Hirobo 707
I bought this unfinished 707 several years ago with the intention of finishing it but it is going to be a "someday" project now with my back self destructing like it is. Hopefully the doctors can help me to get away from some of this pain. It should be a really cool machine when it's finished. I'll need to refurb my Hirobo MKII along with it....and the 555....and the.... There might not be an end to the list.

The 707 is complete but was never finished. I'm going to put a HeliBaby clutch in it to get away from the 2 flight plastic clutch. I will also put a NIB rear start OS Max 61 in to get away from the canopy destroyer starting belt.

Do you have the original decal set or do you plan to make new ones? Nice and clean job on the build so far. Bill

Hi Bill,

Thanks, I don't think I got any decals with it but I did get a complete set of plans if I remember correctly. I would really like to have some original decals for it though. It came to me the way that it is in the photos. It's pretty dirty and needs a complete teardown and cleaning before I would trust any of it. The canopy has few spots that need attention but since it's fiberglass that won't be an issue. I'll put a decent automotive paint finish on it if I ever get healed up enough to do that. Right now it's only a pipe dream and will be stored until I can get to it. It came with the original blades which I will replace before flying it because the wood that Hirobo used in their early machines isn't suitable for rotor blades. It's an exotic wood and it's notorious for having microscopic cracks and imperfections in it and will fail when you least expect it. I disliked working with in my cabinet shop whenever a project came up that called for it because it is so difficult to work with and the dust is slightly toxic and causes some people severe allergic reactions. If you run across any decals or spare parts please let me know. I would like for it look as close to original as possible.

I was hoping that others with old Hirobos like this one would join in and post pictures of their finished machines or projects.

I draw the Deals and used a Cutter to make it.
Can send the dxf Files if someone need it.

Klaus, your 707 looks great! you did an awesome job on it!

Badgefarm, you and I are in the same boat as far as the back goes. I am awaiting surgery on my back. It's gotten so bad I have to use a cane to walk and can't straighten up. Wish you best on your recovery!

Thanks Heli143,
Only people with this kind of pain can understand what we go through on a daily basis. I hope that you can get some help for your back as well.

That NIB MKI you just bought is SWEET! Are you going to build it or just leave it in the box? You can toast bread in the 707 with the add on element pack.

Hi!
I placed the dwg-files for the 707 decals on the site:
http://www.vrhc.co.uk/index.php/en/falcon-7-series
So you can make it with a cutter.

Pics are coming soon. We've been sick with the latest "bug" going around the last few days and not moving too fast.

Man, I wish I had the cash for that. This time of year with real estate taxes are not a good time. That is one sweet 505.
