View Full Version : Blade CP + AEK + extras $140 / trade

Blade CP.
Started life as a stock CP.. You know how these things go.
Full photos and 2 movie clips taken less than an hour ago. I took the clips just to show blade rotation and the fact that it does fly:
It's now running a 9t main motor, less than 1/2 hour total run time.
I've got a 9A micro fuse on it, which is probably 2 amps too large.
Recent 4-in-1 with under 1/2 hour run time.
It's been modified with dual tail rotor motors and corresponding fin.
I've been running a 11.1v LiPO @1100ma - with this lipo it I believe the run time is 10-15 minutes.
Has the full AEC (Aerobatic enhancement Kit) - the 9t motor, front heat sink, rear heat sink removed as it's now got the dual tail motors.
I'm a relative noob pilot, I've been through a CX2 and have a lot of aircraft 3d experience. This was my first CP heli. It's been crashed once, due to a 4-in-1 that died at about 8 feet up. It came down loosing power so the only real damage was the blades, minor body damage, and one landing gear. Gear was replaced, blades replaced.
It has the following extras:
1) Blades. Lots of Blades. Carbon Fiber blades (never used), one set of used symetrical blades (used, still in good shape, tips taped), one set plasti-blades (on the heli) - flat bottom, one set OEM woodies (new), and a spattering of mismatched flatbladed woodies in the event you wanted to get creative with balance.
2) New main shaft and drive gear set. Thought I might need a spare one day.
3) Spare gear
4) I think I've got a spare tail rotor somewhere.. maybe some other non-photo spares.
Also included: stock transmitter w/ batteries. (not show in photos)
Not included: 1100ma LiPo available at additional cost, $25, less than 4 flights on it total. Always balanced charged. No charger. I can use it in parallel on a larger heli, which is why it isn't included.

Current condition:
1) Flies well and flies for a long time. With flat plasti-blades, it really not 3d capable as the blades are heavy. It falls out of a loop, which is the extent of my 3d attempts.
2) Enclosed mpgs of the heli starting up and coming off the garage floor in a bit of wind.
3) Never crashed hard.
Full disclosure - I'm a seller that will tell you *everything* I know about something - good or bad.
1) Touch of JB weld on the tail housing (not the tail shaft) - doesn't seem to bother it at all. (see photos)
2) One screw missing from a tail motor mount, again - never had a problem with it, but it is missing. (see photos)
3) Crack in canopy (see photos)
4) You really need an 11.1v lipo with a 9t gear. A stock 7.4V battery simply won't last very long and will require near 100% throttle. A 700-800ma would be best for 3d, I wouldn't exceed 1100ma in terms of size/weight - it'll fly a long time on 1100ma.
I have no reason to believe this heli is damaged, not flight worth, or will soon become unflightworthy.
The CP isn't the most stable heli, but the tail is trimmed (may require slight changes over the flight time of the lipo). She arrows into the wind a bit during FF, which makes stalls pretty easy.
Reason for sellingb: I bought a Falcon and don't need 3 helis.
What is included: everything in still photos ('cept the photo w/ the lipo) + transmitter + any extra spares I can find in my heli box.
how do you take payment Paypal + 3%, check, money order, Shipping is via USPS at buyers expense - your choice of shipping, but typically under $20 in the USA. Shipped in original box. USA only.
References? By email, I can reference what could be a completely bogus ebayID - you're welcome to contact me through it to verify. COD is a possiblity if paid for up front.
price? $140 + $25 if you want the 1100ma lipo. I guarantee the battery condition.
These things really fly soo much better with an 11.1v lipo and 8t-9t pinon compared to "out of the box".

TRADES? Sure +/- cash.. I need a nice Lipo balance charger, a very near new 1600-2000ma 11.1v lipo, Consider electric RC car/RC boat something easy for the wife..

Blade will need a $4.00 tail rotor gearbox housing to be completely flight worthy, cost is $3.99. Absolutely no damage to tail shaft. I'll include it if you ask nicely, I've just got to find the time to pick it up at the hobby store.

Spare tail blades included (new)

Does your radio signal suck the way you have that antenna wrapped around the skids?I would think it would.
good luck selling it

Thank you for your productive public comment. No, I haven't notice any issues with radio range or signal. I'm in an area where we don't have a lot of population and probably not a lot of RF.

If you think the price is too high, let me know and I can drop it. I'd prefer to be fair to other people interested in the hobby. I thought it was priced fairly, but perhaps not. If you think I'm being unethical or advertising something in condition that I shouldn't be advertising it in (IE - my creative antenna has damaged the RX) then I'll pull it. I tried to provide as much information as possible, photos, and actual mpgs of it off the ground.

I'm interested. Is there going to be anything else I need to buy in order to get it to fly. Meaning, is the stock motor/pinion available with the stock battery and charger? I'm new to this so I'd like to start with the out of the box before moving to li-po etc.

I have the stock motor available, along with the stock batteries, yes... I didn't find them particularly impressive. If you're running stock batteries and pinion, you'll need to ditch the plastic blades due to weight. The CP limps along and has a pretty limited flight time on the stock batteries.

How much would shipping to 18966 cost?

How about swap for a Tamiya Stadium Raider (Modified with the Sport motor, Sport Gearbox) and a MaxAmps 2100?

Twizter - as long as we're in the same ballpark for $$, sure.. Can you email the details to [email protected]?

I'm at 78645.
I would expect 20-30 USD in the 48 states.
