Default What do you guys think Honeybee CP3

right now I fly 2 different Nano's wich are a Heli-Max Novus FP Nano & a Heli-Max Novus CP Nano. I want to get into something bigger. I know a Guy who has a HoneyBee CP3 2.4ghz. Is there Heli worth it at all for 100 bucks?

If you know someone that has one, why don't you just check it out yourself and see if it's worth it to you? Personally, from that size up I think anything with a motor driven tail is a waste of time and money, but that's just my opinion.

The E-SKY CP3 is a entry level 6-Channel CP helicopter. It can quickly be upgraded to be a really nice heli when you are ready. We bought this heli about a month ago to test it out. It's okay for $99.00(USD). We have since upgraded it to CNC MEtal Parts and changed the Main motor to brushless. The Tail motor is a vast improvement over the CP2 Tail motor. Direct Drive is very easy to replace over BELTS. The DD Motor also lasts about 3 times longer than the older smaller tail motors. E-SKY has improved and kept prices low.

Okay, we have just completed our latest mod for the entry level 6-Channel E-SKY HB CP3 CP helicopter. A high speed brushless main motor to complement the Direct Drive (DD) tail motor. We also added the Super Skids 200 landing gear system, the E-SKY Metal Rotor head Kit, as well as the Carbon Fiber Tail boom, Carbon Fiber laminate composite blades, and a vertical fin with real metal tail struts. We also changed the LIPO battery to a higher "c" rated LIPO of 20c with a 30c top-end burst. We then added a 3-amp ATO Fast blow fuse for the stock Direct Drive Motor and added a nice ON/OFF Power switch for convenience.
