“Not your typical Scorpion project found on Ebay. This one is ready to go and there is a video of it.

Item specifics Condition: Seller Notes:
Model Year: 1978 Make: Rotorway
For your consideration I am offering up for auction my 1978 Rotorway Scorpion that has been upgraded to a 145. The upgrade includes the Rotorway 145 engine, the 145 rotor head, longer tail rotor blades, and longer Rotorway main rotor blades.
The main rotor blades are asymmetric Rotorway blades and while they are older production they have had the rivet mod done and are identical to current production blades. These blades have less than 10 hours on them and if you were to buy a new set from Rotorway today they are over $10,000. The frame has been stretched to accommodate the longer blades.
The 145 engine also has less than 10 hours on it. The magneto has been replaced with a 152 distributer set-up to help lengthen the belt life, actually it doubles the recommended belt replacement time. The original mag is complete and included in the auction, along with some other spare parts, manual, and prints. There is also a set of doors that I picked up somewhere but have not installed. Passenger side is good but the pilot side door is broken, I think it could be used as a pattern to mold a new one.
As you can see in the pictures the ship has full dual controls. The instrumentation is basic but functional. All belts and hoses were replaced two years ago. It is pretty much ready for someone with more time than me to complete testing. You can see a video online of it hovering by searching Scorpion First Hover. It"s not a high quality video but shows the machine is stable and in the air under its own power.
Payment is due within 7 days of auctions end, CASH AT TIME OF PICK-UP. That means just what it says. You come here and pay me in cash. No paypal, no personal checks or cashiers checks, no Visa or Mastercard. Don"t be fooled by the shipping commercial Ebay added to the listing, I will not arrange or be responsible in any way for shipping. I will gladly assist you in the loading of the helicopter on your trailer, after it is paid for. If you need, for an extra 2 grand I can include a two year old, 20 foot trailer to haul it home on.
Serious bidders only please. We"ve all seen this type item repeatedly relisted do to non paying bidders. Don"t be that guy. If the winning bidder backs out I will offer a second chance to the next highest bidder. 0 feedback bidders that do not contact me before bidding will be canceled and blocked.
Pre-bid inspections are highly recommended. I have set this auction up to end on Saturday evening so that you can come out Saturday and inspect it, win the auction Saturday night, and load it up on Sunday morning. Can"t be more convenient than that.
This is your chance to own a ready to fly helicopter for the price of a good used motorcycle. Don"t miss out.
