Just found. Missing link between mCPX and Blade 300X?

Ooh, I'm assuming this is what John was talking about. This is going to be a big hit for sure, but we probably won't get it till new years knowing HH.

Doesn't look like an mcpx to me... Can you link me to the mcpx page with that picture? Or could the op link me to a site with the 130 X?

While "BLH3780" may be the product number for a mCPX V2 BNF, the helicopter in the picture does not appear to be an mCPX. On the other hand, PhotoShop is a wonderful thing!

What bothers me is that the OP knows about this before it's announced by Blade. Of course, anything is possible, but April Fool's Day wasn't that long ago either... :Slap

Often times the Aussies usually find the products that are supposed to be announced in the US the next day so it wouldn't surprise me that much since a new heli product is being announced tomorrow.

You sure on that?

The only reference I found to a BLH3780 was on one page using google, which leads me to believe it's wrong. The mCPX V2 is BLH3680.

Upon farther review, I think your right. HH doesn't have a 3780 on their site.

I've seen plenty of mCPX's that have mods to look just like the pic, using the sr120 tail etc..

Interesting but there isn't enough difference in size between my 120sr and my mcpx to make me want one. Hopefully I will have a 300x by then. With that said, ill probably still get one

Of Course I'll wait on the Official Anouncement from Horizon Hobby but if this is indeed "Fact", I'm going to start looking at selling all my Walkera stuff, save maybe my MiniCP, to have funds for this Heli as well.

Damn, I Love this Hobby and its Technology!!!:Bang

Just in case it was an accidental pre-release that gets pulled, I know, I know... Screenshot or it didn't happen...

Wow! 100 class, AS3X flybarless, 2S brushless motor and shaft-driven variable pitch tail, this is just the heli I've been waiting for, I hope it's true!!

Now I need to "TRY" not to buy any more helis till this thing comes out.

If this thing is for real I suspect there will be alot of used mcpx's for sale, mine will be..lol

When I first came on this website, nigh 9 months ago, I could not understand how people could have 'fleets of helis'.... Now... look at my mess... @##!@3! I'm not pre-ordering....

My 300X still hasn't arrived yet. Bet you I'll have my X5 and possibly X7 flying before I even get to see this 130X....

You must have better eye sight than me then. I think the 120sr is the perfect size heli for my flying area. I lose orientation easily on my msrx and imagine the mcpx would be the same since they are basically the same size. I would love a mcpx in a 120 size well 130 in this case . I am holding off on a mcpx waiting to see what blade does even a fp minus the flybar like a 120 size msrx would be attractive to me as I have little interest or the skills to do all that crazy 3d stuff and love my lil msrx...just wish it was bigger...the 120sr is a fail with the flybar and lack of power compared to the msrx.

Collective pitch helps alot in the wind too, I'm not any good at 3d stuff yet either.

Yea, looks good. Looks like although linear servos are used, they had one specially done for the tail or so it would seem from the parts description.

You know, I'll probably get one...

Just a bit disillusioned about the release, get everyone excited and then long delay cycle... I'm still waiting on my 300X.

But this may well be another game changing bird.

I think the mCP X is a bit tougher than the Walkera tail motor offerings. Maybe this 130X with linear servos won't have issues with servos stripping. Although it is STILL a TT driven tail and I don't know what headspeeds we'll be seing with this thing.

Thought of getting a Walkera 120D02S - the TT thing... whatever.. but in the end I didn't. But this... maybe.... But I'm not going to fall for the 'pre-order' thing again.
