Leaving the Scale world and have had my fun with these, Pictures tell the story, so here it is, first is the Blue 500e a Vario / Heim ccpm composite frame with full metal / composite center head with full metal rear, all carbon/glass painted main blades and tail, old style wire driven tail which could be changed out for tube. Airtronic servos with metal gears along with with a 61 Weber with pro carb, (should be replaced for a 90 for comfort), body is compete Kevlar with Klass Kote paint. This has been in storage for some time. The second is an Airstar Mongoose with a 29cc Zenoah gas engine. Has a zimmmermann side mount silencer and exhaust tube extention . Has Mah 810 Carbon painted blades and painted carbon tails. It has the Airstar dual output rc generator for charging the RX battery and running the two cooling fans. Futaba gy401 gyro/servo set 4 Futaba 9550 digitals on head with Futaba 9202 for throttle. Rx battery is a 4500 nimh. 1/4 scale custom painted 500e shell in the LA County Sheriff scheme with over 3000 rivets, full lighting kit, all scale antennas, grab handles, cable cutters on top and bottom, FLIR camera, night sun (operational but not hooked up) and detailed cockpit with pilot and side windows. Both are very smooth flying and giving them away for $2800.00, OBO sold as a pair. More detail if need, flying link on YouTube under fatair96 and can be viewed in Cypress if needed. The pictures tell the true size of each 500e. So look at the link for all the pictures, http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/thumbgallery.php?do=showattach&u=230853

Helis look very nice. I have to ask why such a low price? Would/are you able to ship them? Are you willing to spilt them up? If so, id definately be interested in the 1/4 scale airstar. Have you flown it recently? Any problems you are aware of?

These haven't been flown for about 6 months and nothing other than adding you RX. The price is because I fill it's fair and I'd like to get an FS4, also I've had my fun with them and it's time to move on, that simple. You can take the Vario and piece it out for extra change, your choose? The shipping is possible but as you can see it's large so you let me know what you have in mind, bus I don't know?

I had a chance to inspect the helis yesterday and I can testify that they are exactly as described and seen in the pictures. The big one is absolutely beautiful with lots of scale details. Unfortunately they are a little too complicated for me to handle due to my limited experience with Vario mechanics and highly detailed scale models. I called & talked to Joseph, owner of Airstar International which helped build the 1/4 scale 500E, and he vouched to its excellent build quality. Airstar also sells a 5 bladed rotor head which would further improve the scale appearance of the big 500E. Who ever is the lucky buyer would be very happy with this purchase!
Thanks Steve for showing the helis and good luck with selling them. Thanh Cung
