Is the MCP X a great first CP heli, yes it is.
There are many post describing just how good the mcp X flies and have well it survives thum thumb flights into the ground. Learn to hit throttle hold before impact ,fly over grass and most crashes result in nothing more than a link or links poping off. I have advanced more in one month ,just over 100 flights with a mcp X than all the other helis I have owned / flown over the years. Reason is simple I spend time flyingthis one not repairing it and it does not cost a bunch of dollars to keep it in the air.
Only upgrade it needs is an extended tail boom and Blade at last came out with one for those who can not make their own. Part # BLH3602L.
Yes, this will be my first collective pitch heli.
I am coming from the micro E-Flite stuff.
I fly airplanes, 3D. I pick up quickly. I don't want to spend $200 if I am going to want the bigger 130X really quickly. But in this case, the Mcpx sounds like the way to start.
