Great fuselage for HK450GT. My front window was broken, but i could fix it with epox (don't use hot glue!!!). The paint looks great. Perfect fuselage for the price!!!Mine is not well assembled. Horizontal platform leaning at an angle and due to this elevator servo does not fit. Tail servo must be hidden into the fuselage. If not, tail boom does not reach its possition.Very nice and high quality fuselage for ESKY Belt V2. Slightly tail heavy, so you have to make sure tje balance is ok before the very first flight. Need some hot glue and balancing weights for assembling this fuselage.Decisamente un buon prodotto, rapporto qualit/prezzo ok, completo di tutto il necessario peri il montaggio. Consigliato.The fuselage is ok, not more, not less. It is a little wavy in some areas, the paint is steady and well covering. The letters aren`t masked perfect but you can see the little flaws only when you`re pretty near to the fuselage. The windows are easy to cut out and have a good fit into the fuselage. The tail fin is pre-assambled, and here is the biggest flaw: the horizontal fin isn`t glued properly to the vertical one in a 90 degree angle, you can see it`s inclined. The good thing about the fin: it is pretty stable and so the known problem of many Hughes 500 fuselages with a vibrating tail fin should not be too serious. Due to my own experience with scale fuselages for 450 helis, i`ll take some extra magnets and use them for better securing of the front part, trust me, or will fall apart at a not so perfect landing. If you want a good and perfect semi-scale fuselage, this isn`t the right one for you. If you want a nice looking fuselage for better visibility and everydays flying like me, this one is for you.The item is actually very nice. The problem is actually the company. I ordered some large batteries with it and the idiots put them INSIDE the fuselage box and it damaged the rail and mounts. Two weeks into the rma tiday and they still have not completed the evaluation except they acknowledged that our is their fault BUT there are no replacement parts. They don't have the courtesy or business acumen to open a box there and send me the parts that they acknowledge are damaged. In addition the wood frame inside was poorly assembled and is torqued si I had to make different size spears on a 3d printer to make it sit even in the fuselage. Basically I got a lemon. The person who assembled mine did a poor job. NONETHELESS for the price it is worth g acing to fix it myself. My BIG complaint is this is the typical HK company and they HATE providing service. They want to take your money and get out of their face.I put a blade 450 3D into this fuselage. I was expecting clearance issues, but everything fit surprisingly well. I did have to shim up the back mounting block, and I used bigger screws to attach the blocks to the mounting board in the fuse. My tail rotor assembly is the upgraded aluminum set from Blade, and vertical stabilizer fit without having to use the spacers provided. The quality of the fuse is really good, and finished project is impressive, especially with the light kit. I also put extra magnets in the front canopy, and reinforced the mounting blocks with a coat of epoxy. I give high marks to the kit, high quality craftsmanship.Does HK have corrijio fuselaguem this mold?
The tail is 15 mm off-center relative to the fuselage.
It's a shame!
I want to buy another fuselage with another painting, but if you are off center as the first I bought, I will not buy.Mine arrives damaged due to insufficient protection :
The cockpit as the tail wing, was broken.
The paint is ok but the letters aren't (blur) !This was my first scale body. It's sturdy, and looks super nice. Only just the slightest of warp that made a little gap between the detachable front. I made the tail servo fit by moving it all the way forward and rotating it underneath the boom. The tail rod goes kinda diagonal this way but fits and works fine. I also zip tied foam to the tail and rear collective servos to reduce noise, as their casings just rub the body. Also added some foam around the tail boom at the end and between the body and vertical fin. It really wasn't as hard as I thought it would be to install, and looks awesome, both static, and flying. It almost turns a 450 into a 500 size heli with the new height and width. No problems flying either, except that any vibration will be loud through the body, so use foam to pad where necessary.
