I have flown 550 class helis all the way down to the mSr but when I got my hands on the V1 mcpX last spring I sold everything else and it's all I fly now. I am a sport flyer and don't get much chance to go to flying field so I need something small that won't bother neighbors. My only complaint about my mcpX is it has no power at 7000ft and it gets really small quickly on speed runs up and down my street. When I saw the 130x I was thinking it would fit my needs perfect. The 300 looks sweet, but to me it looks loud and would result in crash damage similar to a Trex 250 or 450 size bird. The 130x appears to resemble an mcpX and with lighter mass might survive better. I have only crashed my mcpX once in a whole year and had no parts to replace. I'm going to watch this one closely!
