Anything New?
Is Hirobo coming out with any new products soon?

Only thing I've seen is the 450. Hopefully they have a lot more than that in the pipeline. I heard rumors of a revised more compact D3 but haven't seen anything and they are just rumors at this stage. They have been quite on any new major releases for a while now so I hope they have something new coming.Raptor 90 G4 / YS120SRX / VBar Silverline / Futaba / Rotor Rage / Edge

Talking about any brand new heli's in the pipeline.

Then only full redesign appears to be the 450(collaboration between thunder tiger/hirobo) The rest are basically additions to existing designs/FBL conversions.

Don't get me wrong, I love flying my d3's, but would like to see what hirobo really has in the making, not just an FBL head for an existing design, but any totally new heli's including any ground up electric designs.

The only rumor I have heard is a more compact/lighter d3, however, I haven't seen anything to back this up except rumors.

The Freya is more than a FBL head.

Has D3 auto hub, D3 tail grips, Delrin main gear, CF fins and base plate, CNC swash and FBL head.

Basically just updated for higher outputs and more aggressive flying.

I see where you are coming from, but thought they were worth mentioning.

Definitely worth mentioning Gorn, but that freya setup is basically what I sold before I went to the D3(with the SSZ-4 head as opposed to the new FBL head). I'm still very happy with my d3's and to tell you the truth, I'm very excited about FBL, but can't break away with my current fb setup on my d3's as I have them flying exactly how I like them(not to mention the cost of converting both of them to FBL).

I did hear those new d3 rumors a while back so hopefully they are true. Have also noticed dominik has dropped off the scene a bit too so maybe he is working on something new with hirobo. I know he is competing in f3c heavily but i can't help noticing that there is big gap in his flying that hasn't been made public and is being kept under wraps. Maybe I'm just missing something here but there is definitely a change.

I do no think, with the current low price of Align etc. . . carbon framed helis, that Hirobo will ever make another plastic frame 90.

someone here on this forum will know about how much these moulds cost and how much of an investment they are. To many I suppose it's hard to justify the price of a plastic frame 90 when you can get an all carbon frame heli for about the same price.

The new 450 comes in both fb and FBL. I've been extremely happy with my hirobo's, I hope they keep the new heli's coming though.Raptor 90 G4 / YS120SRX / VBar Silverline / Futaba / Rotor Rage / Edge

No.
As far as I know, both FBL heads should be out in around a month.
