I have a GMP Legend, or so I am told that is what it is. The people I have spoken to about make/model, have told me that it is somewhat of a hybrid. The heli was given to me along with many other RC airplanes and parts and accessories after my grandfather passed away. Most of the loose parts that I had, I gave to a friend of mine and his club locally since there was really no way to identify them. I have 2 of the airplanes that he handmade. I remember him flying the GMP one time about 20 + years ago when he came to visit us when I was about 10 years old or so. I do not think it was flown very much at all because where he lived he did not have near enough room. I took the heli to a local hobby shop a few years ago when I first got it and he told me it was in good shape and could possibly fly as-is. I am afraid if I try to do something like that it could end up in a lot of pieces and I would rather someone have it that will use it or at least have some fun with it. I have held on to it for sentimental reasons, but it is just collecting dust. I am posting pictures in MY Gallery and will try to get them on here as soon as I figure it out. Thank you and God Bless

I do not have a set price on this, as I do not know what it is worth. I would like some feedback on that. I am not looking to make a fortune, but it does have some value and I don't want to give it away.
I will accept PayPal

I got a similar one 20 yrs ago, and it was a "hot" helicopter during that time. You can use JR "60 size" parts. If you need a copy of the manual, I can email that to you. Good bird.

Thank you UAVO, but to be honest I have never even flown an rc helicopter and certainly don't want to "learn" with this one

wholy shizz dude!!!! That's not just a Legend, it's a FLYBARLESS LEGEND!!! They were ahead of their time. Weren't a lot of flybarless heads back then. If I were you, go put something in the Antique section or in another one of the sections (not sure if there's a GMP section).
My guess is you'll get lots of calls on this.
I'd change your header too to mention flybarless.

Yup that was my first 60 heli back in the day. It was a sweet heli. Hot and yes ahead of its time. I flew it for a few years and it was a peach
You needed the grams on the blades to be just what they tell you and it was totaly controlable as any other heli and more manueverable.

I was given the chance to buy mine back still in pristine condition just a few years ago. I wish I had for a keepsake

Very nice !

I've try to tell some of the young guys that you can fly flybarless ....
When I started back in the early seventies...we didn't even know about a gyro or flybarless electronic devices...Heli radio...what was that...lol and also the metal rotor blades that are now outlawed by the AMA and if you look back in their early rule books (heli competition; they make refferance to baning metal rotorblades.

Nice looking heli, my friend...have a bump!!

PS: My first heli kit cost me $125.00 in 1969. It was the hardest thing in the world to fly...ask Mike Mas (first pilot to flyfully inverted with out using the invert switch on the Tx)...that's right the early Tx for heli and planes had an invert switch and it electronically did the change inside of the radio.

Sorry! Didn't mean to hi-jack this post...I'm gone.

I just looked closer at your pics...this heli (at least its' engine) are around the 1985
ventage. I know that this was the second SX engine that OS came out with. The 1st SX only had the low end and high end needles on it. Prior to them is was the OS SFN Black Head engine and a tuned pipe.

So with the engine in it...I'd put it around the mid to late eighties.

What do you want for the whole shooting match?

PM me and LMK

What rubs me wrong a bit is that he teased everyone for a few hours and then threw it up on ebay. At least give the guys here a shot at it since you got a lot of good info from this site.

Horacio, I measured the wingspan twice and it is 56". Also, All the info I got from this site was already known, I had emailed a guy in Texas and sent him pictures and he gave me all the info and that was even after i had put it on Ebay. If you dont trust me , check out the dates of my Ebay edits vs. the dates of my original posts.

Gus, I am sorry, i put it on Ebay first and while I was doing some more research I found this site. Trust me, I wish I had found ya'll first because I would have felt more comfortable with the heli going to an "enthusiast" rather than just anybody.

Thank you and God Bless

it that's all oem u can see a lot of features found on hirobo jr and miniature aircraft. my friend told me back in the 70's if u could just hover u were amaizing due to having to control all we take for granted with gyros and computer radios. it took a lot of work just to hover let alone flying around.
