Smartmodel Ec 145 T2 inc hirobo fenestrone system
 
Looking on Sm website it seems they have released this new Ec 145, if anyone has some info about it or if kin could post some real pics of the kit and also fenestrone it would be appreciated!

Maybe I am wrong, but I was always thinking the EC 135 had a fenestron, the EC145 a raised tail and tailrotor.... Both having a similar fuselage, but with different tail system
EC 155 has a fenestron though, but looks completely different....

That is the newer T-2 model of the EC-145 which does have a fenestrone tail.

I beleave it is still in the forming and molding stages and is not ready for production yet.

If you mean the kit then it should say preorder if its not ready,looking on sm website it get the feeling its ready since its payable inc shipping.

That is the 700 size correct?

I know he was working on a smaller 600 size the last time I talked with him a couple of weeks ago IIRC.

That one most likely is done and ready to ship , I know that it uses the Hirobo fenestrone tail unit which is sold seperate for like $350 more.

Other than that I can't really tell you much more , sorry.

The EC -145 T 2 is a new develope models . it is a size can fit 700 mechanic and try to fit for 600 mechanic . it is the tail fan size fit Hirobo fan system , i still good relationship with Hirobo . So i have the fan systen full set easy .And it size not too big .This models included the tail speed choose gear box . you can select you gear ratio in 3-4 choice . so no need conside tail speed problem between the main head speed . In this moment the fuselage is completed the molding , just fitting the tail fan mounting . it wil;l come out very soon . The fuselage included 4 openable door and full inside detail door frame . Dog house mechanic also possible (optional ) , this fuselage is prefect fit the SM 650 mm carbon BLADES (It Won ) In the Helicopter Scale Master (flying award) . Congratulation to Davey !!!!!!! . The tail system can order combo with the kit and you also just move your Hirobo fan convertable to my fuselage . 100 % fit and no any modification .

I've been debating what my next scale heli will be. You have my attention with this kit but the cost of the fenestron has me worried. One site had the full fenestron kit for $999!
