Collector... Welcome to RunRyder. Do you have a larger picture? I suppose I'm looking at an engine casting.?.? Possibly from a gasser?

Welcome to RR

Click here for Helicopter Parts Diagram

Your photo stands out as the letters "MK" (to me), which could mean MARK but no clue on brand or maker.

That part you describe may be the HUB where the blade grips attach to.

As stated, a "whole heli" photo might help.

Looking for parts for such?

I am sure that is the logo for the Morley Helicopter company that were manufactured in the U.K. Many years ago. We did not see too many of them on this side of the Atlantic. I still have one of their Augusta A109A models. The retract system on it is priceless. The side gear doors open, the gear extend and then the side gear doors close, just like the real ones.

Agreed with Oldfart above, that is indeed the logo of Morley Helicopters originally produced in the UK.

When Jim Morley retired, Quick UK took over production for a short time.

You can see the Morley logo quite clearly on the packet of new tail blades I bought just a couple of weeks ago.

Morley are no longer in production but there are quite a few Morley's still about (and spares). I have 5 of them ...2 x A109's, A Huey UH1-B, a Maverick and lastly the Morley Lynx which you see in the pics. (This has the Morley MXA Mechanics which it was designed for) I am in the process of finishing this one off now.

Morley helicopter

Thank you to all for the help identifying my helicopter. I will post some more pictures of it later as well as the other vintage helicopters I have picked up in my 40 years of playing with rc and collecting. I just got a schluter twin star as355 with a 60" fuselage that was built very nicely and never used in a collection I bought. I have only flown smaller electric choppers but love the big ones to display in my hobby room. Maybe some day I will try to fly one of my large choppers. Thanks again I appreciate your knowledge

That's a nice tidy example of a classic machine, you did well to get that one.

Would be nice to see it in the air.

I don't want to sell this schluter I just got. I hope I did not pay to much for it. When I saw it I had to have it so I shot from the hip when I made my offer. Can anyone tell me what it is approximately worth? I would say it is a solid 8.5 on a 1 to 10 scale. Thank you
