The hard part of your challenge is finding a source of new parts if some of what you have is broken. The frames and booms are non-existent at most of the places that carry spares. Motors are a bit easier and so are some of the mechanical components but you might be a bit challenged. There is a manual available if you search for the Honey Bee CT. The CT uses mechanical phasing and a basic three axis controller. You set the blade over the boom (they have it over the nose but the boom is a better reference) and adjust the height of the swash, zero pitch, and servo arms level with the ground once you have set the phase angle at 90 degrees. If any of those head components are bent, you might be completely out of luck except to place ads on the forums asking for old CT's and pray. There is always the possibility of using more modern electronics but that will mean a lot of trial and error (mostly error until it is right) before a solution can be worked out. I know difficult projects can be done, I have done a few of them, myself, so don't get discouraged. Many would say, "Just trash it:", but there is experience to be gained that is not part of the usual business of model helicopter building and flying. My case in point was making a Blade CP Pro 2 into a flybarless, brushed motored helicopter but while that was the original goal, it turned out that a brushless, flybarless CP Pro 2 was to be the end goal. Have fun and a Merry Christmas.

I would urge you not to mess with this as a newcomer. If you are an old hand I would urge you to be more specific what type of help you need. That's why you never received a reply until almost 2 full months later.
