    Do you need so much upgrades? certainly not! I would say that the carbon frame, the tail gear case, the swashplate, the tail rudder mount are a must. Prices are going down with the new H2 clone (Dragonfly), moreover I aquire a lot of parts on ebay....

The HS-55 is the perfect choice for any micro application from indoor R/C and hand launch gliders, to ultra small electric Park and Yard flyers, Speed 400 and 1/2A powered aircraft.

    Less expensives rotor blades!

    Rotor blades are way to overpriced for that kind of heli, and cost as much as 30 size blades and sometimes more!!!! crazy I list here the less expensives, I encourage You to discuss this on forums or contact me if you find a better source.

  • >Can you give me some advice on how to get the stock pins out of the hornet II main shaft. There are two. One in the  >main gear and one in the head block.

    very depending... on the configuration of parts (with or without electronic and plastic) around...

    • Only metal part -> in hoven 80°C, let dilatation work for You...
    • A mix of plastics and metal without electronics-> in freezer -10°C during 2 hours , let dilatation work for You...
    • A full heli around :-) use a grip like this one:  or a  smaller model ->

      apply a pressure on only one side of the pins with grip, the other side must touche only the main shaft
