Hirobo flyers stick together.
Just a quick post regarding us Hirobo flyers and builders staying together on the forums.

I assume most are already on Helifreak?

Lets not forget our recent excursion to the "Antique and no longer in production" section, rc helicopter Siberia!

Hirobo fans have a lot of combined knowledge and we should continue to maintain and share it. The word from Hirobo is of new models at the Shizuoka 2017 model fair in a couple of weeks. This could be very exciting!

Long live Hirobo

It would be great if Hirobo shows a new nitro machine. But I undesrtand that the current trend is electric.
Anyway the Shizouka hobby fair may bring something exciting for us heli flyiers.

Well, because of Hirobofanusa and Rc/Japan, I recently acquired a Freya, and am converting it to FBL (you've seen it) but also electric. I gleaned info for this by reading 8 year old posts on this and other forums.Thanks to dedicated, loyal knowledgeable Hirobo Flyers!
I think Hirobo will be around after most other manufacturers (save a few) quit.

Hirobo is going strong in SoCal. Thought I'd share a few pictures of my prized Hirobo collection which includes:

On Shelf: 4 x Original 97WCs, 2 x 99WCs with DTDS (one in old BlackShark), 1 x Eagle 3 WC with VPUS titanium kit - not finished

On Shelf: All fuselage models have Hirobo mechanics except the USCG - roban), 1 x Eagle 3 WC with VPUS titanium, 2 x Freyas, 1 x Freya SWM

In closet: All new kits: 1 x Original 97WC, 2 x 99WC with DTDS, 1 x Eagle 3 WC with VPUS titanium kit. Plus a few others like EX2 98 Specs, including a NIB GMP Competitor. Plus one other Eagle 3 VPUS titanium (used) tucked away.... I'm very proud of this collection and it's taken me many, many years to assemble.

Anyway, I thought I would share the photos with Hirobo fans.

Those are great scale shells you have . I'm thinking of putting a Spirit FBL on my Shuttle Plus. I already tried one out on an old B400. Just left the flybar.

Started with a Rappy, than a Sceadu, Freya, lost the plot for a while and flew some other helis...sold all of them.

Got myself a Freya, SDX and Turbulence D3 V1 again...all nitro. Will fly them for many years to come, regret that I tried other brands.

Good affordable quality

Hirobo is in a class of its own.

I almost gave up the hobby at a time. The cost of batteries have doubled in the past 4 years and I reverted to what I know best...nitro

Who wants to fly for 3 and half minutes if one can fly for 7minutes per flight.

Hirobo has redefined stability and durability and I will always fly Hirobo by preference.

FB blades are becoming scares, however I am prepared for FBL.

Great collections.

I have a Freya OPII SSZ-IV that flies for 15 minutes per tank with an OS105 and a Turbulence D3v2 that gives 10 minute flights also with a 105.

I absolutely love them!

martinhung What is the different between Eagle 2 WC 97 and Eagle 2 WC 99?
Main difference is the rotor head SSR-IV vs SSR-V and later on the WC99 was kitted with DTDS, but not the original version. Also the canopy and fins on the WC97 were factory painted while the WC99 was plain white fiberglass with decals. Those are the main diffences.
