Spare Parts to Keep on Hand
  • Tail boom assemblies: Unless you upgrade to a solid boom, expect the stock hollow one to splinter in a crash.
  • Spindles: These will bend rather easily in a crash.
  • Swash plates: The rear ball is easily broken off in a crash.
  • Main frames: Canopy posts are a weak point.
  • Rotor head linkages: Even if you do the hot glue mod, they can still snap in a crash. Keep an 8 pack on hand.

Worthwhile Aftermarket Upgrades
  • Xtreme/ Rakon Heli/ MicroHeli CNC Aluminum swash plate: Metal swash plates remove a majority of the slop from the rotor head. All of these are worthwhile, but MicroHeli boasts replaceable balls.
  • MicroHeli Rotor Hub: While not a performance upgrade per se, it captures the rotor head links so you don’t lose them in a crash.
  • Rakon Heli CF Frame: The frame boasts an adjustable motor mount, perfect for brushless upgrades.
  • Asteroid-Designs Product Line: All products are top notch according to online reviews.
  • K&B Dream Design Blades: They come in a wide variety of bright colors improving visibility. They make the bird flip quickly and handle the wind well. Durability seems to differ from pair to pair.
  • Paper Canopies: Just “Bling” but cost effective

Great work syma! Do you think the mcpx wiki page should be added?

And where are the best places to purchase mcpx parts online? I've been wondering that myself.

Thank you for organizing this. It is so much easier to look here and find information rather then wading through the thousands of posts in the main mcpx forum.

Great Post,
I am a newb, and bought the mcp x. Took about 4-5 days to get a nice hover. And it's been a month since purchase, can fly pretty decent, and have a good crash now and then. lol

Default Connector types and names

What are the names and types of the connectors.
Battery connector and the motor connectors?


Any places to purchase these?

Thanks!

Thanks for putting this thread together...just got my MCPX and I was able to get it set up and (sorta) flying in no time with everything neatly in one place. Thanks!

Question

For the alternate Phoenix sim model, do you replace any files or just add it to the MCPX folder?

Is there something wrong with the first 3 links, or is it just my cpu?

Thanks, this is great!

Thank you so much.

I just watched you vid on centering neutral pitch; I was curious if you cover leveling the swash plate in one of the first 3 segments?

This is the first heli I have set up and it is very wild with the pitch and throttle curves right now and I need to start learning... part of the problem is that I do not understand programing a heli and have never done it before; the other part of my problem is I am learning all the heli features of the 11x and I still know nothing

Short version of a long frustrating story:

The DX4e transmitter that comes with the RTF mCP is a piece of junk. If you're having problems with your mCP that make you think you have a 3-1 board problem, and you are using a DX4e, you should seriously consider isolating the transmitter as the potential problem first.
