Been raining a lot in your neck of the woods. BigRHS was telling me the same thing and he's from up east around there as well. Been hot as hell here in the Houston/Galveston area

Yea I don't what's up with the weather but it's been pissing me off, I can't keep my damn truck clean even though I've washed it every other day basically between storms and I get a few decent (windy) flights before I have to pack it up and go back in. All day while at work it doesn't rain a drop but as soon as I'm leaving the office the sky is black and starts pouring on my way home. I wish it would rain all day while I'm stuck inside working and let up when it's time to get out and fly!

Default MSRx

Hi guys,

Here is my MSRx. It has the CF Rekonheli airframe and alum head and swash plate. Rekonheli landing gear, tail fin and alum tail motor mount. I put the MCPx tail motor and one of the MqX motors with the 11t pinion on it. I'm running the Thunder Power 240mAh 3.7 V batteries in it.

how's the power compared to stock with your motor setup (nice looking bird btw)?

Probably wont do it anytime soon though b/c I have 3 stock main motors to wear out first.

Default My MSRx

Hi Koi-fish,

Well the motor is the same as the stock MSRx motor...but it has an 11 tooth pinion. I think the head speed has gone up and the 240 batteries help too.

When I have been able to make it outside( has been raining a fair amount here in "The Great White North" ) the fff has increased. She is a hand full now lol. Trying to figure out how to get her to do a barrel roll now. Came close the last time out but ended up left banking out of it! Run time with 240's is about 61/2 minutes.

Okay... now I feel like a TOTAL moron.

I put a spare mSR X motor on my Q when one of the Q's motors burned out... no wonder it wasn't flying QUITE right since then. Never even though to look at the tooth count!!!

We all have our moments lol. The other day I went to fly my B400 and didn"t remember that I still had the settings for the MSRx loaded up on the DX6i....for bout 5 min couldn't figure out why the 400 wouldn't start up!

Got me a new Hakko 888 soldering rig for my birthday today (bd is 27th). Ordered me a brushless tail for my HP05 mcpx to try it out as a first major project.

As I wanted something to try it out on this evening, I did some lights up on my stocker (non brushless) msrx. Turned out pretty good. Sorry for the not so good pics, it is what it is

Flew at night for the first time, that was interesting. Too bad they dont have a night rig for the msrx blades. The lights came from a mcx2 kit, btw.

I cannot stress enough how the right tool for the job makes things easier, and this soldering rig is NICE for the price range.

Yup, that's the model I got. Same tip too, got three other tips as well.

Was surprised that a local brick n mortar had it cheaper than what I could find it for online. Plus, there the instant gratification factor.

Can hit power leads easily now on my helis main board, etc. was a lot harder with my cheaper Hakko pencil

I'm still new to the MSRX (just had mine for a month) and got the 2nd one a couple of weeks ago. However, when I got the 2nd one, I had to make sure that I could tell them apart. The first is the red canopy and the 2nd has the red blades.

Both have RKH grips, head, swash, and shaft collar.

I do plan to go brushless on them both eventually.

Flies a lot smoother and a lot less maintenance as well. For sure do the blade grips, you wont bust links anymore. I did the entire assembly on both mine as well.

I put the swash on and found that it made it smoother and more responsive. I got the blade grips because I discovered the joy (NOT!) of grip balls blowing out mid flight! I went with the head because it looks better with the grips but don't have any experience with only swapping out the head and leaving other stuff stock. Got the shaft collar because, well, I've got that collector "bug"

Default MSR X with ultralight indoor training 'canopy'

I've made a very light and open canopy to prevent motor from cooking. Its sturdy enough to protect electronics and its also very quiet now... I only use it when I'm flying inside my house. Its made from ty-raps.
