ESky Honey Bee CT – 3 Blade flybarless RC Helicopter

The Honey Bee CT is the first flybarless, three blade RC helicopter manufactured by ESKY. This all new helicopter has a realistic appearance, flybarless structure, and comes with the special 3 blade structure with aluminium rotor head. Thanks to the CCPM collective pitch setup it’s capable of 3D aerobatic flight. All the main blades are able to change their pitch to increase lift and perform swift changes of movement. The motor driven tail blades provides higher sensitivity and rapid response.

Specifications

  • Length:525mm
  • Width:110mm
  • Height:185mm
  • Weight:440g(including battery)

  • Li-po Balance Charger
  • 11.1V 1000mAh Li-polymer Battery

The tri-blade structure and solid aluminium CCPM rotor head allows you to fly the heli inverted and perform many other special tricks. The flybarless structure makes the rotor head mechanism simpler and easier to repair and maintain. The Honey Bee CT shares the same frame and electronics with the Honey Bee CPX. The front of the fuselage can be detached without using tools, making it easier to change the battery, and make repairs. At the centre of the helicopter is a simple 3 in 1 controller that does all the jobs of the gyro, receiver and mixer.

The Honey Bee CT – Remote Control Helicopter is supplied with all you need, including batteries for the radio transmitter and field charger. This radio controlled helicopter comes with the newly design 2.4GHz frequency RC system with advanced Spread Spectrum Technology (SST) and digital FSK (frequency shift key) coding technology.

We’re improving the phone system we have for support and at the moment we’re on temporary numbers which are published on the top of our web site. Our new phone system will allow you to queue to speak to one of our support specialists, at busy times to save you having to keep trying.

The transmitter and receiver have been upgraded to 2.4Ghz technology, which is more reliable and allows many models to be used at the same time without having to change crystalsas in MHz tx systems. Not only is it 2.4GHz but this transmitter has an LCD display, it is Walkera’s latest model and has many other useful features including the ability for the length or tension of the control sticks to be adjusted.It offers three helicopter flight modes and each flight mode is capable of various settings and parameter adjustments; it has frequency-hopping spread spectrum 2.4G technology and features automatic code pairing and ID assignment.

Walkera HM4# Dragonfly 4ch tail rotor rc helicopter

First from Walkera is the HM4# otherwise known as the Dragonfly, is the easy to control, easy to repair and fun to fly 4 channel helicopter from Walkera. The 4# was developed for one reason – “To make a durable helicopter for the first time flyer and help them to enjoy this hobby”, and Walkera really have succeeded.

The rotor head is equipped with upgraded metal parts, which makes it very tough, and the frame structure is so simple that breakages are rare, although not impossible! For the first time flyer, if you stock up on spare blades and extra flybars then you’re ready to start this hobby! If you have experience in controlling co-axial helicopters, this helicopter is the ideal choice to bring you into the world of 4 channel tail rotor, true rc helicopters.
Available from our web site for only £79.99 or if you preorder before stock arrives on the 6th August 2010 you can save an extra £10!

It comes in a Ready-To-Fly package with all things you need to get started, other than 8 AA batteries for the transmitter. It is very stable and easy to fly, even a complete novice will have this chopper flying around quite happily with in an hour or so. This is the top model with the upgraded metal rotor head and 2.4GHz LCD transmitter, making it an excellent package and great value for money.

The Co-Comanche is a great choice for a beginner, and someone who is thinking of moving on to larger tail-rotor helicopters, as training with these gives you a good grounding in the hand to eye coordination and spacial awareness required to fly all helicopters, but without the complex controls of the single rotor and 6 channel choppers.

So, how about flying this beast? Well, thanks to it’s coaxial configuration, even a complete novice will be able to get this bird off the ground and become a confident operator in an afternoon.

Acme RC Trucks; CopterX and Esky Helicopters; and Henglong Tanks Arriving Soon!

E-sky Honey Bee 2
E-sky Honey Bee 2

We’ve got a lot of new stock arriving over the next three weeks, and are replenishing supplies of some out of stock models.
First in are the E-sky helicopter range, these are extremely popular and sell out very quickly so if you want a Honey Bee or other E-sky model, then be sure to order as soon as possible as these will sell out! Later in the month the CopterX helis will be back in stock too, and these are built to an amazing standard using aluminium, plastic and on the top of the range models some components are carbon fibre offering unrivalled strength and lightness, at incredible value for money!
Our new CopterX 450 Pro Torque Tube is available in RTF format and offers an alternative to our belt driven helicopters. A torque tube does have a few distinct advantages over a belt driven tail system: Once installed, no further adjustments will ever be required; More precise transfer of torque to the tail rotor. There is no give in a torque tube. A torque tube can actually reduce the tail damage during a minor crash since the torque tube actually increases the rigidity of the tail boom slightly. Some people prefer torque tubes, others prefer belt drive, it’s all down to personal preference which is why we’ve decided to give you the choice!

We’re also expecting a large shipment of our ever popular Acme rc cars at the end of June, along with all the favourites we are adding two new models to our range: the Mighty truggy and the Trooper Truck.

Acme Mighty Truggy
Acme Mighty Truggy

The Mighty
The ACME Mighty is a fully built, fully featured, top of the range 1/8 scale off-road truggy, and comes with many feature enhancements to make this great looking car not only look the part but ‘be’ the part! This is the Pro version and it is fitted with high quality components, is 4WD and equipped with a powerful .25 nitro engine!
The Mighty is built using advanced components and innovative engineering to get the best performance out of your package. It has a newly developed C-hub steering system, where the king pin axis extends to the wheel centre (see picture right) this feature improves steering performance. It has a specially designed suspension system, with twin adjustable rear suspension modes which allows for a flexible driving mode and a smooth driving mode. Available from our web site for just £189.00 – a £20 pre-order saving – as soon as these arrive they will be priced at their usual £209.00, so pre order and save now!

Trooper Truck
Trooper Truck

The Trooper
Brushless motor systems are a new technology that until recently have only been available as upgrades for normal rc cars. This is because to have a brushless setup not only requires the brushless motor but also a brushless ESC, li-polymer battery and special li-polymer charger which are all very expensive and would cost hundreds of pounds. Then came some brushless 1:16 scale brushless models that due to there smaller size only needed a smaller brushless motor etc so could be priced at a realistic level.

Here we introduce the 1:10 scale brushless truck – the Trooper; this has a big brushless motor and 11.1V Li-Polymer battery so it will go unbelievably quickly. This is a big model and is as long as some of our 1/8th models and at £169.99 on preorder you save £20, so if you want to get your hands on one of these, click this link and reserve yours!

Last but by no means least we’ve got some more of our Heng Long tanks coming in. These tanks are built to a high level of detail and although they arrive pre-painted and with a range of decals, many people like to personalise them with their own paint schemes and these are ideal for people who want to do this. To find out more about our tanks please click here, there’s money to be saved by pre-ordering these models too!
