Tower...buy a bunch and use your Tower Savers Club discount..... I just bought 12 servos and three ESCs, and with the discount for buying multiple servos and the saver club, I saved $100.00

Guess who's getting to train in a full motion 747 Sim tomorrow? This guy I'll take pics and some video for y'all. It's one of Southwest's sims.

I know there are a few heli guys around here... I recently picked up the new Blade Nano CPx and I'm loving it. You should consider getting this thing. It's virtually indestructible and it's a great learning platform...

Today I was working on inverted circuits. This thing lets me practice with confidence.

So do you think this one is better, more Stable than the mCPX?

Are the Batts same type, just half the value at 150mAh? (haven't looked) for weight reduction?

If not buying local... for the "In my hand today" factor, and for supporting your local businesses...
I've been looking at Chief Aircraft, lately, for Hitec servos, at least.
Hard to find better deals, and I've had good luck the couple times I've ordered from them.

I personally think its way better than the mCPx because it's only marginally smaller but it's so dang light that it's nearly impossible to break! The tail also holds no matter how hard you try to make it blow out. AND... You can dial down the pitch and rates for excellent indoor flying fun. I could fly the mCPx inside but I was always nervous became if I were to hit something there was gonna be damage. Not with this little guy.

And it's only $150 for the BNF and that comes with two 150mah batts. I bought three more and I'm good.

Thanks man. I just kinda dabble with helis. I'm much more note interested in planes. I have this one and the 130x and between those two I'm thrilled. I might get a 500 sized heli one day but for now this scratches my itch just fine!

If its Southwest, it's probably a 737 sim. That is the only aircraft they fly. Have a great time.

I get to fly the sim every six months at my job. Embraer 170

I can't wait...is it May yet...
Not a bad price, IMO. What are you doing for pick up? Is there a Cruise America near Knoxville. I don't think they have one in Louisville.
