Problem is parts availability.

Love that heli though, the first one I had that I actually got somewhere with.

If the motor and servos are still OK. Then just change the batterypack and maybe get a decent heading lock gyro (GY240 or similar) I'd personally give it a full strip and re-build and see if any parts are siezed or perished though. As cuda says, parts are hard to find now. Great heli though I learnt to fly on a SR-T and still have a flying example in the hangar. Only comes out on special occasions though :-)

I also have one that I have flown for over 15yrs. I put it in a fuse and just do scale flying with it. If you just fly non 3d you can use the gyro you have. I have many old birds and fly them only doing easy safe stuff (no knee knock) because parts are hard to get. For 3d flying I'd get a bird that is still in production. Just my 2 cents.
