SRIMOK 90:
I have never seen a Heli with such precize and beautiful CNC-work and love even to the smallest detail. No Hirobo or JR can match that, not even the Blitz Avro. I think this heli is standing all alone for itsself because there is nothing to compare it with. And at cca. $ 1300 retail it is actually a fantastic deal considering what you get for your bucks. I have ordered mine with the cyber head for FBL, the kit is already with FedEx on it´s way from
Thailand to my dealer
Look at this thread, tons of pictures:

The thread turns into a kind of build-thread beginning from page 6.
btw: Tom Kreuzberger is one of the most gifted young 3D-pilots in Europe.
Enjoy

Yes, agreed..!! Tom is a helpful guy. Even though I am from the other side of the world, he give me some good advise on set-up etc..

Twinpeak: I really second your thoughts on KSM. I never never been so excited about a heli before. Trust me, when you get the kit you will be amazed by the Bling factor. Even now I am still very excited.

BTW: You can post the same question in the Hirobo Forum:
"Srimok or Turbulence".....the answers should be absolute identical

No Hirobo or JR can match that
that is a purely superficial statement. If you know the amount of experience and finesse than goes into helis designed by Hirobo (or JR for that matter), you'd take that back. Anyone manufacturer can improve precision if they need to (granted it will cost more), but what makes a heli is all the experience and test pilot input that went into it. And JR and Hirobo have the best test pilots in the world. And the SSZ-IV might just be the best head in the world.

I've got nothing against Kasama, and it's great that they entered the market to give more choice and dare to gamble on new designs etc.. which is what this hobby needs.

Taking a rehersal, nobody was using the terms "better" or "best" or simillar nonsense. I think we all know, that all of the above mentioned manufactureres make outstanding helis and nearly everyone of us would like to posses all of their models. What I said was, that I have never seen such precision CNC-work on a model helicopter as on the Srimok, not more, not less

Where's the logic in this?

indirectly implies "better" or "best" - end of.

Hirobo can match (and does match) the quality of machining and precision of Kasama. It's just Kasama has a unique design. It is refreshing that there are some companies that are willing to take a "gamble" on doing something in a different way. Sometimes it pays off, sometimes it's a downright disaster. As most people know the larger the company the less willing it is to take risks when it's business has stabilised.

I was talking about the visible surface-quality of the CNC-work, not implying with a single word any comparison of the quality of "THE HELIS" as such .... As I said: I owe choppers from Hirobo and JR as well, love them all and would not enter into childish discussions proclaiming one is "better" or one is "best" period.

Hirobo, JR and Blitz anodize their parts in their own unique way. Kasama does not appear to. If Hirobo etc did not anodize their surface quality would be just as good, it all down to process, machines used and time spent (and hence more cost to consumer). Also certain surfaces on parts don't need such precise CNC machining, whereas surfaces that are going to be in contact with carbon or other surfaces need to be machined very precisely.

Of course, you are right (honestly, no irony )
Let´s be honest: we all love the diversity (everybody has a different aproach) and most like the bling-facor (exusitite surface work even where not needed.)
btw: the only thing I don´t like about the anodizing on the Avro is, that it catches dirt easily and has to be cleaned often and thorouly to mainatin it´s luxury-look....

i am currently building the srimok 90.

earlier today got to see a frens 80% completed 90sg. the quality is there. but.. for usd1499, usd210 more than the srimok, i will pass. the black head reminds me of quick uk upgraded head for my shuttle.

i like the floating tank. dislike the plastic tail grips, white plastic servo wheels and jr did not include all optional parts. you can still purchase separately optional items :S

the gears looked very tough and nice. but most of all.. i dislike the flybar

srimok was my 3rd choice after 90sg and avro. luckily it came out in time.. usd1290, cyberhead plus direct part support from factory. i just cant say no.

Guys, this is all good stuffs and discussion. Be it Hirobo, JR and KSM, we all wanted the best kits out there.

We are the consumer and all these are just going to make our day better. The choice all bogged down to whether the parts are well supported or not in the local hobby scene.

In Singapore, Hirobo supports sucks big time (nothing against Hirobo) but it is the hobby shop that turns me off. The attitude of "take it or leave it" really sucks.

I own a JR Vibe 50 before and I would not want a similar heli, not because of quality. A good example is just like cars. How many of you would like to own a same model for years..?? Unless you own a Ferrari but even then people changes from Ferrari to Lambo etc...

That's the reason I take the Srimok 90. As I said, I took it because of the blings/ looks factor. Also, Thailand is so near to me and I can just get the parts support fast. Trust me, Mr. Kasama responded pretty fast and he listen to customers' comments. Else it would be a three legged freak that comes out at first. Which of course I will not buy then.
