Pm s answered and in general yes this is authentic. I had 2 and this one was never finished. I purchased it as you see it except for the custom shaft and auto rotation hub I made.

That appears to be the Shuco-Hegi version (second version) and looks to be in very good condition!

The original version (of which I understand there were not too many) had a metal transmission case and some differences in the fuselage.

There is more information on them here.

Either is pretty difficult to find these days. It took me about 30 years to locate one.

They are a piece of history!

dont have enough info to dispute U. The x sold my flying example several years ago. If memory serves it originally had a metal box that was seized when I bought it from local hobby shop. The accessory box had 2 plastic pto trannies one of which is shown in the pics above our bug. I can only remark that hovering the beast with a veco 61 and no gyro was.....an experience. Never flew a circuit with that one.
regards.

I don't anticipate ever finishing it so hopefully someone will. It's honestly taking up space but my OP was probably driven by sellers remorse letting one of my DDF Eagle's go.

madgadget,

Either version is a great collector's item.

If I had not found the one I have a few years ago, I would be buying the one you are advertising.

I did read that someone is making parts for it again as well.

You have a great helicopter for sale-someone will be very lucky to get it!
