weighted blades are more stable, the kdbd are a tad thinner where they meat the grips and the metal head is tighter fitting

I thought I remember back when this first came out that everyone was saying keep the blades as loose as possible...I guess if they are thinner though, that it would created bad "Tracking" with less responsivness...it might present itself in almost a "lag"....I think you're right...

i find when i tighten my blades regardless if it is not equally loosened then there will be shakes, if they are tight at the screw there will be shakes

I really want a stock brushed mcpx with the extended TUBE 140mm with kbdd tail blades for doing 3d practice. I've got too much money invested in my hotrod mcpx to do 3d now HAHA

C05 / hp05 (in transit)
MicroHeli 140mm Boom w/ motor mount and vertical fin
MicroHeli Swash (in transit)
Kbdd orange main and tail rotors
MIA Phantom Kit
Delrin Main Gears
xp7a / the steve

THINKING OF:
2s battery setup once I know how to do it safely
Brushless tail

Once I know how to do the above I'm going for it!
NOW thats all bling baby, nothin but the brushless is necesary!

STU - I know you got a bone stock mcpx you wanna sell me.

If you make a Y-harness, it's very easy. One female connector for each battery and one male connector to the heli. Solder both white wires from the battery end connectors to the appropriate white lead "to heli" pin and both black wires to the other and use heat shrink. Presto...you've got a parallel harness and you can run two batteries. Just have to decide how you're going to mount them...

I think he means 2 cells in series, or 7.4 volts nominal.

2S setups need a motor with around half the KV, and a 3 amp diode between the BEC output of the ESC and the MCPx main board to drop the 5 volts down to 4.3 or so. I may try a 2S setup soon with a Phoenix 10 just to have a governer, and run a 2s hyperion 180 pack.

Would be nice to have 5400 RPM for the entire flight with no bogging

do you know some motors offhand that are in that category, and is that diode a special type? Just a black 3 amp diode with a silver band on the end? .. im not too up on how diodes function, i didnt know they dropped voltage

Any 3 amp Diode will work. There is a .7 volt drop through the diode. Its a proven method for dropping BEC voltage down to 1S voltage when running a 2 cell brushless setup on the AR6400 in UM planes.

flew my kbdd mains today with my hyperion battery the battery is great 4 mins and only used 120mah out of it. the blades, well there okay but i was expecting much better flight. i think the stock mains fly a lil better but will give some more flights to decide for sure
