    RE: Axe CP 2.4 - 2 questions

    Charging a battery from totally dead at 1C takes 2 hours. Fancier chargers can charge at higher rates, but only on packs that are rated for higher charging current. If you want to fly more frequently...

    RE: Hosed myself on Ebay purchase?

    ARK have been around for a while- their 325mm heli was sold for a long time as the MX 450 by Tower Hobbies. They were decent helis, but not updated with time so went by the wayside. I was moderately...

    The part from the MX 400 should work.

    RE: helimax mx 400 pro

    Good one, dragus. It's a belt drive, so making sure the belt isn't loose is a good idea.

    RE: helimax mx 400 pro

    There are only a few reasons for that, John- bad tail servo, tail sticking, gyro orientation reversed, or a bad gyro.

    RE: mx400 main gear

    I don't know if it would fit physically (never tried), but it would need re-gearing if it did. The TR gears are 150 tooth, while the MX uses a 138T gear.
  7. RE: Retireing cpv3, cp pro2 or honey bee king3

    The HBK is a good heli (and it is a belt tail). It's smaller than 325s like the TRex and Blade 400, but it flies well with good electronics.

    Both links are going to the CF kit.

    Ron, you do NOT need another helicopter :).

    RE: GYRO?

    It may, depending on what gyro system you get. Some of the gyro systems have trainer modes that make it easier to fly, but that limits what you can learn.

    Welcome, sarmeneau. I'm still flying mine occasionally, but not nearly as much as before. The parts are the main issue. Last time I was on Tower, the parts selection was getting a little scarce. I've...

    RE: Honeybee King v2 tuner shop

    A better radio will make a good bit of difference in what you can do with the heli and how well you understand it. It sounds like you're doing ok with the heli, so it could be a good step up for you....

    You can't fit packs that would give you any significantly greater flying time in the frame.

    RE: Mx450Sx Battery upgarde

    Generally about a 2100mAh 3S pack will work, since they're mostly a similar size, but you should look at the physical measurements of a pack you're considering to be sure the new one will physically...
  16. RE: Axe 400 RTF Tail Rotor Failure First Flight

    This may be a silly question, but is the belt tensioned? If not, it's not a defect, just typical for "RTF." You do have to check fasteners, verify the pitch and collective, and so forth, even on an...

    Very common is worn out dampers. Also, slower head speed developing as batteries age- the two are different sides of the same problem.

    Fub stilll don't have the array of receiver choices that Spektrum does. They've expanded a lot in the last year, though, especially the smaller stuff.

    RE: Honeybee King v2 tuner shop

    I don't know the reasons behind that. The antennae on the FASST receivers are on leads about 4" long, so you can position them to avoid shadowing or polarity issues- that could be the reason, too.

    For older Spektrum, yes. The Futaba systems resync almost as quickly as a PCM radio.

    RE: Best Heli for long term use

    If you really want a smaller helicopter, then the ESky King 3 is a decent flier and has an active following online. It has a number of options you can add to it.
