Question

Hi, thinking to buy the new Cx3. Is anything positive about this machine for someone new to the sport? I am not sure what to buy to start out?

If youve never flown anything get yourself a good sim.

Problem about good sim will be, that he doesn't have a radio hell fly on yet. So getting a free sim to work is a problem, and a free sim is good for a start anyway.

I'd say: don't go for anything that's new on the market. Parts you will need. And it seems you break always the only part that's incompatible with older model first.

Hey congrads on BOTH new members of the family, just remember, you can always buy the CX3 body and put on the CX2. Had a buddy just bought a CX3, took it home, charged the battery, plugged it in and POOF, big clould of smoke and it was toast. From what he said, sounded like bad motors not turning like they were suspose to and fried the 4 in 1.

I flew one briefly. It wasn't mine so I didn't want to 'see what it could do' and risk busting someone else's bird. But it flew fine out of the box. Lifted straight up with no slew or yaw.

Just get an mCX. They dont break (often like the CX2/3) and they are a BLAST!! Cx2 / 3 are too big for inside (unless you own a large garage or gym) and too light for outside..

My 2 cents.

By the way, yes, I had a cx2 and mCX. Actually started with an mCX, bought a cx2, modded the crap out of it to "fly outside" which it didnt in ANY wind, then sold it and bought another mcX.

My flat is 22mē, 12mē room + 10mē kitchen. I fly Lama V3 in it (it's CX2/3 size) on a regular basis. I find precision flying more challenging than just trashing the hell out of a coaxial heli.

Heck, I even test-hovered a 450 indoors, but that was just test and I used the fact I can look from the kitchen into the room hiding behind a wall anyway, so, from the personal risk side, it was safer than doing it at 10 feet distance outside and it's why i did it indoors in the first place.

I like mine. I had a syma apache 3 channel b4 the cx3. I've been having a blast w/ my cx3.
In fact everytime I fly it I thank my gf for the killer bd present.

I don't think the cx2 is "too big for inside" either.

scoreshot, while my CX2 flies pretty well, it does not come close to being as stable as the one in your vid. Can you detail what you have done to it? Thanks.
