this is a very cool (and from what I know, rare) T shirt I got out of the USA recently.

It has a photo of a Concept 30 SX on it, and the Japanese writing above it says "Concept"

Having just the best time fooling with these things again after so many years...

Re: Kyosho Concepts...

So I started working on the 30 size Kyosho Jet Ranger fuselage. Fixed up the horz fins, made a replacement vertical fin. Put a nice shirt boom SR mechanics together with a DX length boom.

Using Futaba 148ís and a 6v pack, spektrum receiver. Itís coming along nicely and should be a fun machine.

I have a set of 510 Ripmax carbon blades for it as well.

Machined up a 7mm hex start cone for the heli as well.

Re: Kyosho Concepts...

Today was a great day! I received the NIB Concept 60 kit, as well as the NIB 60 size Jet Ranger fuselage kit. Came with everything as new, plus 2 Kyosho tuned mufflers and accessories. Yeah!

Re: Kyosho Concepts...

This past week I received another three C30ís in a trade with a really nice gentleman from Florida. One is the SRX Iíve been after for a while, complete with all the Zeal upgrades.

I also purchased another SX which was partially built but never finished.

My goal is to get the 30 Jetranger finished up and flying, then clean up the SRX.

Then Iíll take a break as I have a Vario Benzin Acrobat kit I purchased last fall for a turbine conversion, Iíve been wanting to tackle.

I also got a lot of 6 nip carbon SR length booms off eBay - so Iím well stocked for both DX and SR booms for a while now.

Re: Kyosho Concepts...

The Jet Ranger is flying and trimmed out. Itís neat!
I finished rebuilding the SR-X and itís next up to setup and get flying.

My collection so far consists of 7 different Concept 30ís flying and two 60ís.

I think itís an addiction for sure.

Re: Kyosho Concepts...

I managed to get a few tanks through the SR-X on Friday after work. The .37 OS really slurps fuel but with the extended Kyosho tank and a 2 oz hopper its not bad. Very nice heli, responsive. I did a bit of forward flight in my back yard, but will have to wring it out at the club field.

Re: Kyosho Concepts...

Haven’t updated this thread in a while… but I’m still getting used Kyosho helis and parts fairly regularly. It’s grown to where people contact me now from all over seeing if I’d be interested.

One fellow in California just offered me a NIB Concept 30 SX kit, and a NIB Concept SR-X. I said sure, why not!?

I also have been sending parts all over the world. Philippines, Australia, within Canada, the USA, United Kingdom and just this week to Qatar. And one fellow in Turkey.

I’ve got so much now I can help others out with parts.

This has been a lot of fun, and I’ve met some very nice people.
