Default NANO CP X flight review and info!


Here is some flights and a short review. It flies like my brushless MCPX minus the shakes. Got lots of power and performance! The first shipment is on its way here now! The production has been approved a short while ago according to a Horizon Team Member.

Thanks
Cade

Finally, I 'real' review

Looks pretty sweet...more like a mini BL Mcpx than a smaller stock Mcpx

Hmmm...what to do, keep my BL Mcpx (and most likely barely fly it), or sell it (at a massive loss), and get this little sucker

Thank you for the review callouscade!

Were you able to get the tail to blow out when stick banging?

It flies just like a brushless MCPX with a 7A HP05 setups. It feels a tad more locked in though than the MCPX.

As for the tail, it was holding ROCK SOLID! The inly time it blew out was with a large gust of crosswind and a pitch pump. But it only spun 90 then held fine! It only happened ONCE on a low battery!

Thanks
Cade

How does it fly in tight spaces? Sounds quick so still may be too large for living room 3D? I'm looking for a tight indoor inverted trainer.... Oh what does it matter I'll buy one no matter what.

With a little practice it can easily fly in a living room. It is fast, but if you just use collective management during maneuvers it can stay real stationary!

For indoor flying, I want to know what happens to what it hits. If it doesn't smash my flat screen, chunk my drywall or slice my blinds, I'll be buying one for sure.

I think so yes. They're single 150mah 25C batteries.

Thanks
Cade

I wonder how much extra weight it'll be able to handle?

Probably not a lot. I don't know if I was using a very old used motor but it wouldn't perform with a larger battery. Buy ten of the suckers and a 4 port charger and you're all set.

According to another Horizon Pilot I talked to, there's a shipment coming here to the US and is in it's way and the production was approved! Should be here soon!

Thanks
Cade

In one of the videos, it appears that it is available in white? Or was that just a black/white video trick?
I love yellow for visibility, but the white looks nice as well.

I ordered the 160mah batts from HKing - think they'll work (30C)?
