I need your help-Heli Find

Newbie here. We found this heli as shown in the pics in the house we bought. I was wondering if somebody can tell me the make/model (it is chinese). There isn't any canopy or Tx. Is it worth to make it flyable or not? Thanks in advance.

Bin it, its junk... looks to me like an old Double Horse, usually found on ebay. They don't fly very well, even if you managed to get the bits to fix it, it's more toy than heli. Spend your cash on something better...my 2p

Absolute junk. 2 channels. Goes up and down, turns right and left, thats it. Forward flight can sometimes be achieved by taping a heavy weight to the front end.

Or, do some more research, find out how it works and rebuild it.
Even if it costs more to rebuild than a new model (Within reason) it's worth it just to know you can.
A large percentage of this hobby is building instead of trashing.

There is nothing worth rebuilding. My neighbor got a new one of those off of Ebay for .02 cents and had to pay $20 for shipping. He ended up spending $20.02 for a pile of crap. It's just a main motor and tail motor, no servos, held together by a cheap plastic frame. THROW IT AWAY!!!

Hey, charge it up try to fly it, let some kids try. You have had free fun (unless it was in the price of your house. lol

If you don't want to bother give it to some kids (semi-commonsense kids) there are rotating blades involved.

If you are interested in the hobby, you can get some small co-axial (two sets of blades spinning opposite). I started with the CX2 and flew in my basement.
You can spend less, get a smaller one and fly inside. Here as a link to a great US company. Let me know if you have questions.

Don't bother with the one you found.

I have already bought two s107s & one s032. Starting from these before getting into the serious expensive ones. Thanks
