Overview

This helicopter will give transitioning pilots a more agile and capable collective pitch heli that will give them the confidence to master indoor aerobatics without the hesitance which comes with a larger outdoor only platform. Not to mention the cost makes it much more economical when learning.

It comes out of the box 100% factory built and equipped with a factory-installed Flybarless 3-in-1 Control Unit with Spektrum 2.4GHz DSM2 receiver, ESCs, and gyros. A ready-to-fly version with 2.4GHz DSM2 transmitter and a Bind-N-Fly version without transmitter, for those who already own a DSM2 aircraft transmitter, are available. Both variations include two 1S 200mAh 25c batteries, single port charger with AC adapter and a 1s High Current Ultra-Micro Battery Adapter Lead.

Using an integrated Flybarless system, the heli to gets up in the air without a mechanical flybar. The benefits of this system provides reduced drag on the main rotor head which results in more power, longer flight times, and provides the pilot the best of both worlds between stability and agility.

The Ready to Fly helicopter comes with the DX4e. This radio has been designed to be used exclusively with the mCP X and has specially incorporated software that allows you to switch back and forth between flight modes.

i am already single but im trying to save for my rego and im going to bail in july. So i need to save but they keep bringing out these great hobby vechiles. I just got a new rc boat and a mini swift as well. So they should keep me busy for a while. Although i need a rx for the mini swift (its in the mail) and a new esc for the boat (yet to order it).

This bloody hobby takes all my money but leaves me with the biggest smile. Just like walking out of a "special message" house.

wow thanks so much for the video. I did a search before and didnt find anything.

IT LOOKS GREAT. I want one now. I think this will be way better then the blade SR as its alot lighter and its flybar-less. Its also alot lighter so crashes wont be so dramatic on parts.

I would like some more info on the DX4E though, even though i will be using my dx6i.

Looks like i will have to order a bunch of HYP 180's now. I need them for the UMX beast anyways but they should work in this new MCP heli.

Doesn't it just. Me too.

From what I hear, cyclic servos are liable to break in a crash on fbl helis. From the link i812 posted:
