COX R/C E-Z Bee... Empty COX R/C E-Z Bee...

Post  Nickerz on Mon Apr 27, 2020 9:23 pm

This is my first post as I just found this forum I Love This Forum!  and hope to find more topics about COX models especially the E-Z Bee! Babe Bee

I just bought a NIB E-Z Bee off eBay and I created a BLOG for it here...
https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?3585779-Bought-A-COX-R-C-E-Z-Bee

I also stumbled upon a post from the guy who apparently created the prototype for the E-Z Bee here...
https://www.rcuniverse.com/forum/1178627-post6.html

Now back to my E-Z Bee I just bought. I'm really excited to own this for a 2nd time since this plane was my very first RC airplane ever but unfortunately I never got to fly it as I explain in my BLOG link above. Now that I have it again, I initially intended to fly it and have fun with it! RC Plane  However, seeing how rare this plane is becoming, I now think I want to keep it as a collectors item and collect more COX models (i.e., COX 049 Cesna 182 Skylane)! Cool

So how do we get COX to re-release these models like Tamiya has been doing!? Huh...  That would awesome! If I had the money, I'd resurrect this company! Small Cox Logo

Let me know if you have a NIB E-Z Bee or Cesna 182 Skylane please. If I get a 2nd E-Z Bee I'd be more willing to fly it knowing I have a NIB as a spare.

P.S. Man I love the emoji's in this forum too! Not to mention the mouse cursor is a COX Engine! Too cool!!!! Cool

P.P.S. Here are some pics of my Office/Hobby Room... Popcorn

Nick: glad you like the kit. I started flying with a similar kit, but electric. I now have a couple of used ez-bees I have been trying to sell for another coxengineforum member for several years.
  I hope you are not using the original R-C equipment. It was pure junk. I look forward to following your blog about the ez-bee.

Thanks for the replies guys and for making me feel welcome!

I loved that video of the EZ Bee II which was very detailed! Also, great points by David about using newer technology. I have and love Spektrum so it would make sense to use new electronics (receiver, servos, radio). A part of me would love to get the experience using the old OEM stuff just to see what I was missing as a kid but then I could end up crashing it or losing it.

Happydad,
I sent ya a PM about those pics. Thanks again for posting them but I do want to try to get a 2nd EZ Bee (yellow/white) that is in really good condition.

Guess what I found on the front cover of a copy in Model Airplane News magazine (December 1988 issue)? Yep, E-Z Bee! I'll post the entire article in another post right now...

COX R/C E-Z Bee... Empty Old equipment too slow

Post  happydad on Wed Apr 29, 2020 11:49 pm

Nick: if you do want to make a comparison of the old versus newer equipment, please don’t do it inflight. That old Sanwa system and servos were too slow and caused many crashes with delay between trying to turn one direction and actually going that way.
   p.s. after one or two flight your brand new ez bee will look like the pics I sent.

Very true Happydad! Yeah, I think I'll be dropping in new electrics to enjoy many years of flight.

By the way, I didn't even think about the delay in Servo travel which would be very interesting to say the least. So I kind of take a lot of the newer technology for granted that I use everyday today that didn't exist back then.

Thanks!

Btw I also have a hobby lobby or tower hobby electric cardinal I purchased way back when. It had a brushed motor in a plastic motor mount, long since broken, and sits on the shelf.
