Default where do I get a Caliber 90

Hi,

Does anyone know where I could get a caliber 90. I am living in South Africa and would need to be able to ship it here.

Also, if anyone knows any shops in England that sell the 90 that would be great.

Thanks,
Ross

Isn't the 90 discontinued now?

Midland Helicopters can still get the 60 though.........

Thanks for the info CyberFyn

I don't think the 90's been discontinued, on the kyosho web page they have a new 2006 version.

I did find a link for a site called cyberheli.com...The caliber 90 goes for $2300!!!
Even the 60 is expensive!

Do you know why these kits are so expensive against a Raptor 90SE? They dont come with anything but the kit..

I think they are generally used by competition pilots hence the high price. For that money I'd get a 3DNT or X-Cell Fury Graphite myself.

Saying that I love my OS37 powered Caliber 30!

ps I've bought loads off Cyberheli & can reccomend them no problem.

I have to agree about the cali 30!!! have not had one problem with it.

Do you know where I could get a X-Cell in England? Can't really find many online stores.

Also,this might be stupid, but what is a 3DNT??

Sorry, should have said an x-cell for around the £600/£650 mark. Thats the price I can get a 90SE for.
It will have to be a 90 size.

Do you know how much any Carbon Extreme helis are??

Thanks again,
Ross

The Synergy is around 900 us so the Arora will probably be close to that. For the Avant you need to start with a Hirobo EVO 90 then get the Carbon Extreme upgrade kit which another 500 and if you want the programmable head 300 more on top of that.

I think the best thing to do is stick with a Raptor 90SE, what are your guys opinions??

You can't go far wrong with the Rappy 90.

The 3DNT is made by Henseleit . One of the sexiest and most capable heli's on the market (and one I aspire to eventually)
