Revolution Helicopter Mini-500

In 1994 Revolution Helicopters of Excelsior Springs, Missouri announced their kit-built Mini-500. This single-seater could easily be mistaken for a scaled-down Hughes 500D with its egg-shaped fuselage pod, slim tailboom and T-tail. The Mini-500 is powered by a 67hp Rotax 582 engine and over 350 kits have been sold, with examples flying in Holland, South Africa and Brazil as well as substantial numbers in the United States.

Hi Malcolm

I have a mini 500 that my brother bought years ago, parts kit is 98% complete.
No engine is included as the original rotax was not powerful enough, the best is either a turbine or yamaha 100hp.

Let me know if you are interested

People... STAY AWAY FROM THIS MACHINE... IT WILL KILL YOU. Do your research and read the AD's. Fetters was good at PR but horrible at engineering, customer relations, or safety. It's a very good thing he is out of business. It looks like a wonderful machine but it's a death trap... wrong engine, frame cracking, induced vibrations, component failures... dead people. And yes.. I am a commercially licensed helicopter pilot with an engineering background. If you bought one of these then use it as an ornament, cut your losses, be grateful you are alive, and DO NOT pass it on to some unsuspecting person who might die flying it.
