Blade CP fully CCPM Micro RTF Helicopter

Hello,

I currently have a FP heli (colco) and the rotofly and they both have served well. Now I am considering a CP heli but do not want to spend a fortune as I am not yet an expert. I have been looking at the Blade CP from helihobby which is 100% RTF and comes with everything. Does any one have suggestions, feedback, experience with this heli? Is this heli suitable for indoor flying (house)? Also, is this heli good at flying in windy conditions? And is this a micro size heli?

Thanks

Hello jmc,

Lots of great info on the BCP can be found in this and many other threads here on the forum:

http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=394513

If you are comfortable flying your FP heli you should have no trouble flying the BCP. And although the BCP is a micro class heli, it can be flown outdoors in some wind and indoors too (preferably in larger areas such as a gym, although it can be hovered in a smaller area/room).

Beware Helihobby

If you do a search here, you will find LOTS of negative comments on HeliHobby. I've heard good comments on these guys....

I learned to fly heli's with the BCP - I have also flown it in some pretty high wind at the DEAF show this year, it will take more than wind than you think......

Really? I have purchased from them before and never had a problem although this will be the 1st time I actually purchase a heli from them. The stock nimh battery for this heli, what is the voltage/mah?

Can the lipo be used with the stock electronics?

Ok,

Now I am not sure which heli to get. Blade CP fully CCPM Micro RTF Helicopter or the E-Sky CCPM Honey Bee. The honey bee comes with a lipo and charger. The difference in price is around 15 bucks. Based on helihobby these 2 are the same except for the canopy. Anyone want to comment on the E-Sky?

from what I've read the HB CP2 is more responsive as it comes with bell/hiller mixing, it also comes with symmetrical blades and lipos stock ..... the bell/hiller kit will be out soon for the Blade, which comes with flat bottom blades and a nimh battery, otherwise they are pretty much the same
