They are Eagle EX frames:
Eagle2 TOP frames will NOT work. The Eagle2 top frames are spaced wider apart (from each other) and use TOTALLY linkages & bearing blocks, also the Eagle2 top frames are shorter & it uses a plastic "Boom Holder" (to mount the boom) that is not used on the Freya.

If you look in my gallery, you will see that the Eagle2 frames are very "short" at the back, while the Eagle3 frames are much longer (as the boom slips up & between them) as on the Freya.

On the other hand, the LWR frames are very similar or even the same depending on what version Eagle2 frames you have (the early Eagle 2 LWR frames are totally different to the Freya ones too)

Colin,

Thanks,
I was afraid of that from the begining and bought the set because I needed the lowers to repair my old X-Spec.

It will end up like this one:

Chago,

What batts are they?

Those red boom brace ends are going to cause a disturbance in the Hirobo Blue Bling Force .

Send Ron Lund $57 and have him send you back the white gel coat WC carbon tail boom. After the boom braces, it's the easiest way to take ounces off the AUW of the model out there.

Yep. Dr.Ben is right. The red braces tells us you're one of the rebel Jedis. That means you're against the Hirobo Blue Empire! lol

He had the carbon boom on sale too?

New addition..

I was gonna create another thread for it, but nah! It's just gonna add more bandwidth to the already busy interent traffic on this forum.

Anyways I'm glad to say that my "other" kit finally arrived today and it's in good hands.

Words are worthless without pictures so without further adieu here's my "new kit":



I sure can't wait to go and start building this one, BUT I will hold off for now and first finish my current project. Once my project is all good and working, then my next step is probably get the EP12 conversion for the Eagle 3, but that's still tentative.

I also went ahead and bit-the-bullet and bought the Castle Creations ICE 120 HV in lieu of my CC 85HV.

All thanks to Runryder's electric section classifieds and a member here that sold it to me for a really, really good bargain price. I couldn't have asked for more....thanks!!!

Anyways I shall be updating this thread later on hopefully with a finished and working heli....we'll see how my schedule works out for me.

Signing out!!!!

You just had to make me drool even more Super XSpec is already enough and now an Eagle 3? You gotta be kidding me

Edit: Is this the SSRVII or SSZ-V head?

Thanks Kyle. Sorry if this thread always give you dehydration because of drooling. lol

Much thanks to Dr. Ben, for your advice in acquiring this kit as well as the staff from MRC mainly Mr. Boyce who helped in getting this kit over to me. They indeed live up to Hirobo's company motto which is: "making dreams come true." .

BTW, This kit is the Eagle 3 SWM AOCC 2006 model which have the SSR-VII head assembly. Kyle was right about asking whether it's the SSR-VII or the SSZ-V. The 2008 Eagle 3 SWM AOCC have the SSZ-V head assembly as well as the D3 tail rotor holders and D3 cooling fan. I apologize if the photo of the end box wasn't clear and made it hard to distinguish it.

Any info about the SSR-VII I should know? Any pros and cons on this head assembly?

Whittier. Sometime if I'm lazy to go I just whip my SRB Quark at my back yard or hover/fly my Lepton at a park close to where I live.

It sure would be a pleasure to see both of these machine at once

Edit: Is the box different for the SSZ-V head? Or is it the same?

Nope, is for the servos on steroids, here's your sign... LOL

Yes, he's doing an electric conversion with a scorpion motor and motor mount.
