KALT Scale Bodies

In addition to scale machines with dedicated mechanics Kalt also produced a range of Scale and Sport helicopter 'hang on' bodies, as they were generally called at the time.  Kalt had always provided the modeller with many options and so the modeller could buy the basic pod and boom model then once proficient buy the scale body to go with it.  In the UK a very active model shop with a number of proficient helicopter flyers became the UK importer of Kalt helicopters they also went on to produce a number of high quality fuselage kits to compliment the Kalt range; as such Slough Models has been considered in their own right under the UK section.

Kalt already had a model of the JetRanger with its own dedicated mechanics however, it was also decided to bring this model out as the first of Kalt's scale 'hang-on' scale bodies.  The internal layout was redesigned specifically to take the 50 Baron mechanics with either the standard 50 size engine or a larger 60 size for more 'sporty' performance.

By this time the JetRanger had proved so popular that it was available in three formats; Aerobatic, Custom and Flybarless Super Scale.

Kalt Bell 400 TwinRanger (1987)

  Applicability - 50 Baron S/EC - 60 Baron S/EC - 60 Baron Alpha/EX (conversion required).

The TwinRanger (full size) was supposed to replace the JetRanger but never did; shame really as it is a very nice and unique looking helicopter (50-60 size mechanics).

 

Bought from Dave Payne and at the moment the only flying version in the UK.

 Only had a few flights with this one so far and then only gentle figure of eights; first impressions are it is very soft and 'scale' like on all controls, no throwing this one around and given its unique nature who would want to....!!!!!
