liran,
From what I have seen over the past year, this is not commercially available.

There is "a rumor or two" that a couple may have been scratch-built. I say rumor, only because I have not personally seen pictures of them. I think it was Chris Quimby who stated, it would be a wee challenge to the individual builder to manufacture the gear box for transferring power to the tail rotor due to the number of degrees from the horizontal being unique.

Since that Hiller UH-12 thread appeared on another website discussing such challenges, I bet that there are a few folks with excellent tallents "pondering building a Hiller 12." I can "smell the epozy burning" even out here in California!

If you need some detail photographs of the Hiller 12D, please PM me, as I have quite a few pictures that I can scan, from when I flew this model in the Army helicopter pilot flight school at Ft. Wolters, Texas.

Cheers,
Grover

Seems like you could just do the tail driveshaft like the real thing - it uses u-joints where it changes angles...

I'd like to see one made, flew a few hundred hours in a Hiller 12E doing ag work years ago

Hiller is still around - that site above is just a company remanufacturing old C models & isn't affiliated with them. There's a bunch of stuff on the website below:

I have a RC helicopter magazine several years old. it has a scratch
built hiller in it. the guy did an excellent job on it. as i recall it even had
pictures of it in flight. i started off my full scale lessons in a hiller 12C.
