Default New MCPX in

After constantly having to repair all my Helis
I took Ron’s advice and bought one of Blades MCPX models. Just flew for about 30 minutes this morning on Iddl up 1 Without a single crash
Looks like this is a better way to learn. Definitely having more fun this way
Thanks. John

Which Mcpx?

V1/V2 brushed?
Mcpx BL (2s)?
Mcps with the Safe on board?

About the Mcpx V1/V2 brushed tail and a bit too less power of main motor: https://www.helifreak.com/showthread...55#post8350093

The Mcpx V2 with Dsm2-only (not the BL sucessor) was old / outdated 9 years ago.

Nevertheless have fun.

A friend moved over to Blade 450x V1 heli (BeastX) with no problems.

Yep. But I don't think that's the one he is talking about.
I assume its the BL2. I think there is only 1 "MCPX".

mCPX BL2 BNF Basic with AS3X and SAFE
This one has options for any of the DSMX transmitters (DX-, NX or iX-) and it uses 2 brushless motors and 2S LiPo.
And... it's $200. That's pretty close to what I paid for the original mCPX v1 with the brushed motors. That one last about 10 flights.

After crashing my Blade 400 several times and more recently my Tarot 450 Pro V2 FBL Heli, I have also taken Ron`s advice to fly my Mcpx. The wind was far too strong yesterday, so I flew my Nano Cp s in the house! I only have a very small living room so took it really steady - Ron`s tune up and tamer settings advice worked really well I was considering quitting before his help!
Many thanks Ron, I feel rejuvenated with this hobby again
