What makes a SPECIAL EDITION Hirobo Evo 50 EX HPM so special?

I'm Reviewing one of these models is the RR ads, and it is a very cool looking heli.

Is it possible to still order this model NIB?

What year did this model hit the market?

Thanks for helping.

I could be mistaken but, if I remember correctly Special Addition meant that it came with the aluminum mods that you would normally have paid $800 extra for later.

Tighten it tell it loosens then back it off a quarter

Not much chance to order a NIB Sceadu Evo 50 EX HPM. Of course, so stupid like me would have one HPM kit for collection only.

If for an option, I have also bought the Carbon EX frames upgrade from Hirobo onto the Evo version. It's performance would be similar.

For an better option nowadays,suggest not to look into this option. Then place an pre-order directly to TMRF for its Progressive 611!

It is an carbon frames with all the next era design. You may add on the SL head or TMRF's Waigo 50 head. May or update the SDX parts onto the Progressive 611. Feel the difference!

The Hirobo EVO 50 EX both in HPM and SWM are all discontinued products. You won't find any of this kit new. These kits were first introduced back in late 2006 -2007. The EVO 50 EX is the top of the line of the Sceadu series bearing the all metal SD-G head assembly, high torque auto hub, white delrin main and secondary gears, carbon frames and tail boom/tailboom supports, metal tail gear assembly, fiber
glass canopy, and low stance Freya landing skids. Like Diamond has mentioned TMRF
/ Hirobo Europe is selling a carbon EP conversion frame for the SDX platform. The frame design utilizes a top motor mount configuration, SWM swash setup, and an easy slide in battery mount. This EP conversion carbon frame can be a direct install for the SDX. Goggle TMRF Progressive 611 EP conversion kit and you'll see the photos.

The Progress 611 is a nice conversion but heavily modified and could be a design on it's own, the conversion needs to be quite simple like this although has an ic engine for the sceadu or SDX.

RCjapan.net still lists them

https://rcjapan.net/hirobo-0403-000...8gua4rs3880rst5

Don't know if there in stock but I know that when ever I ask my local hobby shop about ordering old Hirobo parts he says that he can. Even the parts for the original CH-46 model.

Can't hurt to try. And let us know if you do.

I have asked Wendy Hope of RCJapan.net before regarding the Sceadu 50 EX as I too am looking for that kit. I was told that they're sold out and discontinued.
