What tail parts? I have a purple metal tailbox with slider, belt, and TREX plastic grips I can spare for cheap.

You could go with the HBK2 bare bones kit for $65

If it were me, I'd start trying to migrate to the V3 parts. The tail setup is much better.

I'm going to try to use the King parts to make my Axe CP into a belt driven tail. Tired of burning up motors.

I'm not familiar with the AXE CP. Is there a way to connect the boom? Or will you have to fabricate something? If you are going to make your own boom block, I'd highly recommend make it at 10mm. That way you can use all the King V3 tail stuff which is much better than the v2. Stuff.

The boom on the Helimax Axe CP is 8mm. That is why I was going to try to do something with the King tail parts. The boom on the CP clamps in between the two frame halves. Any suggestions on how to fit a 10mm. boom in an 8mm. hole?(aside from drilling the plastic frame out)

If the boom has enough meat it, you could drill it out. But more often than not, there's not enough extra material in the boom block to remove 2mm.

If you have to go with an 8mm boom, you can retrofit a V3 tail onto a v2 tail. Get the v2 tailbox, then use the v3 slider and slider arm. Its not a direct fit, but its not hard if you are a diy'r.

King V2 and V3 parts.

thanks for the links Gregor99. I'll see what I have to do to make this work. Do you think that the stock brushed motor will work for now?? It is a 380 brushed. Thinking about trying on of Towers Ammo inrunners later.

The HBK2 v2 comes with a brushed motor and almost nobody runs those. A switch to brushless is usally part of the build. Those that have tried burn them out within a flight or two.

It may be different with your AXE conversion. If the overall weight is low and headspeed is not very high, you might be able to get away with it.

it is running a stock 380 brushed motor as of now. I'll change it when I can afford to. I'm thinking I should just go with a CopterX 450 and forget the Axe conversion. Can buy them online for $60. all metal. Pretty nice from the looks of it.

Depends on what your goals are and how much patience you have. If are looking for a small, low maintinance heli, building your own Axe/HBK2 hybrid is probably not the way to go.

OuttaControl,

Tell as a little more about the role the Axe plays in your fleet (if you have more than one)? What is your skill level, and what things are important to you in a heli?

I have 2 Kyosho Calibers. One is a Caliber 30 and the other, which I just purchased, is a Caliber 4. Both are nitro helis. I've been flying on RealFlight 4 for about 2 years now and as far as the real thing goes I'm still working on the basics. Forward flight, piros etc. No 3D. Kinda like the precision hovering and stuff. I'm just wanting to have a small, fairly inexpensive electric that I can fly in my backyard. Have to take my nitro to the park and its kind of a bother when you just want to have a few minutes to practice orientation etc. Also have an Ikarus Eco 8 (incomplete due to parts availability) so I'm torn between a 450 size or maybe a 500. The Eco 8 is a 500 size. Thought of retrofitting the Eco with Hirobo parts but that will get pretty pricey. Been looking at some EXI 450s and 500. I got the Axe for the backyard flight but it has been a real P.O.S. so far. Look at it wrong and something breaks or burns up. Got 2 flights in a row where something didn't fall apart. I was thinking of retrofitting the Axe to increase its durability but I think I would probably be better off starting with something else. I'm just looking to have a good, reliable small electric for quick flights when the urge hits. Which is ALL THE TIME!!!

Then you need custom made HBK. You can then set it up to your liking and enjoy flight whenever you want in backyard.

Sorry, could not resist saying this, although that's what I use my 'Lil Be' for. You can even hover in house at winter time for orientation and presision hoversing.

That King must be 'custom'. How custom is it? Nice flying BTW.

how much do you have in your custom HBK's. Just a ballpark figure. That Lil Be looks really smooth and precise in the vid. Great flying by the way.
