A Facebook post by Hirobo today from the 2017 Shizuoka hobby show. Hirobo had earlier said new models would be announced.

Here is a picture from today's post with what looks to be a new electric helicopter.

Okay, finally some photos.

Yay.

So far, I like what I see.

Direct servo to swash linkages.

Helical gears.

Yes its technology.

Flybarless head, yes it looks like its been recycled from an SDX, but at least somethings been done.

I like what I see. I also quite like the parts recycling as it ensures parts availability for older models and some cross compatibility.

The big question is, where's the canopy? I'd like a small version of the Turbulence canopy perhaps. I'd also prefer it white with decals.

I wonder if its a prototype, why I think its a prototype.

The ESC to battery connection path looks a bit long.

The link rods from the swash to pitch arms look a bit thin.

In regards to the SDX plastic FBL head, I have an SDX with the stock plastic fly barred head that I converted to FBL by taking out the flybar. Its worked prefect. One of the things I did was to put in thicker link rods.

What would be nice, as well as a canopy, a tail boom cover, and also an option to stick in a nitro engine or a GT15HZ.

If its still a prototype, pending structural frame engineering etc, I would maybe remove that angled front part that the ESC sits on, make it flat, and lower the ESC closer to the battery tray.
