No shakes with my bullet blades though..

the pink kbdd's fly simular to the bullets atleast for me it seams that way..

has anyone tried the walkera v100d08 blades yet? they fly pretty well kinda like the bullets but half the $ lol
Yeah I'm talking about an ho05 with blheli governed esc.
I think it's a combination of the heavier 120 sr boom/motor, high headspeed, lighter blades, and swash leveling.

I re leveled my swash and is a bit better. no big deal you only notice it when hovering. I'll try bullets and see if it helps.

Now I can't fly my mCPx for 5-7 days Not worth tearing all three servos apart, I'll just wait for the DeoxIT
my can came in today, I sprayed a shot into each servo slider, dabbed up the rest with a cotton swab. the jitters are gone, one shot.....very cool

thanks for the suggestion

Well if it works for you fine but a brushed mCPX will bog extremely bad with 100% pitch if you have zero pith at mid, stick as it should be.

Being hard headed I tried 100% and then 90 then 80 then 75 then 70% and I finaly got to the point where it was not bogging severely. If yo bog it down with excessive pitch then you loose lift no matter how much pitch you have.

UI have increased pithch to 73% now that I am running BL but I know have a lot more power than stock.

To replace the stock power lead from the board to the battery you can use the extension that they sell for the Celectra battery charger. Just remove the small end that connects to the charger and solder the leads into the PCB.

Good Luck, Don

The head and tail speed will drop, when this happens you may lose control of the tail until the speed picks back up again, the heli may also start to spin until the tail can pick up enough speed to hold the heli stable.

Ok, so where is the power coming ffrom to fly hard 3D for all of you experienced pilots?

At 75% pitch, it is taking 90-100% just to keep it in a hover much less loop, roll........

BTW, I am using Hyperion 250mah 25C packs, which I was told will add some punch.

That's where throttle management comes in to play. With the brushed motors it is all about smooth fluid movements and finesse, if you are lucky enough to have a brushless setup then you can do 3D simply by brute force and relying on the power of the motor. You won't ever see moves like tic toks that require a lot of power from the motor if you have the brushed motor simply because it will bog down too much, but you can still do piro flips, rainbows and other 3D moves as long as you don't bog the motor down.

It took me a long time to realize that my heli's weren't under powered, I was just banging the sticks around too much as opposed to using smaller more precise movements.

Hmmm..... So much for the promo videos that were on the stock brushed setup.

Either way, I think I made the right decision going with this heli rather than my first CP being a 500 or 600.

Although my club guys have a fuel Hirobo 600 RTF wating to sell me at 50% cost when I am ready.

Alot of the veteran Heli guys say you should learn on a big Heli, but my wallet begs to differ

I used to be a huge proponent of buying the largest heli you can afford because they were the easiest to learn on but technology has changed so much in the last couple of years that Eflite and Walkera have made some very nice micro CP helis that even a beginner can learn on and fly.

Plus a cheap crash on my Furion 6 is about $75. With the exception of a canopy I still haven't paid any money out to replace any damaged parts on my mCP X and that's after dozens of crashes.

Something is wrong. You shouldn't need that much throttle to hover.
