As far as I know any 30-39 size heli motor will fit. I also had one of the old F motors in an old Concept of mine and upgraded to an OS32SXH. But the TT39 is also a good motor.

That heli has short blades and was designed around the OS 28 heli motor, I wouldn't go much bigger than an os 32sx which can be had way cheap now that the 37 is out.

Ricks has them brand new for 99 while they last. http://www.ronlund.com

I have a DX it was one of the first to come in the USA got it when I had a hobby shop in the 80's I still have the org Enya 35 in mine has 100's and 100's of flights on it still going strong for an old heli. I'm running the white foam plastic blades that came with it have a few spare blades just in case. Flys good with plastic paddles and dead smooth with the metal ones also. If your breaking rings I would think there's something wrong with the engine or you may be stretching the ring too much to put it on and cracking it with out knowing it

I have just traded for a Concept 30 DX SE. It was pruchased in Nov '98, is fully assembled but has never had an engine or radio equipment installed. It is old but brand new. It has been stored uncovered so has some rust on the linkages and servo control rods. I have sprayed CRC 56 on those places and everything moves freely now. I am an intermediate airplane pilot and am wondering if this a good heli to start with?

Yes and no.

It was a nice heli in its day but the problem with them now is finding a reliable source of parts if you crash it. Some people still have them but its hit and miss.

You will need to do one thing as a plank pilot, and that is to resist the urge to flare when you land, the tail rotor won't take kindly to that.

Thanks for the advice. I traded an old 40 size trainer airplane for it so don't have much in it.

The advise I normally give to fixed wing pilots taking up helicopters is either get on a buddy lead with an experienced heli pilot or get a simulator and re-train your thumbs that way

The concept range of helicopters are great flying machines and with the flapping head setup they are very forgiving to fly. I learnt on a DX many moons ago.

I suddenly find myself trying to learn everything I can about these machines. Thinking of buying one rtf on ebay and am looking forward to the new challenge. Thanks everyone, Bob Gentz

As the weather gets colder remember that an electrical helicopter for indoor flying is not a bad idea. Good luck with your flying, Jeff.

Hence the reason we'll be spending christmas and the new year with friends in kissimmee as usual!

Here's a pic over my back yard last December..... Very seasonal BBrrrrrr. That's the begining of Sherwood forest at the left. It's also where I fly my Viper 70 and assorted planes.

You are more than welcome in Jacksonville for a day, we are about a 2 1/2 hour drive from Kissimee.
