very nice find!


I have a UH-1B from Unique Models in Dalton, GA.
It is identical to your older Hirobo Huey.

I converted my mechanics to electric using a homemade motor mount and it flies really nice. Only issue I had was with tail rotor and moving up to 105mm tail blades cured that.

Hi Sgt Sant
never mind that one I mentioned as I found you a better deal.
A guy I know is selling it. Besides being a great guy, Jim is very honest and a former Vietnam helo pilot.

He is selling the same 800 size Huey as this thread started talking about. it is a brand new kit and he only wants $450.00.


He will be the Southern Scale Heli meet in Dalton, GA and can bring it there and deliver in person since he lives in Phoenix, AZ now I think.

since you are in TN, if you want to see about 100 beautiful scale helicopters and meet a great bunch of guys, you need to come to this heli meet.

sent you a PM with all the info.

let me know if you need any further info.
