    kyosho concept HELP!

    Hello,
    I'm new to helis and I was given an old Concept 30 (SE/DX i think).
    Now I know why it was given to me......cause you can't get parts for it!
    anyway I quickly learned that to buy new blades I would need to buy the main rotor grip upgrade. On ebay I found someone selling Nexus 30 grips and in the description they said it would be a good upgrade for a concept 30.
    Now I'm second guessing myself for buying them and just wanted to check to see if I made the right choice. I only gave 16 bucks for em so not all is lost. I just want to find the right grips so i can get the bird running. Thanks for your help!

    I don't think they will fit but give them a try when they get there.

    You will need a set of bearings for those grips, I know the bearings are different.

    They don't make nexus parts either.

    I was going to tell you that isn't a good heli to learn on because you're always trying to scrounge up parts.

    I was afraid of that. The description said that the bearing were installed.
    I just saw the word "FREE" and decided to give it a shot. I'll do what I can with it, if it works so be it. if not, I planned on getting a raptor next year anyway. I would rather get my bumps n bruises on this one if possible. I've been practicing on a sim and now i want to get out and fly one. good times

    well I just spoke with the seller of the nexus grips. He said he has flown alot of concepts and always put nexus grips on them to avoid the limitations of the thinner blades. I feel better now. I might get to fly a heli after all
