Corona Lite Machine


I helped a friend clean out his attic and he gave me this Helicopter for my help. I don't know too much about Helicopters only Airplanes. He said it ran when he put it up in the attic. It is missing the servo for the tail rotor ( Hitec HS-81 ) other than that it looks complete. I might buy a Hitec servo for the rotor and a battery and see how it runs. But I won't fly it. Does anyone know what this Helicopter is worth? I would like to sell it or trade it for an Airplane or Airplane kit. Thanks for looking. Hank

That must be (a) a pre-1990's RC Heli or a (b) Heli made over seas.
I haven't seen anything like that in the last 15 years.
Given the competing amount of technology out there, along with the CNC parts, I doubt this is worth much bro... The servos , ESC, or engine might be re-sold for a little somethin, but the heli would only be worth something to an eccentric collector type (who actually are around on this site)

You will be best off finding a collector to sell that to. The parts wiuldn't be worth much to anyone who wasnt trying to restore another corona 120 (but yours is fairly complete!)

I would trade for a Biplane kit with a 48" w/s ( please no styrofoam ) just balsa wood and hardwood. It would be easier and cheaper to ship a kit. You would have to pay for shipping on the Helicopter. I would double box the Helicopter take it to the post office and have it weighted. And let you know how much. Or if you don't have a Biplane then let be know what kits you have.

I think I will post the Helicopter on eBay with a reserve. And see what happens. Thanks for everyone's input.

Corona Lite Machine


OK, So I did not do so good posting it on eBay, So I am dropping the price to $50.00 and that is the lowest I will go. I would like to think that my time cleaning out that attic in Tucson AZ when it was 104 degs. Farinheight is worth something! Also, there is a crack in one of the main blades where it connects to the rotor head and it still needs a tail rotor servo. Diana

Tou might be best off trying to get rid of it at a swap or other heli event.

Good luck! (sincere)
