Hi helipilot32:

You might recognise this helicopter. Hovers in the bedroom perfectly but I have not got it into a larger area yet. Maybe after Christmas. It setup very nicely. Thank you.

Don

Hi all:

Here is another stab at making a CP Pro 2 into a flybarless helicopter, and brushless to boot. I built this chassis brand new, added servos, main gear, and canopy from the original Pro 2, then added the motors, ESC, AR636, and head assembly from the 230S to the chassis and have one of the most stable flying CP's I have ever flown to date. Loved the learning curve for the AR636 and now this is going to be flown as often as some of my large scale and F3C helicopters. It's just a great knockabout heli design. Take care.

OMG
I just looked back and saw my first post on this subject was 3-12-2009! I can honestly say, that era of experimenting with the CP was the most fun I ever had with the heli hobby - and I've been doing it my whole long life. Seems like a lot more than 9 years.

Once HH came out with the 180 CFX that ended all my experimenting around. There was never gonna be anything to gain from that day forward. . . . .

Very Nice Work Don! Funny I used the AR636 to bring new life to an old helicopter too. Recently I picked up a Nikko Skywatcher at Flea Market in Madrid. This was my very first RC helicopter back in 2004. I hacked it into 4 channel (something I had done before in 2005) but this time I used the AR636H to give it that drone auto-level feature. To make it into an awesome vintage chopper, I also replaced its brushed motor with an RZ-350. Since you have the Blade CP,you will remember the famous RAZOR motors which became the NeuMotors series which were one of the best inrunners besides MEDUSA back in the day.
For the kicks of it, I also made a Vlog of the build and the maiden flight right after(video below)
When time permits, I'm gonna revisit my full metal Chasis blade CP Pro like you did

Thanks. That project of yours is pretty cool. I had never seen one of those before so it was a lesson in what was around back then. I was only aware of Neu motors and had never heard of the Razor branded motors. I did have trouble with the tail wagging and then ending up nowhere near where the tail started out. I shortened the tail by 2" (50.8mm) which then settled the tail right down. It could be that the proportional settings were set for the length of the tail boom of the 230S and since that is not adjustable, the tail had too much thrust. No matter what I did with the tail gain, nothing would settle it down. Now it runs perfect. Hope that conversion holds up for a long time. You might be able to use the head from the 200S if your heli takes a dirt nap. Have fun.

Thanks for the heads up on the tail wag issue. Hobbyking has a 5300kv brushless motor which is pretty cheap for a drop in replacement on the cp Pro. I'm thinking of going full separates for the tail- a separate tiny dsm2 receiver from Banggood, commanding a futaba gy401 headlock gyro which controls a hobbyking 6amp pulse ESC that drives that Hobbyking 5300kv. This would bypass the AR636H entirely for rudder but the GY401 had been widely used as a ticket for a solid tail, including Bert Kammerer. I was amazed to see how his CP's tail barely moved during a full throttle punch in an online video someone posted 3years ago. He had an expensive Medusa 5300kv though.
