The Heli-Boy had been developed with new type rotor head, swashplate and tail assembly and the revised version, to be brought out in 1983 was initially know as the Heli-Boy - Superior.  However, as the Heli-Boy standard was also to be kept in the model range it was decided not use the Heli-Boy reference and to call the revised version just by the name Superior.  The model also featured a canopy that fully enclosed the mechanics thus providing better streamlining to give smoother aerobatics and also differentiated the model from the basic 'pod' of the Heli-Boy.
