Hi guys,
I found this heli at the Southeast Model Exhibition in Perry, GA last weekend.

I only bought it out of curiosity and it is very clean.
It came with a clear plastic windshield similar to a Hughes 300.
I couldn't believe how smooth the drivetrain is.
It is missing parts but if I can identify the make, etc, I can decide how hard it will be to restore

Thanks in advance for any assistance!

When I saw the skid wheels I thought of the Dubro and the KK Hughes 300, but still did not know what it really was.

As for the checkered board, I have no idea

Thanks fla heli boy for that info.

Turns out heliheadcase has a Dubro Hughes 300 that was missing the canopy so I am passing it on to him since he helped me out when I was having a problem with one of my helis.

the checker board is the radio and battery compartment and the guy that built it just probably though it was cool looking with the red frame .
