The Turbulence is a 90 size helicopter that is known as the Turbulence D3. The SDX is a 50/60 size helicopter; as far as I know there is no D3 designation.

There are two different SDX D3's actually. The first is is just the D3 SL which basically comes with the same upgrades as the Dominik edition. This includes Carbon fiber vertical stabilizer, 89T Delrin main gear, Metal one way auto housing, Hardened main blade bolts, Metal fan housing, Carbon bottom plate, metal radius stay, and the SL Flybarless Rotor Head.
The kit part number is #0403-967.

The second Is the SDX D3 SL Option edition. Which Adds to the D3 SL a new Ex 6mm tail shaft assembly , FRP painted canopy, and SD-G clutch. This kit is part #0403-968

Here is a link to the D3 SL kit http://model.hirobo.co.jp/english/

Oh that's very interesting! There was a story behind the Turbulence and the "D3" moniker, but I guess the moniker has now been applied to the SDX - living on the coat-tails of the Turbulence!

I like the option machines and over the past two years, I've ended up replacing some of the stock parts and added a few enhancements. I haven't touched the head on one machine though on the other I've added the flybarless head.

I saw the 6mm tail shaft and it looks nice. I haven't had any issues with the one I have though.

I'm upgrading to a d3 option my self. Just waiting on the 6mm 16T pulley to come in to stock.

One thing I never understand.. I think the SDX low profile landing gear is too soft and low. The D3 one is way much better. They should have added this into SDX D3.

Conversion from Japanese Yen with the tax is $1300. Seems like everything made in Japan is very expensive due to exchange rate.

The exchange rate is indeed a killer on the price.
