Not just hovering, either. Transitions from nose-in to flying circuits, to side-in, to touch-and-goes. All in one battery pack. The last time I flew I was still timidly doing tail-in and side-in hovers.
It was as if some neuron finally made a connection between the "heli" and "airplanes" part of my brain. My reflexes aren't right all the time, but the CX2 is stable enough that it gives me a chance to see and recover from the mistake before it gets expensive.
The Blade CX2 is a neat little heli, and probably the only thing I've ever bought on impulse that I don't regret.
Now we'll see how long it takes to get overconfident. "Pride cometh before the bloody expensive crash".
More winds on a given motor will increase torque and decrease Kv. I believe this is because the magnetic field with more turns is stronger (attracting/repelling magnets with greater force). Since the inductance is also greater, the field cannot expand/collapse as quickly which will limit how fast the motor can commutate.
Switching from wye to delta increases the Kv by a factor of 1.732 (the square root of 3).
Delta= higher Kv, wye = lower Kv. (thanks to B.L.E., from whom this is "borrowed".)
There's a lot of potential in the TX and RX from this kit.
Range may be limited - the TX RF board is postage-stamp sized, and it's hard to imagine that it's capable of putting out much power.
But it looks entirely reasonable that I could separate the reciver module from the ESC/BEC/mixer/gyro board from this kit and "go separates", making my Hummingbird Pro CP a 2.4GHz machine without a lot of hassle.
The CX2 wouldn't need to be grounded, either; any 72MHz receiver could be attached to the ESC/BEC/mixer/gyro to keep it flying.
