You can replace a lot of part on the caliber 30, raptor 30 parts are half prize compare to Kyosho genuine parts!
|Swashplate ||If your swashplate develop slope or break after a crash, do not buy a new plastic one from Kyosho....CA3036 Upper Swash + CA3037 Lower Swashplate + CA3038 Swash Inner Race = $32 you can buy an aftermarket metal for $60 (quick Uk) |
Alternatively you can reduce slope in the plastic swashplate if you use new screws with big heads and the old swashplate will have smaller slop.

|Flybar ||You can use Raptor 30 flybar, there are 60mm smaller but for $5.25 you get 2 set (PV008) instead of one CA3009 for 4.25 |
Smaller flybar will improve response and agressivity of heli. Use heavier paddle if you are still a beginner.
