The date on the photo confuses me.

The heli and the carpet color both say early 80's

It does look like it would be a lot of fun to fly though.

Sounds like were cooking with gas....

Wow. Ummmmmm. That's ugly!

But if you painted it orange with white stripes - it (the full scale, blue heli) would look like Nemo !

Saturday morning I flew my helicopter in my pajamas
How it got in my pajamas I'll never know

I know it's only psychological, but every time I see a real heli with the blades sagging under their own weight like that it doesn't instill confidence. I guess a little sag doesn't bother me too much, but that one seems a bit excessive...

It's a complex, costly, glow powered anti-gravity machine!

That one guy didn't poop again for two weeks.
Using cargo neeting under the skids is very dangerous. If the chopper slids backwards it might get hung up in the skids, then its holy ****z

I think about the hereafter. I go somewhere to get something, then wonder what I'm here after ?

First one is a Hegi-Schluter. (classic - floats were popular training gear). Second one is the Dubro Tri-Star as seen on the box. My Dad had both models. Never built the Schluter. He'd already built and flown the original Hegi-Schluter Cobra. In fact, I think it was the first one Tower Hobbies imported in the U.S. for retail sale.

There were several fuses for the Dubro Tri-Star (as there were also for the Schluter .60 sized mechanics). The original stocker was a Rotorway Scorpion Too canopy. Modeled after the full scale side by side two seater home-built kit copter. Dad had the Tri-Star (.40 glow sized) with the Scorpion canopy, as well as a few other fuses for his. He had a lot of fun playing with his Tri Star. He also had the full scale Rotorway Scorpion chassis...I think it's still in the back of his garage...unfortunately, he never built it. My addiction is, after all, his fault.
