very nice. This machine looks to be very promising. I hope the canopy is a little more refined in the production version though. I like the over all shape but the bottom of it could be tapered a bit.IMHO

This and the Goblin are my fav upcoming helis at the moment, the S8 and xxtreme are not as appealing to me now.

How much and when?

Here is a few pictures from the IRCHA booth and the Speed Cup event. The machine on the counter is David Penger's winning Diabolo

Very nice design. And the sound it made in the speed cup passes was as if a turbine kicked in ! Very cool.

Life is meaningful flying helis.

Shawn, I must admit... after seeing that Diabolo in action at IRCHA, I'm still wondering if I should try one instead of the 600SE.

In 4 years I have never seen such astounding performance from a heli.

My only concern is parts availability & cost.

Logo 700 / 600 / 500 V-Bar NEO / Blade 180CFX / mCPX BL / Nano / V-Control

It would be heaps better than logo 600SE.

Parts are not a problem.

I already asked for one before it was even launced, I know he has done a small prebatch of 20 that is already taken. I think 1 is for me!

Well fact that they're actually going to be selling them and parts in US is a step forward for sure. I am going to give one a try for sure since I don't have my TDR anymore may as well.

There are many orders now and the production is running around the clock at least the next weeks. We hope that the first kits are available mid of september.
The Diabolo is sold in the US from Helix Hobbies. Preorders are highly recommended (if possible with wished delivery date) that we can plan the production better.

I am really getting excited about this heli!!! I did like the Joker 3 but never bought 1, the diabolo has some really clever ideas.

Is there any need for larger than 105MM tails on this machine even with 750MM blades???

Did you guys try 14S?
