Hi,

I was just wonderign what the difference between these are. I'm looking at them on the helihobby website but they don't really describe them in detail. It seems the big differences are the larger rotor and tail boom and an improved chassis.

thanks,
Keith

http://mscomposit-usa.com/ or click on the hornet on the top of the page in this forum. I've been wanting a hornet for at least a year and I think I'm gonna get a Hornet 2.

From http://mscomposit-usa.com/
MS Hornet CP-X
A micro 3D machine.

> Highly aerobatic helicopter.
> Symmetrical carbon main rotor blades.
> Dual bearing main rotor blade grips.
> Lightweight, 3D flybar paddles.
> Dual carbon tail boom support struts.
> CCPM 120° precision swashplate.
> Carbon 3D style tail fins.
> Factory assembled, steel tail output shaft & hub.
> High quality components & hardware.

MS Hornet II
Improving the breed.

> Based on the Hornet CP.
> Longer symmetrical main rotor blades.
> Longer carbon tail boom.
> CCPM 120° precision swashplate.
> New battery support & component deck.
> New pre-built landing gear assembly.
> New sleek looking lightweight canopy.
> New 2nd ball bearing on tail drive shaft.
> New dual tail boom support struts.
> New white plastic horizontal & vertical fin.
> New larger diameter tail pushrod.
> New pre-installed motor capacitors.
> High quality components & hardware.

The hornet2 also has a frame that has a "pinch" bolt to hold the tail boom on instead of a grub screw that can mess up the carbon boom.

thanks for the info and links. Hmm now which to get. I plan on getting a scale body to put on it eventually so i probalby won't end up getting the hornet II because the overall length without blades is 80mm longer.

I see that the cp-x has an upgraded tail rotor assembly. Is this just the gears, shaft and hub? or does it also have the aluminum gear box?

One last question for now...is there an option part to use a clamp system to attach the boom like the hornet II or would i have to do a custom mod myself?

Thanks,
Keith

do you think the hornet 2 can do 3d as hard as anything else out there?

Well I ordered mine on the assumption that if its not manuverable enough for me that I could just get stock length boom, blades and the 3D paddles, then it should be more or less a CP-X....except for having a "better" frame, might want some stock type landing gear too but I'll see what it can do soon
