yeah but Its more like"the HBK is a great heli at a good price,you should try it" not "throw out your Blade and get a HBK"....the whole upgrade/mod tail thing is trying to get a good tail on a small heli...why not buy one that has a good tail?....and I'm still not interupting everyother post about a blade,bashing it and saying "get a HBK"

I understand. However, in principle, it is still "get a better heli" statement. That is no different from get a TRex. Perhaps it is not received with much resentment because, the King 2 is more feasible. The Trex line sounds condescending because the setup is more expensive.

EXACTLY...we are talking two different ballparks here....$600-800 to get a good rex flying.....most people who have a BLADE can switch all the electronics and get a HBK flying for about $100-120 dollars or about the price of 6 mos worth of motors........its also size the T-rex is not even in the same class,a lot of people, myself included like the 300 size

I'm still hoping I can get my HBK2 hovering indoors. Man the 300 size heli is great they should be classified as indoor/outdoor helis be it a blade cpp or HBK2. I knew I shouldn't of mentioned that four letter word (trex). It doesn't belong in this thread as well as the HBK2 does not. I now feel bad for Hi-jacking a whole group I even tried to get moderator to start one he thought there wasn't enough traffic for HBK2. I just believe it is a great cheap solution for the whole tail scenario's. I will try to move my topics to new E-heli section.

heres my step children I love them both.

I always feel like I'm stepping on toes when I mention the T it has a loyal following. But I'm not trying to compare a well thought out heli I know nothing about to the CP or the HBK2. I will never fly a heli of that caliber as I will always be just a backyard micro heli basic flight pilot. I went HBK2 because it had all the basics already there Upgrading my BCPP was very intense and a little expensive. I might of changed my mind if someone would put together a simple upgrade kit for the bcpp all in one box there are so many great mods but none of them are together.

Never say never until you try it. I too said I'll be a backyard flyer. When I started flying the micro at the field, I knew how much more the skies had to offer. It is so much safer with much more room. I found my backyard skills improving as I transitioned from field to backyard.

ok never may of been too harsh I may take my bigger heli not mentioning any names out to a field. But I am trying to walk before I can run. I cant nose in yet I believe it was just to hard for me with a rate gyro on BCPP 3 & 1 hoping gy240 holding tail will help give me a second to remember my controls are backwards.

ROXoRIZoR,thats like 25 hrs on a tail motor,thats gotta be some kind of record
Log book says 143 flights, total 16.68 hrs.

Admittedly... my tail usage is quite lite, as i re-learned everything including all orientation hovering. Not a whole lot of tail usage...

Still chugging along...

P.S. I don't mind the off topic, as it is good to see some postings :-)

The thread title kinda leaves room for just about any discussion in this forum.. hehe

Yep... same little tail motor that came with it.

The battery i used for the majority of flights was the stock battery... now i use DN Power 850mah's, as my stockers are losing capacity now.

I bugged ginocp, quite a few times, about his testing with the pro. I was going to order up the freestyle conversion, to convert to belt tail... but the tail motor hasn't given out yet... so im trying to not fix something that isnt' broke yet hehe

Just my two cents...

I've had very good luck with the GWS DD tail. 53 flights and no problems. I don’t mind getting 50 flights per motor.
It’s a little disappointing that so many bash the little CP Pro. I too have invested way over $1000 in the whole hobby like tools, parts, spare CPPros. Dx7, box of new parts ready to go. Frequently I am impressed how good the little chopper is. Upgraded of course. (See Signature. ) I feel the stock form of the cp or pro really isn’t worth much. With the typical upgrades we know what they are….) its capabilities are far in excess of what I can handle. Working on inverted now! I”ll be flying this Pro until next year at least. Then maybe a 450 model.

I too, like the 300 class helis. I can fly them at the park and nobody complains…

I was sad to see the title “this area is dead”. That’s kind of depressing to me. I love logging on and reading and writing about the Blades and what you guys are up to. The whole process is a lot of fun. Upgrading one part at a time to evaluate the results… I recently flew my old CP with 9.6 volts Nmh batteries, 10 tooth, No bell mixer and Flybar weights! OMG! How far I have come. My Pro is dramatically better than stock.

I have no doubts that the 450 sizes are better to fly. That’s why I want one. That is, once I crash my CPP a little more attempting tricks…

I just don’t know why the CP & Pro get such a bad wrap!
Thanks to all of you for all the good info on these upgrades..

The blade is still sweet and in a crash I could literaly get it flying in about 20 mins with maybe a blown fuse to solder back in. I flew the heck out of mine and never spent that much loot on it once I got a few minor stock bugs out of it. I could never get it to fly well with brushless motors in it. I think that a bunch of people on here have out tricked their blades and can now outfly them. I love to read up still because if I didn't I would not have learned so much from everyone. As soon as someone finds something new on the blade you will see all sorts of stuff on here again. I like the belt drive tail stuff that Gino has. That is sweet and would love to see more of it. I think lots of people where looking for a reliable cheap air frame to put all their expensive gyros and brushless motors in that didn't work out on their Blades. One thing that is strange is I never see anything on that Micro heli belt drive that was out. I think it was way too much loot and people didn't want to take a chance on it.

I installed a HDX300 outrunner, CC10 ESC, TP 1320's, and all the fixins...

I flew it once... and yanked all that crap out.

Now i have an almost stock CPP, and love every min of it. All the extra's... such as outrunners... didn't help me out. Infact, it hurt my learning curve... as i quit flying for a short time after out of frustrations.

Just turns out.. i needed to get a nice set of calipers, and go over the whole thing again. Flies like a champ now. :-)

The HDX300 kit was a bit over priced. Almost the cost of a new CPP, so alot of folks didn't see the cost advantage of it... versus what benefits you got.

I'm not sure if Gino experimented with it... but as i recall he tested ALL the CPP belt drive goodies. Gino apparently stuck with the Freestyle belt mod. Thats the one i will be migrating too when my excess inventory of motors disappears.

Yes, that belt drive he had looks sweet and the cool thing is it's on a very light heli. It looks cool and I was going to go that way but realized my blade frame was getting worn out. I went with an HBK2 for now and may spend some time thinking of a way to make it lighter. It would be cool with some carbon rod skids or something to make it very light... but I do like the fact that there is room to move electronics around in the lower frame.
