Maybe you realised this by now but the cx2 takes 800mah 2s. Surprised it even got off the ground with a 160mah With 800mah expect a good 8-10mins.

Make sure there is a slight amount of vertical movement in the main shaft of the upper blades.
If there is no movement, simply loosen the lower gear and adjust the clearance.
Also check the main battery wires coming off the PC board. They may be frayed.

Good luck!!
They are a fun little heli to fly inside!!
