A revolutionary model: Tarot 550/600
Reengineering of RC helicopters
It looks like an autobot helicopter from Transformers. It is expected to stand up forming an antropomorph creature. But this is actually a helicopter and not a bad one. Minzhi Zhi at Tarot has decided to create an extraordinary, but working concept. This is now Tarot 550/600.
This helicopter was seen at Thailand Heli Blowout 2019 and it has shocked people. The conception is so unusual, it has generated many questions.
For example, is there any canopy? No, this helicopter integrates the mainframe structure and the canopy into one big and well designed bodywork. This mainframe hosts the motor, the ESC and electronics, including the servos and FBL device in their prepared slots, and even the batteries are wrapped and covered entirely, therefore the crash protection is higher than with most of the helicopters.
This mainframe is modular, so when it breaks, not everything has to be replaced. The number of the modules is still secret as weel as the materials used. And this is the reason why the helicopter is not available yet. As we are informed, the production phase is still in development, and there are few changes expected at the final model. Menzhi Zhi spent more than 500 hours so far on development, but he decided to not release the model before it is perfect.
The helicopter is direct belt driven, however not all parts are brand new, few components came from former Tarot models. This version is the 550/600, however a 700 class is also planned after a successful release of this one.
Sadly, the helicopter is not merketed yet, and still unknown, when it will be available. Future price is also unknown apparently. The helicopter was introduced at Thailand Heli Blowout 2019 indeed, but it wasn't flying as not all parts are done yet.
We follow this model and its development, further info will be published, when it will be possible.
