I took a hiatus from helicopters for a while and I noticed that the Shuttle ZXX is no longer available. Has Hirobo stopped production of the shuttle in favor of the Scedeau? May have to change my name as soon as I run out of spare parts to repair the three that I have.

you can still get parts and god knows, you could buy a used chassis for short money.

how long is Hirobo supposed to kit up an obsolete machine? really, time has moved on from the ZXX (and I learned on one).

I think the 'Shuttle' name sort of lives on as I think the real name of the Sceadu has the word Shuttle in it.

according the Hirobo .jp page, the Plus2 is only an ARF. If you want a true kit, they still make the Plus

Update
Contacted Helicopter world...They stated that the shuttle has been discontinued for some time now. 25 year run is not too bad.

great heli, somewhat past its prime... I have 3, two flyable, one just a parts heli. You can still get parts, both oem and aftermarket. My direction is to bling one up to be a hanger queen, maybe keep the other when I want to fly nitro but avoid fuel cost issues related to the bigger birds.
