This 525 Relentless Helicopter Model is a replica scale model of the original produced by Bell Textron. The Bell 525 is a medium lift helicopter which can carry up to 20-people. The first flight was in February 2015, but a crash in 2016 delayed the certification. Bell is getting closer to FAA approval, and the helicopter uses a fly-by-wire controls.
This authentic, extraordinary replica of the original Bell 525 Relentless aircraft has been faithfully reproduced with mostly kiln dried Philippine mahogany wood. Each model is meticulously carved, hand sanded and painted following exact blueprint details of the original aircraft. The result is a handsome, wood helicopter sculpture to be admired and enjoyed.
