Shape S8 from Shape Heli


The Shape S8 is a genuine 800 electric helicopter and a pioneer in this still young segment of model helicopters.

With a rotor diameter of 1795 mm, the helicopter has a huge appearance and makes everything else look small. Despite its enormous size, it was developed without having to compromise on stability and agility. This is reflected, for example, in the extremely massive main gear and a freewheel with a diameter of 20 mm.

There are currently no known performance limits. The Heli is superior to all conventional drive systems in this class. Even very light and energy-saving setups from 6 kg take-off weight can be realized thanks to the sophisticated design. The helicopter is therefore suitable for every requirement; from the recreational flyer to the 3D competition pilot.


  • Oval solid tail tube in teardrop shape with internal tail linkage
  • Push-pull linkage to relieve the swashplate servos due to the extremely high actuating forces
  • 140° swashplate for particularly precise control (120° version also available as an option)
  • All aluminium parts anodized for optimum visual durability and a high-quality appearance.
  • Carbon parts made from high-quality solid material
  • Pinion with integrated counter bearing journal, so motors with a short shaft can also be used (max. 32 mm motor shaft length)
  • Easy installation and maintenance of the motor using three screws from above
  • Hood in airbrush design available in many color combinations.
