Yeah, as you found out, that's a Hoverstar. Horizon's version of the GMP Rebel. Mid 1990's.

Im a Cricket Enthusiast. Love the Vintage Heli's far more than anything new. Except for my first heli I ever flew successfully, a Trex 450 SE. Which was my first scale heli as well, an MD500.

I'll post some pics of my Crickets and Parts shortly.

Hey Matt,

I'm a Cricket fan too. My first heli way back when! I'm actually working on putting one together, but it will be e-powered this time around.

That's a nice looking Sceadu! I always liked that canopy style. Much more stylish than most of the ugly ones we see today! Thanks for the support!

Here are two more vintage machines brought back out of mothballs! The one on the right is a GMP Legend Elite. The heli on the left is a super rare Tech Specialties Eclipse! I acquired both of these from a gentlemen that was getting out of the hobby many years ago. From what I gather, the Eclipse was designed more for the FAI contest pilot, and never really made it into full production. This machine was exquisitely designed utilizing carbon fiber main frames, married to some parts borrowed from the GMP Legend. I believe this one was a pre-production kit sent out to a privileged few. Too bad it never made it into production, I'm really looking forward to giving it a whirl! The guy that had a hand in designing this one is one sharp dude!!!

Count me in. I have a bunch of Schluters that I'm refurbishing, and as a result of some package deals I've also come into possession of some X-Cells, Robbes, Shuttles, Kyoshos, and have a Century on the way soon.
