Stability wise, how does this compare with a coax? Is it alot harder to control. If Im a really good Mcx pilot, could I fly this?

In short,no.It would not be a good choice for a next heli,at all.

wow, I remember when I was constantly searching the net for the mcp, then I got out of helis for a while, but now, I am definitely going to re-imerse. I am really wondering about the stability of the heli. On the website, they do not brag about the stability of it other than that it is flybar-less and has a 3-axis gyro. I am curious as to how it will handle when crashed. Unlike the other heli vids, they do not have one of it crashing and picking it up to fly again. It is definitely not a beginner package, but they do offer an RTF which suggests that you do not need to be an advanced flyer to fly it or do you need to have the ability to adjust D/R. I am very excited, but I am skeptical.

Yeah it is.I believe I'm going to have to get a Spektrum or JR to make the best use of it.But I really wanted one anyway so I can fly a few of the new micro planes.

It should be fun. Looks kinda fast though. I hope that's just the marketing department and not the way you have to fly it. Sometimes these little ones can be twitchy. They found a good balance with the mSR, let's see how this turns out.

New Blade 450 looks interesting too.

Oy. Just when I'd settled on SR120 next, they throw this into the mix. For $30 more.

Now, the last flybarless that came out, I assumed it had a 3-axis gyro. But it didn't. And nowhere in the specs or blurbs does it say "3-axis gyro", which it should if that's what they're selling, cuz that's a feature. It just says 'flybarless controller'. What the Florida does that mean?

Anyone care to speculate whether MCPX or SR120 would fare better in 2-5mph wind? Bigger is usually better in wind, but so is CP vs. FP.

And speaking of blurbs, who exactly is going to be flying inverted in their living room?

2-5mph is no sweat for the SR120.
