Pretty good flight, all I would say is you are being a bit aggressive with the throttle, as you probably already know you should never get that close to the ceiling

Trying to keep your mCX2 in a steady hover then flying in a circle keeping the same altitude is much harder than doing pirouettes and will teach you to have better control of your heli

There is another group on this forum that issues plane and heli challenges, you might have a brilliant time trying to do some of the past challenges and take part in the new ones posted

Hi,
When you say you get it stable and it flies in a little circle, this sounds a bit like TBE (Toilet Bowl Effect) and that is usually associated with the flybar or connecting buckles or both.

Here is a video from You Tube that should help you maintain your mCX2 in great flying shape.

This video will give you tips on flying

If you click on my name, this will take you to my blog and if you scroll down a bit you will see how to make yourself a cheap helipad from a cd case and the graphic is there to download and print as many as you want

There is also a great forum that has an E-flite section and you will find out tons of stuff about your heli here.

Feel free to ask any questions and I will help as much as I can, flying helis can be brilliant fun but can also be very demoralising if thing are going wrong.

cheers John.
