Take a look at the mixing bars on the e-1003 head. They are offset and look like it's a direct bolt on.

With the direct drive Honey Bee CP3 motor I would say that
we have the tail motor whooped (if it lasts as long as people say).

You know the wasp is only $155, that's about what I've put into my 9116.
- just ordered a wasp, talked myself into it. :-)

Really nice find, resago! If this mixing arm fits, it could be a VERY cost effective way to upgrade the mixing arms on the 9116. It's $1 at banggood right now.

Here is another photo that better shows the offset:

Paypal accepted. My whole order process took 30 seconds.

Pull the trigger mate.


Done deal. Got a new canopy also, mine is so beat to death. I'm starting to feel like I'm really polishing a turd. Almost tempted to build my own from scratch.

For $1 !!!

How cool is that? Even if it does not fit, no worries, it's $1

I know, right?? I ordered 3, because it would be a steal if the top shaft fits the 9116.

Hrmmmm, I had noticed a lot of swashplates laid out like the one below, but didn't really stop to think about it. Now that you mention it, wouldn't the rear servo & side servo combo eliminate the need for channel mixing for pitching and rolling? If so, is that a design benefit?
