Hardest part is telling the wife I bought yet another helicopter. lol

Well friend has a Blade CP and The hobby shop right down the hill sells parts for the cp2 and the blade, so its just easier to get parts.. Dont think I have given up on the VNR3D

But the sad thing is venom might loose alot of support for the parts shortage, thats the only bad thing!

Very true... I have r/c boats and cars that are into the $1000's, this isnt a bad price.. Jesus the cp2 out the door cost me $160 shipped overnight! Thats nothing for an r/c toy

LOL sounds like I good idea... I almost ordered some 22E parts.. their the same thing..The venom parts have a #22 on them.... Thats means they use the same molds!

Next time I need parts thats what Im going to do! Unless venom gets their parts orders in...

This parts problem is pretty frustrating, but it's only temporary... Actually, my heli is probably better off when I can't find the parts. LOL I could swear, the last few times I crashed, I thought I heard a scream just before it hit the ground. Could this be considered toy abuse ??? Dennis

Ive heard ya'll talking about the #22 parts and was wondering if the tail motors apply too? Mine just crapped-out on me today and I need one quick!! I don't know how long I can go!! This hobby is an addiction, Im already jittering waiting for the next "fix"

also, has anyone put another manufac. motor on one of these, like maybe a bcp? Would it be worth it? or is the gyro and thottle curves set up for the original tail motor?

Bluesjunky57,
The bcp motor doesn't have enough power and it has the wrong gear... don't do it.
My LHS has the tail motors in stock and lots of other parts now even the seesaws ya should check and see if they restocked by you.
I'm on my 3rd tail motor.
P.S. the motor will come out of the case with the gear on ya just got to tilt it to one side and pull on it.
To windy the last few days to try goin inverted still waiting.

Beat the kids not the heli!

Ok I'll stop LOL
