This is a well used and fairly beaten up 270CFX. Please do not purchase if your unfamiliar with assembly / disassembly and set up of helis. Please read all the following details.
I bought this heli used from a guy in VIC a couple of years ago under the reassurance it was in original new condition. Thinking this was the case, I flew it straight out of the box. Obviously after full setup in transmitter. Normal flight mode went well, idle up 1 was fine, idle up 2 flipped it on the spot and it met the ground with a serious amount of damage. Thinking I may have made a mistake in the transmitter setup I replaced and rebuilt the heli, which wasn’t cheap only to find exactly the same situation occurred first flight after rebuild. I decided I’d rebuild 1 more time only this time I total stripped the parts and started from scratch. I found the previous owner had disassembled the rotor head / blade grips and reassembled it missing 1 full radial bearing and also missing 1/2 a thrust bearing which I’m assuming accounts for the 2 crashes. Bearings were very hard to come by so I bought a new blade grip set. Just about everything except the canopy has been replaced and rebuilt with new parts. Upon setting up the FBL I noticed it would not complete one of the last setup steps. Unsure why but might be a damaged FBL. I’ve spent a fortune rebuilding this heli and now it’s ready to go I’ve decided to quit while I’m behind sell. I have NOT test flown. Upon purchase, please do take the time to setup the FBL from scratch and see if you can get it working or use your own. Also check over the whole heli well before first test flight. Not asking for too much but the price is firm. You could also use it as a cheap donor for another 270CFX. comes with the spares pictured and 2 6s SAB Batteries. Canopy is damaged and you would possibly want to replace. Prefer pickup from Tuggerah Central Coast but can post if you pay for postage. Can also arrange pick up from Syd as I’m do
