Default My New Shuttle ZXX

Just bought one of these second hand, but never flown, and os 32sxh never started :-)

Unfortunatly, the plastic canopy turned yellow from sunlight/UV damage, so I painted it whaite again, and had to remove the stock rainbow colored decals.
So I found an old retro design from some pics, and cut a out a new set for it :-)

Cant wait to get it flying. Love the old helicopters.
Remember seeing them in the hobbyshops when I was a kid, and not being able to afford them ....and now tha are all discontinued.

Hi !
It also reminds me of those old adds, man they were expensive !
But don't they fly like crap compared to modern machines ?
The ZXX was an improvmeent from the Z and the ZX I seem to remember.
Maybe you'll be bothered by spare parts unavailability

Yea, way too expensive in the old days
I got inspired of theis picture which I think is from an old Graupner catalog maybe ?

Shuttles fly just fine for what thay are.
They just do not have the power compared to the .50 size helis.
I bet it would do 3d just as well as the new helis if you put a 50 in it, and if it could take the power without exploding

The ZXX is the top" version with ball bearings allover.

I think the shuttle plus, and then shuttle plus 2 came after it.
