I have a friend who is selling a Hirobo Dauphin for someone who never flown it and actually never got into the hobby after all this spending.
It is the yellow version and was only tested four flights(I was present at one of these). This was about two years ago. The set-up:
OS 60 WC, with upgraded delrin main gear, 9252 on metal swash, 401/9253 on tail, and retracts installed and working.
The head is the standard two blades, and of course if I go ahead with this project I will want to upgrade to the four blades one...
1-Now what is the story on this four blades head? Some are saying that they are very hard to fly and are unstable,...(I currently fly a Freya .90 and can do some mild 3D)
2-Will I absolutly have to install a governor with this four blades set-up?
3-Is the Hirobo Fenestron system reliable and effective?
4-The OS 60 WC is it powerful enough? (I have seen a couple for sale and they have a .90)
5-Best place for a Canadian to get parts? (The kit is missing the two main doors...
All advice and comments are more than welcome, I am not experienced with scale and know that it can come very expensive. If I go ahead I will slowly bring her to a higher level scale/details wise than she is now,but at the same time a very important point to me is reliabilty and parts availability.
Many thanks for reading me.
