I still have 3 Honey Bee King 2 helis, and am in need of various parts for them. I'd much rather keep all three in flying condition, rather than using one or two of them for parts.

About the only place I can find that has most all parts in stock for the hbk2 is Jaghobbies.com.

Does anyone have any experience (good or bad) with JAG hobbies?

JAG Hobbies prices are much better. Just don't know if they're a trusted site or not.

Most of my spares come from fleabay I find out the part numbers and most of the time the parts come from Hong Kong.

also, I did order the xtreme tail upgrade from buzzflyer and had that part in 5 days from the UK. cost a little more but at least I was able to get the part that is sold out pretty much everywhere in the US.

Thanks for the alternatives, Gents. Looks like my old HBK2's might have a little life left in them after all.

I made a few orders from Jag a couple of years ago and they were fine. Got my parts in a week or so on the east coast. I would have no hesitation ordering again.

BTW, I converted one of my King 2's to flybarless and if really flies nice. CX-3X1000 fbl system with CopterX Black Angel 450 flybarless head. I also get stuff on eBay - Globalmart (Hong Kong) mainly. But King 2 parts are getting harder to find.

Hey, now that's a great idea.

I tried to find ebay seller "Globalmart" and came up empty, though. Think I'll read up on the FBL system and FBL head.
