Hirobo Sceadu EX 0403-945
This is brand new in the box! None of the boxes have ever been opened or pulled out. It is exactly how I received it from the factory, Hirobo in Japan. You Hirobo guys know exactly what this is, the top of the line Sceadu.
Back Story:
I went on a quest to find this in 2013 and searched worldwide. I gave up after several months and then reached out to Hirobo in Japan directly. Mr. Kimura from Hirobo responded back to me and offered to help me find one. He was able to locate one from a local mom and pop hobby shop in Japan and procured it for me since Hirobo no longer produced it. The next part was how I pay for it since Hirobo only dealt with distributors and not the general public. Enter Don Boyce at MRC who was the USA importer for Hirobo. Don had the kit added to a shipment that was in process to MRC, paid Hirobo directly for this kit, sent it to me after MRC received it, and then I paid MRC. Wonderful story indeed and these folks were first class in helping me get this kit! I did pay full retail, $1500, and had no issue with that as I’m sure there isn’t another one to be found. I kept Dr. Ben apprised of this entire quest too as he referred me to Don.
Current Situation:
I have had a very sad life changing situation with the passing of my wife of 36 years unexpectedly early this year. I’m unsure of my future in regards to hobbies and interests and have decided to sell some of my prized possessions. This is one of them.
I have been on RR for many years and have pages of perfect feedback. As you can see it has been a long time since my last post as well. New updated price of $1000. This price includes shipping to the 48 states only. I will accept a money order (verified of course), paypal discreet (F&F) or normal PP with 3% ($30.00) added on the $1000. Not interested in trades. If you want a piece of Hirobo history and the nicest Sceadu ever produced, here it is.

All carbon including the canopy, frame, boom, etc. It is every possible top of the line upgrade kitted in one box by Hirobo. And this is the SWM version not HPM.

its a shame you have not had the joy to fly the EX
my Sceadu Ex was made from a conversion kit in HPM format (a very expensive and hard to find part was obtained by the chap who collected all the parts but never built the model)
the model was built with all new Hirobo upgrade parts with the exception to the rotor head which was a pre-owned Turbulence head that had been tried out on a JR machine
at present mine has a plastic canopy but I do have a carbon one made from an old production UK upgrade,
flying wise the model beats any 50 size helicopter I've flown, it is super smooth and flies even better than you'd expect from a Hirobo

With the current market being so small finding a buyer for this nice kit will be hard. But if you are patient then you may find it at some point.

If I had the scratch right now, I'd take it off your hands, I have a Freya EX and am a die hard Hirobo fan. People get too hung up on "it's only a .50", you will be very hard pressed to find a higher quality machine than this. Period.

Thanks for the kind comment Lou and you too Felino. And you are very correct, nothing better than any high end Hirobo kit! Japanese craftsmanship at its very best.
