I did my first forward flying back at home in the summer. I recall the first time, I was so scared! But it worked out.

The guys today with the perfect servos, insane heading lock gyros, flyboard less set ups will never know the feeling of flying one of these lol.

Sloppy slow standard servos, mechanical gyro, basic transmitters without all the bells and whistles... you were always flying. Man I sound like an old man.

Re: Kyosho Concepts...

Hey, at least you had a gyro. I had nothing but a transmitter that could, wait for it....................reverse servo direction on the transmitter. Any other features it had were only for planks as I recently found out. Sigh........

Yup. I had the cheapest Airtronics gyro with no bearings and no gain. It held the tail kind of, lol. Well sort of. It was sloppy due to the cheap servo and sloppy linkages.

I started flying helis with a basic aircraft radio that had two mixes. I figured how to rig up throttle with collective well enough to fly. But within a year I bought a new radio that had basic heli programming as well.

My first airplane radio didnít even have reversing though. Old futaba tan box Udisco branded.

I started with 1 servo for throttle and pitch coupled on my shuttle and when the concept came out, it had 2 pcs feathering spindle, on futaba 148's servo.
we flew just fine.

Re: Kyosho Concepts...

Update on the Concept quest...

I started to work on the SE, its very clean but Iím going to change a few bearings and screws that are a bit corroded. I will re-build and make sure everything is good to go (it looks very nice so it will be more just cleaning, and reassembly). Got the .32F unstuck and it also looks good. This one will be flown first I think.

I received (finally!) the brand new DX ARF from the fellow in New Jersey today. It was held up for some reason in customs for a week but its here. And it looks so nice! It also came with updated grips from an SX (thicker blade capability and metal balls) and SX paddles to replace the aluminum DX ones. And a brand new OS .28 installed, never ran. And its still nice and free.

This is fun, lol. Fun stuff indeed. I am still looking for an SX. Found a guy with no less than three in the USA but Iím not sure he wants to sell yet.

Re: Kyosho Concepts...

The progression was:

Originally: 30DX, 30SE (plastic paddles and more bearings) then 30SX (mainly metal balls on the links plus more throw on collective and everything on bearings)

Then the 30 SR came out (dropped the SE and SX) with stretched boom and blades.

Then all was discontinued and there was the SR-T (trainer with mostly plastic) and SR-X (bearings and metal balls).

Then that was discontinued and the 32/46 VR was the last machine. Could use either the 32 or 46 OS engines with done different gearing.

The SR-X was a later iteration of the SR. The SX was the original DX with all metal balls, some aluminum parts replacing plastic, different paddles, all bearings and the sleeker canopy. The SR was basically the SX with a stretched boom and different decals.

The later versions allowed more pitch negative to improve rolls and autos and allow inverted climb outs.

Re: Kyosho Concepts...

So I have already gotten myself a few machines - along with the used SE I am currently rebuilding (which will fly first) and the new DX machine, the NIB 32VR - I just received a Nexus DF kit brand new in the box from a fellow in England.

The more you look around the more you find parts and machines all over.
