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).
One gentleman has over 200 flights with no drop in performance.
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?
