Thanks for posting Jeff.

Looked it over and it is nicely done. A bit on the heavy side and he didn't say much about the battery - power and such. Certainly you are limited to the UVify battery style. He also skipped the carbon fiber description and dimensions.

Price is competitive when you consider it include the goggles and transmitter - even if those two items are on the cheap side. I'm certain the racing snobs would turn their noses up, but the plug in solution of the arms is a good one. I've been trying to figure a way around that part as well.

Having been away from the hobby for quite some time, I decided to start again and did what I promised myself I would never do and bought another Honeybee 2. They are advertised as beginner helis and I thought I would begin again. I still find it as difficult to fly as my first one and I'm not exactly a total newbie. So I went even smaller and bought a little Blade 70S. OK, it can only be flown outdoors in very calm weather but what fun. I've really been enjoying flying again. I'll not ignore the Honeybee but in small doses until I feel the confidence returning. [/font

Hi, glad iím Remembered. Everything seems to have moved on apace since I was here last. Pleased that my banner has resurfaced, last time I was on the forum Photobucket had pulled the plug unless we paid for them. This was designed by Bear from Australia, whatever happened to him, I wonder? I guess lifemoves on and members find other interests and indeed, jobs in the world of helicopters and drones. I am now 81 and my reflexes are not what they were, so racing drones is a no-no for me. I did buy a Drone X recently and am having fun with that. Good to know the forum still exists. Iíll pop up from time to time. 👍

Hi Bazzer!!!

So happy to hear from you and that you are doing well and taking care of the things that matter most in life.

Things have gotten a lot slower here as well - me included. I've been spending more time leaning towards building "racing" quads. The boys here have gotten themselves into the DJI Spark - awesome flying machines. Some are getting into 3D printing. Mark is building huge working drones for the lumber industry and doing quite well at it.

Dave is still here but has been dealing with knee issues.

I am certain they will all pop in and say hi when they get around to visiting.

Hi Everyone, it's been a while since I've posted anything. In fact I had to re-register but it seems my old name still endures. The main reason was having to become a full time carer for my lovely wife. This began to occupy my time with housekeeping, cooking and other things domestic that I lost interest in the world of helicopters and drones. Now, though, I've got things together better and earlier in the year looked on my shelf, took down my old Dauphin Co-ax and gave it a spin. Interest re-ignited, I did something I swore I would never do - which was to buy another Honeybee Mk11 to learn to fly again! So far, so good, safe landings and no broken parts. Maybe they have made them stronger since my last experience with one. However, the best fun I have had was when I bought a little Blade 70S recently. This has really reignited my enthusiasm and I fly it both inside and out. Our weather here in the UK at the moment is very hot and still. ideal flying weather. I've also ordered a Drone X Pro from the USA, which is on its way. Sadly, my Blade 180CFX still refuses to respond, despite Rob's (are you still out there, Rob?) patient coaching and the smaller 130X needs new batteries which seem to have been discontinued.i still have my big (to me) Blade 450 3D and 350QX Quad, though both are probably prehistoric by today's standards.
I may blow a bit hot and cold on the forum as duty calls but I'm glad to be back. Cheers!
