Looking at the Nexus....

Information about the Nexus

The new "BEST" in .30-size helicopters.

A decade ago, few modelers were willing to give helicopters a try. Then in 1988 Kyosho introduced the Concept 30 - whose revolutionary easy assembly and durability soon made helis a common sight. And now you'll be seeing even more R/C helis at flying fields everywhere. The reason is simple: Nexus.

Compared to the breakthrough Concept, the Kyosho Nexus takes huge leaps forward in hassle-free performance. It's a completely new design - from the repositioned engine for easier starting and maintenance, to the strengthened rotor head (which also improves aerobatics).

Nexus already comes equipped with many top-drawer features, such as autorotation capability, that would require upgrades in other machines. So it's more than "just" a better helicopter...it's also a better bargain.

  • Nexus positions the engine farther forward than most helis, at a slight 15 angle. It's instantly accessible from the top of the model with an electric starter. No special start shafts or adapters are necessary.

  • Not only does the 240cc Nexus fuel tank increase capacity for longer flight times-it's also positioned near the center of gravity where changing fuel levels won't affect flight performance, and is easily visible for monitoring fuel level.

  • Usually an extra-cost accessory, the Nexus includes an adjustable muffler with O-Ring seal.

  • Kyosho engineers increased the mast height and moved the engine, gyro and fuel tank locations closer to the model's center. As a result, the Nexus has a lower center of gravity for optimum flight stability.

  • Taking the engine out for maintenance requires extremely little effort. In the improved Nexus design, the modeler simply removes four screws. No disassembly is necessary.

  • Many fliers eventually add a rotor head button to their models-it's a safe, convenient way to stop the rotor blades from spinning. Of course, the Kyosho Nexus already includes one.

  • For the Nexus, Kyosho used the Concept 30 SR-X's proven tail design but added two more bearings to the tail gear case. The end result: exceptional tail control and stability.

  • Overall, the Nexus heli's rotor head uses stronger, fewer parts for increased durability and lower maintenance.

  • One-piece blade grips, solid axle and 4mm blade bolts are examples.

  • Conversion Kits are available to allow the use of .46-size or O.S. FS-52 Surpass engine
