A young Robert Gorham seen here in the mid 80's with the Cobra Jet Ranger debut. Event the German made Sitar rotor blades remain intact today.
The GMP (Gorham Model Products) catalog picture from 1985 showing the helicopter.
Barry plans to display and fly this amazing helicopter at many nationwide events throughout the summer and possibly compete with it again in the NATS. He's currently working on a magazine article about the history of the heli.
Although the Jet Ranger has been refitted with Align 600E flybar mechanics instead of the original GMP Cobra nitro setup, the fuselage is original and the flybar retains the flying characteristics of the Cobra. When it was discovered there were no mechanics installed and it needed much repair. Some parts were missing entirely and Barry scoured the country looking for replacements, eventually finding a replacement top piece in Florida.
