If you were presented with these two Heli's, which one in your mind (for those who have perhaps worked with them) stands out as being better than the other.....again...they are not high end, just trying to compare.

E-Flite Blade CP

vs

Esky Honeybee CP2

I offered this advice to a guy at work (so far he has not followed it and has payed accordingly)

Look for a heli which you can buy parts for it locally. Mail order is great but it is always nice to be able to run to the local hobby shop to pick up that one part that will get you back in the air.

Thats part of the problem actually

I can pretty much see which is better but...

The Esky Honeybee CP2 has easier parts to come by even though they appear to be interchangeable from what i can see.

Look the honeybee package over carefully.
look at the difference in the way it is built and what accessories it comes with.
I have a Blade CP but must of the parts have been replaced wih honeybee parts.
I don't consider either one a good beginners heli.
If you have to choose between the two, the honeybee will probably fly easier and crash cheaper.
Keep in mind that with a little shopping you can put a Trex together for a little over $600.
