Looks to be a modified GMP Competitor.

raptornoob: I believe it to be an old Kalt Gas Baron with a "K1SB" rotor head. Used to have one. One of the very first gasoline powered helis. Prior to the gas "Excel". Look at the side of the rotor head and see if the letters "K1SB" are there. Also, check the flybar paddles for the word "Kalt". Let me know. Thanks!

It's a Kalt. The signature stamped frames for strength.

Definitely Kalt.

Hirobo/GMP did start stamping the ridge into the side frames towards the end (I have only seen black side frames this way-Hirobo originally was natural metal, then red anodized, then later black. GMP was always black).

Yup, I saw the construction and the natural color and it immediately reminded me of the GMP Cobra I built years ago. But the Cobra was too small for a gasser motor, so I assumed it was a modified Competitor, forgetting that the Competitor came black, not natural.

And I was never exposed to the Kalt stuff other than through some of their ads.

dkshema,

The Kalt stuff was pretty nice. Some parts were nicer than Hirobo, some not. I depended on the part.

I did not have any, but my friends did, and I flew some of it.

Good stuff-you would have liked it, I think.

My entry in the heli world was long ago, in Montana, and there were very few hardy souls around. I bought Schluter stuff. Later on when I moved to Kansas City, the area was fill of Schluter and GMP helis, and not much else. So I missed out on the Kalt and TSK stuff.

I started out with American R/C, the got a Helibaby, then a Heliboy.

A lot of people were flying Kalt Baronettes and Kyosho Concepts.

I was the oddball that liked Hirobo.

I out a lot of time on Crickets to.

It sounds like we were flying at about the same time (mid-1970's/early 1980's)?

My first heli was a Kalt Baron. It had black frames. Next heli was a GMP Cobra with non-anodised aluminum frames. Next Schuluter Champions with only black.

I actually started with a DuBro 505, modified it later to an Ed Sweeney Superbird. My next heli was an ambitious one - a Kavan Jet Ranger. I built it, and when it came to painting, I figured one crash and all that work would be gone. I sold it and bought an American RC Helicopters Revolution 40 that made noise but never actually flew. It was kind of a semi-controlled brick.

I finally got a Heliboy and found hovering success. That led me on a progression through most of the Schluter line - HeliStar, MiniBoy, Superior, Champion. I flirted with GMP and a Cobra briefly. From there it was a Concept 30DX, Concept 60, and an X-Cell. Then there were Nexus, Calibers and finally I've kind of worked my way through the Align offerings.
