I won one of these about 2 months ago..have had about 70+ flights on it..flies teriffic....have crashed it and no real damage but popped links and the main shaft getting pushed up..pop it back in place..replace the link and back to good. I have the blade recall blade grips..but no failures to date. It's making me a better heli pilot..love it...

Then buy the batteries - mostly it is only possible to put 3 batteries for buddy price 1.95 into the cart. (After trying probably 100 times in different versions, I finally managed to buy 15 - before I made 3 orders 3 batteries, because I did not manage it).
Beware - the batteries are already out of stock, backorder.
I have to wait for my 15, too - but my 3 x 3 have been sent this morning.

If you buy an item at HK, many items show the "buddy code active" sign after the reviews.
After having bought the items for normal price (and paid), you can see (after a while) signs for buddy codes after the items in your order.
You have to share the code with other users (http://hk.rc-international.info/swarm or the Hobby King swarm sale thread in this forum).
If they use your code, you will get bonus points (money for next order) for the items you have bought, so you get the money for your next order.

Walter
Thank you

Do the B grips just not come off or do they actually fly better?

The first part of your question... Some may say the B grips fly better...but I didn't notice much difference, methinks most people felt the same.....? They're just redesigned so the blade doesn't fly off if the bearing fails.


What a trip coming in from a morning of all-out outdoor pattern fixed wing flying, then grabbing the MCPx for a few living room flights...lol! Neat how the human brain can easily "switch gears" like that...

Hi Guys,
Every time a crash I find the main gear has twisted on the main shaft. The flat spot is no longer on the flat spot of the main shaft. I find that I lose power at that point. I guess this is due to the extra pressure on the motor. Do you guys think I should change the main shaft out. It might be getting worn out?

Yes, absolutely. The gear plastic is softer than the CF shaft and thusly gets "rounded out", no longer seating cleanly on the shaft.

Happens from too many crashes, wear and tear kinda thang. The more crashes, the more rounded out it gets. When I was first learning the MCPx mine did the same. Tossed it for a new one.

My b sets were a lot tighter so for me they flew much better and are really snappy.

I had to pull the landing gear off to get that kind of fat fingered access to push the gear back up. The flats are lined up that was never the problem. I had to re-bind a few times to get the pitch back to center holding the left rudder until the blue light lit solid was the key for me. Letting it go before that threw it off.

There's no logical reason why they should fly any better, unless your old one was worn or bent.

Oddly enough, there hasn't been a single report of bearing failure since the B grips were released, and there's no obvious reason for that either (unless it was caused by a bad batch of bearings)
