The button came with Dubro helis.

You guys are the best! This button came with a Dubro 505. Button outlasted the heli BIG TIME!!! Wonder if there's mention in "Ray's Manual" on balancing a spinning K&B 40! LOL! Those were the days!

Bring'm Back!

I just received a small batch of reproduction (metal) buttons of the "Whirlybug Bit Me" and will have them at IRCHA 2008 next week. It won't be too tough to find me, just listen for the sound of one or EVEN TWO Du-Bro Whirlybird 505s flying at the same time I'll be piloting one of them. East end of the flightline.

C Ya There!
