Who has the best service and price on the Honey Bee CP2?

I was ready to order an Eflight Blade CP, but that appears to be an upgrade money pit. My main concern is the availability and cost of replacement parts.

Finally, can the Honey Bee 4-in-1 controller be hacked the same as the Blade, or are they completely different? I want to use my own JR 9303 transmitter.

I plan to save the T-rex/X-400 projects for springtime and fly the Honey Bee/Blade indoors until the snow stops blowing.

Tyler,
I found this site while surfing. I have not ordered from them yet but they have a good reputation.
I don't know about the CP2 4-in-1. In pictures it looks about the same but hopefully someone else will have an answer.

The 4 in 1's are the same and can both be modified. Another source for the HoneyBee CP 2 is http://www.balsaproducts.com

I have both the Blade CP and the HoneyBee CP2. While essentially similar machines, the slower responding Hiller head of the Blade may be easier to hover. The Bell-Hiller head of the of the HoneyBee is definitely more responsive. I would expect that once the Blade is upgraded with the optional Bell-Hiller head and symetrical rotor blades, that performance will be esentially similar.

As for supplies, I've ordered from Balsa Products. Their customer service and responsiveness is exceptional. Great customer service, great pricing, and fast shipping, I highly recommend them.

Good videos here on Deetee's site
http://www.deeteeenterprises.com/NS...bee2.Videos.php

I got mine from Balsa products. instead of buying the full combo I bought the basic arfkit for $75, 6ch GWS receiver, 3 servos, the "3 in 1" controller and a 700mah 3cell lipo. I have $220 in this setup and fly it with my Futaba 7c. By going this route and using the separate receiver you eliminate the need to do the "hack". Using the $25 700mah pack give great performance because it is lighter than the 1000mah packs. It flys about 8 minutes.

I'll second or third the recommendation of balsaproducts. Only problem is they are out of stock on some of the more easily broken bits. The only place that is cheaper is Helihobby that I've found, but then everyone here will tell you they are evil incarnate, so... stick with Balsaproducts.

I'd like to try deetee, but their website makes my eyes bleed.
