Tron 5.8 580 RC Heli | High Performance & Flexibility

The Tron 5.8 Heritage RC Helicopter is a high quality 580 class electric heli that provides an extensive feature list, flight envelope, and simplicity in design. The 5.8 features many design elements that are shared within the family of helicopters from the 5.5, NiTron, and 7.0. Features such as the octo-boom that is free of boom supports, elegant and simple battery tray system, optimized servo and rotor head geometry, and simple wiring for your electronic components.

The 5.8 Heritage delivers newly found features that are standard in the kits. A boost in aesthetics is delivered thanks to the additional Fusion design, that adds high visibility color matched stickers to the side frames, and tail fin. In addition to that, canopy installation and removal couldn't be any easier thanks to the supersonic rear style canopy mounts. In addition, two color styles are available - Orange/White/Black, and Grey/Yellow/Black. Pick your style above.

The 5.8 is purpose built to deliver incredible performance for pilots who are looking to equip the heli with either 580mm or 610mm main blades. All up weight of the model (airframe only) comes in around 1530 grams (~3.4lbs). Due to the lightweight design, and wide acceptance of 6s through 12s power systems, the performance and feel is up to your preference as a pilot and components that are installed.  Pair this with the ability to use either full size or mini size servos for the rotor head, you can further enhance the performance through the wide choice of components.

This helicopter is a joy to assemble it flys great and looks awesome especially with the matching yellow tail and main blades by 1st. The blades were bought from another hobby store.
I equipped mine with a spirit FBL unit with geolink, Xpert KD1 servos, hobby wing 120A esc and a xnova motor running on a 6S 5000 pack. The helicopter is rock solid in flight and all electronics remain cool to the touch even after back to back flights of hard flying.

Absolutely fantastic helicopter. I have ALL brands and this is the only one that rivaled and ever-so-slightly surpassed the parts quality of my beloved SAB kits.

They fly excellent, so much that I call them my little demons. People know I ABUSE my helis so I have to be careful what I chose to fly so it won't explode in the air and this thing handles everything I threw at it.

I also have the 5.5 and after that experience I knew I was going to get one of these too. The one I have is the gray and yellow one and it's a beauty.

I was surprised at how visible it's in the air. I was a bit worried initially but after the first flight I realized I had no reason to worry and I loved it.

Buy it with confidence. Amain has always been top notch when it comes to supporting what they carry.
