Waiting on parts made me do it!
Well, if you read my last blog post you've noticed I got and subsequently crashed my new Honeybee CP2. Since I don't have any good LHS I went online and found the parts I needed. I decided to order from HeliDirect.com, which has fare prices.
Unfortunately I made the order on the 14th and it's been sitting in "Processing" limbo since then. Because of this I decided to browse the for sale section on the forums.
EVIL they are! I've found WAY too much stuff that I want and am tempted to buy from you all.
One of the things I found was someone selling a Honeybee CP2 airframe with direct drive tail.
Heck, I couldn't resist. Just the sight of a CP2 intact (unlike mine) was enough to sway me so I PMed the seller. Gotta admit I did try a lowball, but finally jumped in at asking price.
So what are my plans for this airframe? Well, I thought for a minute that I'd hack it up for spare parts but you know, I just can't work up the heart to do that. I'll most likely be putting it in flying order.
It's already got the motors, just no servos or 4in1. I THINK that I have some micro servos that work. Else there's a source for E-Sky servos that I have for pretty cheap, so that's covered.
As for the 4in1 though I think I'll be trying to set it up with separates. I've already got 2 gyros on hand from back when I had my LMHs, plus a micro receiver. The only thing I'd need to buy there is a 2in1 (main/rotor) ESC mixer.
Who knows though. My wife may kill me well before that for getting back into (addicted) to this hobby again.
