Oh goodness where to start. First gla to see another Cobra going back in the air. I collect GMP helis and have 5 cobras I fly all the time. All of them have a 401 gyro in them with a normal (slow) servo. Ive always run a brass tube so thats not new for me. I dont do any hard aerobatics with any of the old machines and Ive never had a tail drive system failure.
I use a DX18 raio, if you think those settings are close Ill list them out here.
I do have a ton of parts for cobras, the only thing I will not sell are any of the ball bearing washouts I and L levers and some of the other good parts.
Good luck

Hi guys. Havent been on the site for a while, so just read this post. I have beeen running 401 gyros on all my Cobras for a while now. And using heading hold with no problems. The key is to NOT use a high speed digital servo. I did on my one Cobra and it tore the main gear out very quickly. I also fly these old machines very easy. I dont do hard piros or anything.

I have been debating to advertise one of the legends. I realize the value of most items depends on the demand. So with that said is there a decent demand for legends.
I have 4, 2 elite, 2 flybarless. Will only sell one of them if worth my while. Any ideas?

I am in the process of making room and raising money for my new side business. I have so much GMP stuff I thought Id give some up to those who want or need.
I will be listing a lot of stuff on ebay in the weeks to come. I thought I would post here first to give some of you first chance.
The first thing I will be listing are my Cricket extras. I have almost a complete heli, shy of a couple links. I also have a few new parts. Pics are in my gallery.
Haven't priced out yet, but if interested shoot me a pm with an offer.
Anyone else looking for GMP parts, hit me in a PM what your looking for. I probably have it.
Thanks Mike

Reading all these post about Crickets makes me want to get mine out again. Haven't flown it for a couple years. Over the winter I want to make an engine change. Mine only has an OS .25 in it and is really powerless. Would a .32 be to big??
Also over the winter I'm going to get one of the Rebels back in the air.I'll post pictures of that project

I am considering selling my entire collection of GMP helis and parts, I have so much stuff. I have at least one of everything they made. Real heavy on Cobra and Legends.
My question to everyone is I would love to find a buyer to buy everything at once. Don't really have the time to list and sell seperate. The main reason I'm selling is I'm downsizing and just won't have the room anymore.
Don't contact me about selling one or two parts, Please.
For more info email me rcpilot41@gmail.com.

I agree with Steve on Cricket blades. But just FYI, I have a Koll balancer I use to balance blades. It does span and chord wise. Used along with a digital gram scale, you can make blades perfect, esp old woodies with lead weights. Not sure where to purchase a Koll balancer anymore, used to be available through Miniature Aircraft.

Thanks for the info everyone. Have not torn the eng down yet, but was planning on just doing everything, bearings, piston, etc. This old girl has a lot of time on her. The last couple times I had the Cobra out, it was just way down on power. Not a tune issue, I think just a I'm worn out issue lol.

Help OS 45 parts
Well after being in my Cobra for 21 yrs, the old os 45 is telling me she needs freshened up. Can't imagine why lol. Finding parts is become a challenge. Through some digging I have prt numbers but have not found anyone who has them in stock. Ok only tried Great Planes so far. Any leads would be appreciated.
Thanks, Mike

My bad sorry. I forgot they made the 222. I actually have some info on it with all my old kyosho stuff.
I too get heckeled everytime I bring something old to the field. Last month I took my Concept SRX, my Legend and one of the Cobras. Everyone wants to know why I mess with the old junk. Because I love it !!!!

I don't think Kyosho made a bell 222 fuse. They had a jet ranger, hughs 300 and hughs 500. There were several companies that did make a 222 fuse for a 30 size.

OK need some ideas or help here. If I start this Rebel project what size motor would be a good choice. Rebel was originally designed for a .40 size engine. A motor for a 600 size heli I think would be to much and a 500 maybe to small. Plus it be nice to use just 1 batt pack, a 6c. Any thoughts???

If I remember correct Don chapman was behind this in helping MA the goal was to take some of the tail wondering tendencies out during some of the FAI manuvers. I had one on one of the first gen XCell pro's. Worked well. This was also back when the best gyro available was a Piezo, which still required tail rotor mix in the radio.

There are several on this forum who can probably fill in the details more accurately, but as I understand when John broke away from Hirobo the cost of setting up to manufacture everything on his own was to great and could not recover. A great company IMO. I still feel the Legend was way ahead of its time. I am a GMP collector and I still fly all of them. Great machines. Often wonder how big of a player they would be today,if still in business

I brought out 6 of my GMP helis to display. Unfortunately they stayed in the van all week except for the Legend. I did fly it on Thursday. To my surprise it got a lot of attention. Even though everyones into 3D, I think there is a lot of interest in the vintage. I think we need to let IRCHA and the AMA know we want a tent next year.

I think I enjoy building, flying and maintaining the vintage stuff more then I do the newer helis. I don't think I'll ever catch on to the 3d flying. My old brain just isn't fast enough lol.
I'm proud of my GMP collection. I have at least one of every heli they made.
On my competitior I won't be able to fly it with the side panels because I added all the I and L levers. They hit the body work and I don't want to cut it away. I'll hang them on for display.

Finally got around to working on the competitor again. Left off a week ago with eng. rebuilt, clutch dialed in frames assembled. Went to install eng today and clutch gear is 3/16 away from lower bearing. Beat my head against the wall for 2 hours. came to the conclusion the clutch hub is wrong. As I was going through all my parts boxes, low and behold a bag with a fan hub marked Competitor only, longer.
Installed that one and guess what, all is well now. DUH!!!!!!

Good to see another Competitor coming back to life. I just started on restoring mine today. I fortunately have a vast supply of parts so it should be an easy one. I'll post some pics later in the week.
I plan on using a 401 in this machine. I have one in 2 other Cobras and have had no problem with the wire or the drive gear. I don't use a hi speed tail servo nor do I fly them hard.
Good luck with your project.

Not sure I can answer your particular questions, but will compare notes. I also have a SRX with a 32 sx. Bought it new in 97 (?). When I built it I installed a helimax pipe. Had the same probs as you. Went to a helimax muffler, it ran much better. Better power over entire range. I also run 20% nitro. For whatever reason it was not happy on 30%. Maybe to much compression, never followed through for a reason.
I also have a 61 sx in a Legend. It too did not like a tuned pipe. Never took the time to research the reasons these engines were not happy with a tuned pipe. Maybe the SX's were timed a little different.
