You should fly it. You will find it a good canidate for the Ranger.
Is the start system a retracting plunger assembly? If it is, it is heavy. Does it have the plastic lower frame stiffner or the aluminium rail? The plastic is heavier than the aluminium rail.
The GF had the option of right or left rotation rotor. Could be a good option for that scale bird. Also the tail can be driven or not, which ever you prefer. You can put an SE main shaft in it for more collective travel if you don't put it in the Ranger.
It really is a nice machine.

I just got it today, you werent kidding its heavy. It does have the plunger start, but has a one way bearing at the top and not the cone. Everything for the frame is plastic except the two sides. 6 pounds with no electronics, motor, exhaust or fuel. Should be a very docile machine, it needs wiped down but looks brand new. I like some of these older heli's. It does have the driven tail and is right hand rotation, I like it.

It only takes a few in-expensive parts to do away with the plunger. The plunger does not have a one-way bearing in it. If you leave that start system on it you need to have a starter wand with the one-way bearing in it. The plunger goes down and engages the engine and after it starts it retracts. The plasic lower frame brace is heavy and can be replaced by the SE aluminium rail. The engine is not as easy to remove with the rail. Did it come with the plans? A good look at them would enlighten you alot. You can also change the damper cups for two or three O-Ring dampers and get 90 durometer O-Rings at Rick's for a stiffer dampening system. It should already have the center ball in the head.

I downloaded the plans off of robbeusa but they didnt have the manual. I'm telling you there is a small one way bearing in top of the start shaft, it may not belong ther, but its there. I am going to have to get a piece of paper and pen and write down everything your telling me, I think most of the parts I will have to get from midlands. Some maybe from ricks.
