Finally got my Nano CPx going after a bit of a struggle. I purchased one at my LHS, which was DOA, it wouldn't bind. Sent it back to Horizon (I'm in Canada, they're in the States) who fixed it up and sent it back. Took a bit of time - a week to get there, a week at Horizon, a week and a bit to get here. To add insult to injury, the package wasn't marked as a warranty return when they sent it to me so I had to shell out a few bucks to the postie for customs.
Sigh. At least Horizon took care of the issue.
Now that's all behind me, I'm loving this little helicopter! I had an FBL100 which flew very well, this is at least as good. Sure takes a beating! It's a bit cool here now so outdoor flights are short as the battery cools down, but everything works well enough. I even managed to get it inverted in my small front room practice zone and land on the ceiling!
Here's my take on this model:
