Overall I am very curious about your experiences with the frame, and its crash performance. Keep them coming!
I'm guessing it will be the same material thickness as their 4g6 frame (which I have). That frame is strong and is pretty much designed in the same manner. My 2s 4g6 weighs in at 95g with lipo and I've crashed that very hard many times. Never broke the frame anywhere.

Time will tell with their mcpx version.

+1 Can't wait for mine. It supposed to leave Hong Kong today. On top of that you cannot beat Xtreme customer service. It's better than Horizon's.

Thanks for that, Amp. Pretty much seals the deal for me. Gonna try out the Xtreme frame.

I was looking at the MH X frame on MHs web site. They show the swash arm holder thing in two different positions. The standard left side, and the rear. What is the difference?

for those of you watching this thread with baited breath I thought you may like to know philshobbyshop.com has the new frame listed, although not in stock, for 43.99.

http://www.philshobbyshop.com/catalo...ame_blade_mcpx

doesnt look like they are offering the new pin for the changed AR position at this time though.

enjoy

Has anybody heard about the "competition"?
It's been a long time since it kind of finished.
