A spectacular package consisting of 7 Mini-500 single-seat helicopters at various levels of completion. Dates of manufacture: 1995 through 1998 (est).
• Four of the Mini's are on skids and are mostly complete except for the engines. They have all flown in the past and were more or less disassmbled for storage. The cockpits are complete. They will need to be reassembled; the wiring and controls will need completion. • At least 2 have been set up for the Solar T62 turbine engine (will need the engine). • One of the Mini's is a roll-over that will need substantial work to make flight-ready. • This collection includes at least 20 sets of main rotor blades (at least 40 blades). The blades are extruded aluminum, have an 8" chord and are 9'6" long. The value of the bladesets alone equals the selling price of the entire collection of parts. • Also included: a Rotax 582 engine core; some production molds; many crates of parts and hardware that include main gearboxes, doors, fuel tanks, exhaust systems, wheels, etc.
NOTE: this group of parts is ONLY being sold as a single lot. It will not be broken up or sold piecemeal. Will require a large trailer or semi to move everything, which is located in Kansas.
Package of Mini-500s and parts also includes tooling for manufacture.
