Thanks for visiting my website and for leaving a message. I really appreciate that.
I have my own kind of learning strategy which works great for me and keeps the cost down. I will add this strategy on my website soon. It is a good way of learning all there is in life without damaging our surroundings and it is also a guarantee to improve on a steady base.
Thanks you for visiting my website and for leaving a message 🙂
Where to get cheap spares for the Honey Bee V2, I do not know. I am sure that ebay can bring some joy. For my HBFP V2 I always get my spares at http://www.hobbymaniac.com. There stock is real up to date, Sam has the tendency to ship direct after paying, so with paypal he ships the same day. Even more important HobbyManiac reacts on emails and has great service.
Miracle market. They sent discount coupons all the time and there is an extra 10% discount code for your orders to. The 10% is for members of http://myrcguide.com. Great and friendly forum! See you maybe there.
Thanks for your answer.
It was for me a big journey to find good and cheap shops for my HBFP v2.
Thank you very much I keep visiting your website cause it so awesome.
BTW do you have meeting for flying with HBFP?
I coult like to join.
I am living in Almere buiten. Last week i fight outside but i crash so hard.
But HBFP is easy to fix. Order so much stuff from deal extreme. SO cheap and free shipping. 🙂
Hey Erik can i join i want to learn to fly 🙂
I have a talent for bending flybars and less for bending them back, I always keep some nasty vibe in the Bee. Tonight indoor flying in our local skate hall.
If you think you can make a nice header, feel free to do so. And if it is nice enough will use it too 😀
Been a while since we had contact, I’m still struggling the Honeybee FP v2. I have 2 as you know but also crashed 2 the same day. Was a nice day, all seemed perfect but since hovering in my backyard wasn’t a challenge anymore even with wind, I wanted to get into the open with the bees. Since the space I had at home wasn’t more then about 2 to 3 metres on each side this was overwhelming to me. At first all went well but then you take the space and then it happens….. on both heli’s I crashed the tailmotor. One was even it’s first real flight. So I had to order new ones. It took me a long time to get the original since everywhere they were out of stock. I ordered a DD motor now too together with 3 original motors and 2 main motors so it should help me a while I hope. I hope to have them tomorrow. Gonne build one be with the DD, the other I keep original. Can’t wait to get airborne again. Will start with hovering again..hahaha
Well I hope you are doing fine Eric.
Take care and hope to hear from you.
Btw thanx for the tip on the boom. Ordered the kite pole and got 3 out of them. One looks nice with the text on it like yours 😉
My first time in the open with the Bee was a simular story. I was running behind my Bee as she kept flying away from me 🙂 The Bee ended up the three and had my first real damage too.
I think many flyers can share same stories 😀
Good to see you try out the DD too, its very powerfull. My advise wait a while until you fly around comfortably in 8’s before you pimp to DD. The orginal tail setup is great for learning, and as you have 2 you can do both at the same time. Gues thats even nicer, so you can try both at the same time.
Enjoy the repairs and have nice flights and don’t let the Bee runaway 😀
Great to hear from you and the reactions and tips you give. I got the motors today. I will follow your advice and get comfy with the Bee’s first, once I am I’m gonne try the DD. I thought it would be easier to control because it reacts faster to ciclic, so also when the bee gets in trouble. Guess I’m wrong. Thanx for advicing me and prob save me from crashing and damaging the motor. I better mount 2 original motors on the bee’s because I know myself, if I install it I’m sure I’m gonne try it…hehe (good to know myself he?)
I think any new HoneyBee flyer should see your site and learn from the tips you give…. 😉
The DD setup will keep the tail more in place and can make it easier for you. It can also push your tail around very fast as it is really powerful in relation to the stock version.
For your skills it is better the work with the stock setup. Also making turns will be easier this way. When you can fly around you just upgrade to DD and will have a lot of fun.
I am not sure what I liked better in the end. The DD tail gives extra fun for sure and the sound of the DD prop is so nice when it spinns.
Just progress and get better skills 😀 You benefit from it in the end.
