I have a complete GMP Cricket that I have just recently rebuilt back to new condition including servos and electronics which are Futaba and of the original vintage. The only part that is not cherry is the canopy. It is kind of rough from someone elses work but fits and would work for flying. At present the canopy is masked over the windscreen and primered. All parts are in great shape, the motor is a new OS 28. The drive assembly is all new. It has been converted to twin belt drive and the belts are new Gates belts of which I have six spares. It could be flown as a single belt drive however. I have a set of spare main and tail rotor blades, a never used Futaba FP-G154 mechanical rate gyro and a Sullivan high torque starter. I have two copies of the original manual one of which is punched and in a three ring notebook cover. I have a small amount of other spare parts too. The cockpit has been detailed with a seat, pilot doll, floor and back panel covering and some nice homemade things like a guage panel and control handles that fit into the pilot dolls hands. This Cricket is a very nice example of this rare old heli and would make someone a fine working model. It is for sale with all included. $225 takes it all.
