Attachment 1641053Hey folks,

Well, it's been a while. I think my last post was to announce the birth of my youngest. He turns 8 in a few weeks... After the 2010 NATS, I went to the Helifun fun fly in Quebec and then maybe only flew once or twice after that. It's been so long, I don't even recognise half of the heli parts I have. I'm not even sure if the cases of fuel I have would be any good...

So, a couple houses later, a career change, the better part of a decade and two boys who are so into hockey that we might as well live in an arena, I haven't been able to pick up a transmitter.

I miss the hobby and who knows - maybe I will someday have the time to fly again - full scale and models, but for now I have a bunch of stuff I need to clear out. The two rooms I was using to store these vintage helis need to be repurposed.

There are a lots of parts and pieces that have been mixed together over the years. Some neat stuff to be sure and a couple of helis that will obviously never fly. I had intended to restore, display and fly some of them but in reality, I won't have the time. Take a look a the pictures and see what you think. If you have questions, I will do my best to answer them but I had to google some of them because I simply couldn't remember the model names and such after such a long break. I have quite a bit of original documentation, plans and build sheets etc. and tons of new blades. Going through some of the documentation, I found the receipt for the Schleuter Gazelle that I bought off an older fellow in London for $500. I know I bought one or two others from the ceiling of Flight Craft, and some of the others from people here.

I'm not looking to make money here, or even cover my costs. Primarily I'm looking to move them to a new home. I'd like to get $1000 for everything but am open to offers from someone willing to show up - with a van, truck or trailer (you will need it).

Thanks for looking and I hope everyone is doing well. I definitely miss a few people that were on here and some at my local field too. Maybe we will meet again some day.

Re: Vintage Helicopters for sale


Sorry to see this Mark... also had two kids (I think we just each had one when I spoke to you last about 7 yrs ago). I took a forced break for 5 or 6 yrs just starting up again slowly in the past year.

Hockey and soccer sure are time killers! Lol

Andrew! Glad to see you are still kicking around. I still have that PST turbine. It's still all in pieces. I am going order bearings and put it back together. Someday. Honest.

No kidding huh? We average 4 days a week at the arena. In the summer. Winter, we are never home...

Life's good though. Wouldn't trade it for anything right now.

Re: Vintage Helicopters for sale


Hey Mark, I see you still have the Lark. I think I was 12 when I built that. Wow, that sure brings back memories.
Best of luck with your sale.


Bill

Re: Vintage Helicopters for sale


Hey Bill. Yeah, it's still there.

Would you like it back? It will have more meaning to someone in your family or extended family. No charge. I'm getting a little concerned here as there doesn't seem to be the interest I expected in this older stuff. Perhaps there aren't many here that have unrealistic aspirations like me...

Interested... sure! But Iím sitting with two dozen flyable planes, 4 helis and 40+ kits etc. And just starting to get a bit of free time now to enjoy the hobby.

Iím away on holidays camping this week but Iíd be interested in a more detailed list or chatting about some of the stuff.

Doesnít help that Iím a days drive north.

Shoot me a message when you're back and not out of touch and not roughing it in the wilderness.

I didn't get rid of anything. Not sure which one's the Heliboy but probably took the floats off to conserve space.

Re: Vintage Helicopters for sale


Dug these up during the purge. I'm including these with the helis for anyone interested. Two complete Parkzone Spits. One TX and a charger. Some spare parts and a battery (not likely any good any longer).

These haven't seen the light of day for a decade but, we used to love flying them at the local park before getting into the more expensive models and helis.

Looking to move everything at once to one person as soon as possible. First come first served.
