WOW, the good ol Rebel, I had one of those back in 1989,that is what I learned on. Ebay is a good place to start but honestly, unless it has sentimental value, it really isn't worth flying. you should easily be able to find some substitute booms, just take yours to the local hobby shop and see what is the right diameter, as for length, cut to fit. heck I used PVC pipe on mine since I went thru so many booms learning.
But again before I would fix and Fly the rebel I would find something else a Old Raptor, Hawk etc, anything

Agreed. If it werent for sentimental value, there would be no way I would be out there flying a GMP Cricket for example (the little brother to the Rebel). I actually took it off the cieling, charged it, gassed it up and flew it the day before yesterday!

It flys like big fat heavy fixed pitch Walkera, but heck, it's still fun to do, and it re-connects you with those early days of the hobby.

If the idea here is to get those few missing parts to make the Rebel airworthy, the most effective way to do that these days is to buy a whole Rebel off of eBay and cannabalize that for spares. Almost impossible to find individual components through word of mouth or otherwise these days.

These guys are the only place I know that still makes anything for the Rebel:

Good Luck!
