I've resolved to continue with the S2 until until I hit a certain milestone in my skills. Then I'll focus on the 150X and then transition to my Oxy2, and my soon to be purchased Fusion 180.

I'm about to maiden my 360cfx as soon as the weather cooperates. I expect it will feel closer to the AccuRC sim and further away from the s2. We will see

I have both the Nano Cps and Nano S2.


The Nano S2 is for sure much more a beginner heli and I only use 3D mode. When I switch from Nano S2 to Nano Cps, I can't nearly hold the Nano Cps.


The Nano S2 is very stable for a beginner, and I don't see much difference between stability mode and 3D mode.


For me the Nano Cps is the only true 3D expert heli.


I think Blade also classed the Nano S2 as a beginner level 1 heli.

And it did indeed fly way more like the sim models. That sound! Wow!

You should try the original CPX if you you love the Nanos!

The Nano S2 becomes a Nano Cps like heli, if you set Expo to -55%. Then it is as flippy and agile as before the Ncps.

And here I thought I was hardcore doing -15%.

Hi xoexoe,


the problem is, that if you practise with the new Nano S2, you get used to a too much stabilized system, which bigger helis for outdoors then don't have.


This was always my feeling. The old Nano Cps was a preparation for the later outdoor flying with bigger stuff.


In that aspect the Nano S2 fails. It is more or less, a pure beginner stabilized heli (even in 3D mode).


Therefor I set the Expo -55%, to get a difficult indoor heli: to be prepared for later outdoors.

I forget how much expo I have. To me it feels really nice. I can't control the CPS at all. It's all broken and I don't think I will repair it though I like the S2 much better.


My problem was the opposite. The CPS felt way too twitchy. My bigger helis feel much more controlled, even if more powerful. So the S2 actually feels better for practice. In fact you need to have more finesse on the sticks to avoid bogging it down which translates into much better collective management and way better flying on the big ones. I find the big ones much more forgiving. Just power out of your bad moves

I only fly circuits but I find the 360cfx easier to fly than the nano s2 ... the movements are much less violent... more graceful or something ... slower maybe?

I cannot agree that the Nano S2 is a fail when in 3D mode outside. I fly mine in the breeze every morning, so it gets kicked around quite a bit. I have found this to be very educational.

It's true that it takes a few packs to transition to a different heli, like my 150x, after having flown the S2 for weeks. But where the S2 wins is that it teaches the muscle memory needed for doing maneuvers on other helis, without its own glitches getting in the way.

And it gets better as you move in size. Man I wish I had the possibility to buy a 700. I love how the 500 and 570 just seem to float and feel like you have all the time in the world to correct. My 380 is a little rocket in comparison. Of course the moment I crash a 700 probably will regret buying it LOL.


But yes helis feel much easier to fly as you move up in size. If you keep your headspeed down to non-insane levels you can cruise around pretty nicely.

Couldn't agree more

A few weeks ago, my dad bought a nano S2 to practice his indoor movements. He uses the nano only in idle2 (stunt mode) and he was 100% enthusiastic in a way that he convinced me to order one as well... so I did.

Long story short: My order got delayed and I ended up flying my dad's nano S2...I don't like this heli at all It's way too stable and it reacts really funny on stick movements (feels like a delay when you hit throttle up or down). Since my order was delayed I was able to cancel it.

Nano S2 is a no go for me...I'll stick to my cps to practice my inverted flights.

Hi Psycho_dad,


it is very well, how you describe the problem!!!!!!


Blade honestly classed Nano S2 as a level 1 heli. That was not before.


Put Expo to -55% or higher and you have something similar to previous Nano Cps.

Saturday = fly time
Will play a bit with the expo-rates with the S2 and see how it reacts.

Will let you know the outcome.

Those who think it’s too stable, are you flying with the bullet blades or the regular blades? I replaced my bullet blades with some microheli blades and it feels like the CPS, or at least how I remember the CPS felt.

The thing about the cps is they are not all created the same. My first cps was very stable, but could still be flipped and stuff. My second cps was very unstable. I could throw that one around, but simply hoving was a challenge.

Did you try the bullet blades on the S2? How was the difference?

I don’t think I noticed any difference, but it’d been a while since I flew my CP S with KBDD when I first flew the then-new S2 with bullets.
