    Inherited toy

    I just got this beast from a friend that bought it ten years ago, had itchased him a 15ft or so, and then he put it in the attic. Obviously it needs a little work and updating. However, I have no idea what it is other than Kyosho is written all over it. Don't know the size motor, model, etc. Don't even know where to look. All I've flown is an mSR and CPPro2, so I have no nitro experience and no flight time of anything remotely close to this size. I have a Blade 400 (shown for size comparison) that should be completed and haveit's maiden flight soon. However, it's as long as just the tail boom on thenitro.So this is my first nitro chopper and for my life expectancy's sake, any help on any of the above will be mucho appreciated. This thing is big and scary, which means I love it.Well, minus theold graphics on the canopy.

    RE: Inherited toy

    It's a Nexus 30, if I were you I'd stick it on a shelf. It's been discontinued and parts are very hard to come by if you break something.

    That one looks like the flapping head design, fairly smooth but if you did anything wild it would chop off the tail boom (been there done that)

    RE: Inherited toy

    So basically I have a really big paper weight? The feathering shaft is pretty bent (thus the one blade hanging a little low).

    RE: Inherited toy

    Great heli!!
    If you expect a 3D flight, don't even thik aout it, but if you want a stable nice flight and some simple aerobatic manuvers, it is ok. I don´t think it deserves an upgrade but a .50 is better than the .32, spares are expensive and rare and all screws got be cheked constantly.
    good luck!

    RE: Inherited toy

    No 3d with the nitro. I have the little electrics for whenever I get the chops to try 3d. I just would like to fly it around a bit. Maybe through a body on it.

    RE: Inherited toy

    Right now I just need a feathering shaft, tail fin,and then figure out how to hook up a SpektrumRX to it.How do you charge the batteries on it? Or do I need to replace those as well?I also need a little tutoring on starting this thing. I'm guessing I can just use nitro fuel from theLHS.

    RE: Inherited toy

    This Heli Going by the Photo's Look's like it has the Flapping Head Design
    Meaning the Feathering Shafts allow the Blade Grips to float up and Down
    I can send you a Tail Fin if you want one from me let me Know

    RE: Inherited toy

    I pulled the feathering shaft. I have no idea what the flapping head design is and what all it was used on but this Nexus has a feather rod that is shared by the two main blades. One side is bent pretty heavily. I'm guessing that something dropped on it while in my buddy's attic. My least concern is the tail fin. I need the feathering shaft and I need to figure out what battery I need to use on it.

    How do you start these things?

    RE: Inherited toy

    I can Take a Look to see what I have here
    I probably Have the Largest Collection of Parts for these Heli's New & Used, on the Planet, along with three Working Heli's
    as Far as the Battery goes you can use any Flight Pack that's Used for other Nitro Heli's
    You Want one with a 7.4 Volt Rating and at least a 2200 Mili amp Hour
    Like Made by JR or Spectrum or thunder Power
    it will Say Receiver Flight Pac Battery on what ever Site you go on
    I will Post a Link here for you right Now

    http://www.helidirect.com/align-2s1p...01-p-17107.hdx

    Copy and Paste this Link into your Browser and it'll take you to the Battery
    Do you have a Working Rx that you can install in the Heli ?

    as for Starting the Heli you will Need a Electric Helicopter Starter

    Here's a Link to that

    http://www.helidirect.com/align-blac...06-p-14152.hdx <<(copy and paste into your Browser)

    I have Chosen one that already Has the Battery Pac for you here in this Link
    You can get one cheaper if you have a 12 volt car or lawn mower battery to run the starter
    it should turn counter clockwise when trying to start the Heli

    Next you will need a Glow Plug Driver
    Here's the Link to that with a Fuel Pump that you also need to fill the fuel tank

    http://www.helidirect.com/dubro-fill...ete-p-6311.hdx

    Next I need to turn your attention to a Mistake I made in the Past
    During set up of your Radio make sure that you have the Throttle servo turning in the right direction
    Meaning that Low Throttle on the Transmitter = low throttle on the Helicopter
    I had a heli some years ago that I tried to start one time and the Throttle was wide open at Low Stick on the Tx.
    Meaning it started at full throttle and not only Scared the Pi$$ out of me, but it instantly burned up the Clutch before I figured out to pull the Fuel line off the Carb to kill the engine,luckily the Motor didn't blow up in my face
    SO IT'S VERY IMPORTANT NOT TO DO THIS EVER

    Lastly you can go You Tube to see Video's on how to start a Nitro Helicopter
    They are there, I have watched them myself

    RE: Inherited toy

    Yeah, I learned the hard way with the electric. I flew my CPP2 into my dresser @ WOT. I didn't realize I was going to need all this. It'll be a bit before I start sinking that kind of cash into the freebee.

    RE: Inherited toy

    Heli's are Not Cheap Ever
    this is what I have Learned over the Years
    your Talking to someone that Has Laid out over $25,000.00 in Seven on over 38 Heli's, Parts, and all the other things that Make them Work
    I work all kinds of Side Jobs to buy my Toys and support Equipment Etc.
    I Fought like Hell on Flea Bay to get Most of my Nexus Parts and came across a Few People that Had surplus Parts and Scooped as much up as I could
    Check out my Gallery here if you Want to see some of my Heli's

    The Easiest thing to do is to Buy One thing at a Time, if your on a Budget and you'll get it all together sooner or Later
    or you Can Look here on the For Sale Ad's that people are selling the Starting Equipment you Need "Cheap"
    I have found Many things here for Heli's
    Stay away from Run Ryder as those Guys are All ***** heads to New Bee's... and will insult the Pi$$ out of you Just for Having a Nexus
    I am a Member there (user Name) " Big Daddies Heli's" only to Pi$$ People off, when they see all my Helicopters in my Gallery, and it's Quite Comical some times when they Talk ***** to me, and I give it right Back to them 10 FOLD.....
    Most of them are all full of them selves
    Look me up down the Road here and I'll try to Help you out where ever I can OK

    Later
    Rich D.....
