It is a hybrid, much like its real-life counterpart, but not just because it has horizontal thrusters in place tail rotor.This RC model’s thrusters are turboprops driven separately by two Plettenberg 3.6 KW motors.video by: DIGITAL RC

The 5-blade rotor is powered by a Jakadofsky Pro 6000, capable of 6.0 KW.This extremely built machine takes RC technology to the extreme.It designed using the original 3-D data from Airbus Helicopters thus ensuring perfect proportions.


The Airbus Eurocopter X3 is based on the Eurocopter AS365 Dauphin helicopter, with the addition of short span wings each fitted with a tractor propeller, having different pitch to counter the torque effect of the main rotor.
