Cricket restoration
Back when i was about 7 I remember my dad having an old cricket he used to try to fly in the backyard. Last winter my LHS called me to help a local guy that came in the store (he had no idea there was an R/C field 5 minutes from his house). So I stopped at his house one night and gave him a hand with his mx 400. He starts telling me about how he used to fool with helis back in the early eightes but never had any luck. 20 minutes later im leaving his house with a vintage Cricket ! He just gave it to me for helping him. Will post pics as soon as i get some.

Tail blade grips
Motor mounts (can make if anyone has specs)
Also the complete clutch assembly is missing (except start cone)
If anyone has these please let me know i will gladly pay.

Also what is everybody using for blades and paddles ?

Hi herby8860:

Not too long ago, I was going through the same process you are now. Found out there was not too much info out there on the Cricket. There used to be a fan club website which dissapeared a few years ago called the "Cricket Connection". Well,after a few months of gathering information, and finally building and flying my "new" cricket, we were able to put up a new and improved website. This was designed to be the absolute #1 all-inclusive place for GMP Cricket info:

http://www.1017.org/cricket/

If you have any Cricket questions now answered on that website, PM me and I will try to find out the answer (and perhaps add that to the website).

Here's the building and setup hints page:

Good Luck and keep us posted with your progress!

Marc

Parts your looking for
Hi,
As MarcW said his site is great for all the information you need. I also have a site [url=http://www.mphelis.com] where I do consignment lots of heli parts and also do remanufactured parts.
I currently have some Cricket blade sets and paddles all original GMP. The site changes as we get more stuff in and remanufactured so I send a newsletter to everyone that has registered on the site letting them know whats up.

Good Luck with your Cricket,
Adam
