This bird is in great shape. The frames, main shaft, spindle, T/R shaft, TR bearings, belt are only a few flights old. The only flaw is that one of the boom supports was broken and I repaired it by JB welding a rod inside it. It is as strong as new. Also, the helicopter has an upgraded alluminum tail drive pulley and bearings are used for tensioning instead of the stock plastic piece. The stock mikado swashplate was replaced with a lighter yet stronger shark TZ swashplate. It has proven itsef very strong and reliable. The original Mikado swash plate broke a ball support in flight. I aslo have some extra low profile landing gears and an additional tail boom to throw in. I may have a few extra goodies as well. So please don't be shy and make me an offer if 400 dollars seems to high. Really what I am asking is $475 compared to 650 because you will need to buy a new canopy. These helicopters are so simple that nothing really can go wrong with them as long as all the parts are not broken and the bearings are well maintained.
This is and will always be my favorite helicopter. It has the best power to weight ratio of any 600 electric out there and it's simplicity makes it virtually maintenance free. I am only parting with it because I just don't have the time to fly it. We just had triplets!!!
