I see mainly poeple with C05 with 9T and HP5S with 9T but how does the HP5S do with a 8T?

I'm getting an oversky 10A + HP5S 9T combo but I suspect it's too powerful. I'd like to be able to fly in normal mode in my living room without insane HS and battery consumption (I'm getting 5 min with my Hyperion 240mAh) and be able to release more power for mid 3D outside in ST1/2.
I'm pretty used with the stock motor feeling so I'd like to get about the same collective feeling
but with more punch.
What curves are you guys using?
No need for a 10amp.. Im using the hpo5s 9t pinion with a flashed 7amp esc In governer mode hyperion 550s, unless you have good collective management your going to put holes in the walls indoors with all that power lol

I just picket up a used mCPx to get my feet wet with helis. Been flying fixed wing planes for about 6 years. Looking forward to a new challenge!

First up is replacing the frame as the canopy mounting studs are broken off. I have the new frame in hand. Then it's time to program the DX7.

If it is just the front 2 pins I wouldn't bother & just use a piece of velcro on the fuse & the battery holder bottom to keep it on. If the rears are broken then yeah I would replace the frame. These things break pins like candy apparently though I got 10 months out of mine. Velcro is working well so far......

I did. A minor collision and it bent - major vibrations. I went back to the MH carbon shaft.

Haha I had 4 of them, 1 came on the heli. The one on the heli was ok but after a crash my swash was getting stuck on the aluminum. Tried to get it off and it was just too far gone to save. I then decided to test the strength of the shafts and they were just horrid. Picked up a new carbon fiber shaft today and a new swash and I am good as new. I wouldnt ever recommend anyone spend money on them. These were free and I just threw them out.

Aluminium shafts are a complete waste of money. Unless you have a passion for bend tube modelling.

I want to go brushless, I have almost all the microheli stuff like body, head, extended aluminum boom and frame, so heli is a bit heavier now, just curious if the HP05 with thesteve is worth $105, since I can get a ESC and C05m from Astroid for just $40, and break out my soldering iron and hope I don't miss.

You're welcome! Hopefully that works okay for you. I used a velcro strip that comes with one of the stock batteries on the inside of the fuse use & then just a "fluffy" piece LOL of velcro on the battery holder..

Well, guess Brushless is out of the question for now, my MCPx just went poof. Did a regular flight round, went to pop in a freshly charged battery, and smoke starting coming from the motherboard. Now the soldered joints by where the tail motor plugged in are burnt and just for the hell of it I plugged the battery back in and the tail motor just goes full throttle. So I guess I need to save up for a new 3-in-1. That's $70 I don't have, so looks like I'm grounded for a good 2 months. This sucks...

Any aussies on here that can fix 3-in-1's? I had a nasty encounter with a park bench and it seems the gyro chip has unseated. I get no radio interaction unless I press on the chip.

Google " Toaster oven reflow soldering"
My board was hit in a mid air and would not connect or bind.
The board was cracked and had a couple of broken traces. Fixed those but still would not work, so I assumed some of the solder joints had failed like yours.
Quick trip through the reflow oven and it has worked perfectly since.
You don't need the fancy temperature controllers, I just used the simplest instructions based on using the built in thermostat and a stop watch .
