Once again it's that time of the year where all Toy and Hobby companies showcases their new products at the Nuremberg Toy Fair 2013.

Here's one photo that shows what looks like 2 Hirobo flybareless SDX with a completely different frame. It looks like an EP designated SDX kit. (not a EP conversion, but a fully dedicated EP helicopter)

(photos courtesy of 77 Workshop @ facebook)

That's one exciting news. There will be more to come.

I got it off of Facebook. I'm a member of a club page for Hirobo.

I saw that too! May be it's just a name designation Hirobo branded it. It's the same with the Quest (Kyosho) Caliber 700. It's named as a 700, but in theory it's only a 600 size EP helicopter. Then again we'll never really know Hirobo's intent.

Hirobo put one pic on their Fanblog page. I'm sure more will follow when they start making announcements.

As Dennis2581 had mentioned, the SDX EP that's in question is a prototype. It's the project collaboration between Hirobo Europe and TRMF's team (Rüdiger Feil, Dominik Hägele und Andreas Schneeweiß)

Incase you didn't see the link Dennis attached, here's a photo's of the SDX EP prototype.

Top mounted motor:

Here's something interesting: Helical Belt driven system. A systems that's derived from the Quest (Kyosho)Caliber series.

Helical Belt driven system means a less noise and smooth operation.

I know this is just a prototype, but I'm pretty sure the final production version will have a light aluminum or carbon fiber bottom bracket to act as a frame stiffener / battery slot.

Can't wait. Time to save some dough!

You can tell it's not a Hirobo factory design, nothing really feels or looks Hirobo to me. Head is quite different as well and looks a little weak to me IMO.

It may give Hirobo a bit of a kickstart to get them working on something.

I do like that there are people making the effort to get a working prototype flying and atleast try some ideas.

I agree with Bugcatcher, this looks not like Hirobo-ish.

Belt drive deduction also has more parts count, the benefit maybe is to make the airframe more slim? It seems like this prototype is more for 3D design.

Actually Hirobo can simply take TMRF 6S/10S SDX design, Hirobo just need to make a new motor mount, new E-pinion, slightly change the existing airframe to include a build in battery tray(build into plastic frame or a separate carbon bottom plate), then it will be a perfect E-SDX (better than current Hirobo E-conversion for SDX regarding to battery arrangement and without clutch), the modification is not much and will be much better for 3C/sport flying.

I am waiting for E-Freya, or the conversion parts set to convert the current nitro eagle3 to use GT15HZ, or the better E-conversion for the nitro Eagle3 with one piece bearing mount

Bug and petite,

I guess you guys just looked at the photos without really reading into the article that Dennis2581 has provided and made some wrong assuptions.

As for this electric SDX prototype, once again I will say that it's a collaboration of Hirobo Europe (not Japan) and TRMF. So of course it's not going to feel Hirobo-ish like you guys mentioned. Plus it's a prototype you know and not a production version so whatever you see there isn't finalised.

I was told that the frame is designed and cut by a TRMF team. Even the flybarless head is from TRMF. I'm guessing Hirobo is thinking out-of-the-box and allowing pilots to develop new helis for them. Take for example the Turbulence D3 version 2. When it first came out as a prototype I too didn't feel that it's a Hirobo designed heli because it looks ugly (sorry Hirobo) It turns out the designs on that kit is influenced by Yasuichi Sawamura. He help develop that heli. When the final production kit came out, then it looked more like the way Hirobo would make their helis. Same with the Turbulence D3 version 1, it's Dominik Heagle's inputs and design suggestions that help develop that heli. The Eagle 3 series was also a design collaboration between Black Hobby's Kuroda and Hashimoto. So there's no such thing as an exact, in house Hirobo designed heli.

With this new prototype, Hirobo is trying to break away from the sport flying area at the moment to concentrate more in the 3D scene as that's where the market is right now. As you can see with the other heli manufacturers, most of them at releasing 3D type helis that are faster, more aggressive in flight, and possibly lighter frame. I'm pretty sure Hirobo would like a piece of that market. If they were to stay where they were in the past, they will be left behind by the other manufacturers who are moving forward. JR is surprisingly proactive with the market as they are coming out with new products and has been aggressive with making new parts and kits. I'm sure Hirobo will be following too, but it might be at a snail's pace as we all know they take their time.

Here are some photos from the Hirobo booth 2013 Nuremberg Toy Fair.

(All photos are owned and courtesy of Hirobo/facebook)

In this photo is the Eagle 3 AOCC EP and the Turbulence D3 V2.

This one is the Freya EVO 90 SSZ-V GT15HZ gas version.

I don't see any electric Freya/Eagle at this show. If it's true about the rumors of it's developement, most likely we would see it at this year's Shizuoka or Tokyo hobby show.
