The Mini-500 Unique Features

  • Patented Control System - Eliminates the high maintenance swashplate assembly and many related parts found in other helicopters.

  • High Quality Components - Every component of the Mini-500 is the product of intense research and development. CAD/CAM techniques have been used to design, create and manufacture critical components.

  • Low Operating and Maintenance Cost - The Mini-500 provides true three dimensional flight capabilities at a fraction of the cost of regular helicopters.

  • High TBO - All components, except the proven and dependable Rotax 582 engine, are designed with a TBO of at least 2,000 hours.

  • ONE WEEK Assembly Kit - The simplicity of design makes it easy even for the novice builder, to assemble the Mini-500 's prefabricated and finished components in about 40 to 60 hours - plus painting.
