First off let me apologize for the length of this post. There is a lot of stuff here and I wanted to make sure I gave a good description.I have for sale a Predator SE gasser heli. The heli was bought new last spring and has for the most part only been hovered with a little forward flight. For the most part it is a stock kit with the following upgrades. servo tray stiffeners, heavy duty tail rotor gear box output shaft and the V2 heavy duty clutch upgrade. The stock V1 heavy duty clutchbell that came witht the kit had a slight wooble and was replaced by Century with a new V2 heavy duty clutch and fan hub.
As stated the rest of the heli is stock. It is the aluminum frame version with a stock Zenoah G231PUH. The rotor head has been built with a set of X-cell ProII flybar padles that are weighted, the muffler is the Century V3 muffler which seems to add some power and make for a nice quiet heli. It has the stock aircleaner to protect the engine from sucking in any dirt and has always been run with it. The tailboom is the stock aluminum 855mm HD version and the tail boom support struts are the heavy duty carbon fiber ones from the kit.The electronis in the heli include Hitec servos for the cyclics as well as the throttle. All are digital servo and were bought new with the kit last spring. The servos are : HS6635 on the throttle and three HS6965 servos for the cyclics. The Gyro is a Futaba GY502 that has been converted to a GY601. It evens says GY601 when booting up and the only difference between it and a stock GY601 is the lettering on the sensor and the amp. The tail rotor servo is a Futaba stock GY601 S9251 digital tail servo that is only been flow for about two months ( not even 2 dozen flights ). There is also a Futaba GV-1 governor installed using the stock sensor pointed at the magnet in the Zenoah flywheel. This setup has worked great and has never given me a single problem. Also fitted is a german voltage regulator rated at 10 Amps. It has adjustable output and has two LEDs thar flash different colors to tell you your battery level and warn of a low battery. The receiver in the heli is a Futaba R319 synthesized 9 channel receiver that has maybe three dozen flights on it. The receiver has a Deans two piece whip antenna attached to it. I have used the Deans antennas in all my helis and have never had a single range or glitch issue. The battery in the heli is a Duralite 7.4 volt Lithium Ion 4300 mah pack that was installed when I bought the receiver. The battery and the regulator a joined by heavy guage wire and heavy duty Deans connectors to combat voltage loss.
The heli is also outfitted with 105mm carbon fiber tail blades, 700mm carbon fiber main blades and a removable pull start. It has a stock fiberglass canopy decorated with the kit stickers.
For the most part the heli has been mostly hovered and moved around at a walking pace with a little forward flight.It has never been crashed and has always been well taken care of. I have kept it so clean it does not even look like it was ever flown. The Zenoah G231 runs great and has about 9 gallons of 87 octane gas through it. The engine and heli have been very reliable ever since it was completed. The nice thing about a gasser is all you need to fly is a fuel tank of mixed gas, you transmitter and the heli with the pull start. a fuel tank of gas gives you about 30 to 40 minutes of flying time depending on the type of flying.
Included with the heli is a Futaba T9ZHP WCII 9 channel transmitter. The heli is programmed into this radio. The transmitter has had a recent checkup at Futaba and was given a clean bill of health. The TX has a 1100 mah battery installed and comes with a spare 1100 mah battery that has only been charger about 8 times. Also included with the TX is the stock Futaba 9Z aluminum case, two red neck straps, a Model Avionics Skytach for check rotor speed, Hanger 9 digital variable load meter for testing the Duralite battery in the heli ( or any other battery ). It has .5, 1 & 2 amp seeting for the load.Also installed in the TX is a Hanson Hobbies 256K memory module. The module expands the 9Zs memory up to 16x4 plus the stock 10 memories. In short a possible 42 model memories ( depending on the number of flight conditions used ).Also included will be a full tool set for the heli. The tool set is a X-Cell delux heli tool set that includes Wiha screwdrivers, allen wrenches, ball drivers, sockets wrenches, allen keys, ball link pliers, glow pug wrench, Zenoah spark plug wrench, fan puller for Century gasser fan, JR ball link sizing tool, X-Cell paddle guages & pitch guage as well as number of small metric wrenches and a 2mm tapping dies with handle. All the tools are in good shape. Just about every tool you need to build a heli is here. I will even include a Dubro balancer ( not pictured ). The case for the tools was originally pink ( I hate pink ) and I repainted it red with some Krylon Fusion plastic paint. It is coming off in a few spots but could be touched up. Also included is the Hanger 9 fuel pump I was using to fuel the heli and the gas can fittings.Also included with the heli will be the following new in the package spare parts and some other parts ect:

I really hate to sell it as out of all the helis I have owned this has been the most enjoyable one and has been trouble free.I would like to sell this as a package deal but if it does not sell as package deal in a couple of weeks I may consider breaking it up.
I am asking $2600 shipped for everything. Considering everything that is included and the fact it is all in good shape I feel this is a good deal for someone.
If anyone wants anymore pics or has any questions please feel free to ask. ***THE PACKAGE DEAL HAS BEEN SOLD*** Wayne Reid
