I think you are getting better

Here is a vid I did yesterday of my stock, brushless and horrible Mad dog 180mAh 25c battery test (dont buy they are crap). I'll do a thrust test later today and then switch back to the 8T and do the same
Nano cpX stock and brushless flight (4 min 4 sec)

Nice flying. What D/R were you using inside your office?

...well finally after about 2 weeks I got my serviced nano back from hh. They fixed her right up and even replaced some of the parts I broke. She now flies like a champ with no issues and now back to more flyin!

Thanks again for the great kickass customer service at horizon hobby. I'll gladly spend more of my money on you guys.
peace bras

I was flying 100%R and 10%E all around with 100% pitch as well. Though I am going to up my expo on my elevator and rudder to 15% or so. I am a thumb flyer so for me horizontal interaction with vertical stick movement is amplified on this heli

Thanks for the heads up on those Maddog batteries, I agree, no where near 25c. What do you guys think about the Thunder Powers? At first I was a little disapointed in the punch but after cycling a couple times it's getting noticibly better.

Tail Adjustments

Using 100% D/R and 15% Expo on Elev/Aile. 100 D/R on Rudder and no Expo.

Idle-up pitch curve is Linear and Throttle cure is flat 100%

The tail doesn't hold that well, on hard left turns tail over swing to the right. What adjustments can I try?

This thing is very squirely, sometimes it'll overswing left/right

If the tail doesnt hold well then you either have a bad motor, vibrations or a bent tail blade.

Nice flying indeed!

Unfortunately I can't fly anymore... Seems the main motor died
The motor sops every now and then when I throttle up and it even cuts the board off.
Has anyone tried to fix his motor yet?

I am a thumb flyer also. I had to tighten the tension on both my horizontal sticks on my radio to the max and I find that helped me a lot. Left the vertical sticks soft. I am using 120 D/R no expo at the field. I was practicing inverted flying today and broke the tail boom on one of my birds . I will just replace it with 2mm solid CF like I did on the other one. Got a way to go before I can do indoor flying like you.

Great flight.
I can barely fly circles in my room with it. Okť my room without any stuff is about 2.5m2 or i need to fly around tables, TV or hanging lights.
No good idea for now.

I almost never fly nose-in but this gives me an opportunity to get better with slow corners and nose in hovers.

Weather is terrible at the moment so Didn't try another loop.
And will try inverted flight soon. But not in my living room.

My goal is fly it whole winter to learn and fly my hk500 much better next season.

Got my new maingear on it. Hopefully this one lives longer. Ordered two but just got one and now they are out of stock :S

Without digging through all 90+ pages of this thread, what other helicopters share the Nano skids?

Helidirect lists it as msr/msrx/nano, but I have an MSRX sitting right here and the skids absolutely do not fit, they're significantly longer between the mounting pins.
