Just completed, Thanks "tutlar" for the instruction manual & everyone for help finding some missing replacement parts. Of the six kits I have built (gas / nitro / elect.) This is by far the most fun build ever. I have 106 detailed pics if anyone is intrested. OH and thanks to Augusto of Avant for letting me talk him out of this kit.

Outstanding job.

One mile of road will take you one mile. One mile of runway will take you anywhere in the world.

Wow! What a flood of good memories that brought back. Back then it took me weeks of evenings to build a kit. Mine had the tube style muffler and the hose clamp to hold it on. My cabin was red. But other than that it was just like the one here, for about a month. Then I started flight training and bent the landing gear every time I tried to land it. Hop,hop, ect. I remeber using my transmitter antenna to check static tracking. Yes I love your new helicopter. TimT

That is a thing of beauty. I was so proud of mine. It was a big deal to get one in the air and still makes me smile when I see yours.

Planefxr, that is one beautiful Heliboy. Your choice of color and the way you polished all the metal pieces really makes it shine! Thanks for the memories! I still have a HeliStar that I am building. I think I am going to take my time and polish every thing also.

Brings back memories of several years of frustration! Had one back in the late 70s, but never got more than an accidental hover. I'd dearly love to be able to try a Heliboy again, after finally learning basic heli piloting skills.

How well do these things fly, compared to a Raptor 50? I wonder - now - if my problem then was mostly the pilot (me) - or the machine? I did see my Heliboy fly in the hands of an experienced pilot, so I guess it worked OK for him.

When I first flew the Helistar it was the most stable helicopter at the time. I learned quickly. Actually I could hold a hover for an entire tank on the first flight.

I have also flown the Heliboy which was not much different in flight characteristic. Maybe some minor mechanical differences.

A 60 size helicopter will always be more stable than a 50 size helicopter if properly setup.

The Raptor 50 is a gem. It is probably one of the easiest helicopter to build and fly successfully. The Schluter machines require a little more patience and tinkering to get to fly right. Once you set them up they fly beautifully.
