HI all.
I just got what I believe is a eagle III wc, with what I can tell a szz-III head.
Got the heli second hand, and like I said, I'm new to Hirobo heli's, and don't know anything about them, except that they are the best there is for F3C, and quality wise.

I have been searching the net for hours, and can't seem to find allot of information on this heli or head.
I have seen some of the posts here on RR, and is basicly the only place where I've found some info until now.

I'm looking for a manual to start of with, and also would like to know about the head I got, as I see there is allot of dif heads available, I would just like to know what this head will be best suted for.


Thanx in advance.

I haven't found the complete manual for it on-line but you can get several pages from the manual from Hirobo's Japanese web-pages.

You might want to run the web pages through google translate to understand what they are saying.

It certainly looks like an Eagle 3 WC with mechanical mix and the famed VPUS and all. It's a great heli! I don't know anything about the head on yours though.

Thanx, will give it a try.
Is there ccpm, or atleast eccpm versions also on this heli?
Mine is also the belt drive.
The guy I got the heli from, also gave me parts to convert the flybar to overslung.

Why would you want CCPM when you have the best there is? The VPUS!

But, yes, there is a CCPM conversion for it.

Ah, if you have the belt drive then it isn't the original because that one was/is torque tube drive.

I see now that you distinguish between CCPM and eCCPM. Your Eagle 3 WC is mCCPM with the VPUS which is as good as it gets.

But there is an eCCPM conversion for those so inclined.

Unless the flash caused some glare off the frames, that model is an Eagle 3 WC. I say this because the frames look to be silver, and they were only put in the early kits. The kit came stock with a tube drive, carbon boom and carbon boom braces. The head has been changed out from the original SSR-VII to the SSZ-III.

The latest, second generation of that kit is the Eagle 3 VPUS/SSZ-V (head). That model has an ali tail boom and braces, belt driven t/r, and black carbon frames.

Ask questions as you need. I can write you a small book on that model.

Tanx Dr Ben. Yes its got the silver frames and do have the VPUS system and also got the carbon boom and braces. Does that just mean the 1st owner converted to belt? And I wonder why he swaped the heads... Jonny, I know Henke,eI buy my feul from him and know he is the one to ask about hiribo here in SA. If you guys have any more detail on this heli, I would realy appritiate it.

I had one of the original Eagle 3 WC's and to be honest i prefer the SSZ-V head that is fitted to yours, over the original SSR overslung head!
It just felt more locked into a hover and needed alot less corrections in pirouettes!
Stick with the VPUS, its great system!

The belt drive system on the hirobo eagles is as good as a belt gets (Super smooth)!
If you need any help with it, Dr Ben is your man!!!!!
He's a very helpful friendly guy and knows all there is know about Eagles!

Sorry for the many questions its just because this heli is new to me and would like to know what I have and find out as much as possible of the heli and whats available to me for possible changes in the future for differant applications. Love the product so far and cant wait to learn all about it. Thanx

I found the Overslung heads to be a dream in FFF, whilst the underslung was easier to hover.

Congrats with the new heli Roto.
Remember you now have a heli that will out-perform your F3C flying skills for quite a while still. Better yet, it can become a 12s monster............EASY

Concentrate on your weaknesses and your strengths will reward you!

Congrats on your deal :-) Im sure you will be very happy. Like G says its easy to convert to 12s. When you get a chance upgrade to the new head that most seem to be using now.

Happy flying!

I also don't seem to get more than 11.5+ and 11.5- pitch on the head, thats with my atv's to the max. Also daild in 7deg cyclic pitch Ail and Elv.
Thanx
