Default Received a nitro helicopter, but I can't identify it (I'm a total noob)

Hello everyone, thank you for taking the time to read my post. I have no experience with RC helicopters, but recently received (what I assume to be) a nitro helicopter. I have googled every code I could find, but they were all for parts (like the engine or receiver).

Here is a list of codes I found:
The flappy things near where the rotors should be say: XL-pro II
The engine says: YS 61-s
The gyro amp says GY502
The receiver says: Futaba PCM1024
The battery says: 4N11800SCE SANYO KR1800SCE TYPICAL CAPACITY 2000mAh

I tried turning it on but the screen showed low battery. My questions are:

How can I identify the make and model (especially if I can't post pictures)?
Where can I find a compatible charger, remote control and rotors? (They were sadly not included)
Where do I start looking to get this thing back to life?

Everything I've googled leads me to believe this is not at all a beginners helicopter, but I would love to get it working so I can see where I go from there.

Thanks in advance!

It sounds like the head and possible the helicopter is made by X Cell. Maybe you can do a google image search on X Cell helicopters and determine the model and or size of it.

MA XL Pro II looks like a style or model of a head assembly made by X Cell.

The motor is made by YS and is a .61 size. The motors are typically made by a different manufacture than the heli.
The radio receiver and Gyro (electronics) are Futaba. The Gyro is an older style but should work fine.

This is not a beginner heli and you would need the help of an experiacnced heli person to help you get it setup.

A google search resulted in a FaceBook group dedicated to those helis.

Search for
"X
-Cell R/C Helicopters Pre 2000"
