Once in the air, how does it feel compared to the CP S? And please say it doesn’t do that twitch thing.

Been having a lot of fun with my camera drones a lot and literally haven't flown any CP heli for almost 2 years so haven't flown the new models including the Nano CPS. What I've found is camera drones kill heli skills! They've turned me into a stick banger in no time! I wasn't feeling comfortable flying my other helis so I've bought the Nano S2. It feels a little under-powered but it's very smooth and stable for my intended purpose. I'm now relearning my inverted orientations and slow inverted circles. This thing is perfect for the job! I've dropped it 3 times from a few feet up, hit throttle hold in time and literally zero damage!

I'd be interested to know if that canopy is one solid piece like a TREX 150X or if it is the same flimsy style material as the CPX and CPS with the canopy and windshield glued together. Maybe it's just me but I think the color scheme on the S2 is pretty lame and basic.

Take the plunge! Be a beta tester! And if you don’t like it send it my way. Mm hmm!

It has a glued on windshield just like any of the other micros I have from Blade. Personally think the canopies are not that flimsy but they're WAY overpriced, especially compared to the T-rex 150's which is much higher quality and cheaper!

I already did that with the K130. That thing is a beast.

I agree, this S2 canopy scheme I see in the photos is pretty lame and tame. I like warm colors. Red, yellow, orange. Splash of black is good.

I'm going to just pop on my CP S tail fin and canopy to be honest. Assuming it fits.

I'm sure the old canopy fits. You can always go with a CF one

perlinauto and Pilotrob like this.

Looks like a truck load of S2’s arrived. eBay has a pretty big stock of them for sale right now.

Great! My backordered S2 from HorizonHobby just shipped today too. Some big boat arrived recently.

Horizon Hobby has them too, but I think I gonna wait till reviews come in and see how it behaves and parts are all available before I decide to get one.

I just ordered one to test. I will definitely do a write up on it after flying it. I want to see how it stacks up against the CPX and CPS. I’m also going to test out fitting in the CPX’s brushless kit to see if it is a possibility.

Hey Chris, really looking forward to your report! Especially your experience with the brushless in the S2.

My latest brushless CPS has been really propelling my skills! Thanks to this nano, I look forward to nose-forward inverted flight with my Oxys this Spring.

So now that the Nano S2 has been out for 2 months, what do you guys think of it?

How does it compare to the Nano CPS?

Is it as durable as the CPS or CPX?

Same power?

Same "has a mind of it's own" sometimes?

Has anyone surpassed 100 flights?

Would you buy it again?
