Model Helicopters were gaining popularity in the mid-1970s and helicopter plans and kits were appearing in large numbers. One of these was the R-Bee-110, designed by Bob Benson.
Noted in the preface to Bob’s construction article which appeared in R/C Sportsman September 1976, the editors said that not only was the helicopter simple and built with readily available hobby parts, but it also was a smooth and stable performer. A complete R-Bee-110 was recently donated by Bob Harris and is now on exhibit.
Thank you, Bob, for helping to grow the museum’s collection!
