I must say this older Hirobo Shuttle plus is a blast to Fly and with this os37, it has some really nice power and is sooooo reliable this little engine.

Was this a popular heli back in the days?

Was it more popular than the Raptor 30?

It's not a trex 600 with all the bling but because it's such a basic heli with only the plastic parts, i worry much less when i fly. And for a 30sz heli, it's stands a little bigger than the Trex 600 which is a 50sz heli.

Does anyone still have there Shuttle Plus?
Post some of your photos if u can.

Up is down & down is Up?? - Right is Left and Left is Right??,,,,arggghhhh,,,no 3d hear!!!

Hi,

I also have a Shutlle Plus2.
A brand new one. My first, new, completly self build, nitro heli. Actually my second, I one's trade a shuttle Zx for a kite, and killed it.
I liked it so much that I now bought a new one. So easy to fly compared with my SJM.
Ok, less fast and I believe not capable for sick manouvres. But for my experience very good, stable and reliable.
Maybe within a year or so I buy a sceaudo or a sdx because that 3d thing is blinking in my eyes.

regards Robin

Do they make a more reliable Tail assembly and metal parts for the head?

Thanks again buddy for the comment and happy Flying.

I'm lucky I've got a shop nearby, the guy is specialized in Hirobo heli's. Fairly expensive dough
Know I'm also looking for some cheaper on-line parts.
This is a shop I found with some nice allowed upgrade parts, also expensive. But they do have an alu tail upgrade set. Looks great!
Check it out.

I had a Shuttle Plus a few years back and had a great time with it. The only real down side to the machine is that it has a lot of bushings instead of ball bearings. It got sloppy fairly quick & it cost me about $60 for after market ball bearings.
