Default hirobo .30 huey question


Guys,
I have a question. Is the Hirobo .30 sized Huey UH-1 helicopter a full kit with mechanics or does it just come with the fuselage? I know that sounds strange but I have had two different hobby shops give me two totally different answers. I just want to make sure it is a full kit before I plunk down $800.00

Thanks!
Pete

All of the Hirobo .30-size scale helis use the same basic mechanics. There are details unique to each heli. But yes, you get a complete set of mechanics that are designed for the Huey. That's the only way the Huey comes.

Yes you get the mechanics. Probably a variation of the Shuttle 30

Thanks guys. Thats what I thought but when a heli shop tells you no you really scratch your head.

Thanks!

Do all the Hirobo scale kits include mechanics? If not, which ones do and which ones don't? It's hard to tell from most ads.

The "simpler" scale kits are body sets like Jet Rangers, Bell 222's (except the big gasser), 500's, and Long Rangers. The Cobras, the Lama, the Hueys, the fenestron tail helis, and Bell 47G are bodies and mechanics as there is really no way to fit a standard sport heli into the scale body parts set. For example, a Lama or Schweizer cannot use a Sceadu or Shuttle mechanics. No way to bolt up the tail in a scale fashion.
