Eta ?


Does anyone know when we might expect the SRB Quark to reach US vendors?

We're expecting to receive it by end of February to mid March, although we haven't done any "official" product announcements yet. We're expecting the cost to be around the $400 mark, but again, nothing is official yet. Keep an eye on our website for more information.

Tach.
Then it'd be an hornet....so temperamental, hard to setup as well as expensive.

Heya,

Found some pics of the Hirobo Quark in the January issue of RC Air World magazine from Japan. Looks awesome! Pricey, but there's no denying Hirobo quality. I want it. Love the Lepton-like canopy.

Good find and from the 2nd & 4th photo we know for certain that the main motor is a brushless outrunner....presumably the tail is still going to burn though.

Interesting but the price is a bit high, this thing is going to compete with the blade 400 with a spectrum radio. Maybe if they offered it without radio and a 3 in 1 it would make more sense.

That flybar is not 90 degrees. It looks it is at the same angle as the flybars on top of the coaxials. Perhapse this his one uses some of the same stabilizing techniques with weights mixed with normal paddles.

Thanks for posting those pics Circlewave!!
I'm really excited about this one, can hardly wait until I can get my hands on one, no matter what the price. Hopefully they'll be here in the US by early February. I noticed the same thing about the flybar angle being at approx 45 degrees from the main blades rather than 90 like a conventional FP which allows it to hover somewhat hands off like shown in one of the home page videos. Just what I need, that extra second to make cyclic corrections when the orientation in my old brain gets confused!!
What intrigues me, among other factors, is it appears to be small enough and somewhat easier to control so should make a good indoor flyer as well as outside during somewhat windless days.

Everybody's like, why buy cheap when you have to mod and mod to get a really good heli, why not pay several hundred dollars for quality?

Where's the fun in that? Next to flying, working on my helis is what I love best!

I'm sure it's a nice heli but from the pics of the flybar I can tell you it will snap on impact. Hope I'm wrong but I'm just looking at it and it looks like a bad design. $400 is not a bad price if you get $400 worth of fun out of it. So far I have 4 heli's and out of them so far I love my honey bee FP because the damb thing can take a beating and snap back together and keep flying. My Honey bee king.. umm not so much. I'm not really into 3D and am just really looking for a nice heli that is simple and fun to fly. So far the HBFP does it for me. It flys in 5-10mph wind and after a crash I just snap the head back on, check to see if the blades are tracking and fly again.

If this bird can do that and fly better than the 64#C1 walkera's then I'll buy it.

i have the walkera 64#c and it's never flown right. even with a spektrum reciever and tlebee gyro. what a waste of money!!
if i could get this one in the usa and get parts i will get it.

The Havoc heli uses a similar design on the flybar. I guess this is an auto stabilization technique that requires no extra electronics.
