forget the cost of the turbulence to purchase
what you need to look at is the overall running costs of the model
my turbulence has cost me £4.50 uk pounds in repairs in the few years i've owed it from new

crash costs are not that high for the boom and shafts when the day eventualy comes that you have a moment and bend it

going off the repair costs from a cheaper brand i had for 6 months before i sold it on my turbulence was free and is costing less every month
the other branded heli was never crashed but always required spares as it kept breaking

what i'm trying to say is a low cost kit doesn't always work out cheap

and a high cost kit doesn't always work out expensive

the turbulence is an economical heli to own

Morning Payne1967,

lovely way you put it and so true. After owning and selling so many birds (prob over 50 by now), I have downsized my fleet to a raptor 90se (yet to maiden) and my weekly basher 700n that I have painstakingly rebuilt. I am but a mere mortal trying to perfect a figure of 8 and hopefully achieve in my lifetime an inverted figure of 8.

It is really tempting to see how the quality and engineering of hirobo far exceeds that of other brands (i hv to be very careful here). Save for an os105hz, I have all the electronics ready to load onto the turbulence. Oh, decisions...and I just took my GMAT, if I get selected, the opportunity cost of buying the turbulence will be far greater.

D3v2 build
Hi,

in the process of building one of these.

An OS105 short-crank is used. I've tightened the crankshaft nut using a 4-way wrench but the nut is not threaded all the way. In fact its maybe only half-way. Does this look sufficient?

thanks,
R.

Thanks. Yes, the quality is immense. I've been taking a few shots along the way, but not much to see yet. Will post what i have.

I used a 91 HZ-R on mine and the crank is a little on the short side to me. You should have at least one diameter of thread engagement and that doesn't look like it. Build pics are on FB's Hirobo Fan Page.

Looks a little weird to me. Nut should definately screw on more than that.

Is there an extra washer you have fitted or similar?

View from Hirobo factory ...
Guys,

here is what hirobo said,

"Thank you for your email.

We checked your picture. This is no problem as our models are also like this and not having problem. Yes, shaft is shorter and this is only way we can do it."

Definitely looks like a bit odd to me. But i'll take their word for it!

If I were to ever build one, I think I'd be tempted to order the standard shaft 105 and cut it down. I have no doubts Hirobo knows what they're doing but still...
