Honeybee project

Got a beat up Honeybee FP helicopter on trade and decided I should fixer up and get it flying. I know I posted it below this but evevn though I used the white landing skids I left everything else intact I just added my black landing skids to the HB.
Was in very rough shape blown motor, cracked Boom and broken rear tal protector.
Wires were vare in spots from not being managed and getting stripped from the gear the head was not getting any movement pretty stiff main blades were warped beyond repair.
So I have fixed and managed the wires repaired the boom and tail blade protector also replace the motor with a 370 and balanced and added some used working main blades I had on the side.
Also added some new servos but need to get some new rods for them.

It looks a little rough but beleive me when I say it was much worse I do not have the blades on the head because I was balancing them when these pics were taken.
Tried to take it up but the head was so stiff I had no control over it at all.

Traded my Co-ax heli for a very rough Honeybee FP helicopter

Since my 4in1 went bad I figured well may as well trade for the eky HBFP.
I am converting to Esky reciever anyhow:)
Here is a pic of the heli I got it is gutted a bit I added some parts to mine.

Have converted to Esky Reciever and TX in place of stock Walkera reciever and TX.
Am having some troubles getting stable flight at this time no fun:(
 

OMFG my Bathroom Dilemma

Had a pipe burst between my Bathroom and kitchen apparently it had a slow leak for years which caused that black mold yep the stuff they condemn homes for!
Anyhow had a guy look at the situation he leaned on the wall by the shower head and the wall crumbled to the tub.
I wish I took a pic of this mold it is nasty shit.
So some other guy has been working on it since Thrusday no water 1 bathroom 6 people and a busted pipe= SHITTY SITUATION
So I vowed I would not shower until it was completed figured I am a bum no job cupcake eating slob who would notice anyhow.
Here she is today Saturday the 19th should be done by tomorrow and ready for me to shower by Monday YAY!!!!

Guitar Hero III PC mod:)

Ok, I know that only consoles have Gh 1,2,3, 80’s, Aerosmith but at a cost….. $60 a game:( do the math not really worth it.
Although the PC did get GH3 released for it. And as most know all xbox 360 controllers are plug and play on Vista and XP Guitar works fine.
But due to the fact that PC’s are far superior when it comes to comparing with consoles. You can add all GH games on the PC using the GH3 graphics.
With a selector which comes in really handy
Here is the selector I did I only added GH,GHII,GH 80’s ,and of course III as well.
can also add custom music,Aerosmith and even Rock band songs if you please.
GH Blog
Here is a tutorial to do this I must warn it takes much time many hours ripping encoding then doing set lists.
But if you like this game it may be worth the hassle.
I personally skipped Aerosmith no interset maybe if it was GH Obituarys best I would have surely ripped that ASAP!
Anyhow have fun if you want to give it a whirl:) There are links for all the tools needed on the tutorial site link I added. 
Should also mention that this is a huge install after all mods mine with1,2,3 and 80’s is over 20 gigs.
 
Also Devil May Cry 4 PC is awesome this game is really fun!
The enemy count demolioshes the console versions at one time on screen there can be well over 60 enemys where the console versions maybe have 5.
With so much going on screen it gets insane. Also has DX10 mode so it looks better too.

YES I KNOW I AM ONE COOL MOTHER FUCKER
 

More Rc troubles!

I finally upgraded the motor as planned and after a few minutes of testing in the garage it went nuts and the new motor fried my 4in1 that is #2 so far doing this modfication with a purchase of a 3rd 4 in1 that equals $120 in just 4 in1’s!
So I email the contact at said company and get the reply we are aware that that motor was from a defective batch we are sorry for your inconvenience!
Yowser that is not what I wanted to hear!
Damage:
4 in1 blew this will be the 2nd one blown
Broken Flybar
Broken front skid.
 
Anyhow the 2nd email reply from the company said they are shipping me my new 4 in1’s and replacing other parts broken along with a few complimetary parts.
Which means I will have to convert my radio equipment that connects to my motors.
Luckily I have a spare TX since the stock one will not work with the new parts they are sending.
Anyhow they ship from Hong Kong should be here late next week and then I will be soldering and rebuilding yet again:(
 
When I first picked up the hobby I tought man what a cheap hobby to get into a decent heli for under $100!
What a fool I was after you start learning and getting better you start to realise what parts you need and before you know it your $1,000’s in the hole.
When I bought this helicopter it was a Walkera Dragonfly after all the mods I renamed it .
Name: Carbon Blade Dragonbee FP =(Fixed Pitch)
Uses Eflite Blade motors, Esky Honey Bee Radio equipment, Carbon Frame 300,Walkera Dragonfly Head and main Gear This is how I came up with that name:).
