Good luck with a "cheap CP helicopter"!!!

The CP3 guys should weigh in on this one, but I started with a King 2. Ended up pretty much rebuilding every piece of it. That is how they get expensive. First, you will not be too satisfied with the radio system and that leads to other things.

There is a big advantage in a belt drive tail and separate gyro and no tail motor. More reliable and tunable.

If you can swing a King 3, you will like that, otherwise, go for the CP3!

I cant say about the CP3 but as a Honey bee King 3 owner they are a cheap CP heli to start but like any heli, the sky is the limit when you Bling-it or up-grade radio gear, electronics ect..

If you are going to but a CP heli ... buy lots of spare parts.

Good luck :thumbup:
