I'm getting a Hyper 7 RTR and a few other things from ACE Hardware Hobbies. Will cost me about $900AUDincl. postage. Now I just have to save, should be done by the end of the year.


Can't wait

What sort of other things???

Radio Models in Perth have the "HoBao Hyper PBS RTR" with Hyper 8 port motor for $575 and that's within Australia.

Is that the same buggy as the Hyper 7 ?

Shipping for my buggy from these guys was $25 to Sydney.

Does this help you get a buggy sooner and get out there and have some fun???


Cheers! Oggy

i'm pretty sure they are the same buggy. the PBS version just has pivot ball suspension instead of the standard c - hub style suspension arms

The PBS has Pivot Ball Supension and comes with a starter box. I have heard that the engine in it is really hard to get running during break in.


The other stuff I'm getting is 2 sets of tires and rims, a failsafe, temp gun, fuel filter and someair filter foamthingys.


I think I'll check out Perth and see what they have.

I Dont understand how anyone can possibly believe that..


The Ofna PBS and the Hobao PBS are the EXACT same thing, just like a Thunder Tigher MT-A4 and a Associated Monster GT.

Have you ever even owned an Ofna engine?? I for one own one and dont have any REAL problems with it, except for basic nitro issues like gettin it started with different air pressures and things like that.


Your opinions are merely based upon those of other people. They are the SAME vehicle, built by the SAME parts, and more than likely use the SAME engine, except it is rebranded.. Just like the HPI .21 and .25 engines are Ofna Force engines.
