I've heard different things about when they will actually be for sale but hopefully soon, I need my own, lol

Haven't heard much about the 900 though, it got delayed last I knew.

what does anyone think of the new HBCP coming out?i`ve yet to try the delights of a cp heli orange80
i`m torn between another new version of the hbfp or to go for a HBCP orange78
i`m not really interested in 3D flight so is it gonna make such a difference going for the cp version orange1
or maybe the king 3 or belt?

In my opinion, and I think others on the forum would agree, go ahead and get an E-Smart 600. You will love it and you will learn a lot from the build process. Also it will be easier to fly than the Belt CP, King, HBFP or HBCP.

GO for it.

Nice looking unit! Looks like things are mounted a little more appropriately and it's sturdy in all the right places.

Are all the rotor head parts/links/flybar/swashplate/blades/etc. the same as the previous version?

its the same size just a little heavier. The head is the same just the main shaft is a bit different.

As far as the HBCP3, imo a CP with a tail motor is such a bad idea, I had the Eagle 50 (very similar to the HBCP2/3) and it sucked, ALOT. I'd never suggest anyone get that sytle heli, get a HBFP, learn the basics of single rotor flight then get a bigger CP with a belt driven tail, the bigger it is the more stable it will be.

hey Donnie D
thanks for the advice.how much do you think an E-Smart 600 would cost to assemble,including everything to make it RTF?
i`m talking basic cost here,the minimum to make it an acceptable heli!
i can DEF see what you mean about it being easier to fly than the smaller ones but that to me doesn`t mean it`s the best option to go for.
the reason i say this is because we all know that once we find something easy to do it gets boring(or maybe that`s just me orange49 )
the biggest buzz is getting your heli flying something new,whatever the heli(says me with only my hbfp headbeat )
so what i guess i`m trying to say is that it`s not just the heli to me but the challenge it brings

Depends really on how much you can find a kit for. But expect to pay approx $200 for an ESC, BEC,GYRO and servos. Add this to the price of your kit, My kit was approx $325 (full metal) and included a motor and blades. I know you can do much better than that if you shop around, especially on Ebay. And if you need a radio, I bought a DX6i for $199 and it comes with a receiver. You an probably get a batt for say $70 on up. I have about $800 in mine, but I needed everything, including a radio. But the DX6i can handle 6 models, so I shouldnt need another radio.

Take a look at the Sticky info on the E-S 600 here on the forum, and you will see what Nutz used for his. I used about the same stuff he did except I used a different ESC ad BEC. Read thru my thread under 6 ch helis titled "ES 600 build". Might help.

Also Fatdaddy had an all metal he built for sale. Pretty good price on it.

I know it sounds like a lot of money, but I love mine and I just bought the components as I had the money. Took a bit of extra time, but I got it built, and I love it. It's my baby.

Good luck.

hey DD,thanks for the info
$800 is about £480,so for that money i can see that the E-S 600 would be a great heli.
trouble is that money is real tight at the moment(i`m managing to save £10 per week for my next heli)
i could get this heli http://www.heliguy.com/Electric-RC-Helicopters/Belt-CP/Belt-CP-V2/ at a 1/3 of the price which also means i get it a lot quicker
i like the look of the new hbfp/cp that is coming out too,i don`t know what i`ll do until i have the money in my hand orange44
my hbfp is not working now though,PLEASE have a look in the 4ch thread to see if you can help me orange4
