Not sure if he's actually sponsored or not yet, but what about Mr. Sluggo himself? Have you seen the guy fly? Definitely puts that X-Spec through the paces

I think if your heli fell apart in flight might have had something to do with building or your dampners or links wearing out. In any case the heli is made solid and mechanically sound. I should know cuz this is my field of interest.

I fly my hirobo very hard and I always check for wear and tear and loose screws. any helicopter can fall apart if you neglect it. This year you will probably see more x-specs kick butt. Come to san diego funfly for starters.

I am with the other guys, If your Freya boom struck then there must have been something wrong. Dampeners wore out, bad link that needed to be replaced etc. Out of every boom strike I have seen there was always a cause, Pilot over controlled the heli, or a mechanical failure from lack of maintenance.

I have beaten my X-spec hard to see if I could blow it up and it passed with flying colours. The Freya is a sweet ride and is like any other heli, it needs to be well looked after in order for it to work right.

Kinger thanks for the kinds words!!!

Perhaps, because Hirobo has long ago laid a great foundation of good quality helicopters. Its quality has propelled them to be popular for quite a long time and therefore the need for a great rep is no longer a necessity to promote their product.

Ray Dog and Augusto.....
Thanks for making me feel so welcome in San Diego, I really enjoyed flying with you both and was very impressed.

By the way...... I witnessed some of that "Testing" , and I'll tell everyone here that Augusto wasn't messing around! The results of one of the softer sets was a little sad for the heli, but really cool to watch! They're definitely being put through the "extreme" wringer! I still need some 80's, put me on the list.

thanks heartbreaker,

I was fun having you down in san diego. Hope to see you again. Auguso, it seems that we need to do our testing at area 51. There seems to be some leakage in our security and information is being posted for the public to see. He he. Just kidding.

FAI is the world governing body, F3C is the class for helicopter aerobatics.

Sponsorship is used to promote a product with a view to having the brand name and success recognised. TT had to sponsor heavily because it was starting from scratch - no track record or recognition of success. Hirobo was and still is the leader in this game with it's history of quality and success. Current European and World Champions, what more does a prospective customer need?

Thanks Augusto and Ray for the news on the CX dampners. Looking forward to trying a set out. Do they pretty much perform on the Evo like they do on the Freya? Will I have to start watching my headspeed at the bottom of autos to stay away from the wobbles?

I like the stock dampners for feel, but it does appear that they don't last very long.
