But thanks for the heads up on the Ember 2's weakness.

If you go slow, the Champ can handle that limited space, it won't be quite as relaxing as it is in larger more wide open spaces however.

I just figured this was a coaxial thing but figured id ask anyways.

Done this right out of the box does it after its HUGE crash and the repairs (ABOUT AS BAD AS IT GETS WAS FUNNY AS HELL). And does it still with the advanced swash settings.

Oh and the crash for those curious. I was trying to fly it threw the rafters at work on a bet (40ft ceilings). And well i just nicked the one blade and it bounced off and lost a bit of altitude right into the ceiling fan witch then flug the poor bird into the steal pole in the center of the building were it dropped from the sky (almsot the full 40') into a thankfully mostly empty wast oil bucket. But to the birds credit the only damage was a broken upper blades and the inner shaft mounting point for the upper blades.

Now, that's funny; I don't care who you are

E-Flite Blade MCX 2 RTF NEW

brand-new still in box from the factory.

This was sent to me as a replacement but I am over helicopters now so for sale it is. I also have every single spare part motors 5IN1 ESC mainframe screws the lot enough parts to build another chopper excluding helicopter body. I also have a five port charger that I bought extra and also a carbon fibre tail boom and seven brand-new batteries. all parts are still in the original packets.

I am open to offers best offer for the lot.

Only catch is buyer will have two pay postage from New Zealand. It cost me $38 New Zealand to post the last one to Chicago.

- a couple of rudder trim clicks one way or another during flight is normal
How do you know where neutral trim is on the RTF Tx?

On each trim button you can hear a tone. When you hear the "long tone" it means you are centered. Try it on each button. Go up one or two clicks then come back down one or two clicks. You will hear the "long" tone."

Inverted flight?

Has anyone been bored enough to build an inverted version? Seems like all you would have to do is reverse the polarity of the motors and flip the blades upside down ...

A video of an inverted mCX2 would get people scratching their heads ...

Just use your fingers. they will snap right off. you do have to pull rather hard if you have never had them off before. Just put one finger on the bottom of the ball and the other overtop the top of the link and then pull the link down and POP, off it will come. Like I said, it will take some force but it should not hurt anything.

Joined the MCX2 club. My first helicopter. I am slowly reading this thread, up to post #701.

When I first flew it, the controlly bits up top that make it go forward & backwards were bound against the body panels. (side to side bit moved freely). I had to crash it a few times to figure out why it wouldn't go fwd/reverse.

Now that that is taken care of, it is one neat little helicopter.

It came with a 120mAh 14C batt, but I already have several 150mAh 12C batts and fly it most with those. I'll let the motors cool off before flying it with a fresh batt and I'll let used batts cool off before charging.

Mine generally goes forward with no or little leftward drift and it won;t "death wobble."

This is a great addition that allows flight in my small home.

Sounds like you are on your way! It is a nice little heli, but it's a gateway drug!
