Default Please Help me Identify This Hirobo Chopper....>>>

I recently aquired this Hirobo Shuttle (?) and I am looking to correctly identify it so I can purchase parts and restore it to a flyable condition.

Any ideas on what exactly it is?

Thanks in advance for any info!

Its a Shuttle. Can't narrow it down any more than that.

Yeah, I was pretty confident it was, but I was trying to get a little more info. I can tell you that it does not have the top start system on it and it has bearings throughout. One of my customers emailed me and said it was a Shuttle Z Plus? But I have no way to determine that. I am obviously NOTa helicopter guy.

Thanks for the help!

It's a Shuttle Z/Zx/Zxx. You can find its manual at http://warhammer.mcc.virginia.edu/ty...tle/index.html

I found this site via http://www.rchelibase.com/

One of our pilots still flies his. Flies nice and smooth, but parts can be an issue.

I used to have the Hirobo Shuttle similar to yours. They are great Helo's but like what was stated above, parts support can be a pain. I was however able to find most everything I needed in Ebay.

The Helo in the picture is not a "Top" Start Helo, it is a belt start type (tan belt showing in the picture). It takes a bit to get used belt starting but once you figure it out it's not a bad way to go. The Older Shuttles are a very stable learning platform, and with the O.S. .28 run pretty good. I sold the one I had a few years ago when I upgraded to a Raptor V2.

Default identifying this hirobo model?

Hi rc universe.
I am as green and new to the chopper world so please indulge me.
I am trying to identify the model I have purchased. Basically it's something I've always wanted but wasn't prepared to pay a fortune in a one off flight to crash and get all a bit miffed over. Well I had a rush of blood on the auction site we all must know and picked up the helicopter for 48 quid with an older 35mhz futaba transmitter.
I am sorry I am also a newbie to the rc uni too. So I'm afraid I have no idea of how to post pics. If someone would please be prepared to give me an email address and I will happily forward as many photos as is needed to 1st get the right operating booklet. 2nd to get the right spares. And 3rd if there's any obvious defects noticed that I need to address prior to ever hoping to get it up and running. I know I've had a result as I could strip it and have parts available and servos etc as spares for my son's car. But the idea would be to understand this piece of kit and get it up and running. And of course be able to maintain it and keep it in good order as I do my 4x4. Which I keep adding to and hopping up. The front cover has ripmax 65 grip. As she'll stickers. But I cannot find a model online that matches these transfers/stickers. I'm not going to touch it until I know what it is and what I need to get it up off the ground
Thanking you in advance and hope someone is prepared to help me out.
Brett
