For their 30-size scale helis, Hirobo used modified mechanics (chassis). The head is pretty much a stock Shuttle unit. I hope that you got a good deal on the Huey, as they are very expensive, around $700 today. Please don't use it to learn how to fly though, get a different heli and learn on that first. You'll enjoy the Huey more that way.

thanx people.

yes i know its a shuttle..but there are different shuttles..z..zx.zxx...shuttle plus..shuttle plus2 and i really havent found out what this one on the scale version is.

and i can assure you,,i wont learn on this heliim from norway so things are even more expensive over here.for 750 dollars ,i got the hirobo scale uh 1b model pluss an extra uh 1b fuselage with alot of extra parts such as an extra tail rotor,main frame with some parts on it.no rotor thoughthe red n white one has a os 37 engine in it,brand new.
i have a small nine eagle kestrell 500sx with a fixed pitch to learn on.and i recently got myself a align t rex 600 cf electric,which im gonna convert into an airwolf scale model.
but i think im gonna just keep it as a pod and boom heli for now..and learn to fly first and then after a period of time convert it to a scale model.

cheers for all replys

Though based on Shuttle mechanics they are NOT the same as the shuttle itself so shuttle versions do not mean anything. The Huey has the S30 mechanics and though generally shuttle bits it does have some specific to only the scale mechanics set.

Manual below has all the details.
