Yippee!
I'm back!, with a good helicopter too.

I have finally managed to get to the point that i can stabily get hovering just above eye level! but then i look at all the work I have had to do to the thing, being able to fly it is well deserved.


:setup: honey bee cp2 with the brushless setup and some extra parts.

lol, not much, but it does work verry well.

it took me a long time (10 hours plus or minus a little + all the time flying to get my flying skill up.) to get to this point and a lot of money (300 dollars or more) to get a good flight and a good flying heli.

i just wish it had a faster lerning curve, but thats life.

BTW, thats only the time and money I spent on this heli, i had a honey bee fp and put 200 dollars in it and only got back 50 when i sold it so put an extra 150 dollars on the learning price tag,(total about 450 dollars) and thats a lot of money for me, hey im only 13.

Why did you have to put that much money in it to be able to hover?

I didn't i wanted more power, so i got the brushless motor, and a lot of the money was for repairs.
