Try these. They are from US Warehouse. Less shipping cost and much quicker. I buy and use these all the time for my own battery hook ups.

adaptor cable

Mike, thanks for your reply.
What I would like to buy is an adaptor cord that connects my V911 charger to my mcx battery. It would have a male connector on one end that connects to my mcx battery and a female connector on the other end that connects to my V911 charger. It's a long shot but I thought it was worth a try. Vince

Even better would be a USB port powered charger for my mcx batteries.

I've made my own patch cords for things that didn't exist or that I needed right away and couldn't wait on to have shipped. Pretty easy and only takes minutes if you've done any soldering before... just buy one of each thing if you don't already have them... cut them up and splice...

... just an option.

usb port charger

Yeah, I'll have to start looking for the 2 cords if no one knows of a usb powered charger for the mcx batteries. Tnx for the reply.

charger

Thanks for your efforts guys. I found an E-flite 3.7 volt wall charger on ebay for
$12.00 free shipping. A no brainer..Vince

I broke the flybar in the first 10 seconds of its first flight.

Power off immediately if you know you're about to hit something (for more reasons than just saving your flybar).

In the almost one whole year I've owned mine, other than skids, the flybar is the only thing I broke and only once. I lost sight of it when I flew it over and down behind some boxes so I goosed the throttle to get it back up to where I could see it... but it hit something down there on the way up... at close to full throttle... bad move... my own fault

I have had that happen once. Its just bad luck as it really has to hit just a certain way for it to break off.

On this heli, never broke more than a link. I can fly the heck out of this heli, if I do say so myself, lol. But with my MCPX I can hardly make it through a battery without breaking at least $5 worth of stuff.

annual inspection

It was time for my annual inspection of my MCX2. Removed the body, used a fine hair paint brush to clean the dust, cat hairs, etc off everything. Cleaned the crud from the gears. Opened up the Tri-flow and lubed all the bearings, rod ends. Put it back together and flew 3 batteries worth. It is now nice and smooooth again.
