I have just acquired a Kalt Cyclone (c. mid-80's) helicopter at a swap meet. It is complete apart from the user manual. Any ideas where I may acquire one from or just even a copy.

I'm not familar with this model, but from searching for you I found they seem to have a Clclone, and a Cyclone 2. Not sure which you have yet.

Cyclone or Cyclone II
Yes - that's the one - not sure which it is but have attached a photo. Have been sent a Cyclone II Instruction manual but keen to know if it is a II or not.

Cyclone had a smooth tail belt and the original had a 'flexiplate' head. The later Mk1 cyclone had K5 head.

Cyclone 2 had toothed tail belt and K5 head. It may have had the Baron type pitch change mechanism - I'm not sure.

The Major difference between the two I think was the Toothed Tail belt on the Mk2 version.

Head and Tailbelt

Definately a smooth tailbelt and here is a photo of the head.

That is the Flexiplate head and the tail belt appears to be perectly smooth on both sides which makes it an old (original) Kalt Cyclone Mk1..
