I just get mine off ebay. I got 3 sets for 5.00 shipped.

Another place and I know of, because I have bought from him, and they work great, is get them from RTF-heli.com he has them, along with other items for the 180D, and starting in the next week or so he will carry all parts for the CB180D/Q and madhawk 300.

Thanks guys for all the input but I ended up ordering a SR hoping it will be here middle of the week. I know it is a CP not FP but I like the fact when time comes I can bind it to my DX6i. Going to start putting my T-Rex 500 together today. When the SR gets here my grandson and I will have 11 helicopters, 1 plane 30 or so cars and trucks.[X(] Will be selling some of the cars and trucks as we do not have time to run them all.

Hey all,

Haven't been on this particular thread in a while - but I fly my [link=http://www.besthobbysite.com/shop/product_info.php?cPath=150_152&products_id=12592]Walkera CB180D[/link] every second day - indoors!
I read a while back the suggestion of buying lighter weights for the flybar to provide less stability in hover[sm=72_72.gif] and thus better FF. I just received my HM-5#10-Z-02 "Balance Block" designed for a 5#10 (obviously) and can report that they ARE lighter and DO easily screw onto the threads at the ends of the flybar!
After my test flight tomorrow, I will report back with how well they behaved........

Peter[sm=shades_smile.gif]
P.S. Pics below show the original flybar weights (10.0g), and the 5#10 flybar weights (7.0g)

Hey again,

...another thing that I have found is that it flys more evenly & spritely with a lower weight lipo than the 1000mAh. I use [link=http://cgi.ebay.com.au/2x-ECPOWER-900mAh-7-4V-LIPO-LI-PO-BATTERY-AKKU-LAMA-B_W0QQitemZ180486469369QQcmdZViewItemQQptZUK_ToysG ames_RadioControlled_JN?hash=item2a05d4f6f9]ECPower 7.4V 900mAh 15C[/link] successfully - and get a slightly shorter flight time. The lower AUW gives the bird more lift (and more room in the battery area) with this lipo.

Peter[sm=shades_smile.gif]
P.S. If you watch the item in my ebay it should show both price & shipping in your currency........ For me they are 80c + $11.41 shipping (Australian Dollars) = $12.21 FOR TWO LIPOS...

Well took the cb180d outside man just the slight 2mph breeze and this thing doesnt move and gets really upset...I guess i'll have to fly in the blistering heat when its really humid and dead hot air...I got it up to about 10 feet and its like the lil bit of breeze took it over.

yeah any wind and your in for a wild ride, i went as far as moving my flybar arms to the outside thinking i could get some more movement out of her, but it still isnt enough. i got the tail motor mod on mine so its a little heavier in teh rear, my swash is already at a 45 almost just to hover and keep it level.

find a big barn or a school gym to fly in or like u said a hot humid day with no wind.... YAY

I'm starting to liking the looks of the blade SR....It seems preety decent to fly outside. New heli though not many parts so goin to wait. I'm just tired of flying it in my 15x10 garage...cant really move the 180d around. I had to trim it all the way forward and still couldnt fight the 2mi breeze...Anything over 7-8ft and the jet stream takes the heli over!!

I just cant see paying $400-$500 for a heli which I know i will probably crash...I'm pretty good with the cb180d...my 53q3 can handle more wind than the 180d...

Hey again All,

I actually got to quote myself - wow!

Anyway, I was asked to report back on the lighter flybar weights - so here goes:

They DO affect flight very slightly - making it IMO smoother and more even in hover. The lower head (rotating) mass means that any sudden movements of the cyclic are evened out - another plus for the mild flier! They also make the throttle seem to have more power - probably due to lighter weight - but I don't want to overemphasise this as it is fairly minor.........in combination with a lighter weighted lipo (perhaps a GE Power 900mAh 15C from [link=http://cgi.ebay.com.au/2-x-RC-Lipo-battery-7-4V-900mah-15c-Lama-V4-GE-Power_W0QQitemZ260464578399QQcmdZViewItemQQptZRadi o_Control_Parts_Accessories?hash=item3ca4e60f5f#ht _2681wt_958]HERE[/link])

My advice is to order some 5#10 flybar weights for yourself. They are a straight "plug & play" item - no modding whatsoever. Just unscrew the gold-coloured originals and replace them with the silver-coloured 5#10 weights - the BEST thing is that it is totally reversible!

Peter[sm=shades_smile.gif]
P.S. ANY breeze is a no-no for these light-weight birds. The best place to fly is in a large arena (such as an indoor soccer or BB court)

Hey again everybody,
[link=http://www.besthobbysite.com/shop/product_info.php?currency=USD&cPath=239_235_237&products_id=13163&osCsid=nav9crmj1iaabrilmkugaqmoh7]THIS[/link] is my latest purchase. I have a feeling that the shipping to the US for same would put it out of the Q for those fliers, but it wasn't to much to here in Australia!

Peter[sm=shades_smile.gif]
P.S. When it arrives I will tell you if it holds everything (including my spare blades and 5#10 weights) OK........

Default RE: Walkera CB180D - just got it!

i had to order a main gear for my 180d yesterday as it blew over while i was spooling it up (yeah a big gust of wind) and it broke the bottom of the gear off where the pin locks it in.  so i went ahead and got a set of the lighter weights like pgroom did. we will see how it performs.


wowhobbies.com is about the best price and definitely the fastest on shipping. place is great
