Yes, after being completely humbled by the mcpx, there's something there I can actually fly.

wow, I got my mcpx stuck in a tree. It really shows how much I like this heli because I used a ladder to get up in the tree and then climbed as high as I could and threw stuff at it until I got lucky and knocked it down. In hindsight I am way to old to be climbing trees. I got to find a new place to fly, my back yard trees have claimed too many helis. While I was up there I reclaimed a v911 but the board and who knows what else is shot, oh well, my mcpx is fine

Greg, the last time I was in a tree it was for a foam plane. I was in a park and had to stand on top of my Honda to get to the lowest branch, then climb from there. All that doesn't sound too bad, but I'm 62 and 6'2"/300lbs.! The wire landing gear had gotten tangled in a branch, required a lot of shaking to get it loose, but was able to manage that. Recovered with no damage as well.

I can identify with what you're saying!

EJ1208 - there are some brands of 300mah with higher discharge that will fit the stock LG/battery holder

The best thing about this model is after you break a few of the main linkages (dog bones) the ball links gets worn a little and future crashes only pop off the dog bones. I somehow made it 30+ flights in a gym without breaking anything but the canopy. That includes (inverted into the ceiling, wrapped up in a college school banner, and rebounding off a basketball hoop)

I'm a new mCPx-v2 owner and haven't been able to get outside to fly. Just ordered a Nano to fly inside. Keeping the v2 for outside. Can't wait for summer.

The time I did it most spectacularly was to retrieve a paracopter. Needed to reach the closest house to ask for a ladder, than wired a straight tree branch on top of an umbrella I had in my car, and was finally able to retrieve the paracopter with just a couple of lines damaged. Quicly fixed the next day.

(sorry for slightly OT)

I'm really confused by my mcpx/dx4e. I've had an intermittent problem where, after binding, as the power comes up the swash pivots to the back of the heli and the elevator servo goes to its lowest point. If I was trying to take off with it the heli would pivot up and back to the right and roll over. I thought I had a picture of it but I'm not finding it. I swapped 2 servos to be sure it wasn't just a bad servo but nothing changed. I took it to a local field a couple weeks ago and David from this board flew it with his dx6i and it flew pretty well. There were some power problems, but I found a broken wire and fixed it. I flew it for about 2 weeks and then last weekend the swash problem came back. Yesterday I took it to a local hobby store and showed it to the guy there. Nothing we tried made any change at all. I'd resigned myself to needing a new 3n1 board. However, just as I was about to leave, he brought over his dx7, bound the heli to it, and flew it. It flew fine. So, I assumed the Transmitter was bad. Today, for the heck of it, I put a battery in it, bound it to the dx4e and everything's fine again. I just went downstairs and flew all 6 batteries in the lobby with nary a glitch. Well, the feathering shaft is bent so there's a nasty vibration I need to fix. It bugs me to not know what's wrong with it. The only thing that's been consistent is that it has flown OK after somebody uses a programmable transmitter with it. But, I have no idea how long it'll work this time. Anybody have an idea what it might be?

Thanks,
George

Update: Just tried the heli again and the swash problem is already back.
