Things take usually a bit longer time than expected.

This is the first presentation of a fully working webshop, that should be presented more than two weeks ago:

http://beta.hobbyeurope.com/rc/helic...ts/helicopters

We start a beta version with these few items, just to be sure that everything is working out smoothly.

This is now a working webshop that can be ordered from.

There are much more items in stock. These items will be added continuously.

I like your new website appearance but I don't like the fact that prices are going up.
For example Linear servo in the old website used to cost 5€ and now it got up to 15€, canopy in the old website used to cost 6€ and now it got up to 9€.

With such expensive parts I start thinking of selling my FBL100, any buyer?

As already stated, this is a beta version.

We have taken note of your remarks.

Canopies of this size and quality usually has a market price of around 9.
Larger quantity will lower this price.

The linear servo of this quality is expensive too.
It is the servo mechanism that cost most.
Maybe we can offer this mecanism as a separate spare part.

In the meantime we can lower the price of these spare parts.

HobbyEurope can you give some details about the RF module.
Will it work with Futabe 7c ? Does it come with assorted plugs for different Tx ?
Thanks

I wonder what insane quality a 15 euro linear servo is like. I've bought complete receiver boards with 2 linear servos that last up till today but even this complete receiver was cheaper than 2 of these servos.

Also, it's easy to talk about quality, but the proof is in how the stuff holds out when flown and sometimes abused. As long as a product hasn't earned a reputation that it's decent quality, you most likely won't get away with asking top rate prices. But we've had this discussion before. If you want people to get convinced of the superior quality of this heli, maybe you should send samples to some unbiased people to test fly and hear their opinions.

The answer is yes.

The RF module version does pretty much the same as a BNF.

It is a cost effective production issue to manufacture both a BNF and a RF module.

The HiSKY X-6S TX can be used on all the HiSky products and can be programmed to optimized performance.

... no, unfortunately the blade-tail assembly ist not a direct drop in-part - the hisky (turnigy) fbl100 asks for a femal (!) tailmotor-plug, the mcpx-tailmotorwire comes along with a male plug!!. furthermore the poles seem to be inverted, at least the tailboom of the hisky is a square one, the mcpx round

... but with a little soldering and filing one may get along... i didnot try it yet

I've noticed that there is a little tail wag after each rudder input. Is it normal? The transmitter is the 6X so I can't adjust gyro gain.

... same issue with mine... but after replacement of the tailrotor: i changed to the original hisky-tailrotor, which is a lot greater than that one i used befor (kbdd-blades...)...? perhaps it gives to much pressure...

The same case here. Tail wag appeared after replacement of the tail rotor.

sounds interessting ... i replaced the tail-motor also ...

... but i guess the new tailrotor ive got is to big... it gives a little bit to much pressure or force to the tail that overburdens the gyro ... but on the other hand it gives crispy stopps at pirouettes

... have a look on the three very different tail-rotors ive got, all of them accounted as functional part for this little bird...

the first came as original hisky-fbl 100 sparepart,
the second as kbdd tuning-blade
the third was the original part out of the box (as turnigy fbl 100 from hk, a renamed hisky....)

most tail wag with the biggest one

macem

beg your pardon for the imprecise measurement, in accordance with the manual, the hisky tailrotor is 4,5 cm, so the half should be 2,25....
