    Upper main bearing stabilizer

    I designed and built high speed (up to 100K rpm) powere, surgical instruments for many years. We always used a wave washer against the inner or outer race on ball bearings. This keeps the bearing...

    RE: Honeybee King v2 tuner shop

    Thanks, will give that a try. A new frame is only $6 but the time to put it together could take some planning.

    Thanks Dave, I appreciate your input.

    I had forgotten about the problems that Rusty had pointed out for the HBKIII radio stuff so have taken that off my list. I am checking out the Walkera but...

    Joizeex,

    Thanks for reminding me. I believe you are correct that Rusty mentioned a lot of problems. I will check out the Walkera and keep looking.

    I think the problem is a renovated fire...

    RE: Honeybee King v2 tuner shop

    I am going to have to make the move to 2.4 if I want to fly three of my birds. I cannot get around the interference on the 72 channel no matter what I try. My single 2.4 CX2 has no problems. So, my...

    Thanks, I will check out some of the upgrades. It just bumms me out that you spend nearly $200 on a new heli that works but needs to have another $200 in aftermarket stuff to make it work like you...

    Thanks Dopesick. Did the blade clipping actually work?

    The flybar fix sounds good but the extended shaft seems that would put additional leverage and stress on the lower framework during a...

    Hi All,

    Just looked at this thread. Great information. I used a gift card from Verizon to buy a new CX2 through Amazon. The certificate was restricted to only a couple stores. Not sure why I...

    Hey Rsuty,

    RE: Honeybee King v2 tuner shop

    Not Futaba, just the stock Tx and Rx. The crystals can be pulled from the Tx but not the Rx. But I have a feeling there is more involved than just switching a crystal and getting a new Rx.

    Thanks, I figured I could just glue it. It does not look like anything is broken but somewhere along the line the two parts are no longer together. Perhaps in production during...

    Rusty,

    What would I need to do to convert my 72 to 2.4? There is interference in my area that is off and on and very frustrating. What do you have?

    Thanks,

    RE: Honeybee King v2 tuner shop

    I am running the G401B with the stock servo and it works great. One thing you might want to check is the switch needs to set to reverse if yours is on the stock mounting plate, behind the head. On my...

    Osterizer,

    I do agree with you, it is a bit distasteful, they should have named it somthing else. However, I have never used the Futaba gyro or even knew about it. All I learned was reading...

    Fairnot,

    I ended up getting the 401 for $36. It seems to work great. I read about it somewhere on the RC Universe forum where a lot of guys tested it and loved it. I only have about 30 minutes...

    Does your gyro start blinking AFTER the start up sequence?

    I think one or more of your servos is too far to one side or the other. Be sure your servos are centered as well as your controlls...

    Rusty, I appreciate your comments. When I first saw it I thought it had a quality look. The price is definitely within a reasonable budget. How it sets up may be another story.
