Kyosho Concept 30 RC Helicopter

I have a Kyosho Concept 30 helicopter assembled, (circa 1995) but never even test run or anything. Life got in the way, and it wound up hanging in the rafters of the storage shed all these years. I installed a OS 32 heli engine, and bench ran the engine for a while to adjust it. Then I installed it in the helicopter. It has a Hitec 6 channel Heli radio installed along with a Hitec mechanical gyro system as well. I charged up the radio system, and it is still working OK, and even did a decent range check as well. The gyro spins up and works with the tail rotor OK. it is a little dusty and crusty from aging in the storage shed, there is some surface rust on the main shaft and a number of the screws and some of the metal rods. I have the charger for the radio as well. Even though it charges up good, it may be wise to install new batteries.

I can't find the manual for it. So no manual. But there is a manual for the Concept 30 DX online as a PDF, so that isn't a problem.

I had considered converting it to electric,but I got a great deal on a Century Swift 16 electric heli, so I don't want to convert it now. Unfortunately, I have to drive about 60 miles to the RC flying field, so flying electrics is way better as I can do that at home without upsetting the neighbors.
I'll entertain trades and if someone doesn't want the radio, I can remove the radio and gyro and leave the servos in as placeholders if that is wanted.
Shipping might be a problem as it is fairly big. So S&H might be a little expensive. If you are local it can be cost effective to arrange a pickup. I accept Paypal too. Please PM me with your offer, the best offer wins.
