A family friend passed away, his wife gave me his helicopter. UPS delivered it today. Well, I did not get a lot LOL

The Heli is a Koyosho EP Concept. Its got a 34.750" rotor span. I have to way to ID
the Heli more than that. The Heli is in like new condition. I did find that this model is no longer made. The motor is a Yoyosho Lemans AP36 with brushes. IT has a Futaba MC 114H motor speed controller. The (4) servos are not marked in any way, unknown manufacturer. I need your help to figure out what I need to get this in the air. I have tried searching, but I am on a 24.4K dial up remote in the Mts. Lots of searching is not really a option at that connect speed. My Questions;

Its dangerous, but I am 'assuming' that since the speed controller is Futaba, the unmarked servos probably are also ?

What receiver/transmitter ld I buy that will work with the Futaba MC 114H speed controller and the servos. The servos have a 3 wire plug. I would like to buy a used radio if possible.

What battery pack should I buy ?

Can anyone supply a link to where I can find a original manual for setup etc.

I realize this Heli is 'old iron' But the price was right, I want to get it in the air and
learn to fly before I invest a lot of bucks in current tech heli's. Its been decades since I taught my self to fly fixed wing RC. This is a new adventure LOL !

Thanks for your help

Do yourself a hugh favor and spend the money on a decent sim before you try to fly that thing.

Besides your going to have a hard time finding repair parts as well.

It does sound interesting but make sure you can get repair parts before you invest money. Even a light crash may require the following parts be replaced - the main shaft, tail shaft, boom, feathering shaft and main gear.

I understand the problem on spare parts. I figure if I can find a cheap radio and batteries, I have little invested for a trainer. I am not fussy even if its a older radio as I will only be flying on my own very remote property. SO what can you guys suggest for a radio that will work with the existing servos and speed controller. I can even use a 6 meter radio as I am a licensed extra class amateur. And a battery suggestion please. Cheap is the key on this old bird.

Thanks
