I couldnt afford one of these in the 80's so i had a Morley gold gyro in a M.F.A sport 500 fixed pitch. The only thing that remains now is the Morley gold gyro and its still working!

If it doesnt move and its meant too... use WD 40. If it moves and its not meant too...use duct tape!

Yea, it was pretty cool when I powered these up to test them. The spool up sound was great to hear again.

I remember those. I also remember the couple times I forgot to turn them on before taking off. Now that was a rush,

Sheesh, you guys talk like they are old or something. I am still using some in my GMP machines. They work ok for just flying around in a scale like fashion. I'm too old to learn that flip-flop 3D stuff! Brain can't keep up.
