The Mini-500 is a light helicopter kit for homebuilding that resembles a scaled-down Hughes 500 powered by a Rotax 582 of 64 hp (48 kW) two-stroke engine.
The first Mini-500 flew in 1992 with first kits delivered by 1994.
Revolution Helicopter went out of business in November 1999 and kits are no longer available. 500 were built with around 100 of them completed and flown.
