Micro heli for 3D indoor,difficult choice
Hi all,

I am looking for a micro heli that can do 3D stuff, to fly indoor in the winter.

Now i am looking at a Hummingbird 3D Pro or a Hornet 3DX,any idea's?

Or any tips where to buy?

I saw the Hummingbird combo at Grand-rc for a nice price.

Thanks,
Marcel

if it's down to those two models already i'd loiter in the hummingbird and hornet forums below...maybe ask a few questions there.

i have a 3dpro, and with the new beltdrive mod it is very nice (it's just about to hit the market...i've been prototype testing it for over 1 month now), and it's very responsive. but, i'm not up to 3d just yet. so, i'd hate to reommend it for something it's not capable.

one thing for sure, the 3dpro is a lot cheaper to maintain than the hornet. that's about all i have to say on the topic tho. good luck.
if it ain't broke, break it.

I had a Hornet CP a few years ago and i didnt like the tail and head.
And a new tailboom was pretty expensive.

I also think that a HB 3D Pro would be cheaper to repair.

What setup are you using?

Thanks,
Marcel

well, in the process of learning that the direct drive tail was hit and miss (works fine for some, crap for others---like me), i ended up blinging the whole thing out from tip to toe with all the aluminum goodies to try and sort her out.

after all is said and done, i think only the metal swash and main grips are mandatory for 3d (like i said, i'm not doing 3d yet...but, its very agile). the metal swash provides the crisp cyclic response, and the metal grips have an extra hole in them that allows for more +/- differential.

powerwise, the justgofly.com 400DF w/ 15t pinion on a 25amp ESC with the 13C TP1320 3s is a beast.

i run HS-55s on cyclic and tail w/ a GY401 with good tail authority and solid holding power.

one last note: balance and CG the stock woodies. some are really bad right out of the bag. i dont even mess with them any more. the like90s are great out of the bag, or CFs if you wanna spend the $$.
if it ain't broke, break it.
