Official AXE CPv3 thread. Heli-Max.

I would like to organize this thread so people can have a quick reference to some important information on the CPv3.

Date purchased and condition- Dec 2009, New.

Problem with it- While attempting to get it to hover (first 10 minutes of use) the tail motor burnt out causing the ESC/Mixer to burn out also.

Usefull info- The parts list in the manual has the wrong part numbers for both the ESC/Mixer, and the Rear tail motor. This caused extended downtime....

The correct part number for the Tail Motor is HMXE9582, and
For the ESC Mixer is ??? Will add later.

Mods with description of why it was done, and the effect it has.-
I'll be installing a GY240 Gyro to make it more controllable. This bird is very twitchey. Later I might consider a tail upgrade, and better electronics.

Pics will be posted soon!






Please refrain from cluttering it up with comments or discussions.

At the time OP started this thread it was doomed to die. He must have been living in cave, because the flaws with this model were already well known. It had no redeeming qualities other than it was more stable than other 300 size helis and that was because it was really overweight.

It's receiver is really awful, so that's the first thing that needs upgrading. The motors are the next things, they don't last at all. The tail doesn't hold very well, either.
