Honey bee fp vs Honey bee cp3

The honey bee fpv2 is the same price as the honey bee cp3, should I get the cp3? I want to fly an easier fp heli, but i could the cp3. Does the cp3 fly similar to the fp? Is the only diff. is that the cp3 can go upside down>>

The cp3 is a collective pitch heli which means more moving parts, you can also fly 3d with it. The FP is a fixed pitch heli, which I have the V1 and it is simple to work, and I have yet to break a part in a crash, they are really durable.

The cp3 is going to be harder and more expensive to fix after a crash. If your new at flying I suggest you get the fp. I started with the cp2. I took a long time to learn due to having to repair and setup after each crash. The fp doesn't have as much head speed, so they don't break as much in a crash. Or hurt as much when it hits you.

Is there anybody who can help me on repair of my HoneyBee CP3? There was a crash with another helicopter and now the main blade are not in equal position, but one is let say straight and the other is cca. 45° flare outward. When I put the battery in some servos are working constantly, but the blades are not being moved at all... I have some pictures...

Check all the links on the head and make sure it's symmetrial. Looks like one of the links from the blade holders is either broken off or was twisted to the wrong side.

Looks like it's just twisted up. Should be as easy as popping off the link and resetting the blade. I'm impressed by it's durability if that's all that's wrong.
