Purchased from Golojoe two months ago and in the air. A Heim Star Ranger helicopter. What an awesome machine. Webra .60 with the Dynamix carb and a tuned pipe. Spektrum AR7000 receiver and Futaba 401 gyro. Flying weight is 9 1/2 LB. Smooth and fast. Amazing to think this head configuration was designed in the 70's.

One word!
Beautiful!!! Absolutely Beautiful!

Oh..We have had the best day so far this winter and I went to our strip with my whole family - me, mother and three kids! Had three great 10 minute flights on my Baron20! I love the little thing!

What was amazing was to watch Ewald Heim do NOE flying with a Star Ranger no more than 5 feet off of the deck back in the 80's.

Looks Great! I used the same fuse for my Bell 407. Nice to see another one out there.

NOE (s**t Sherlock)....
