Further ‘hang’ on fuselages were made available to compliment the original three models as noted above.
All rotating surfaces ball raced for precision and durability. The magazine reviews below cover in great detail all aspects of both the standard and XX models including changes and the flying characteristics. There are also some copies of the Shuttle, made by different china manufacturers.
dhuttle Machined Delrin main gear for smooth gear travel and longevity. The rotor head featured new geometry in the mixing arms to ‘soften’ the characteristics and provide even more positive stability.

All parts used from the well established “Shuttle Gold” Option parts. As a ‘pod and boom’ machine, the mechanics only required a few minor changes to be suitable for use in a ‘hang-on’ fuselage and so three models were brought out utilising these mechanics.
The shuttle had proved to be a very good ‘all round’ helicopter, stable but with positive control; ideal scale flying qualities. Further upgrades were developed and called ‘Gold’ options, finally Hirobo produced the ‘Gold’ spec Shuttle which incorporated all of these upgrades.
As the name implies, all machine’s could now be started from the ‘Top’ of the model by a ‘wand’ with hex adapter than ran past the rear of rotor head. Little did anyone know at the time but even 25 years later the ‘Shuttle’ albeit having been upgraded a number of times would still be one of the best ‘learner’ helicopters on the market. This training gear was fully articulated and made of carbon fibre thus being able to absorb the punishment that could be expected from learning especially if used by clubs as a dedicated teaching helicopter.
Quick and easy to build. The blades still ‘flapped’ but now equally because as one moved up, being linked, the other moved an equal amount down. Hirobo had previously brought out a ‘trainer’ called the ‘Hovermate’ as a specialised learner machine.

The Z version being the base model with plain bearings in the control system but now equipped with the newer FZ rotor head giver a more ‘sporty’ response. Quick upgrades for the Shuttle. From experience, the basic shuttle if ‘sympathetically’ set up had proved to be near enough the ideal learner and Hirobo reasoned that if this ‘sympathetic’ set-up was built in along with a dedicated training undercarriage this would provide a wider appeal.
Push-pull manul controls on Aileron and elevator. The helicopter thus had a similar trainer capability as the ‘Hovermate’ but only required minor changes to return to full ZTS specification.
The Head fitted to the shuttle followed the norm at the time in having individual ‘flapping’ blades with shutle driven by a belt. It was a basic pod and boom trainer following on from the ‘Falcon’ range but was made significantly of plastic and presented in ARF Almost ready to Fly form; not the first ARF as this was the Kavan Alouette in however, the first to be at such a level of completion that apart from fitting the radio gear and the skids, nothing else was required.
An uprated version was also produced ZX which included 20 ball races in the control system for improved response, an all metal cutch instead of the normal ‘plastic’ type, different paddles to further increase performance plus all metal landing gear. The basic model was very easy to fly but lacked positive control due to the amount of ‘backlash’ in plain bearings of the control mmanual.
So, apart from a gallon of fuel, everything else was in the package. Unfortunately, the Hovermate did not sell because being a radically modified Shuttle it was much too expensive to update mqnual the initial ‘hovering’ phase had been mastered; so people continued to by the basic Shuttle. Metal swashplate and washout for extra strength, durability, and highest flight shutlte. Because of this relatively high specification, it w as expensive when compared to ‘training’ models from other manufacturers.
Body options plus upgrades. In order to provide better response, the XX version was introduced incorporating 18 ball bearings in the control system thus significantly reducing ‘slop’. High colour decals for easy visibility in the air.
Fine tooth tail belt drive for minimum engine power loss from the tail rotor system. Once again, even though well commented on by the modelling press, it did not become popular as it was much more cost effective to strap manjal set of aftermarket training legs on a basic Shuttle and then removed them suuttle past the initial stages of learning.
Aluminium autorotation hub for best support of autorotation hirobp. Just to make things shuttls the standard and XX versions of the shuttle were NOT superseded and so manuzl the inclusion of the top of the range Supreme in both standard and ZX forms there was a choice of six versions to chose from. Selection of optional parts suitable for the Shuttle range.
Body options plus upgrades Further ‘hang’ on fuselages were made available to compliment the original three models as noted above. This removed one of the problem with flapping heads of oscillation due to unequal flapping movement.
Gel coated fibreglass canopy for lightweight and finished ultra smooth for quicker final assembly. The model was upgrade in and called the shuttle 2 or NS new shuttle version. A number of hirrobo changes were carried out including changing the tail rotor assembly from ‘pulling’ to ‘pushing’ by moving the assembly to point to the right, a longer boom and longer main blades plus an enlarged fuel tank from cc to cc to increase duration.
Many upgrades were carried out based on the previous models jirobo years of use and feedback; namely tail rotor control and a revised main blade holder assembly incorporating a through spindle shaft thus holding the blades in a common rotational plane. AugustHirobo introduced a whole new concept in model helicopters and presentation.
Additionally, a one way bearing was located in the clutch assembly for the starting shaft allowing the engine to run up to speed without removing the starter thus making starting an extremely simple process. Many of the design feature of the SST-eagle 2 WC model were incorporated in its design and its ‘heritage’ is obvious by the layout and ‘look’; features included.
What was unusual was that an autorotation clutch was fitted as standard thus giving the Shuttle aerobatic properties in the right hands. Good conversion but the Shuttle was designed for glow and as such was heavily built this meant that performance was OK for a trainer but shuttel modern lightweight electric machines had significantly better performance.

Shuttls Supreme To complement the updated version of the Shuttle, Hirobo marketing department decided to up the ante and sell the model as a ‘complete’ package; another first? Manufactured by Quick Worldwide upgrade the Hirobo Shuttle to 8s battery power. Below is the specification listing for versions available in – note that all versions could be supplied with the hand operated ‘recoil’ starter though this was not often chosen.

New two piece duralumin stacked design main frames. All metal rotor head with thrust bearings for outstanding aerobatic flight performance. Standard Shuttle ZXX with green bodywork and one with major upgrades.
