X-Cell 50 Series **UNOPENED**


My wife and I bought a house and found this XCell 50 Series RC helicopter in the attic. The box is opened, however all of the parts are there, and none of the parts bags have been opened. The rotors are in perfect condition, with no chips, mars, or warps in the wood whatsoever. All of the instructions, diagrams, and decals are there as well, with no rips in the paper, and decals are in great condition. Everything seems to have been undisturbed!

I was thinking about saving this to do as a project with my son when he gets older, but since he's only two now, it may be some time for it to sit before we'll be ready to assemble it, if he'll even be into RC flying. So, I'd rather sell it to someone who will have use for it now, I hate to see things of value sitting and deteriorating when someone can be enjoying it now!

This would be a great collectors item, especially in this condition and totally intact. I'll be more than happy to send better pictures of the parts bags or other components if need be.

If interested, please make me an offer!!

That is a rather unique collectors item, should sell like a hot cake at good price if listed at more appropriate site. Good luck, tho, if I was you I rather keep it!

I ahve some xcell 30 helis with that same G-10 frame and I was told years ago Bergen can keep me in parts for them. They kept the cad files and still in biz.
Thank you Ghia,
It is good info to know. BTW, do you know if these parts are from Bergen too?
Mine 0575-6 and 0586-23 are made of machined aluminum which are a little different from this drawing.

I’m currently drooling over the Turbine Whiplash at the moment. When I was a younger man, an X-Cell 60 was my dream. 30 plus years later and I’m still dreaming of X-Cell...
