[MSFS] - Got Friends – Revolution Mini–500 v1.0.1


The Mini-500 is a 1990s single-seat light helicopter. The helicopter was deliverable in a kit to enthusiasts around the world for a unique home building experience. Originally designed to be powered by a single Rotax 582 piston engine, the two stroke engine proved to be underpowered in application and failed many times in-flight. The engine’s vibration levels proved to be a problem as they, combined with excessive rotor vibrations, lead to cracked frames and other component failures. In 2003, plans were put into place that provided replacement engines to existing Mini-500s that replaced the under-powered Rotax 582. This would allow owners to shift to a more reliable Solar T-62 Turbine Engine. To this day, there is no indication that any T-62 turbine kit was delivered with an aircraft kit. However, some owners have incorporated the proposed design and you can find a few Mini-500s with this unique turbine engine modification. Our rendition is heavily inspired by the design of the original kit helicopter produced by Revolution Helicopter Corporation. However, we have adopted the Stitt Industries’ proposed plans and modified our kit with the Solar T-62 Turbine Engine. Our Mini-500 has all the amenities of a great single seater helicopter with modified systems to ensure maximum stability, safety, speed and enjoyment.
