Summary[ ]

Description
English: The Revolution Mini-500 is a 1990s American single-seat light helicopter, designed and built by Revolution Helicopter Corporation as a kit for homebuilding. Revolution Helicopter went out of business in November 1999 and kits are no longer available. The Mini-500 was designed as a light helicopter that resembles a scaled-down Hughes 500, powered by a Rotax 582 64 hp (48 kW) two-stroke engine. After Revolution Helicopter ceased operations there was an attempt in 2003 led by Richard Stitt and Stitt Industries Inc to restart production of the Mini-500. The company started providing replacement engines to existing Mini-500 owners to replace the under-powered Rotax 582s and intended to produce new Mini-500s. Initial intentions were that it would be powered by a Mazda Wankel engine, but this was abandoned and plans shifted to the Solar T62 turbine engine. There is no indication that Stitt delivered any aircraft kits - Australian International Airshow 10-15 March 2009. File: Mini_500_YMAV_20090315_6308
