Miracle Mart has been so good with their service I've been thinking of asking them about bundling the metal upgrades for HBFP together for a lower price, like you see done with other helis. Someone has to be the first to do it. Might help if there was a group buy attached to it. Would anyone be interested?

There's no "package" yet, all parts must be purchased individually.

Go to your favorite heli store and look through the HBFP upgrades. I believe all the metal parts would be $100 or more if purchased seperately.

For the larger and more complex Trex 450 you can get the CP head and belt tail pieces in metal for $50.

For Belt CP you can get it all for $30.

Why it has to cost so much more for the small and simple HBFP is beyond me.

For those of us on this side of the pond, I imagine the conversion rate and shipping outweighs the gains, but I havent checked for sure.

I was going to buy from heliguy a few days ago, but too much was out of stock . . . Besides, we may get a better deal this way.

So that's three, including myself? Maybe we could get a couple more guys before I email Miracle Mart?

I don't know how good it'll be, I'll point Miracle Mart to this thread and see what they come back with. I'll post on RC Universe and possibly other forums if they're interested and maybe that'll make for a good deal. I'm kinda hoping since Miracle Mart is Chinese they'll be able to talk to the factory and get a bundle into regular production, so this isn't a one time deal. I think there is enough interest in the HBFP to justify production of a low cost bundle set, we just need to convey our interest to the manufacturer.

Let's see if one more guy wants to play.

I agree, I would want to see "CNC HBFP Bundle" on the site, just like belt cp, lama, etc.

Looks like there's not enough interest after all.

This might play better in one of the more travelled forums?

I'm going to move over to RCU anyway when this deal is done, so watch that thread.
