Any Millennium fans out there? For Sale, my vintage but new Robbe Millennium I AFR. Arguably one of the best helis ever produced, this machine was lovingly assembled with all new parts. The engine was started once and the machine was flown for about a half tank of fuel but never flown after that. Shortly thereafter, I got involved in a different hobby (car racing) that consumed all of my spare time for several years and I never got back to the Mille! Though I finally got back into helis, I never got the Mille down from its shelf again. I would like to see it go to someone, probably a Robbe enthusiast so it could either be flown or used for a great parts source.
This machine was built with all the options available at the time including the following:
Carbon frames w/ extended radio tray, double head dampers, new style tail drive supports, aluminum boom support clamp, carbon 3D vert. fin, etc. It is powered by a YS 61 STII with a Hatori SB9II muffler with CNC clamps. The engine turns freely and is rust free as it was well lubed before storage.
Servos installed in the machine were all new digitals when the machine was built. These include (2) JR 8231 on cyclic, (1) JR 8411 special edition on collective, (1) JR 8700G on tail rotor and a Futaba 9203 for throttle. A CSM 540 Heading Hold gyro is included and while not quite current technology was top of the line equipment in its day and is still a great gyro.
Quite a few new spare parts are included with this machine including the original, never used metal frames, radio trays, tail drive tube with support bearings and two sets of ends, custom flybar lock and swash leveling block, plastic fins, plus many other parts.
All manuals are included along with several articles from the time regarding Mille setups, etc.
This is a great machine in absolutely perfect condition. It is old in years but new in every respect otherwise. When new, this machine cost over $2600.00 as it is equipped. I would like $585.00 for this machine and would prefer not to part it out.
Buyer would pay shipping. Email or PM if interested. Additional photos available and please let me know if additional questions.
