Picked up one last night for $15 at that price it is worth it I am pleased except for rudder on the right stick I wanted to use this to teach my kids to fly and this will give them wrong inputs as they move up and will have to relearn spinning as they call it

I was thinking about buying one of these at a store today, brand new for $45. I didn't because it was three channel, and I have an LS-222 that I haven't broke yet. I really didn't like the way it looked. Is it just me, or are these ones in particular a much lower grade of coaxial gyro helicopters?

This product IS an mCX2, but with the radio of a Scout CX, give or take. All std. BLADE issue. Scale detail isn't rigorous, but kinda cool. (I kit-bashed this canopy onto my nano CP X, with excellent results.)

I like the look of that CP X, but I am a super noob. It being a flybarless helicopter has pretty much made sure I probably won't be able to buy something like it for a while. It is also 160 bucks according to blade (wow. Expensive!) Have you ever flown the blade SR? How long did it take you to get proficient at flying flybarless?

I mean I should say proficient enough to fly flybarless.

I had a lot of fixed wing experience before trying helis; but my path was CX to 45 degree flybar fixed pitch (mSR, like the 120 SR), then flybarless collective pitch. It took me about a year.

I hear the SR is not in the same class as BLADE's newer CP helis. If strapped for cash, the mCP X v2 is quite a good deal. The nano CP X or mCP X BL (brushless) are more crash-worthy, especially over grass. I would definitely get comfortable with a quad, or the 120 SR or mSR, before moving up to CP or flybarless.

I think that settles it then, more than one person has told me that 120 SR is a good choice, so that will probably be my next buy very shortly.

It is NOT an MCX2. The electronics are totally different. Only 1 servo and 3 channel, and it will NOT bind with a DX6i or higher or the stock mcx radio.It is the same as the scout. It is NOT DSM2 compatible.

I love this helicopter to bits.

I removed the 5-in-1 and put in an Mcx2 5-in-1.
It's a very clean install. Now it can fly 4-channels and has lights.

Earlier poster was right, you have to trim a bit off the skids for the mcx2 5-in-1 to fit correctly but it's a clean trim if you use a hobby clipper.
Also, I highly recommend putting a canopy grommet on each of the skid tabs that are inserted into the upper plastic mainframe. This will ensure that there is adequate clearance for the 5-in-1 because trimming the skids alone may not do the perfect job.
