I have heard it said that Kyosho would be doing their own Distribution in the USA shortly. Is there anybody here who has any information about this ?
it would be interesting if they really take care of the business themselves.

towerhobbies is big but is kinda slow on getting the new stuffs

Default V-One RRR

I am looking at picking up a couple RRR kits and spares. Who has the best prices around? I saw that www.rcsquare.com was at $350.00 US.

Would love some input from you guys...


Thanks

Default Kyosho USA

I beleive that Great Planes is handling distribution in North America for Kyosho.

However it seems that at the moment there is a big discrepancy in price compared to the rest of the world market.

Japan is cheapest, then Hong Kong.
US is a lot cheaper than Europe.

3517 = 3 turns and 1.7 pressure.
1st number is the the # of turns, 2nd number is actually the diameter of the wire that makes the spring (i.e., bigger diameter and less turn is stiffer than smaller diameter and more turn).

So 3517 = 3.5 turn of 1.7mm wire.

Unfortunately it does not give you the lb/in.

The first number is the number of active coils(full coils) and the second number is the outer diameter of the wire(in certain cases this is after the paint has been sprayed on the pastel colored springs).

I remember reading some kind of formula to calculate the spring weight. Something like (number of active coils) x (inner diameter of wire)(outer diameter of wire).

All I do is decide if I want to go harder or softer, then place two different springs end to end then squash them to check the pressures.
