There is still no FAQ thread that is kept clean and informative, with only tips and hints. As long as no one is willing to make the effort to start and maintain such a thread, this situation of threads about the mCP X coming and going will continue. How hard can it be to make such a thread possible? I myself manage the same for the Solo Pro/Bravo SX helis, have a full time job, a wife and kid, parents that are elderly and need some extra care once in while, and I also find time to fly and play video games. And I do sleep at night. I know I am not Superman, so there must be others who can do the same for the mCP X. Or doesn't anyone care enough?

Wow you have a kid, wife, and job? jk... I say that because you are on here alot lol. Anyway, I agree, these threads including this one are useless withought some direction. What pitch? which bearing? Loctite? binding? lols!

what are the bearing's dimensions?
why not just replace them with WK blade grip ones? (i'm guessing
they are both 1.5x4)

Bob, don't you feel like starting the mCP X FAQ thread and maintaining it? You actually own the heli. Seems like no eFlite fanboy is willing to put in the effort, perhaps a proud Walkera user should show them the way...

I agree. The main thread is closer to 8000 replies, and buried within that is a few good tips.

I started an Owner's thread here that is so far kept short with discussion on settings, issues, etc. It moves slow enough that your questions should be caught and answered by someone
