FYI, I assembled one for my local hobby shop. The finish and the mechanics were nice but the detail parts didn’t fit well, were very brittle, and broke easily. The retracts took a lot of work and shimming to make operate, there was no wiring schematic for the lights and light control unit, and the instruction manual was the worst I’d seen in my whole 40+ years in the hobby. The manual actually depicted a different rotor head that came in the kit. The upper lighted Cockpit console panel burned out AFTER it was glued in, and the mechanics are extremely difficult to access once everything is together. You have to disassemble half the machine to access anything. No details of how or where to mount the ESC or how to secure the two huge LiPos. Also, the factory assembled Vario main frame was assembled with so much loctite that I had to heat most of the screws with a small torch in order to remove them to install the brushless motor. So my advice is be very careful. For what those kits cost I expected a LOT more than just difficulties. I wouldn’t assemble another one of those kits for any amount of money.

Vario meaning.. many possibility's? Or Vario the company. I would be VERY supersized if it was the later.

They were made by Vario, the scale Heli company.

Could be the person who purchased the fuselage had the mechanics to install in this fuselage, but Roban does not supply Vario mechanics to install in their fuselages.

The helicopter came as a complete kit, that’s all I can tell you. The instruction manual stated Vario Mechanics.
