Well the honeybee cp2 flew right out of the box ,the tracking was right on. Comes with a li-po battery too. Happy I chose to buy one of these.

I decided to cut down the Esky CP2 Blades. It only takes a few minutes. I did three sets in about 10 minutes. I cut them to 225mm like the eFlite blades. It removed 0.4grams from each blade.

1. Remove the plastic root reinforcements
2. Mark the tip of one blade with a fine point pencil
3. Line up two blades at the tips and trailing edge and tape together with the pencil mark visible for cut
4. Cut them on a small bandsaw
5. Untape the blades. Brush some Medium CA onto the tips - cover the tips completely with CA - but don't drench the tips in CA.. It will wick under the covering and hold it secure. If you have ever fuelproofed exposed wood - this is about what you are trying to simulate, don't go crazy with the crazy glue :-)
6. Now Optionally use some 400-600 sandpaper to polish the tips. Best to do this just after the CA has cured - so the balsa you sand will fill in the seam under the cover even more. If you do this step - the blade tips will then be as smooth as originally covered - like glass, with no seam you can feel - very nice.
7. Resintall the root reinforcements, mount, balance & fly!


After CA and polishing

Bell-Hiller pics?

Does anyone have any pics of the E-sky Bell Hiller installed? I've put mine together but I'm having trouble setting it up. Just want to make sure I'm not totally off the page. The exploded view doesn't help much.

Figured it out

I finally figured out my problem. I had the rotor head set upside down. The servo throws was barely moving the pitch of the blades. I knew something wasn't right. Bad news, I broke a pitch control link making adjustments. From what little I did fly this new head assembly is really responsive. I think I'm going to like it.

Yes Nate you will notice it is more responsive. That's what I noticed right away when I flew my honeybee. I have the head parts waiting for my blade when it breaks. Hopefully my honeybee won't need them first. Those pitch arms are easy to bend so I suppose we should order two sets at least when we need them. Good job finding the solution to your problem.

Anybody who knows:

How would you rank the performance of the Esky CP2 head to the Hornets, 3d pro's, and Maxir heads?

Its a great price, inexpensive parts, is it worth considering compared to these other micro CP machines, or is it good but not AS good??

I finally desided to change my BCP over to Esky CP2 parts but
looking on the balsar.com and HelliHobbys I see that almost all
the parts are out of stock. Does anyone know of a place that
keep Esky CP2 parts is stock or is there a problem with getting
the parts?

I'd like to use the better Esky parts but at least I can get the BCP
parts at the LHS.

Thanks, Bob

Dear HeliHobby,

your communication skills suck. Not your selection, not your prices, not your ability to pull parts properly and ship them timely. But your SORRY ASS COMMUNICATION SKILLS - and it overrides all of those other things. It makes everything that is GOOD about your company INACCESSBILE - USELESS.

I will never order anything from you again because I can't trust you to contact me if there is any problem - nor do you answer ANY EMAIL or YOUR PHONE - and it is completely unacceptable.

Has anyone had a problem with the CP2 wanting to pitch up in FF?
CG is correct. I have it trimmed out to hold a level hover, but while in FF I have to hold in a lot of down to keep it level, which introdices porpoising at times. It doesn't do this with the Hiller-only head from my Blade CP. I'm all ears if anybody has any ideas.

I finally started flying my BH head last week, with the Eflite carbon blades. It's all good. (I am also flying the Cnetury auto gear - so maybe not a great comparison)

I really worked my head parts to smooth them out before I put it together and mounted it on the heli. I used a small diamond file to break all the sharp edges and also polished the head where the pitch slider does its magic.

When you say it is pitching in FF, does it want to 'pitch' nose up/tail down, or does it 'pop up' in altitude while maintaining attitude?

It's pitching nose up/tail down. Altitude doesn't change except for the "porpoising" effect.

Stealth, or whoever else did the bell-hiller upgrade from e-sky parts, could you post some detailed pictures of the head?

I'm either missing parts, or extremely stupid.
This is not my first collective pitch helicopter...

Mainly the problem lies in the "rotor head set" portion of the upgrade. Connecting the arms to rectangular piece of it, and then connecting the rectangular piece to the main rotor hub...

Here are some super expando images (ps - put your anti rotation pin through the anti rotation bracket - this pic doesn't show it - it was just to hold up the head )

PS - I am also flying the 3BB Eflite grips on my setup.

Thanks buddy

Looks like they pulled a fast one on me. The center hub and rotor head set do not match yours, they are close, but this is the reason for my inability to put this baby together...

I wonder if E-Sky changed the design a little...

Oh well... I'll just have to wait for the E-Flite upgrades

Yeah - a pic is worth a thousand words. I got all my stuff from balsapr about 2 months ago. The head is square, not round like the old Esky CP or the current Eflite head.

Well the new E-Sky head is also square. It is slimmer, and it does not have a slit going both ways, only the one way for the flybar. The rotor head set is now a several piece set that needs brass collars to assemble (that were not included). I do not believe that the newer (freshly upgraded) E-Sky parts will work with the Blade CP... At least not as easily as before...

I also ordered from balsapr. All the part numbers are the same, just new parts.

Wow - I didn't realize they had already changed the BH head design again for the CP2... I'll have to check that out.

It's not changed by much, just enough to make it difficult for me.

Ah, $#!T!!! I just got my order from BalsaPR. It has the round center hub and the multi-piece rotor head set. Did I waste the money on this order? I HATE paying shipping charges especially if I have to order a 2 dollar item like the bushings to make this work. If I had known this was going to happen I would have just gotten the stock Blade parts I needed instead.
