Default Which heli is the best for winter indoor flight (150x, Nano Cps, XK110) ?

Hi all,

Winter is approaching and outdoor flight slowly ceases.

I have very limited room indoors (only garage). Therefor I would like to know which model you are using for the winter season ?!

I personally own the Trex 150x and Blade Nano Cps. The Trex 150x flies best, but seems a little too powerfull for small space.

The Nano Cps is not bad.
What is your opinion and experience ?!

Don't know you skill level but if you only want a indoor micro strolling around than the ncps will be the choice, all you need are some good batteries and a brushless kit.

Why the brushless kit ?

For indoor the stock configuration should be sufficient. In fact I do fly the Ncps for the moment in our garage.

I just would like to know what others are using in wintertime at home.

Skilllevel: 4 years, but started late at age over 50, no 3D.

Stock main motor of ncpx/ncps wonít last long say about 50-100 flight, and will get much shorter life time if fly back to back, in fact the very first motor on my ncps died just about two weeks after maiden. Xk110 is the most solid 1s micro I think, it is quick and the gyro is better than Blade stuffs, itís also much more powerful than ncps so need to be more cautious when fly indoor.

I can offer one perspective. I have the ncps and K110 and have seen the 150x flown. RL skill level is comfort with sport flying; getting orientations down. Working on funnels and piro flips in the sim, but not RL yet.

The K110 is larger and faster than the ncps and will need more space. With the BL motor and 2x the weight, it will do more damage to itself or anything it hits. It's nearly indestructible if flown in your back yard, but if you're smacking it into walls, you'll be replacing more blades and grips than on the ncps. On the other hand, if you have a little larger space, don't crash much, and want something more aggressive, the K110 is a great option. I prefer mine over the ncps, although I normally fly outdoors. For a gym, I would still take the K110. For my living room or a 2-car garage, I would go with the ncps.

I agree with you on the 150x. You could certainly fly it in a gym, but if you're just looking to do circuits and eights, maybe in all orientations, the K110 is a better option. In the yard, over grass or dirt, the 150x would be a lot of fun. (I have the Oxy 2 as my "serious" small heli.)

If you're flying in your house (living room, etc) Nano CPX. No competition. Not even a mCPX.

If you're flying in a gym or your backyard, any double brushless micro is generally fine (the T-REX 150X and XK110/V977 are the most popular for a reason).

Don't fly a brushless micro in your house. Really bad idea They move very fast.

As always question like this is relative: pilot's ability and flying style.
I've been regularly flying the k110 for winter 3d in one side of my garage, a 12 x 20 feet box. Owned the mcpx, cps and cpx's. Gave them all away for various reasons.

On the other hand, a local fellow flies his 150x basic 3d in a similar box. I don't own one.

My vote is for a K110. I've got three in rotation all flashed now with Blheli. Plus one NIB as spare. I'm now in the stage of this hobby where: more flying, less wrenching. With K110 that's what i found. My oldest K110 was bought a month or two after it's release. It's still on its original frame, board, esc and motor. Two of the servo's replaced months ago bcoz ive not done the servo saver mod before they got smoked. Have not replaced a servo since after doing the mod.

How much do i fly them? I got 25 lipos. Most days for winter i go through those once. Two or three days of the week, twice.

Thanks for your replies,

I think there is no alternative for the Nano Cps indoor flight.

I have a 2-car garage. I don't train very much on the simulator.

Our club rents the gym only ones per year.

I liked the Trex150 much better, but I crashed it too often indoors.

For my new Trex150x I don't take a risk.
