Since I live out in the boonies , I would like to know how I can get my hands on a Tsuguri XX, and how much it costs (just the kit). I tried searching the net, but I could not find any prices.

Thanks

Jamovich

It is an old model from Hirobo.
Sceadu and Freya are in cool stuff now.

Occasionally a Tsurugi will pop up on the used boards but keep in mind that it is a discontinued model. As your in the sticks, you'd probably be better off with the current Freya design as parts are readily available.

If the Freya wasn't such a good heli I'd be more sad of the Tsurugis demise. It was my first .60 ship and I loved it. I still have the manual and flip through it every once in while.

Discontinued?

The hirobo site (as badly designed as it is) does not list it as discontinued.

I was actually looking ahead

Im already thoroughly hooked to the hobby..it would take hell to freeze over to discourage me =P

The clutch drum, and clutch shoe are misaligned, because a tough torqmaster. This damaged the upper side of the clutch drum causing it to stick with the engine turnover. The shaft might also be slightly misaligned. The teeth on the main gear have also stripped without explaination - I had no rough landings with the heli. I firmly believe in you get what you pay for. I was especially miffed at the crap plastic inserts Kyosho used to keep the heli together..if I had flown it too much longer it would have shook itself to pieces sooner or later. Anyway I am grounded for the next 20 odd days while the replacement parts come (which include some upgrades for shoddy components...Over $270...u add that price to a full nexus kit and u have almost a freya!!)

The engine is damn hard to tune unless you use a test stand...in fact I am going to stick to this until the engine is fully broken in in the future. It is no fun tuning an engine that has to be stopped and restarted every time!!! (Damn rotor blades get in the way!) I also think my whole problem with the engine was due to castor oil residue...I think I have found a source of de-gummed oil. That should fix the problem.

I already know more or less how to hover...plus, I don't want to order a cheap heli simply because I have to pay 50% tax on it (the boonies I tell you!)..Id rather pay the premium on something worth it (I hate buying upgrades! You eventually pay the price of a much better 800 dollar plus heli!), and stick to that come what may...

I also don't plan to fly the new machine until I can fly without the training gear, and I have 4 sets of spare parts for the nexus (have'nt used any of that yet!).. I just cannot wait for a few months then order the next heli cause of specific reasons.

I was interested in the Tsuguri because I thought was not discontinued - a fact that the hirobo site fails to mention.

I guess the closest available is the Freya X-spec.

Sorry for the long rant!

I bought the two from montclair

hi jamovich,

I bought the two Tsuguri's that Pegusus had, I was going to use them for a scale project, but if you deside you still want that particular kit, i'll sell them to you for what I paid .

I agree with everyone else's opinion about the Freya's being a better choice for you, I have a standard and an X-spec, and love them both, but these are here and new if you deside to go that way

regards, Scott Reed
