So I got into this whole FPV thing because of the fire sale with the FPV Vapor. I bought a few and I am loving my Nano QX again. I have a surplus of 3 channel bricks....then an idea came to me at work....

ELEVON only needs 3 channels if you omit the DX9 assigned the rudder to the aileron, viola! setup you have a 3 channel elevon Brick!!!!

thanks DX9!....what to make.....


Nano QX and Nano QX FPV have different boards!...newer Nano QXs has the new boards

-Feathering shaft
-Tail Shaft
-Main Shaft
-Torque Tube
-Landing gear
-servo gears
-Tail Blades

lesson just buy Helis new...LOL

Then procedeed to do some upgrades on the 180CFX
-Lynx Goblin Kit (7/10 due to fit)
-Lynx Clutch TT (10/10 smooth)
-Micro Heli LG (10/10, I like the CF reinforment)
-Micro Heli Carbon Fiber Tail Boom

I also got new Blade CF main blades but decided to try stock first my MCPX BL has a partner pretending to be a Goblin

So I have been playing too much Ps4....i bought my nephew Proto x. I got to fly it and I wanted something smaller than my Nano QX.

I was going to buy one on Monday but they were out. Ended up leaving the LHS with a Kodo Dromida...great flyer

I went back to give my review on the Kodo and pickup my Proto but they were still out.

The LHS owner hands me the Faze....I didn't want to pay more but hey it's Horizon...

I am glad I got the Faze instead of the Proto X....this guy has more LEDs and flies so much better. I can not believe how much I like this little thing after 2 flights.

*i don't work for HH, just a loyal customer

I had a bright idea, recycle one of my old faulty flashlights.

The problem, I have burnt out LEDs...wish I used a prefect one....I guess that will be version II.

9 LED flashlight from Harbor Freight powered by a 1 cell lipo on a 200QX

....makes me want to walk around in the dark since I have a flying flashlight

I just had one of my best solo heli session. too cool!!!

Cheers and Happy Flying!

Yay! it's a good day, new heli and new fancy charger.

Dual 200 watt
USB port
Ir capability

after setting up my new 300x it was too late to fly at my field. Test hover in the carport was a carbon blades for this guy and she will remain bone stock.

300CFX has a bad bearing on the tail assembly....
450X has a 1 way bearing that is making the clicking sound...
130X RedBull needs new Torque Tubes....

USPS has my parts but won't arrive until Monday no 450x or 130x action this weekend

.......argh! at least I saw the problem with my CFX before I flew again this afternoon...the tail shaft is only supported by one bearing, Im glad I didn't have any incidents this morning. I have to order the bearing or get the new aluminum tail housing while I am at it.

I guess its the Habu and Wildcat out at the field tomorrow

okay that's the last time I am using preset trims from the aileron for my habu was I really hope I don't have to switch tx soon...I should have kept my dx7s...that thing was spot on to my preference

been really stressful at work....I needed to just fly...

almost crashed the BL....gave positive pitch when I was inverted ....whew close call

this was a great solo session!

3 BL batts
2 Habu

I got my new canopy on my 300CFX thanks to Robins Hobby in Glendale...they made new holes for my canopy since the 300x canopy doesn't fit on the CfX.

Crashed and repaired my MCPX Goblin....flies just like new! I am getting more risky with my stunts but the pay offs are worth the inevitable repairs

been able to flip the Gobin BL like nothing but too scared to flip the 450 and 300 lately

So I have been having car problems....I needed something that would cheer me I contacted Adam from and now I have completed my MCPX BL DFC-Goblin-

she's actually more fun to fly than to admire...the fuse is made of a types reinforced material...not fiberglass

The BL Goblin flies reall well...once I get her out on the flying field I will report on how she does inverted. Sport flying so fur has been really entertaining! c'mon she's a beauty!

Cheers!...Continue Reading
