Description

This is a Mini-500 helicopter. Yes, a real helicopter capable of carrying one person. It is brand new and never been flown (never had the main rotor blades installed): finished in the late 90's. It was sold as a kit by the Revolution Helicopter factory and we find that only about 500 were sold. It is very well constructed with a Rotax 582 engine with PEPS system. The bad part is this little chopper is dangerous and has a poor safety record, partly due to the fact that the Rotax engine was not designed for a helicopter: other engines, including a gas turbine, have been used. I will give a full disclosure to any purchaser about the inherent problems we are aware of. What it would be great for is learning to hover, which is a large step in flying any helicopter. The kit alone ran about $32,000 and then you had to spend hundreds of hours assembling it. Being sold as is, where is for cash. Go to www.bidslo.com and select the auction button.
