    kyosho caliber 30

    Hey all,Just picked up a just test flown only old kyosho caliber 30 with a mds 38 engine,it is like brand new..ive heard that mds are not very good engines.i previously had a rapter 30 and the engine tt pro 39 was faultless.just wondering the mds 38 shaft does not have a thread on it.the fan is a push fit and held on with 2 allen bolts.i want to install a tt39 but the shaft is different.any ideas.thanks in advance.

    I'd think the MDS38 would be far better than the TT motor ..

    Are you sure there's no thread on the motor shaft ? there should be!!

    Hi David,

    If the heli is 'like brand new' like you say, i would just fly it as is.
    If you havent had any issues with the engine so far, i wouldnt bother changing it out until you start having dramas with it.

    90% of engine failures dont just happen without warning - the engine will show signs like becoming noisy, getting hard to start, having rough idle etc.

    Just fly the thing and enjoy it!
