Get To Know "SYLPHIDE 90"
SYLPHIDE known to be the “FAIRY OF THE WIND”, will manage the wind at your will and bring you great victory.
SYLPHIDE is the first model helicopter to use the new open transmission system developed by JR. Power units are enclosed by CNC machined aluminium and enable the Sylphide to completely demonstrate the high performance of 90 class engines. All the transmission gears are of a helical cut type. These gears offer precise power transfer from the 90 class engine and reduce the noise from the transmission during flight.
The Sylphide 90, which evolved from the F3C model Superio, is the flagship model in the JR helicopter range.
Needless to say, the high grade carbon parts, like the Main Frame, tail boom, and tail brace tube are equipped for increased rigidity and lighter weight. It also features JR CCPM control for direct powerful controls.
The newly developed open-type power transmission device and direct control system provides more efficient power transfer and more precise control. By carefully matching the engine, mechanics and radio system, the Sylphide will fully satisfy the needs of the advanced pilot more than any other helicopter.
Since the time that the Sylphide came out in the market, the said heli slowly made its way up to one of the best RC helicopters that flyers has ever flown. Heli flyers who have tried and tested the Sylphide all believe that this is one of the best, even if it is expensive. For them, its worth the price!!

World class heli flyer, Scott Gray have been using Sylphide 90 for the past few years now, winning one World Championship after another. Here is what he can say about the said heli:
“This model has been top of the F3C world for over four years. It has won 1,2,3 at the Spain World Championships, 1, 2 at Poland World Championships, US National titles, and Japan National titles among others. Throughout this long stretch of time it has proven itself to be the most mechanically robust and advanced design on the precision F3C heli scene”.
“Its design including the unique solid aluminum transmission block and integrated engine mount makes this a very powerful combination. Engine performance is greatly aided by this rigid structure of metal and the result is extra power that is not wasted by heat and vibration of other components and frames. It has proven to be the highest quality helicopter and lowest maintenance machine I have ever used”.
The Super Gracy fuselage is fitted to allow very quiet and fast flight for F3C competition. I have modified special low profile aluminum landing gear to this body and set the gear inside the body to reduce drag. My original color scheme has been designed to custom fit the fuselage and automotive clear-coated for protection and overall wet look. This color scheme is now offered by JR Heli Division Part No. 6xxxxx.
This helicopter reaches speeds over 115mph and is always a popular sight to see fly at events. In addition to flying it through the FAI-F3C schedules, I often demonstrate this machine’s capabilities with high-speed low level aerobatic flight.
Changes to this model have been few since the last World Championships. Mainly a noted improvement in precision and feel was due to the change over to 2.4ghz JR 9303 radio equipment. Newly painted fuselages, and ReactorX regulators installed finished off the machines.
These machines have allowed me to win US Nationals in 2007, and Poland World Championships 2nd place 2007.
