I always start at eBay and work out from there But Tower stock everything you need. Get a decent charger that will do everything is my advice. I have a Triton II which will charge everyhing in my hanger and in the house too!

Also I should have stated Im new to the gas powered RC area,, Is their a better glow ignitor setup than another? what about fuels, Is their ups and downs to certain fuels to use? would a DX7 RX7000 be a good RX to use for my application

As for GoGo juice. Get a Heli specific fuel only if you can.

And I wouldn't put a parkfly RX in an IC heli. There might be range issues, not that you'll be getting that far away for a while

Hello,
I have a similar question as I have a ccpm Caliber 30 and I don't have the manual for it. Can anyone tell me where to buy or download the manual?

Thanks
