Problem soloing Hyperius w/ Axton

I'm having problems soloing Hyperius with my Axton character and I need help. I can kill off all his robots with no problems however after that I hit a roadblock. His Nova blasts is too much, and throwing my turret as a distraction only helps for a few seconds before it succumbs to Hyperius sheer fire power.
Here's my following gear with skill tree:

Lucid Hellfire
Unkempt Harold
Miss Moxxi's Bad Touch
de Deee! Rocket Launcher (purple rarity)
Bee Shield
Homing Telsa
Slayer of Terra COM
Protective Relic (26%/26% Capacity/Recharge shield)

Any room for improvment?

As far as I know, your turret should primarely be used as protection against his nova's. Their shield can completely negate damage from the nova's but will die very fast when he fires his missiles. So I suggest that when he is about to use his nova. Drop a turret, when the nova's are over reclaim then so they are ready for the next nova.

My turret has no shield. Reading about its sheild negates his nova is interesting. I posted my skll tree but I don't know what's the right image bbcode.

double unkempt would be better IMO, and binary thunderball fists might help as well. You might also want a fibber or a sandhawk. Good luck.

I think the only legit video I've seen of Axton soloing Hyperius after the bee nerf is to kill him by using a sham and a norfleet. Hyperius and his minions give you an endless supply of ammo provided that you have a very high absorption chance on your sham.
