Looks like a pusher, motor shaft at rear, air vent above the nose, nice looking model, my son has just bought a 3D printer, I will have to try this out.

This thread is a bit quiet for this time of year - should be loads of builds building. Well just finished the Crescent Bullt of PB Models. OS 46AX and Hitec Digital servos. Got a few models done, but poor light means outside.

Hirobo Lama, based on Shuttle mechanics and electrified. I would add a video of it flying, but for the life of me, I cannot get google photos or videos to embed! crying

But you should be able to see it here: https://photos.app.goo.gl/7EMD4Xp6K415Z1pi8

An impressive and complex scale model Peter, somewhat different to your Frog Jackdaw (although equally nice I hasten to add!). I take it the Hirobo Lama is no longer in production sadly?

On the contrary! Hirobo are still very much in business, and this one is a new build from a new kit! I have to 'fess up to a vested interest, as my son has just started importing them! If you want one, you can get it through Midland Helicopters. **LINK**

 
This was its maiden flight. My son flew it, as we needed to set up the flybar-less controller, and he's the expert! One blade was slightly out of track. As a result of that test session, we've now fine tuned the flybar-less controller and tracking, and I've managed to get my hands on it, too! (I was flying it when the still was taken)

The electric conversion kit comes with a Scorpion motor, if you want to go electric. Also, although it will fly without, its probably best to invest in a flybar-less controller.

It does look the business, though, and flies well! They do a similar Hughes 300, too.

You can even still get the original "Shuttles" - all still in production, and they fit nicely in the Funkey scale fuselages for JetRangers, AirWolfs, etc. Nice compact little scale models!

Sorry - I'm beginning to sound like a salesman! Not my intention! blush

Redshift F3F up at the Gate near Leek ready for a maiden, which unfortunately was spoiled due to one of the V Tail servos packing up. Next time. I have seen videos of it flying and it is mighty fast.

After losing my ESM Hurricane late last year, here is the second flight of its replacement, another ESM again power by a Laser GA30 Petrol. apologies for the poor vid quality, just can't get the staff! And in case you’re wondering what happened at the end, a wheel fell off!
