded to 32sxh OS, went to upgrade as an SR version, longer blades & tail boom, some metal head parts. Flies just fine with original JR servos, ball bearings added. Just keeps going!

I've flown a Concept 46VR (combination between the nexus and concept design) for one year. It's for sale now (I'm flying a Raptor 50 at the moment).

Yes, I have a DX which gets upgraded when I crash, or parts wear out, or someone gives me the parts for free or dirt cheap!
I also have a VR32. I am buying a used Ergo 60 rigth now for somethimg different.

Beautifull young lady, your daugther? The Jet Ranger is a beauty too! I have one of the H 500 bodies too. I may buy some Concept mechanics off Ebay this winter to put in this H 500. Nothing like bringing a classic like the Concept back from the dead.

Hey Balsabasher, thank you for your complements.................Yes thats one of my creew members.

I love does plastic Kyosho Fuses, they hold up pretty well when you crash.................I hear that great plane discontinue bringuing does fuses to USA but I hear you can still get it from www.ripmax.com UK Kyosho distribuitor or maybe in HK with Cyberheli.

The only thing I hate in my SR-Ts is that the autorotation one way bearing always lock up..............I have done many things and there is no way to fix this problem.

Other thing is that was difficult to get aftermarket upgrades parts for this heli...........Always EXPENSIVE Zeal parts like a $100.oo for a metal swach plate But in the end this is a very good sunday flyer heli.

I has more pictures here:

I just started flying a 30DX that had been sitting for a number of years unflown. I learned hover and forward flight with a Vigor in a day and brought out the concept after that. Fun little helicopter for a beginner like me.
