Hirobo's blog site just updated their page to showcase existing and new products. Also on display is the new production version Embla 450E both flybarred abd flybarless versions. There's also a new parts coming out for those who owns Freya Eagle / AOCC electric. I sure don't know though if these parts are exclusive for the eAOCC Eagle or it can be incorporated in other Freya kits that are electric conversions. Dr. Ben would be the best person the explain. So there you have it, alot of exciting new products from Hirobo.

Here's the link: http://model.shinlog.jp/hirobo_fan/

BTW, for those who are interested in the Embla 450E you can pre-order them at your local hobby shops or you can contact MRC's sales division. I'm not employed at MRC however I have dealt with them several times and they are pretty good at fufilling requests and orders. The price is surprisingly reasonable; something that you don't expect from Hirobo since we all know how their other kits are priced. If you're curious about how reasonably priced they are check out MRC's website and see for yourself.

Getting the new Embla 450E would be the right gift to have under your tree for Christmas.

From what I see, those OP EP-3 parts are new gears with more teeth for higher kV motors without having to use a 9T pinion and the need offset bearing block for that gearing. The carbon plate is likely a quickly release tilt down battery mount for the rear battery.

Traditionally, the Oct toy fair is a smaller event than the one in May. It appears that Hirobo mostly concentrated in their five newest releases, namely the Embla, the E3 EP, the Freya D3 SSL, the SDX D3 SL, and the EC135.

I wouldn't read anything further into the Turbulence not being obvious on the tables.

I had to take a second look on one of the pictures to notice another probable new product or so. In one picture there's a SRB EC135 with a 4-bladed configuration. Did anyone else noticed that? I don't know if that's for show purposes only or it'll be a future new product offering for the SRB EC135 models.

one of our major shops here was telling me how dead in terms of sales Hirobo and JR helis are. Align's just dominates the market and most people are not willing to pay extra for the better stuff.

Hirobo better make their Eagle EP like the Sylphide E12 or I'm not going to touch it.

I forgot to mention.....you see the upper auto hub ring in the pic? I'm pretty sure it's a modified ring with pockets in it to accept multiple magnets for external governor use. If you look closely, you can see the shadow of the anodized pockets.

Could be wrong, but it woudl jive (no pun) with what has been seen on the BlackHobby website.

Also the little blue piece looks like a governor sensor mount

4 bladed head for EC-135
AS previous post. NO info about the four bladed head for the ec-135?
This looks really as a must have if it will hit production.

All the best
