Of the tenergy, hyperion and lectrons what one is the best lipo?
Hyperion are good I use the spyder cells and like them. The Turnigy cells will last around 20-30 flights before they start to fade.

The hardware for the V2 is the same as the V1, so there's no reason it should vibrate more. It probably just needs some tuning.

but it occurs on almost all helis...and the hardware is not the same as they made changes/additions...if it was the same it wouldn't be v2.

in my eyes Blade mCP X v2 should be Blade mCP (no X) -1

Excellent! I'll bet you could tell the instant you picked up the radio and felt how nicely the stick gimbals moved.

i also no from experience from watching my friend fly (he is quite experienced) and the tail was shaking very hard and so was the body of the heli...there are many more complaints like this one...i think its a common issue.

Its worse than the v1 and it doesnt add any new fancy additions so i dont think its worth it to get the v2...thats why i got the v1

Theme of this story: Always do your resarch!!!

I have a v2 that hasn't exhibited any of those problems, nor have I seen widespread reports of them. I have been following all of the main mCPX threads since the v2 came out.

It sounds like either your friend doesn't know how to set up his heli, or it's a lemon and should be warranty'd.

If you can get a V1 cheap, then I'd say get it, but the V2 is serving me quite well and I have no real beef about tail holding issues, and definitely no wags, shakes, rattles, or rolls...

But who you gonna believe, 5 post guy, or 1600 post guy

false

And for the record, the changes are:
1) Improved battery (you can get better batteries for $5-15 anyway)
2) New tail rotor (you can buy it for $2 or $3)
3) New AS3X gyro sensors (now all 3 axis are on one chip, instead of split between 2. No one knows if this is for price, manufacturability, parts availability, or performance reasons.)
4) $0.01 O-rings pre-installed on the lower swash balls. (You can get 50 for $3 on the internet).

No hardware has been changed that would make it any more or less likely to shake while flying. It sounds like the main rotor spur gear wasn't seated properly, which happens very often after a crash (I check mine every time I pick it up).

I agree, it can get away fast, nothing like the simulator which pirouettes on the spot with no cyclic input.

You can get the cells from www.progressiverc.com in the states or if you are in Australia I have them locally.

Doesn't that make it a $0.06 O-ring? :-)

and for the record my v2 only vibrates when the white gear isn't all the way up, I check it after every battery change and every crash, it has been my only issue with it

I have 2 V1's and a V2 and two of my friends have V2's and none of our V2's have vibration issues. To me the V2 is much better. My V1's are parts donors now.

Did you read that thread? The guy complaining changed to the bullet blades and his vibe disappeared. Unbalanced main blades are an easy thing to fix.

You can do aerobatics with the bullet blades. They are not as tight as you can do with the flat blades, but loops, flips, rolls and inverted are certainly doable. I learned to do loops with the speed blades.
