welcome dark, glad to have more esky fans here. you are right about them catching on, I think over the next year you will see them grab as big a market share as eflite has unless eflite comes up with someting new, not a rehashed version of the old like the pro. What all do you fly?

I think Esky made the helicopters for eflite. OEM production

Examples:
E-Flite Blade CX which is similar or the same as [link=http://www.china-magic3.com/category.php?cat=13]Lama 2 & Lama 4[/link]

E-Flite Blade CP is same as the Esky CP2 [link=http://www.china-magic3.com/category.php?cat=20](Pictures)[/link]

I fly mostly sport like, not really interested in 3D. Most of my helis are used for scale flying. Heres a pic of one of my Belt CPs in a Jet Ranger Fuselage

Oooo! So nice, as usual, darthdrk!

I really like my King V2. I think you'll like it too.
The Belt CP is the size of a TRex correct? I'd consider a Belt CP if it's anything like the King V2.

Do you have any fuses, especially a Hughes 500D, that would fit the King V2? It's a touch bigger than the Axe CP.

Yes, the Belt Cp is the same size as the T-rex. I do make a 500D that will fit the King

heres a quick list of what will fit the AXE Cp and the HoneyBee King V2

The hughes 500D and E for the T-rex (not the micro)
The micro Hind D
The Micro Bell222 (new)
The Micro Airwolf (new)
The New UH-1D Huey
The New UH-1N Twin Huey
The New Apache AH-64
The Micro EC-145
The Micro AS350
The Micro BO-105
The A119 Koala
The Micro Jet Ranger

All these will fit just fine Keep in mind that some of these bodies has an elevated tail rotor location so moving the tail up on the fin may be a challenge for the Belt driven tail of the King V2

Thanks for the info!

I might just have to get a second King V2 and your 500D....
The 500D/E doesn't have an elevated tail, correct?

Does the air wolf body have re-tracts?
Do you have a webb site that you sell these from?

The 500E or D is a straight tail, not elevated
No retracts on the airwolf but there is a diagram and instructions on building a set in the instructions. You will probably spend about $12-15 bucks on material for retracts.
If you do a google search on my forum name "Darthdrk" you will find my site
Im trying not to violate any of the forum rules [&:]
