My friend that passed and his Bell 47 came home with me!
Thought I would share this. Some of you know my best flying buddy passed away a few months ago and his wife wanted me to have something of his to take home, my wife and I went to his house last night to see her and she gave me his Century Bell 47 to have to hang in my shop. I built this kit yrs ago and flew it several times then I traded it to him, he never flew it so its been hanging in his garage the whole time. Don't think I will fly it, parts are not available anymore, some parts for the mechanics can be found but not the scale parts.

RIP John and thanks for the Bell 47 returned to its home...

Sorry for your loss, happy to see you are left with a worthy momento.

Too bad it was never flown, as mine was one of my favorite scale helis for everyday flying.

Maybe you should just have a flight or two with it in commemoration of him.

Thanks guys for the kind words. Also, in my above post I mentioned I built the kit, I bought and built it for me at the time and it has flown several flights, then I traded it to him and he never had the nerve to fly it. So now that I have it back I was thinking on maybe just getting it into a hover or I might just strip it and hang it up for the rest of its life with me.....D. Lee.....t.Born again.t.....

Always sad to loose a close friend, they don't come to us that easily. One of the great truths in this hobby is that you do get some friends for life. As to the Bell, I too had one, loved it but a crash changed it for me & I sold it to a true scale Bell flier and fan - in my mind it went to a better home. Yours has flown and has the distinguished position of being a Hangar Queen for the past years. My unasked for vote and recommendation....keep it as a Hangar Queen and it's special memories. AndyInverted IS more fun!

I just thought it was great that his wife thought of me and gave it back to me, she didn't want any money or anything like that, just wanted me to hang it in my shop, I have no problem looking at it every day....

Thanks guys for the kind words and I decided to see it hover one more time then it will be a display only model.
