I have belt and shaft drives on my Hirobo machines, no difference in performance.
I use shaft drives in my scale helis, makes assembly easier and no need to get in a tight place to adjust the belt.
I have hundreds of flights with belt drives and never have had a problem.

I've chewed on it for a while and I may try going with a shaft drive. I realize that requires more parts but using one would be very straightforward I'm guessing. In the past all my other helis used a belt but would love to give it a shot. I also have more parts on the way and will give some updates with pics. I appreciate all the good feedback on my question from you guys. I'll have some more good stuff posted in about a week!

If you go pipe drive, JLF92677 has a very valid concern for you; the difficulty of locating the front gear assembly 0414-155 to run a driven tail (second gear).

FYI - I've flown belt driven Hirobos for 20 years and have never had a reliability issue, and I've never had to adjust tension on the belt. I suppose flying in SoCal we don't have the big temperature swings.

Despite the dilemma of what to chose, you're still in a good place.....your building a HIROBO!!

Hey thanks for the heads up. The part I was looking for is actually 0404-644, an older part which I've located. The part you speak of though I've located as well, that part would work with the DTDS version, that would not work with the frame I'm using as it only has one main gear and then the gear that drives either a belt or shaft. Thanks anyways I appreciate it!

Plus I bet there is a way to use a Freya version if need be. The ex box was awesome but really heavy. The 644 worked for years too. That entire dtds setup carried into all the Helis eventually with the parts dimensions after that ex box

Still no problems, only solutions, governed by MARSHALL AMPLIFICATION. I'm a HIROBO Fan, R U?

Yeah I thought about that as well, building this thing has been a total blast. It's taken me a while but well worth it. I just love the older retro look of it. Helis these days just appear to be over the top. Less is more

I'm a fan of the lower landing gear and Freya style cabin. Fast looking. I'm glad to be back flying Hirobo. They just did thing right for longevity.

Yeah just from what I've noticed is everything is so well made, meant to last and not wear out. Years ago I had an older trex 450 v2, that thing was nothing but junk and gave me problems. I'd imagine their stuff is better now but Align left a bad taste in my mouth. Hirobo has been around for so long, it amazes me how well thought out their stuff is and how many parts can be interchanged with what you want to do. Just good stuff!

I pulled off the green decals on the bottom, couldn't get them to stay down, and put on the taller struts for now, grass is tall out here so I'll use them for now. I'll do a few more things to spruce up the canopy. My new parts should arrive any day and will do an update on the frame with all the new levers installed

Thanks, yeah I flipped the gyro plate around facing outwards, I might try mounting the gyro outside providing there's enough clearance under the boom. Everything should operate very smooth with the linkages and all these bearings.. She's a beauty

Guys, was wondering if the 0414-535 E3 clutch would work of with the eagle if I'm to convert to electric or would it be best to use the original clutch that's intended for this model, thanks

Herman,

IMO I don't think 0414-535 clutch would work well for your model. This clutch is intended for driven tail model which requires a second gear, which your model cannot accept because of lack of frames clearance for the second gear. The correct clutch is 0404-615 which in combination with 0404-617 AUTO-ROT.TORQUE LIMITER you can have a limited slip driven tail. If you cannot locate either I have one handy.

Best of luck with you build.

Jerman,

Perhaps you might be interest in the following method of mounting your receiver, gyro amp and gyro sensor, which leaves the forward plate open for battery mounting. The attached pics are from an Eagle 97WC which uses the same frame layout than yours, just CF instead of Al frames but same layout. I used the same 0404-745 gyro mount plate that comes with the WC kit to mount recv and gyro amp. All you need to do is drill holes in the front of the upper frames to install the plate. I also like this better for the gyro sensor because is further away from the engine exhaust to keep exhaust oil away from it. Just a suggestion.

Worked some today on setting up the linkages, should be dialed in really nicely once in the air with minor adjustments

Hey guys, I noticed hirobo later released the longer boom 0414-577, my question is would that work well with my setup. I assume you would have to use a belt with this longer boom and that a shaft wouldn't work but would allow for longer blades if I'm correct.
