I am flying my stock nano with stock lipo. Very stable and awesome for indoor 3D. I have 2 and go back to back. Thank you HH!

How comparable is the difficulty of flying the nCP X vs that of the Ladybird? I'm especially interested in indoor flight.

Thanks

Did you use hot melt? I have never had a HG joint come off[/QUOTE]

No I just grabbed the little kiddie safe HG gun, my son uses. It was on hand. Mine is harder to get at. Must find the time to clean out the basement...sometime.

I would say it is a very kind of flying ... not sure if it even should be compared. As far as flying a CP heli however, it is probably the best idea you can have to learn it ...

So yes IMHO if you have a mcpx the nano is still well worth it but skill dependent you might have to still practice a bit with a pretend ceiling outside before flipping inside
Thanks! Sound like exactly what I "need" over the winter

A few weeks with the Nano will help your mCPX skills too.
Thanks!

Just installed Phoenix on my notebook.
Probably better for my nano to get more basics.
always hate the phoenix after a few minutes but it's the cheapest way to memorize stick inputs.

btw Why the didn't deliver a 230V supply for the charger.
Thought the Walkera 4#3 had the same connector but it didn't After about 15 charges the AAA batt died.
Tried to find a 6V adaptor but the one I had was nog stabilized and Almost thought I blew up my charger DMM gaved met 18Volts without load.
Centerhole was a bit bigger so probably I even didn't make contact with it.

Now it had rechargeable batteries. in it and I think it works.

I don't think a cp heli can be compared to a quad. The quad is wayyy more stable. The only thing it may help prepare you for is orientation. However, the nano is probably the best and most crash resistant cp if you are just starting out.

Man this thing is maybe a bit too awesome. It's definitely letting me get sloppy.

Tonight I had quite a few sessions of going crazy trying to even out the thrust by adjusting my pitch trim and then going nuts further by adjusting my pitch travel.

Much later, I finally noticed that I had broken the swash and the right arm was just hanging by a couple of strands of plastic. Still flew, upright/inverted, pitch pumps etc. until I noticed and replaced.

Just a reminder to check your stuff.

Last time I emailed HH about a bad motor for my MQX they told me that there is no warranty on little brushed motors, so I ordered V929 motors to replace it with. They are cheap, well, not the Blade ones.

Anyway, I HAVE A QUESTION, I have my Nano ordered but need a charge cable. What kind of battery does this take? I have multi charge cable for 1 3.7 mini eflight connector like used in the UMX 1S planes. Does this use a different connector? Is this what I need?

It says for Mcpx but I always thought mcpx uses same tiny 1S connector as on UMX planes

I got one of these and really like it. It will do ncpx and mcpx batteries.

Not sure if you can use this but here is the charge lead I made so that I could use my normal Lipo charger. All I did was simply open up the stock charger that comes with the Nano and remove the connector by clipping the wires at the board and soldering a deans ultra plug to the other end, really easy, the only down side is that I can't charge multiple packs at once but hey it's far better then the stock charger.
