I went over the PDF manual for the D3v2 and to my surprise Hirobo did a lot of improvements as far as reducing the weight and strengthening this bird. They got rid some of the aluminum parts to lessen the weight, heightened the engine mount for better CG, and fortified the rear part of the frame to hold the tail boom and fuel tank firmly. I might actually order this and if I do, I might try putting on the old SSZ-IV head on it....we'll see.

It looks like if you wanted to you could upgrade the old D3 probably be costly but until the parts pricing comes out we wont know.

However just looking at the manuals there is 400g difference. I would think that the flybar and bits would be almost half of that. And Hirobo themselfs state that if you use all of the carbon upgrade parts on the D3 you'll save 190g. So my guess is that most of the weight saving is in the carbon parts and lack of flybar.

Hi Hoggy

The D3 v2 manual can be downloaded from Hirobo web site now and it has parts price in the parts list section, use that price - 25% is the price you can get from Japanese shops, eg, RCJapan.

RCJapan price always a little bit higher than other RCFunFun and Rc Champ but won't be much difference.

Correct me if i'm wrong, but do we have to buy a special engine for this one ie. OS105 short shaft motor.https://rcjapan.net/index.php?main_...cd2560c7aa5003a

"Clutch
Special short size fly wheel included to mount OS105 HZ short shaft engine. Other clutch parts are same as Freya series.
Please note: Use normal Freya fly wheel (0414-392,
sold separately) for mounting other 91-120 engines with regular length shaft."

Why the difference? Is this for higher mounting for better CG?

The new one looks a lot lighter than the old version.

I'll find out about the engine.

If money is no object the D3 would be my first choice, I wish I had one. The Freya is an excellent hell. I love mine. It has an all metal head except the grips. Which i prefer to leave plastic.

before you call mrc, I would call udisco which is Canada's distributor. They seem to have a much better price.

That's good news. It'll even be a greater news if you and your family are okay after that bad hurricane Sandy. Any damages to your home and such?
