Does anyone have one of these models? If so, what do you think about it? Is it a good flyer? How about flight times? Any specific problems? Thanks for any and all input... Bob

I am in the same boat as you. I have been looking for a starter heli and this is the one I think I am getting. It seems to have very good feedback plus it comes with a practice software.

Just make sure that you get the latest version with the belt driven tail.

I've been practicing with a king 3 that I upgraded to cf frame and it flies like my blade 400,very stable and rock solid tale,all stock except the frame and bigger battery,it's the metal head version and I'm using the ar6100 spekrum rx with the dx7 tx ,the dx7 makes tuning it very easy.

Reply with quote

Is this model avalable from Esky with the belt drive tail rotor? I am looking into FP heli's to start with and have been considering the Walkera U Fly, as I just don't want to waste time the the old brushed tail rotor motor hassle.

Other wise, the HoneyBee 2 looks like a great heli for the price.

you might take into consideration the king3,don't be afraid to start with a collective pitch heli either,you'll find that learning how to control it is much easier than a fixed pitch and yes the king 3 has a belt driven tail,I would more likely recommend the blade 400 over the king 3 though for one apperent reason.If you need parts for the king 3 you have to buy online unless your hobby store stocks parts ,mine don't .the blade 400 is easy to get parts for at any hobby store that sells eflite products

Thanks Frank. Sounds like good advice. I fly the King 3 with little problems on the Clearview Sim. In fact, much better than the Honey Bee 2. As far as parts go, all of the hobby stores in my neighbor hood stock Blade parts. Also, Blade is coming out with a detuned version CP called the SR rtf. Should be out in mid Feb. I think I may just hold out for that one before taking the plunge.
