Please Tell Us...
Hi bigdad390,

That first Legend video shows a pilot I once knew: Peter Cook. He's the one in the blue/green shirt and shorts at the beginning of the clip. One very talented pilot back in the late 1980's - early '90's and was a team GPM pilot until their company folded.

What is the source and location of those clips? Can you provide any more details?

THX!

It was completely intentional-the first few were bent around Mr. Gorham's knee...

I'm not 100% sure what I have here but i'll bet you guys do. I'm new to helis and this was given to me if I wanted to fix it up. I'm going to, sounds cool to have an old school heli. I need a couple parts for it if I can find them i'll be in business. I'm new and not sure if the pics will work but i'm trying.

GMP
hi fabmaster!
In my eyes that thing looks like the GMP Competitor...Great flying machine they say. I've got the Hirobo Falcon555 which is very much the same thing. A few differences is that mine has belt start and angled rotor yoke eg. coning main rotor...
Many of the guys here have parts for this so you should be getting far with it.
Sheldonshobbies on ebay does have quite a few parts for GMP too!

As these guys said, it is a GMP Competitor with the Pro head. Good flying machine, I've had a few of them. Let us know what you need for parts, I have quite a few laying around, even a couple complete machines.

Thank You
Great everyone thanks for responding so quick. I'm actually pretty new to helis and a friend gave this to me if i'd be willing to put it back together. I have a Blade 400 that I can fly on a very limited basis, no 3D for me. Yet. Right now this heli has a GY 501 Gyro and JR NES L401 servos for everything except the tail which is Futaba S131SH. I guess this Gyro will be sufficient. I would like some servo recommendations if anyone has any. Now to the hard part, I need Flybars and the cast aluminum piece on top of the head that the Flybars go into. I'll give it a good going over today and see if I can find anything else missing or broken. What blades do ya'll recommend as the ones on her are cracked.

GMP Competitor
My Falcon555 is actually flying OK on the old JR NES-something standard servos which sat in it when I picked it up. I only switched the old JR gyro for a GY-401...The heli itself got a total cleanup/rebuild and of it went! ...Well I guess you GMP has a 60 engine where mine has a OS45FSR...
Someday my wallet will allow me to put in some new servos and I'll be going for Futaba S-3010 or similar...my old Cricket has been treated to 4 of them...
On the other side, that particular chopper might not be a good beginners choice based on the parts availability.
I've been into the heli part of the hobby since '87 when I got my first Schluter Champion which I sold in '93 due to problems getting parts for it...up until today I've had a lot of different machines (and still have) but I didn't learn to fly very well before the T-rex450 came along. Today good choppers are relatively cheap, fly well and your wallet doesn't catch fire as you watch it disappear below the horizon
So my ideal is to keep the oldies for sunday-cozy-flappin-around and the choppers of today for hard core fun!

Competitor
One thing that I think will be cool is everyone has all the popular 3d helis and this will be kind of original at the field.
