Lakota UH-72 600 Size Helicopter Scale Conversion Kit from Roban - RBN-KF145MIL6

The Eurocopter UH-72 Lakota is a twin-engine helicopter with a single, four-bladed main rotor.  The UH-72 is a militarized version of the Eurocopter EC145.  This is the 600 size Lakota UH-72 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.

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 fuselage provides plenty of room for owners to fully customize to their heart's desire.  The kit includes metal landing gear and a raised torque tube drive system.  This fuselage has full open door design including pilot, side and cargo doors using the scale door joint hinges.  The fuselage is carefully designed utilizing computer 3D renderings and CNC molds providing extreme detail and precision scale panel lines.  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.  This fuselage includes all the tail gear you need to convert your TrexESP to the raised tail system.


  • Fully painted fiberglass scale fuselage
  • Metal landing gear and 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


  • Roban Lakota UH-72 600 body kit


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.

Very good quality, and very large for a 600 size

As soon as I got the "In Stock" email I popped on this one, I love the lines on the UH-72 and with the raised tail it's almost as large as a 700. The kit was well packaged and had no damage at all, not even a scuff. The kit went together nicely with the only fitting I had to was for the swash guilde. I have a complete build thread on Hobbysquawk. TiredIronGRB

I think it is awesome

But when dewhite from Creech chevy Buick Pontiac GMC dealership call you for information you should talk them into making it fly. Because they only think it’s for show not to fly around. Because they don’t know how to fix the tail roater the correct way. But don’t tell them I told you.
