    So here we go again, same copyright/patent story. I would still like to know the correct legal interpretation. Why? It’s public knowledge that I have been building a Skeeter Jr helicopter, and have based it on the Cicare CH-6 design. I have utilised some Mini-500 parts that I have privately...

Let's leave the past in the past. Post only fair comments. I keep on getting requests for information that I may...
