Hi to all scalers,
Just finished my Hirobo SuperCobra and it's ready for it's first test flight. Got my fingers crossed that everything goes well.

engine:OS91RZH (DH)
3 X HITECH HS6975 HB servos
Rudder serco: FUTABA S9254
Gyro: GY401
Gun: NES331
Radar Sight:NES331 gun and radar sight servos joined by "Y" harness and mixed into the rudder controlls.
Paints: Tamiya flat NATO GREEN, FLAT BLACK, automotive primer as Grey base color. The Nato Green and Flat Black paint has been Airbrushed onto the fuselage.
An automotive top coat clear paint was used to seal the paint scheme. The top coat was specially made and has a flattening agent in the paint to take the shine out of the top coat. It was also applied via airbrush. 20% top coat and 80% thinners was the mix to allow the top coat to be sprayed with ease.
15% nitro helimaster fuel to be used with Enya 3 glow plug
NHP Main and Tail Blades.
