Hi, thinking about buying the hbfp v2 is there any chance with a change of motor or pinion
it could be flown on 7.4v lipo`s, the reason for this is that I have plenty of 7.4 lipo`s and it would save starting another lipo collection orange78 thanks Dave

I read of a guy on RCGroups tested it and said it was a no go on 7.4v, and he knows his HBFP's and mods orange71

That's one reason why I think I'm gonna stick with my HBFP V1 for now. I've got six 7.4v batts that I hate to waste.

Hey, Nutz. The other day you showed a really nice looking fuse for the HBFP. It was really a barebones with a Jet Ranger fuse, but now I can't find your post.

You said it was compatable with all of my HBFP V1 parts. Is that right?

Unfortunately it can't. I tried it yesterday and it could only hover about a foot off the ground.

I have (4) 7.4v lipos.........anyone interested? Wink

Why couldn,t you put a 7.4 motor off an older honeybee, if you have been flying them before Iam sure you would have spar motor,s , the servo,s look the same, don,t know if the new receiver would have a voltage limiter like a capacitor or a triad array like on PLC,s for robotics, don,t realy know just a idea!

Are the motors different in V2 from V1?

It probably comes down to weight being the reason why 7.4v lipo just can't provide enough power.

not sure but I would think the only difference in motors would be the rotor winding less for more voltage more for less voltage, plus it looks like they used the same blades, older one,s would lift their own weight plus tranning gear, I don,t know how much heavier the new bee is, just a thought it would not take long to find out just my opinion!

Dont think its the weight, I know of a Bee that weights 318grams and flys ok giving 8/9 mins per pack I wonder if the motors are a different voltage or is esky overdriving the old motors with 11.1volts to get the performance, I really fancy a v2 but dont want to start another lipo collection.

Heck I think the honey 7.4 is what around 8.00 dollars or so, if you would advance the motor timing and put I decent set of blades on it with a tail motor you would still probly be less expensive than a 11.1 battery, I guess it just matters if you want to mess around with it, just my opinion!

Hi Marc, do you think the Extreme 380x might do the trick without blowing the 4in1 up.
