I bought it new in 1986, and owned it for a year, and crashed it. I bought all the parts to repair, plus a few extras like a gyro to simplify flying, and rotor alignment tool, but got accepted to grad school and never worked on it again since 1987 ! The damage is basically the carbon fibre chassis, and I have the new one ready to go.
Engine and RC all worked fine when I last touched it back in 1987.
I invested nearly 2000.00 back in 1986 but of course like all technology, prices fall. Still, a gas powered heli has got to be pretty bad-ass old school compared to those little drones. It has a 1100 mm main rotor disc, and the engine is 28.
Here is a link to a 1986 review of this little beast:
