Below some small modification & upgrades made to my Honey Bee Fixed Pitch V2 helicopter. Click the thumbnails for more info.
Shortend the canopy rod
Extra canopy cut
DD tail drive
HBFP V2 LiPio tray
Discontinued mods – SS SuperPaddle’s & SS CF FB – I did not like them at all.
– Xtreme Fibre reinforced blades – XP blades give more stability.
– Double heat sink on stock tail motor – Got DD tail set-up.
Would like to make a DD tail drive on my Honey Bee FP version2. Am I correct that you used a CP3 motor and prop but kept the stock tail fin? What did you mean by modded the old shaft holder away? Could you give more info? Thanks
I was on holiday so good not answer much sooner then this.
You are absolutely right, I use the CP3 motor and prop.
The old prop was sitting in a kind of tube in the tailfin. Including some bearings. That part I dremmeled away.
First I took the bearings out and I removed the extra plastic which is no longer in use as the new prop fits straight to the new motor.
I also took away the small point at the bottom of the tailfin as that like to stick in the grass (in my case).
