Those were good flying machines!

I still have my original one, plus one that was given to me a few years ago.

I flew min constantly back in the late 1970's. Very reliable device.

Incredibly slow cyclic, lightning fast tail,very lax vertical performance (fixed-pitch and fairly heavy).

That needs some air under it! I hope you decide to fly it. I was flying a modern 50 heli flybarless without a controller. The next step would be to dial down the gyro gain then remove it completely. I'm sure you could learn to fly this without a gyro. That was not unusual back then anyhow.

After looking at the pictures I have just realised I have one of them helicopters in my loft that was given to me about 20 years ago, its all there apart from the bubble canopy as far as I can remember, must be 8 years from I last seen it.

If it doesnt move and its meant too... use WD 40. If it moves and its not meant too...use duct tape!
