Default GMP Competitor

I flew a GMP Competitor many years ago. Had a bad crash eventually and tucked it into the corner of my shop, intending, one day, to rebuild it. Currently I'm flying a LiteMachines and I like the little guys so much, I don't think I'll ever get the Competitor going again. Purely for the sake of nostalgia, does anyone think there's any value in such a machine? Spare main gear and starter belts are included.

Needs main blades and new tail rotor blade grips. On this one, I made a unique, brass tube tail drive with U-joints. Worked well. Also, the sloppy bushings they gave you were replaced with custom, tight fitting units.

I know it's old and obsolete but you never know.

Jim,

Yes, the Competitor is for sale.

Pics attached.

As mentioned, no main blades and tail blade grips are broken but also, no canopy/cowl. However, the main gear is virtually new along with the new, spare one. This was a weak area with the Competitor. It had small, fine, spiral gear teeth and you had to be very sure you got the mesh just right.
