I noticed by chance that you edited out the model info (referred to King 2 ?) which is really needed to give an accurate answer, as there are 2 different main shaft sizes used across the Honey Bee model range.
So, for the King 2, it's 5mm and HBFP's are 3mm.
Do you have the parts layout diagram for the heli in question or a set of digital calipers? The parts diagram lists bearing sizes.

Oh crap, I thought the V1 and V2 both used a 3mm shaft so I took it out of the description.

I ordered some 5*10*3mm bearings. I hope the 3 part is for the inner diameter

Yup definately ordered king 2 not V2 parts

Anyone want to buy some unused king2 bearings and frames. I have two sets of each arriving in the mail soon

Anyone have a link for v1 or v2 parts? I need two frames and two sets of main shaft bearings that fit a 3mm shaft. So any heli parts for a 3mm shaft will work for my needs if the Honeybee stuff isn't available any more.

Can anyone confirm that the Honeybee CP2 uses a 3mm main shaft?

Yes, the main shaft for the CP2 is 3mm.
The top and bottom main shaft bearings are 3x6x2.5, the same as is used on the hb fixed pitch v1 & 2.
First measurement is the inner size, second is the outer size and last is the height.
