RC711 has the HBFP V2 in stock finally, just need to wait till some US retailers get it so we don't have to pay such high shipping.

Yup, I saw it since yesterday, and I thought all of you watched it there before.

Just hope you dont get them in U.S. retails until the seasonal of November, it may raise the price.

In Mexico we dont have places which are dedicated to sell RC, less helicopters... and the few who do it increases the price at double or sometimes the triple atomic

Thats why I get my stuff from there, the costume value decrease more than if I get them from U.S. retailers... I dunno but for some reason, the costumes here increases the taxes at double when we buy from U.S. orange75

Nice bird, gotta show it to a friend here to see if he is interested... Wish I could get it, but I'm stuck in the Belt, later the fuselage or the EXI, later the Esmart if appears... too bad I dont have time and money to get them all.

Lets relax and enjoy a ciggy smokingele

that ad is all messed up, first they're calling it a HBCP 2 and showing a pic of a HBFP. Also the whole Mark 3 thing is a gimmick the retailers created to help sell the HBFP.

ESky olnly made 2 versions of the HBFP, the original and the new V2, anything else you see is someone making up names.

The ad also say yellow and shows a red HBFP, it also say 2.4ghx and shows a FM version.

man that company is dumb :hahaha:

Oh nice, well let's hope nothing out of the ordinary happens. The Lama v4 is fun but it doesn't really teach much besides orientation.

You are wrong Nutsy Wink Originally it's third honey bee fp made by esky. Here is a review of the REAL honey bee V1. It is why many seller's are calling current v1 honey bee fp2 bouncy And the new V2 is fp3

You tread dangerous grounds questioning him.
On a side note, seeing that it's in the UK, hopefully that means the US is soon to follow.
Still brutal pricing though. $136 from RC711 or $180+ from Heliguy.

ok, you got me one there being an earlier version of the HBFP, but find anywhere on ESky's website that they refer to the HBFP as a FP 1, FP 2, and FP 3.

Those are names given to the heli by the companies selling the heli, not ESky.

Besides the first and second HBFP's you are talking about aren't really that different. The frame is slightly different in that the skids originally stuck right into the frame rather then having seperate mounting tabs, the rotor head was more like the Walkera head and it had a different canopy. Other then that they are the same but the V2 is a whole redesign of the original HBFP concept.

I don't like or agree with companies labeling the HBFP with these funny names as it is confusing to beginners. There is the original HBFP and the V2.

Hey all,
I got my HPFP V2 today and boy did it need a lot of adjusting!! I can't seem to get the roll right as I have it trimmed all the way to the right. Actually, I think my Belt CP V2 is easier to fly!!

Anyway, what parts have changed from the earlier version? Where can I be sure I am getting the V2 parts.

Thanks,
Gary

except for the main shaft you won't have to worry about breaking any of the new upgrades, they're really strong, but the whole head is the same as the original HBFP except the flybar and paddles, they're from the Belt CP

out of curiosity, how much was it to ship from there and how long did it take to get it?

How long does it usually take new helis in the States to makes there way to multiple retailers (not just xheli)?

It cost $40 to ship it 2 day express mail. I ordered it Sunday night and it was here on Wednesday. I have ordered a lot of stuff from them and it gets here very quickly.

Thanks. I'm guessing there is no real tech support from a seller in Hong Kong, so you're on your own in terms of getting help from the forums right?
