Which Titan though? Raptor 50? Mini Titan E325?

Sorry about that, what I have is the Raptor Titan with the hyper 50 engine.

Here's the same ship Barracuda posted (Thunder Tiger MD530), but with a civilian scheme. As he noted, it's an easy fit, and quick build. I had the fuselage installed and flying in about 8 hours. The detail work added alot more time... The nice thing about this fuse is that it goes together fast and easy, and makes a great everyday flyer. If you want, you can take the detail to a much higher level. The only drawback for a really detailed build is that there is no room for a cockpit with the R50 mechanics.

Very nice machine, but can u get it with the tail rotor on the other side.

Ah a purist! I love it.

I think it wouldn't be that hard to flip the tail rotor on a Raptor.

Mine is built on Raptor 50 mechanics....

I flipped the T/R to the correct (left) side of the boom for scale. VERY easy conversion, which I documented in my build thread here: http://www.scalerchelis.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=7624

Mine is an R50 V2, but the fuselage kit is made for the Titan. I had to cut 7/8" off the boom to fit the V2. Actually it will look more scale with the longer Titan boom.

A couple more pics:

NICE! But can you do 3D with a Fuse like that?

Why would you want to?? I have a TRex for 3D...

Seriously, to answer your question, the added weight of the scale fuselage and details makes 3D an unlikely scenario. But, again, that's not what it's for...

it might surprise you to find out that flying a scale heli realistically is another skill and not everyone can do it....

I get a lot more complements from the airplane guys and general specators flying my scale ships in a smooth and controlled manner than the guys that have a lot more skill flying 3d at the edge of out of control.

True... most people look at 3D and just see a totally out of control heli that doesn't look like any real heli they've ever seen. My MD500 gets much more attention than my pod/boom helis.

3D is not easy... trust me, I'm just starting to get comfortable with inverted flight after nearly a year flying. Scale flying is just a different skill, that can be just as challenging to master. Getting the maneuvers down so they're smooth and accurate, even in not so great conditions takes a lot of work.

My favorite compliment is when one of the flyers at the field tells me he did a double take while I was flying, 'cause he looked over and thought it was a full size heli flying.

Hi RodanAZ,

Have read thru your build thread and i'm very impressed with your work! I always enjoyed watching scale r/c helis fly scale and hover in front with all those blinking LED lights! So cool to look at during sundown... Beautiful MD530!
