I know the old 5 channel controller for the CX-2 has the knob on it that would be perfect, or sell it as a BNF for those that already have a 5 channel or more controller.

How cool would that be!

Yea, just like that one, but now make the rotors tilt to transition to flight mode. It may be that the rotors should only tilt 30 or 45 degrees so the transition stays within control, but that would be awesome to see!

Video is on Horizon Hobby web page. Yes 1 servo, Blade speed variation with the new 5in1 controls speed and turns servo controls roll. Looks like the real bird in take off and flight. The yellow Canadian rescue design is a copy of the real one. I hope they come out with the US Navy rescue look.

I really like that trim scheme. For once, it will be different than the US schemes. There are other countries that flies helis

I just bought an MSR and I already have the CX2, MCX and UM Sukhoi and P-51. My GF will definitely go crazy if I buy anything else. But that little tandem is trying to get my attention...and an osprey you say ? Oh the look on her face...

The guys that design the products fly them too. I don't think they are trying to pull anything over on us. If they were, they would have edited out the part where the Tandem drops on the floor. That was funny. Notice he said the battery died.

Not to belabor the point (and none of this is a shot at HH - great guys), but I also bought a Sukhoi, and did NOT do any mods, and could not fly it like that, which was my point.

Jim, point taken. I could not fly it well "out of the box."

Another thing of humor to note: in the video after Mark gives the Tx to Jim after they go to the atrium, the camera zooms in on the Tx and Jim is stick-banging like he's flying a Blade 400 in 3D............LOL; and the cute chick is just kinda strolling along. I'd have to say that with this many helis, these would be indicative of the release version of the heli. Dang it, though, I'm gonna have trouble sneaking $179.99 past my CFO.

They are still showing late December, but no date yet, so we can only hope.

This heli looks very interesting, however. eflite is expensive..........I currently have the msr, mcx and modified cx2 and cx3. Not cheap compared to walkera, esky or nine eagles. But, spektrum is great and so is horizons customer service - i have called many. many times and seen satisfied with their customer support!

The spektrum compatibility is one of the primary interest with these machines. I got one of the first DX7 and since no 2,4 Ghz system is interchangeable, I am a captive of HH since I don't want multiple radios lying around...Of course, I also love their little helis... (got the MCX, CX2 and MSR plus UM P-51 and sukhoi)

Hey fellow Canadain; I have a brand new P51 Stang that I haven't flown yet! Is your cx2 stock?

On the CX2 I put the flyRc rive sud motors. They seem to make less noise than the stock ones. I also had their blade grips, didn't like em. It is better to have the flites since the parts are everywhere. I bought the blackhawk and JetRanger canopies. Like them a lot.

You'll love the UM Mustang, I just flew it at the gymnasium this PM and it is very stable, half throttle flyer. You can also fly it outside but wait til the summer come back. If it is too cold, the battery freezes and you can say goodby to power.

Should try to find a way to isolate the battery from the prop draft. Here is a vid from the Mustang in the gym (and some other machines
