HelicopterBeginners Corner › Honey bee king and torque tube...

Well the first thing thats bothering me is how much of a diffrence does a torque tube make, and is it easy to find for electrics as an upgrade if its a belt driven model? Because from what I understand the belt driven models can slip a little, and the belt needs frequent replacement. (But I'm unsure of this)

The other thing is, would it be worth it to get a HBK from a Blade CP (which I currently crash... er I mean fly...)

I would like to keep a 'culdesac'(sp?) flyer, as there is a very little traffic in the one next to my house, and everybody in it knows to avoid the toy controlled by the yahoo at the helm

So I guess basicly is it worth getting the Honey Bee King for more tail authority, and will it do aerobatics when I get to that point? or should I skip that and just upgrade the Blade CP, and then get somthing better?

Because I cant find any real informative reviews on the HBK which tell me what I need, like flight times, and aerobatic capability.

TIA for your help!

Is the torque tube important enough to be needed? I'm also jumping between a nitro and electric, will probibly get a 450, if not a nitro next... Still need a few things first though, chargers not here yet, I'm ordering a Futaba 9c super when I get my check (If i can afford it ofcourse)

Stupid addictive hobby..... but atleast it could keep me busy if my next GF tries to beat the crap outa me when I'm sleeping, call the cops that I'm abusing here, and send me to jail for a weekend till they figure out I'm the only one with bruises.... Or, maybe I wont have time to deal with crazy ones anymore, roflol
