Default Caliber 30 Fuselages!?



Are there any Fuselages out there for the Caliber 30 that dont need modification...???
And what fuselages are out there that need only a little modification...???

Thanks

No. And none.

You can fit one of the Funkey/Century Squirrel fuselages, but you have to lower the servo tray on the Caliber. Which means chopping the chassis around.

Do what I did and get an FT Fibreglass fuse. Not the prettiest, but better than the standard one!

Yeah it's a shame, but that's what you get with the radical frame design on the Cali. If you want a scale fuselage and mechanics to fit I always recomend the Century/Funkey fuselages and the Hirobo Shuttle plus or Plus II helicopters. Both are (gulp) cheap to buy, fly well and will fit in any of the 30 size bodys without ANY modifications. Indeed the fuselages were designed around the Hirobo.

I have a full on alloy OS37 powered 3D Caliber and an old ish Shuttle in a Bell 222 Fuse.
