I think it depends on your skill level. If you have never flown a helicopter with fixed pitch then go with the HoneyBee FP as it is more durable. The Wasp V3 FP flies much better with a superior tail and power. But I think it will be more costly in a crash. The Wasp is smaller than the Honeybee but it can handle more wind due to its higher head speed.

Never having a hbfp I can't comment on it, but I have had a Sabre, which I think is a very similar setup.

In my opinion the Wasp is a far superior heli, more stable due to headspeed as PAS mentioned, easier to setup and balance.
The downside is the narrow landing gear, but if your using training near no worries.
