Default Anyone else waiting to hear about a brushless master cp to go into Production

I just don't want to buy the Master CP and then convert it to brushless.

I'm waiting for Walkera to fix the throttle hold delay and fixed ID issues. Converting to brushless is cheap enough and it's a good flyer with the oversized brushed motors anyway.

If you want better 3D performance and BL, go for the V120D02S (on sale for $140 at Wow.)

Except for the servos, the Master is more forgiving. The V120 has a driven tail which doesn't survive crashes as well. But after a while, you'll get faster at repairing it.

I think the choice would depend on your flying skills and goals.

Well I'm still learning and really haven't crashed much lately. I'm just flying around nothing advanced yet. Has anyone tried the new metal servos they been offering.

I put the metal servos on mine. Only had a few easy flights so far but they seem fine.

Default Master CP MEtal Servo Replacement and Set Up

Hi

Just replaced all 3 servos on my CP to the metal ones. My question is I cant seem to set the pitch on the blades correctly. The default setting on normal mode is -15 at PL, +25 at PM and +55 at PH. My swash is level or seems to be at 0 throttle. However at mid throttle each blade has a different pitch using a pitch gauge. I have set the servo arms to 90 or as close to it but cant seem to get this issue corrected. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

Throttle stick at mid position arms at 90 and 0 pitch ? If not reset arms and adjust untill you have these set correctly . Also make sure you have a linear pitch curve before you try to set up head .

Thanks for the advice. I have the arms at 90 mid throttle and 0 pitch after playing around with it. What should the pitch be at 0 and full throttle respectively? Is it -2 and +9 or 10?

(low stick - 2 deg ) ( mid stick 0 deg ) (high stick +10 deg ) These numbers will give you a very calm collective feel in normal mode .

Depends on the heli . On my trex 450pro they say 9-11 deg . 10 deg both ways of center is a good number for beginners . When i stated i ran about -2 at low stick , +4 deg at mid stick and 10 deg at high stick . I dont recommend running +4 at mid though because the transition to idle ups will cause heli to drop when going from normal to idle up modes . You can run higher pitch numbers if your motor will do it without bogging and you don't have binding issues in the head .

pitch is somewhat subjective.....with a heavy heli like the master cp +10 to -10 will probably feel like it doesn't want to take off unless you give it a bunch of throttle. Mine is set at +14.5 to -14.5 there's a little slop in the head so i can't get a perfect measurement but that's pretty close. You just don't want to put so much pitch that the blades slow down significantly at full throttle.

That was the best answer I've heard come out of this thread, and that's what I did a few years ago, the little 120 is a hand-full to keep up with. I also bought the new 450 series and they are sort of fun as well. We can all dream of what the MCP could have been, but there are options, as you have pointed out.
