Default mCP X Brushless conversion or 130X??

This eventally will be asked at least a 1,000 times in the coming months, so I might as well kick it off. Is the 130X the end of mCP X Brushless conversions, or will they still have a place? I have a brand new in box V1 mCP X I was going to convert to brushless in the coming months, but now wondering if that makes any sense given the announcement of the 130X?

So what's everyone think at this point??

I think we will have to wait until people own a few 130xs before we can have the discussion. Will lear jets still be beneficial for travel when the time.machine comes out?

Personally I think the 130x will be better for the average person when it comes out for several reasons.
1. No modding required on the 130x
2. A lot of fine tuning has to be done on a brushless mcpx
3. You'll likely never see parts for a brushless mcpx at LHS
If you like to mod things though and tear it apart and build it for the ground up the mcpx is likely the way to go. My guess is for the 130x modding scene it won't be anything like how many different brushless options their are for the mcpx.

I'm going to say that is a bad comparison consider both 130x and mcpx are here, today, in this time.

I wouldnt consider the 130x here today....ask anyone who has pre ordered a 300x what they think of their vaporware helis that were supposed to be in the here and now category.

Pretty sure mid june is highly optimistic...Im thinking in time for Christmas....maybe.

If you wanna crash I'd say beef up the mCP, if you are past frequent crashes and wanna fly more get the 130X...or upgrade to BL and them when the 130 comes you'll be ready for it.

I was frustrated for a while today because I purchased a BL kit for my mCP X last weekend (haven't even received it yet). After thinking about it for a while, I think I would still have purchased it knowing the 130X was coming because:

1. We have no idea when the 130X will really arrive
2. My "new" BL mCP X can be flown THIS coming weekend
3. A lot of stick time on a BL mCP X could only help when it comes time to fly the more expensive to operate (parts cost more) 130X

I will still get an mcpx and mod the crap out of it before I pick up a 130x. By then maybe there will be lots of aftermarket stuff for the 130 . I cant leave anything stock! Its an addiction.

This is a stupid question.

1. You never can have to many helicopters so buy 130x
2. You got to go brushless on the mcpx it only right
3. Just do it all I say
4. Then go ahead while your at it and pick up a 300x.

I never fly the mCPX inside.
My yard is plenty big enough for a 130x.

I may sell my mCPX (still stock), to a friend who will want to be learning CP in the June timeframe, to help fund the 130x that I want..

Buy a 130 x and do a C05 mod on the mcpx.

I would definitly mod the mCPX because it's a ton of fun and the 130X is months away and waiting isn't one of my strengths Oh wait, that's right I've already BL modded two of my mCPX's

I'd say go for it, and pick up the 130X when it's released.. I'm sure the practice you'll get from the BL mCPX will be usefull when moving on to the 130X..

Man I wish people could go demo a bl mcpx,

The mcpx bl flys the way it did in horizons demo video.

I rarely crash on my bl mcpx, even though I'm no 3d master
Its just the fact of how I fly, I tend to go heavy on collective and bog the head it would easily spin out at stock mcpx , next thing I knew I was falling fast and disoriented, then crash.

Now all my helis have way more power than they need, well more than enough that they don't care when I'm banging the collective, they dont bog , spin out and crash.

I say the only way to go is with a heli that was built right from the get go, or mod the mcpx to bl.
