Default Kustom Kyosho Caliber 30

My second try.

Trimmed the canopy; removed the stupid guppy mouth. Looks better AND improves cooling AND allows better access.

No paint. Just used vinyl decals.

Replace stock skids with Raptor 50-60. Cheap and VERY useful.

Defo looks better than the 'milk jug' and the colours are nice and high viz too.

I went one better and got the FT canopy for mine

It comes as a plain white fibreglass fuz with a decent decal set, which includes all the fins. I'm planning on getting it professionally airbrushed at the end of this years season (hard to fly through the UK winter unless you're brave.... or mad)

IIRC the FT came with upgraded running gear like alloy swash and tuned pipe.
