    The UH-1N Twin Huey is a twin-engine military helicopter. A member of the numerous Huey family, it first flew in 1969. The UH-1N has a fifteen-seat configuration, with one pilot and fourteen passengers. This is the 600 size UH-1N Iroquois version. Designed to take your Chaos 600 or Trex 600ESP torque tube versions* and transform it into a very scale RC version of the full scale helicopter. This kit includes everything you need to install your mechanics, including the special shaft-driven raised drive system specially designed for easy plug n play install in the Chaos or Align mechanics.

    These 600 scale conversion kits from Roban offer special designed side frames which are designed to offer 2 primary special features. One is to lower the transmission which allows the torque tube to travel thru the lower tail boom of the helicopter which has always been a problem with most military helicopters. Probably the most revolutionary design in scale helicopters, these frames allow the entire mechanical system to be tucked up inside the dog house just like the full scale helicopters.

    No more mechanics taking up the entire fuselage area leaving no room for cockpits, rear seats, etc.

    Most of the work is done for you. All wood work is installed. Pre-drilled holes for easy install of the landing gear. The optional scale cockpit is completely hand assembled and painted for you in impressive detail. All you need to do is just slide it in place. Decals no more! The cockpit is hand painted with raised details and instruments.

    Because the UH-1N Twin Huey is a 2 blade helicopter, there is no need to change any configuration within the mechanics. If you have an existing good flying 600 helicopter, you will not need to upgrade or change anything. Standard 600 set up is an 1100 Kv brushless outrunner motor, 80-100 amp ESC and a 6S 22.2V 5000 mAh or higher LiPo battery.

    This fuselage can be completed in as little as 4-6 hrs and is intended for the intermediate to advanced builder.

    Features:
    • Fully painted fiberglass scale fuselage
    • Magnetic cabin lock system for quick and easy access
    • Extremely detailed surface and molded panel lines
    • Use of 600 standard equipment (6S Battery, 1100Kv motor), fly with your existing parts
    Includes:
    • Roban UH-1N Iroquois 600 body kit
    • Scale landing skids
    Requires:Optional:Important Information - Please Read
    Roban Scale Helicopters are intended for modelers who have advanced level building skills. Both ARF and KIT product formats require you to install your own electronics (ESC, servos, motor, etc). KIT product formats also require you to install your own helicopter mechanics. Because helicopter mechanics can vary greatly in size and shape, you may be required to modify the fuselage slightly (including cutting, drilling, etc.) to achieve a perfect fit. Roban fuselages are all handmade from fiberglass and therefore may have slight variation in tolerances between body panels, doors, or windows. These variations do not affect flight performance and can be easily adjusted by an experienced builder with proper tools. These precautions are intended for novice builders; an experienced modeler should have no issue achieving perfect results with these premiere scale helicopters kits.

    Does anyone know what the right size/scale pilot figures would be for this kit?

      Roughly 1/10 scale (1/9.5) is what I used.

          I received the UH-1 600 kit. Inventoried and all there, and no issues.

          One initial question. The site mentions landing skid holes are pre-drilled; but I don’t see in mine? What size screws are used?? (Was going to mount them to make fuselage more steady)

          Thanks.

            Got it figured out. I found Roban manuals from their site. They were in German so opened them in Word; translated to English then printed!

                  Ok, I give. What is the correct procedure to safely rein or the sliding rear cabin doors without breaking or damaging them?

                  They start to open and feel like binding. Don’t want to force and break them.

                  They do slide fully open, correct??🤔🤔🤔

                    They actually don't, at least not from the factory. I had to take a dremel with the cutoff wheel and extend the slot that the door tabs ride in to get them mostly open.

                      Well I carefully got both side doors off and without breaking anything 😎.

                      Yes, I can see the sliding track slot needs some cleaning up!
