Question
How to get more forward speed MCX?

Never flown a heli so I picked up the Eflite MCX. Its so easy to fly but its forward speed is so slow. Any way to speed it up? Moving backwarss is about 2-3x faster.

You can shorten the pitch control servo link a couple turns, but it will start you chasing settings for a while. Anything you want to know about these has been written in a couple threads here. Do an advanced search of this forum for mcx, and just search in titles. There is a standard one and a mod one.

Put some weight in the nose. These FP coaxials are not designed to go very fast, so you are just working your way up to a crash.
