I know for nitro, something or more than something will be busted...

so how sturdy are thses micro/mini helis? CP in particular.. exactly how hardy are they?

you can hit the ground/wall/table/floor... and still be ok?

what are the electric rules with regards to this?

if this is the case, this part sounds alot better than the nitros..... less crash costs?

insight would be helpful :-)

thanks,

Loz

I believe this is the tail motor:

tail motor

There's a thread in the HB forum about it. Not so good for 3s, better for 2s.

so, they can take quite a beating?

even the CP's?

how come they dont totally destroy themselves like nitros, even though they are running higher headspeeds?

their very flexible and light weight, now i'm speaking for the fp i'm not sure if the cp is as crash resistant,i think they are a little more fragile but not much

I've wrecked my CP HB a few times now and so far I've only broken blades. The new Elite HBs have much stronger skids and boom supports and a much better frame and boom connection design. I flew straight into the side of my house once and the other times I set down HARD on pavement and slid into a column between my garage doors. I did manage to pop the swash apart, but it went right back together. So far, it's much more durable than my older v2 HB.

crash costs will be considerably less!

CP Piccolo crashes very well too. The only thing that you have to worry about breaking is the pitch slider which is only 9 bucks. The plastic swash anti rotation pin will break but is easily jerry rigged. If you don't want the pitch slider to break just get the aluminum one. Only problem though, like you said, they are at a higher head speed and the energy has to go somewhere. Not likely to destroy anything on the chassis since it is so robust. On the piccolo CP, the most common damage is the pitch slider and pitch rods.
