The new 550 helicopter we showed at Shizuoka hobby show in May was named "Gigas 550E"
While using many Shuttle and SDX parts, we made new carbon frame so the model
can be used at 550-600 class model.
The concept for Gigas series is this model can transform itself to many different models
depending on skills and needs of customers. It can use wide ranges of current Hirobo
parts from Shuttle, SDX, and Freya/Eagle lines. We are planning more new option parts
in the future, so each pilots can build truly their own Gigas.
