Got the Cricket tweaked just right with a larger carb on the K&B 3.5. Man is she running sweet! What a great little helicopter. I love it.

Cricket was my first heli which I bought from mike mas back in the early 80s.

It is patiently waiting to be rebuilt

EDIT: I mistyped and it's misleading. I bought my first helicopter, a Cricket, from Mike Mas.
the one I have now is not the same one but one I bought last year and it is waiting to be rebuilt

LOL... I know...

I have too many projects going at once...
BUT, this morning I put in my notice to my bosses that my last day of work will be December 30th

life is passing me by and my health is not as good as it used to be so it's time to stop working and start playing

What was the differences between the Cricket and Rebel, or was Rebel just
a newer version? Always seeing stuff about the crickets but don't hear much
about the other. Seems very similar to me..yeah, Rebel was my first heli

Is the boom bent on there Heli143, or is that a stock 'sweep-up? Sure brings back memories........

Rebel was a 40 size heli cricket was a 25-30 size engine...so physically it was a bigger heli. I have one and it definitely flys better then the Cricket

Boom is bent on purpose from the factory
