Default Is Blade providing the best micro helis for winter training ?

Hi folks,


I am exclusively using Blade micro for winter indoor training.


The brushless Align Trex 150x, I rather use outside in the garden.


My indoor arena is a double garage. So it's large enough for a Blade Mcps and Blade Nano S2. I prefer the Mcps which flies more natural. I do switch after each flight between these two.
My experience with the small motors is, that you have to pause them 5 minutes after flight.


What is now your opinion, and which micro's do you fly in winter-indoor ?

I flew the nano s2 in my garage last winter, though I was brand new to the hobby at that time (well - i had a couple fixed pitch tiny blade heli before...) I don't know if I'll bother with that tiny thing this year as its so different than anything else. Probably just sim and sneak out to flying field on weekends when its not windy.

This is a good plan, IMO. Different if micros were all you had, I guess. To answer the OP's question, I would say it depends on your preference.

I have 2 nano cps (one with BL update and one stock). I fly those 2 on a weekly basis all seasons round.

Don't really like the nano S2 (to stable).

Last couple of winters I focused on new maneuvers with a brushless Nano CPS and then a brushless Nano S2. Lately, I've been doing all my practice with the Align Trex 150X -- this one just flies so much better that I have no interest in flying my nanos!

If limited to indoors, though, then for sure I would go to the nanos. The brushed MCPS would be the largest I'd try indoors.

Hi navigator2011,


I agree, the Mcps is the largest you can fly indoors (for me: double garage). The Trex150x is already too powerful and better for the garden.


Normally best was the Nano Cpx/Nano Cps. It's small size was best for small rooms.


But the new Nano S2 is too beginner stabilized. Therefor I switched to Mcps (brushed).


Important is, that you can switch immediately to a 600 or 700 size heli, as soon as the weather clears off.


With the overstabilized Nano S2, I have difficulties to switch afterwards to a larger heli.

Is the stabilization on the Nano s2 part of the beginner flight modes? I have an old Dx7s TX and it does not support those modes and i have never noticed any over stabilization. Feels pretty similar to anything else once its in Idle up.
