true, I may give it a try....... I'll have to check my LHS to see if they have the links for the blade in stock. Altho I'm still waiting on my servos to get here before I can get the esky put together. I think I'm going to have to turn around and order the screws to mount the servos, not sure if the esky's come with them or not.

I must be blind because I can't find the Esky CP2 parts on the helihobby site. Did they stop selling them?

They are still there: The BLADE and ESKY parts are in one section - so you have to go to PAGE 5 to start seeing Esky parts.

http://www.helihobby.com/html/ESKY5.html

scroll to bottom to see the first Esky parts - then keep going to the next pages. Esky parts start with part# EK

as of this posting (edited) - page 5-7 are Esky parts.

Now you just have to hope they have what they say they do, and that it actually comes to you.

IMHO, you may want to avoid Helihobby. Thier customer service does not seem too terriffic. I sent multiple questions to them and never recieved any response.

I just placed my first order with Helidirect (http://www.helidirect.com). They have all the Esky parts, and my order came in three days with free shipping.

Ordered a HB King and Parts (want to get a TREX, but I'm not ready to trash that nice a copter yet). ;-)

FYI, the HB King is VERY nice for the money, IMHO.

Just my two cents for what it's worth.

Regards,
Lee

I have gotten stuff from them before without problems. If I did have a problem and they didn't answer the phone I would just drive there as it's only an hour or so.

Installed the main shaft,and gear in the BladeCP. The shaft is way too tall,or long. Moved the control rods into the upper holes in the servo arms,still too long? Ron S

I think the easiest way to do the conversion,would be to buy The WHOLE AIRFRAME from balsausa. Heck it's 75.00! Then you have all the right parts period! Ron S

E-Sky HB Frame

I think HeliDirect sells the whole frame for $69.99.

Latest Failure in the main shaft conversion! Don't press the pinion gear on the motor shaft to make it line up with the spur gear on the main shaft! I moved the control rods up into the top hole on the servo arms,and there is no way to get 1/2inch between the top of the shaft,and top of the swash plate! In stead use a spacer on top of the spur gear,and everything will fit right up! Now,after pressing the pinion gear farther onto the motor shaft,I need to: 1. drive 140miles round trip and get a pinion gear puller,or 2. drive 140miles round trip and get another 9T motor! Use spacers(washers,or brass tubing) to get the spur gear to line up with the pinion gear,DON'T PRESS THE PINION GEAR,FARTHER DOWN ON THE MOTOR SHAFT! RON S

lsnover, keep us posted on how it goes with the King. I'm thinking the same way you are. However, I have to ask, why the King and not the Cool? It seems like you get a bigger heli with a nice motor with the Cool, for just a few bucks more.

Well,the kid down the street,saved my bacon! He races rc cars,and had a pinion puller! I have now discovered that with the BladeCP frame you can use a Main motor shaft bearing as the spacer on the bottom of the shaft when using the E-Sky main shaft Part# EFLH1121. I also discovered that I had to add 4 Head Dampening Shims when I rebuilt the rotor spindle! There was allways a little side to side play on the feathering shaft between the grips,but not now! I also replaced the Rotor Head Set! I had used a 15/64 drill bit to open the old one up(part of the sticky collective cure,according to E-flite)and it had alot of slop in it. It didn't stick,but was too loose! I did work POWDERED GRAPHITE into the head parts before assembley,everything works as smooth as silk now! It flys better than it ever did,even when it was new! Plus the E-Sky main shaft is alot harder metal,and not near as soft! I'm not sure what did the trick,but I can now pull it up into a hover,and let go of the right stick for around 5 seconds,and it just hangs there! It is much more stable! Ron S
