Default Caliber .30 hop-up engine

Hey everyone,

I'm new to the forum so I don't know if anyone has ever asked this before. Does anyone know a good engine
that could be used to tune-up the Caliber .30 and how much it would cost? I've already installed several new
parts into my Caliber .30 (Tailboom, Swashplate, Mixer Arms, Blade grips, etc.) and I must say it performs alot
better than any of my friends' tuned-up .30 Raptors. It's a great heli.

Thanks for the info!

I've got this puppy in mine.... And it rocks! Much more torque than the .32



This is the O.S. Max .37 SZ-H Ring Helicopter Engine.
(Two year limited warranty)

FEATURES: Premium performance for 30-sized machines, from extreme aerobatics to
stable hovering
Same mounting pattern and muffler dimensions as the .32 SX-H, for
easy installation in most 30-size helis
Re-engineered crankshaft reduces vibration resulting in smooth power
across the entire RPM range
20M carburetor with idle needle positioned on same side as main
needle for easier adjustments

INCLUDES: One O.S. Max .37 SZ-H Ring Helicopter Engine, with #8 glow plug,
20M carburetor, instruction manual and sticker sheet

$150 from tower

Check out heliproz and ricks, they have better deals then tower most of the time.

http://www.heliproz.com and http://www.ronlund.com you may have to call there's something called MAP or Minimum Advertised Price enforced by the distributers but they actually charge less when you order it, my 37 cost like 135 I think from Ricks.

I've heard a lot of good things about the Toki .40, but no experience with it myself . . . about $150 (+/-) complete with muffler.
