yeah it has vibes..I'll look into it today. Haven't notice it do anything to flight characteristics though.
I haven't even tried to fly scale yet but out of all my crashes the heli is looking good! I hit thold the moment I feel it going which always made the mcpx last and last
Mine also flies fine. I was able to reduce the tail vibs by playing with the tightness of the rotor blades and feathering shaft bolt tightness. I'm going to replace the feathering shaft if I can get my hands on one. If not, I may buy another nano as a backup.

Yep same skids...while I dont think they are the best looking they seem to be quite durable..if you crash well
I am not too concerned about using double mAh batteries on this micro, if i wanted a high disk loading I would buy another mcpx. Instead I would like to go the opposite way to keep this as light as I can so it flies well inside and walls and floors dont hurt it too much.

Use google chrome it will auto translate

I havent messed with anything other than pitch yet but I did think the blades for how light they are seemed quite loose

I've heard of people putting on mCPX skids and apparently they fit. I'll have a look as to what other skids we can possibly put on.

Check your feathering shaft if you have vibration issues. Either it's bent, or the nut has worked itself loose.

It's suggest you put a dab of white glue or rubber cement to help keep the nut in place.

Heads up- those bars on the upper left corner are signal strength- just like a cell phone. AFAIK that's the only telemetry function.

So, you are saying the receiver signal strength telemetry works? Have you checked it?

Just got back from the LHS, they got them in this morning. Luckily I set everything up right there in the store, first one out of the box had a lot of negative pitch at the center point, went to adjust the links and found that the balls on the swash on 2/3 servos were bend upwards at about a 30 degree angle. Pretty sure that's where the negative pitch was coming from. Opened another one and bound it, zero degrees at center stick and the balls are all straight out at 45 degrees level with the swash. Keep an eye on this if you are buying one, you can see pretty easily if the balls are straight or angled up just by looking at the swash!

Even with pitch at zero at midpoint, this still doesn't feel like it has a ton of power when doing pitch pumps. What are others finding? Not sure how they do tic toc etc. with this little pitch authority...

Yep. An easy way is unplug the heli with the transmitter on. All the bars will disappear.

Different brick but same concept: I've had my carbon cub so far out that only two bars were showing.

The motor needs to break in. Mine got stronger after about 15-20 short flights.
