prototype at US Nationals July 1972.

 

Introduced June 1973 however, the Ohlsson and Rice 21cc engine (petrol converted to Glow) proved to be unreliable and flight performance was marginal due to it being very heavy (14 pounds !!!).

Not for sale as such but the advert from the UK's RCM&E magazine showed that at least one Dub-Ro Hughes 300 had made it across to the UK before December 73.

Helicopter information from UK magazine Feb 1975 though not sure about the CAA reference as it should have been below 7Kg (14 Lbs noted above).
