Du-Bro Shark .60 restoration
I recently just completed a restoration of a Du-Bro Shark .60 I've had for 10-12 years. It was a blast working on it and it is flying great! I have about 20 flights on it so far. Lots of fun!

Nice job. It looks great. How does it fly? Collective pitch or fixed pitch?

It only has one swashplate, so it's fixed pitch. The Shark used a strange arrangement of two swashplates to achieve collective pitch. A great looking Shark, which was my first heli. Mine started with the O&R engine but I later converted it to a Shark 60 when they came out. Flew much better. Sure wish I still had one.Allen Dye

Tony,
Really nice job. Now you're getting me all inspired to restore one of my .60 Sharks. Now if I could just figure where to get a new canopy for it. LOL
