Sold
eBay 1/8 scale Blue Thunder RC helicopter.

SOLD Thanks RCGroups.

Now on eBay: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...m=271107783621

The model was built by Jack Dunkle (JMD models) using the Epoxy fuselage kit from Steven Hunt in Australia. Steven's kit was the only .60 to .90 size scale Blue Thunder fuselage on the market for the longest time. Steven has his own fiberglass business down under and knows how to build great f'glass products of all sizes. Jack invested many hours and built a super, 5 star BT that I was able to buy from him. This is one the four best models in my personal collection that I will miss. Personal matters have forced me to empty my hobby wing of a 40 year collection.

The model is based on an Align TREX 600CF equipped as follows:
* Align RCM-BL600XL 1700KV Brushless Motor
* Align RCE-BL70G 70AMP ESC with built in BEC
* JR DS 821 digital high torque collective servos (3)
*Futaba GY 401 HH Gyro with companion Futaba 9254 T/R Servo
* Spektrum AR7000 2.4 GHz 7 Channel Receiver
* JMD custom built belt driven 7 blade Fenestron
* Custom made three blade head incorporating Align CNC aluminum Grips
* OF Helitechnik main rotor blades (3) balanced, color keyed to grips, scale paint finish
* Scale flight crew (Pilot and JAFO) in PD uniforms and flight helmets
* Operational Navigation and search lights
* Complete clear-coated exterior graphics and placards set
* 6S 3600-4500mah 30C Lithium Polymer flight pack required but not included.

Custom size carton will be used to professionallly pack the Blue Thunder.
Some minor hangar rash on the bottom of the skids and fuselage belly has been repainted.


Thanks for looking.


Cheers - Boyd

That is a beautiful model! Wish I could afford and actually fly it.
Always thought it was a bit weird ( I'm from the UK), that a police helicopter would need a 7.62mm minigun! Guess you Americans must shout louder than us at protests!

Boyd, oh no! Jack had to be convinced to sell this thing in the first place, so sad you have to let her go. I saw this fly when Jack first built it. Truly a special, unique model. Does this one have functional TV screens like his later model? Also note that Jack got this flying well with no flybarless electronics, it relies on those special weighted blades to fly correctly.

If anyone has any doubt as to the value of this model... I can say first hand that it flies smooth as butter and exudes quality, typical of all the helis Jack built, but this one was always my favorite!

I hope everything works out for you, I know how hard it must be to let go of this beauty!
Happy landings

Thanks for the good words Aaron. The video/audio system was removed. It does fly like a champ with no e-stab system and I do hate to see it go, but I have promised the wife that she won't have to deal with a giant estate sale when I cash in my chips and push back from the table.

Cheers - Boyd
