How I wish! What I meant was, Hirobo are releasing the model December 27. I haven't gotten one yet but definitely plan to get one when the opportunity comes.

What a great improvement with the shorter head block. That is really the only negative I could find when it came to the Hirobo helis

Great heli but overall I'm not a fan of lower rotor heads racing rat look. I considered converting my D3v2 to the low head but decided I wouldn't like it. There is a definite move these days to lower undercarriage and lower heads.

Having said that I will again say long live the Freya!

Lowering the head block will help overall CoG and as such roll/elev rates. There less effort, less power etc.

I like the lower head block because it looked way too tall in FBL form.

Essentially Hirobo just took out the hole when they made the SSL head. The rotor disc plane remained the same as it was when flybarred. By lowering it they now have put the rotor disc plane where the flybar was previously.

My only concern having it lower was flying my Eagle with a fuse and whether it would be susceptible to boom strike flying the current F3C schedules with fairly aggressive elevator pushes. But so far seems okay.

Setup Recommendation

Hello again everyone, I almost forgot about this post. I have spoken with Mr Kobayashi of Hirobo Main Office and he generously made very tempting offer for me to acquire one of these kits. I plan to setup one as a practice machine for the 2017 FAI F3C World Championships. Don't get me wrong. I am not even remotely intending to place in the competition. I just want to be able to complete the whole P-17 schedule decently. I am choosing a nitro setup for a practice machine for convenience and more reliable 'stick time'. I need to work on my orientation in flying a more 3D style far more dynamic compared to the last P-07 Schedule I last flew in competition. If all works out well, I will eventually get one of the Eagle WC electrics to use for the competition.

My question is, what engine would you recommend? I am thinking OS 1.05. What gearing? What blades? For electronics, I have a Futaba T14SG and R7008SB. I plan to use a CGY750 gyro. Which servos are recommended for cyclic, rudder and throttle?

Please pardon my lack of familiarity because I am recently coming back into the hobby after about a nine year layoff. I've been flying electric T-Rex 500L, 550L and 700X but would like to try a more recent nitro setup. I also have my old flybar SDX SWM and EX2 SWM.

Thanks!

Freya is a good practice machine.

Engine: OS 105HZ-R
Blades: DH-711 F3C, Funtech 720 or Energy Power that alot Japanese pilots using
Servo's: Futaba BLS-273SV or BLS-272SV on cyclic, BLS-276 on tail, engine your choice but should be HV. Maybe BLS-272SV to match cyclics not super critical as no load.

I don't use a voltage regulator and just use a 2S lipo to run everything.

Use the CGY750 governor with either magnet or the back plate sensor which is probably an easier setup.

Gearing, just the stock setup out of the kit. Aim for the 1950rpm HS. Maybe 2000 rpm if you want to push but not needed. Hover should be around 1450 rpm.

There's more in the CGY750 setup and pitch curves than anything else which comes down to personal feel.

Exactly the answers to my question

That gives me enough to chew on for now. I'll ask more questions once I have the stuff. For the 750, maybe I will ask you for some basic settings to use as a starting point. Thanks mate!

Hi,
I had a scheduled flight Manila-Taipei-Kansai and return home today So I ran over to Super RC in Namba and got the stuff I could. So far I got the O.S. 105 HZR, Four Futaba BLS272SV (for cyclic and throttle) and a Futaba BLS276SV for rudder. I didn't bring enough to get the Futaba CGY-750 and the R7008SB so I will save that for when I return on my next trip. I will also hopefully get the Freya kit by then. I also spotted some blades and am posting some pics. Are any of these good?

Thanks!

I'm glad you like it! I will be in touch with you when I start the build within February. Even at work I get reminders about you.

NEW FREYA OP SWM SSL-II

Hallo Gents,
I do not want to hijack the tread just one question in regard to OS. Max 105 HZ - R Gold edition. Is this particular engine offered in S type ( Short Shaft ) ? OS used to make 105 HZ-R type S for Turbulence D3V2 but it is this days long time discontinued.
Guys in Japan , HK or Singapore should know - Please advise.
Regards,
Hirobodude

O.S. 1.05 Gold

I think mine is a standard shaft. I got it from Japan.

The short shaft is no longer available, although you can just modify the crank yourself.
