Any chance you can share a link to the motor?

will only use the CW-version (but they are shipped as a pair CW & CCW). Don't know whether these are compatible with the nano but for 3,5 Euro I will roll the dice and take the gamble

Let me know how it goes! I couldn’t remove the pinion from my old motor using a lighter, so I’d like to know how you do that and if the motor works.

I've been able to remove pinions from motors using a needle-point tweezers, sort of like how you use a pickle fork to spread ball joints in a car.

Pickle fork? Ball joints? Car?

You're making these phrases up!

I have several old motors.. guess I could give it a try and see what all the fuss is about.

I am pretty sure that cars have ball joints and a "pickle fork" is used to separate the ball joints.

Finally got around to painting my canopy. It really pops in the shady areas now, making it a lot easier to see for my old eyes.

Love the scheme, rob. Well done!! I’m a fan of bright color with simple, dark contrast.

Thanks so much xoexoe! I think I will clear it too. I really would like to get an airbrush and paint another with orange. I painted it with rattle cans and it just seemed they were putting out to much material.

Well after a hard crash I swapped everything over to a new main frame and got 6 more batteries ran through her. I love rebuilding the hell just as much as flying it

Awhile ago I ordered Microheli blade grips and Microheli rotor hub. Received the parts yesterday. Installed both items this morning and went out for a testflight this afternoon...

Boy oh boy, does this thing fly well!!

My setup:
stock CPS
Microheli swashplate with anti rotation holder
Microlheli blade grips
Microheli rotor hub

My inverted hover is I'm able to flip the bird and keep it in a stable hover each time...I'm now trying to make my first "8" figure

Grips and hub made a difference, eh? Nice to hear!

Did you notice a decrease in heli ability to quickly accelerate upward? Feel heavier?

Ran about 8 batteries through my CPS today, just circuits and hovering around. I'm still really new to the hobby but I love flying the little thing around. Any suggestions for my next step up, I was thinking a 130s next when I can finally do some 3d

A month ago my stock motor of my cps decreased in power a lot... it came to the point I would have it at full throttle and it hovered 10 cm above the ground.

I ordered a new Horizon Hobby motor and guess what... same thing is happening.

In the mean time I ordered 2 (cheap*ss) motors from aliexpess (they finally arrived) and I'm currently waiting for my pinions to be delivered.

I really like this bird, so I ordered a second one and now I'm thinking to install the brushless kit into my first nano cps

130s is a very nice heli, you also might consider the 230s
I have them both and you can't go wrong with either of them

grips and hub made a 'little' difference, the most noticable upgrade is the metal swashplate Microheli.

I'm struggling with my stockmotor again....I'm considering to make it brushless.

In addition to the motor issues, it's important to make sure your main gear did not slip down on the main shaft. With your tx off, plugging in a battery should send the blades to zero pitch. Anything else means you have some adjusting to do.

I can confirm motors in the link do work with nano CPS
I didn't remove the pinion from the original HH motor, instead I bought 10 new pinions and installed one on the new ali-express motor.

So far so good
