  • Advice: Roban "Huey" UH-1D Army 800 Size Scale Helicopter

    Hi All -

    I’m looking to order the Roban "Huey" UH-1D Army 800 Size Scale Helicopter on Motion RC but I see that it’s out of stock. Do these typically/frequently come back in stock or will getting one be difficult? (FYI - I’ve submitted my email to be notified if/when it’s back in stock)

    Here’s the deal…I’m wanting to surprise my husband with a large scale RC Huey and I’m just starting to research this. If it’s unlikely that it’ll be back in stock on Motion RC, does anyone have any recommendations on who I could contact to discuss a custom RC? If it matters, I live in the U.S.

    Any help is much appreciated!

    Hello Cortnee,


    Usually they come back in stock every few months, so it might be a while before they come back. You might try shooting a message to Motion customer service and ask if there is an eta for another Roban container. There are a few other good options for custom building. Mark Smith at Heliworkshop does incredible custom builds of RC models from the Vario kits: https://www.heliworkshop.com/. He's a great guy and does excellent work. Will definitely be more expensive, but he always does an excellent job. His models will be a big step up from Robans in both detail and quality.

    If you prefer to order the Roban model now, you could also order from scaleflying.de. They have it in stock and they do ship to the USA: https://scaleflying.de/en/Roban-Supe...800/Fuselages/.

    Hope This help!
