Beautiful Bird, Definitely not a toy class, No Coning on the props either. I'd be willing to bet the blades are a glass/composite material. And I'm taking that HK doesn't mean Hobby King?

Yes, it's a Hoibbyking 600GT frame etc, but I don't know what brand the rotor heads are.
You can see a close view of the rotor mechanisms in this vid.
Of course the cp versions of the coaxial design can be made to look and function more scale like, that's been the case for a while.
The even more difficult thing to achieve is to get the these basic fixed pitch ones to perform and look more realistically, uphill battle comes to mind.
There's only a very limited amount of changes/mods that can be effectively implemented on a fixed pitch coaxial. There's certainly been enough people trying different ideas over the years.
The 3-blade rotor/swash mechs by Skytek for the Lama 400 are the only commercial upgrade that I've seen. Nice piece of engineering but the price is steep and they're probably not available any more, E2 would know more on that subject than I would.
