Scorpion-133 two-seat helicopter project. Upgrade of a 1975/76 Scorpion, this RotorWay Scorpion has the 4-cycle RW-133 engine. Engine has good compression and includes a new timing belt. Most of the parts and components are included to finish rebuilding this helicopter. It is in fair condition (a 6/10) and has always been stored indoors. Was flown in the 1990s and has about 50hrs total time. The manuals and prints are included for the rebuild. Features include: high-style skid struts, dual controls, plexiglass doors, metal main and tail rotorblades, ground-handling wheels, instrument panel with several instruments.
Work required: completing the helicopter will primarily require re-welding onto frame the last third of the tail boom (had been removed for storage); remounting the main rotorhead and main and tail rotorrblades; remounting the instrument panel; providing and wiring the missing instruments (available from Aircraft Spruce & Specialty); obtaining and installing a new tail-rotor control cable (approx. $175); re-installing the transmission. Helicopter is located in southern California.
Note that the fully enclosed trailer shown in 3 photos is available with this helicopter for only $500 extra. Total cost with trailer: only $12,500. Come haul it away!
