Hey Folks, Just one last update on Hirobo.
After the end of Hirobofanusa, I contacted Emma from RC Japan and asked her about distribution and Hirobo's plans for the future and She informed me that they are continuing to make parts to stock supplies and apparently continuing with designs such as the Gigas.
So we are good for now!

I saw a Hirobo video on Facebook and it appeared to have a 600 or 700 size Gigas in it.

I'd like to see that. Wonder if they use turbulence / eagle / freya stuff on it.

Ok maybe a false alert. Sorry it’s unusual for me to create unwarranted excitement. Here is the page:

On looking at the post on the Hirobo Japan FB page it is actually an Eagle 3EP in a fancy purple and pink canopy. There is also an upgraded Gigas in a different colour canopy that in one photo looks bigger than the standard one next to it. In another photo it appears to be the same size as the stock 550.

I must have just been sleep deprived and extremely hopeful!

Funny through the translation of Japanese, Mr Matzusaka implies that they may continue to make rc helicopters to train folks around there to pilot crop spraying helis....

The upgraded Gigas seems to be a 600-size

Wow, didn't think this one still had legs but to any and all interested, looks like all of Hirobofanusa's stock is for sale on ebay for $9,999.
This is all of the last stock of shuttle thru Gigas and Sirocco parts!
Anyone wanting to startup distribution in USA, this could be a shot. Or if you had that much disposable cash, lots of spare parts for your fleet!! LOL!
