Well if you already have a blade CP you can just get the conversion blade for like 108....Then just use your own head and elctronics, keeps price under 300$.


If you want da bling bling, then its more spendy...I think I got about 700 or so, with tools, radio and all electronics. Sure is a nice heli though, once I get this tail pulley thing figured out she should fly like a absolutle DREAM!.


I'm waiting on carbon blades from HeliDirect they have a new set coming out, I will let you know how they fly once I get my bird in the air.

Solaris, no need to be scared, just hit up a local hobby shop, just need a dremel, thats only 30$...Just need to make small indents on the main shaft where the grub screws for the tail pulley attachs...This just ensures it doesn't slip at all..


This heli is FAR SUPERIOR to a blade CP...When holding my friends blade cp, its like night and day, this one is rock solid built, and extreme precision.


EVERY heli has lil kinks to work out man, no biggy.

It is funny though, everytime I take it to hobby shop for trex stuff, guys standing around are like what is that, and the hobby guys like its a uhhhh Heli, i'm like its a Blade CP Duh, lol, there like thats not a blade CP, i'm like sure is, its a 300 size heli so is the blade LOLOL.


Its funny when other guys have their blade CP brushless setups, with the flimsy metal landing gear, and dual tail motors, it doesn't even compare to this.

You can do away with the head. I personally prefer the plastic one. It is less heavy and parts are readily available in case of a crash. Sure enough, the cnc head makes this bird look awesome but, in my humble opinion, it does not improve the flying characteristics of this heli. But on the other hand, you love bling, like I do, go for it. It is a pretty good investment.

Hey JJ, I looked at some hornet blades the other day, if i'm not mistaken my tail will smack the main blades if I install those cause they are long.


Also JJ, looking at your tail blades your tail is spinning CLOCKwise...I thought it was suppose to spin Counter clockwise?


I saw some Nightranger Carbon blades and they were shorter and would make clearance.


I guess I can wait for Steve to let me know when the new carbons come in.

Belt drive specs
What a piece of work, me 'at's off to ya!
I'm wondering if there is a resource that can give me the specs for the belt driven tail. You know, parts list, instructions and illustrations. I am teaching myself to fly the CP Pro but am currently grounded due to P.I.U.D. (Pilot Induced Unintentional Descent) I was toying with rebuilding my Pro as fully Bling Bling as possible, but I think it might be easier just to build up an enhanced airframe from the ground up, so to speak. Again, love your work & any help you can give steering me to where to find detailed instructions would be great, thanks.
If it's got wings, I can fly it.

Belt Drive Instructions
Sorry if I wasn't clear, but please understand that I am so new to helis that I don't even know the right questions to ask. I really like the idea of a belt drive with a variable pitch tail rotor for my Pro, but I don't have a clue where to start. I haven't seen a parts list, clear pix that show, in detail all the mods required, or any info on how to set it up. Right now my Pro is stock, and as I mentioned, I think I'll just build up the bling airframe piecemeal. I'm on kinda a tight budget so as I continue to teach myself to fly the thing (which means feeding it a steady diet of main rotor blades) I'll start buying the second airframe a piece at a time. With any luck at all, by the time I get it all together I may be able to fly the frappin' thing. I'm an alright plank flyer, but these helies are different! BTW what is your opinion on stock servos and TX? Again, nice job on yours, sorta got me inspired.

Hey TREX4life,

the 255's blades for the hornet clear the tail rotor perfectly. At fisrt glance, they seem to collide but they don't. yeah, the tail should turn counter clock wise. I just put the tail blades the wrong way.

Stock servos should be aok.


Mine flys, barely but I got it hovered a few feet in the air, ALWAYS scary the first time, I'd say at 80% throttle I am putting out 300 or so more RPMS on the rotor head, scary fast.


Just gotta tune her out and locktite all d boltz

If you have the stoke Blade CP Tx and Rx because there is no more tail motor for the upgrade where do you plug the servo in for the tail?

I don't know, this heli was a complete kit, as for doing a blade CP conversion to belt, you'd have to talk with heli direct about that one.

none, however I am selling this heli cause I am funding a Extra 300 electric plane. So if you want a good deal let me know, its also on ebay, but I reserve the right to end the auction if someone should come to me with a offer.


New Project, just finished building:

Tail slipping
Yea, I have tail slippage also. Upon inspection, I noticed that one of the grub screws holding the tail pulley had snapped? I did not think that I put that much torque on the pulley when I tighten it. And it looked OK prior to flight. Problem I see is that the belt has to be fairly tight to prevent it from slipping. The grub screw needs to be stronger, or the whole thing needs to be redesigned.

This heli is not for beginners. Set up using the stock BCP head is difficult. And there are no instructions other than the video. The web site has a link, but it does not work.

Part numbers? Are there part numbers?

Your right about the belt needing to be tight, if not the tall will drift or will not hold but when you get all the bugs worked out it a nice little helli.I got mine working.

Tail Drift
I just finished with my HDX and 2 things had to be done in order for my tail to hold. Make sure you use the 8 tooth tail gear that they sent with the kit, and use larger tail blades.
I never knew it could be so much fun instead of the frustration....
