You're very welcome. I drooled over X-Cells way back when, but couldn't afford them. Now, they can be had, dirt cheap. Long live the flybar!

Thank you and you're welcome.

Some would disagree. I'm not one of those people.

The 1001 shown above was recently acquired and in desperate need of TLC. I had to tear it down completely and rebuild it, too. She has the wire tail drive and note the wood blades.

Risky flying without parts support
How are you guy's flying these heli's with minimum parts support & after so many uses how often does the dampers get replaced just curious as I have a Fury extreme & haven't had it out in years because I'm afraid I won't be able to get any replacement parts

There is parts support. MinAir (Germany) has stated that they are supporting the older models, not just the Whiplash/Fury55.

Fly the Extreme. Fly it often. I have one as a "test airframe" to test electronics and engines. I'm about to get it up. Got a Stratus I'm converting to FBL at the moment, too. Machines this good can't be kept down!

Miniature Aircraft is alive and well in Germany, now. As for me, I have enough parts for another 3 or 4 old X-Cells, thanks to other RunRyder members. Also, many parts or whole helis can be purchased on Ebay.

If it hasn't flown in years what is the difference between that and having it busted up and sitting in a box somewhere?

The older I get, the fewer things seem worth waiting in line for.

Exactly !!
It was manufactured to be flown and enjoyed
If you dont fly it its about as useful as **** on a bull

ageing is manditory maturity is optional
