Are these 1005 kits still supported with parts availability? I have a chance to buy 2 of these helis, 1 lightly used the other not assembled, and about $3000 in parts [according to seller] for $600. Is this something worth purchasing? I've been out for about 10 years and want to get back at it.

Thanks in advance!

There isnt much support anymore. Just collectors scooping them up.

If for some reason you dont do it, maybe get me in contact with the seller? Ill scoop it up!

You can still get some parts through Miniature Aircraft but realize that they are now in Germany if you didn't know that already. I have not dealt with them but have not heard of any issues with them either. Not sure how much shipping from Germany would be. The US distributor does not seem to be very active with the brand unfortunately.

You still can get some parts through the classifieds here as well as on eBay, but with two helis and that many parts(hopefully the seller is being honest) I suspect you'll be covered. Sounds like a great deal! If you can, show us what all you get in your haul.

I have bought several times from MA in Germany. Shipping costs and delivery times are not much different that when MA was in the US.

The older I get, the fewer things seem worth waiting in line for.

rerebel, you should jump on the 1005's. It sounds like a great deal, especially with a new kit.

Excellent Fury
I have an excell fury that I bought years ago and have never flown it. It has a YS 80 in it and has never seen a drop of fuel. It has a GY601 Gyro in it along the all digital servo's. I built and never flow it. Belive I have $2500 in to it when I built it. What do you all think I can get for it if I sell it? It also a GV-1 in it.
