A Hi to everyone from a not so sunny and warm Spain today.
Many years ago (80s) while working in Muscat I bought a couple of Schluters. I had to disassemble them to get them home at the end of my contract. A year or 10 later I put the smallest one (Helibaby) back together, Finished building and testing my RC Tx and took it to a local flying field. I managed to persuade one of the guys flying a modern, for then Heli to test fly it. It flew but the guy said it was terrible and to bin it. I didn't and I managed to get it off the ground a few times before losing it against my windsurfer, with disastrous results mainly for the board. The Heli was put away, undergoing house moves and almost forgotten until recent times. While packing for the nth time I came across the bits, Helibaby, Miniboy and Heliboy. I Have decided to sort out the Helibaby and clean up the bits of the others with an aim to sell them to finance the bits required for the Helibaby.
I have a choice of motors 2 x OS50, an NGK46 and an MVVS77, was thinking of using them on petrol given the price of glow fuel and necessary cleaning post flying.

The helibaby is the first one I flew. The reason the guy couldn't fly it is because he did not know how to control it, very different than modern units. Put some lighter paddles on it to speed up the cyclic. and run the head speed fairly high to get good TR authority. Your heliboy and and mini boy can be good flyers.
