my honey bee king is struggling to take off with its 370 motor, is this normal? and if it isnt then would you recommend getting the 3900KV upgrade version? (it weighs 490g, all instrument are set correctly although its tail can spin violently on take off)

Make sure the blade pitch is correct.If pitch is correct then I would get the 3900kv upgrade.The stock motor is junk.When I ordered my HBKII I also ordered a brushless motor and esc.

I have to agree with rsking45 about the brushless thing.
I went through a few brushed motors on my blade cp+ and that doesn't even have a belt. It has its own tail motor. The brushed motors were weak. I can't see one pushing a main and tail rotor as well as the drag of a belt and still give any power. I gotta suggest brushless. You will really enjoy it more. More RPM's equals more stable flight.

I fly mine with the pitch all the way up. this is the right knob.
the left knob turned all the way down.
Mine flew fine this way with the 370 motor until the motor began to give out and would get too hot.
I replaced it with the himax 400 brushless. Still use the same settings.
You may need to check the pitch adjustments of your rotors. You may not be getting enough positive pitch.

i have to put in a vote as well for the brushless upgrade. the esky 3100 or 3900's are drop-in replacements. you will need a 18amp brushless esc to with it. if you are running the stock receiver/4n1 you may need to do some hacking to get this to work but it's easy enough and well worth the performance and longevity you get out of it.

When upgrading to the 3100 motor, what is the best gear to use? 9 tooth gear, 10 tooth gear, 11 tooth gear
