F.a.r.m.e.r.,,, repuse el mcpx motor por uno nuevo, el anterior tenía el eje doblado.
Usé el soldador para calentar el piñón e instalarlo, ahora perfecto.

I think with mcpx motor it's heavier than normal brushed Genius... So that you have something like a mcpx...
Its nothing near the mcpx wieght just cause the motor swap, the mcpx (brushed) motor has twice the power of the stock (coreless) gcp motor, and runs alot cooler. And its cheap,

Hp03s bogs like crazy if you dont do any 3D its fine. But if you over gear it the motor will cog bad at startup.

I'm so glad you guys are communicating en español. I miss being south of the border here in USA and using what's left of my high school Spanish. It's easy to learn a language in this context of "heli-speak".
¡Continúe el buen trabajo!

I would use a piece of cut rc car fuel tubing as an oring to compress the servo horn around the teeth.

You are very creative, and im very impressed with your idea benmlee, going to do it to all my servos in the morning.

Thanks bud I love it

Farmer
Fuel tubing is a good idea if more tension is needed. Won't roll off like o-ring. Let me know if it works for you.

It might be better to have an un-edited "How fast can you land the Genius consecutively three times in a row on a 2.5 inch Diameter Helipad" challenge. This way, it helps reduce recording of any "chance" lucky landings.
Thanks,
It would be a fun competition to see who can land on the pad the fastest. Would be impressive to see someone do it quickly.

I wasn't so much concerned about speed of landing, but trying conceive a way to "rule" out a rare lucky landing!

I assumed whoever could land 3 times consecutively on that pad in the fastest amount of time probably wasn't "lucky", and had the best skill.

I think it would be nice, if someone/we came up with an international obstacle course that everyone interested around the world could easily reproduce, and compete. Maybe different "categories" of competition: Precision Landings, 3D Routine, etc.

Here is a servo saver for the Genius similar in operation to ones in r/c cars:

Here the video to clarify what I did.
Will have to wait for more crashes to see how well it works in all kinds of crashes

Great video, thanks a lot ben. So you don't think it is necessary to use shrink tubing or fuel line for added tension?

Hi all folks with great knowledge!

I'm a noob of working with brushless motors.
I would like to get some recommendations for a brushless motor for Genius.
Main goal is a motor for back to back flying.
Flying type is hovering and normal flying with perhaps some sport flying.
Perhaps if it's possible longer fly time and lower AUW.

I'm not afraig of soldering so thinking of a "Steve" and a small ESC like benmlee writes on his page but with a smaller motor.

I have read that Bob is using another motor but I haven't figured out what type exactly that is?


Regards
Paul

Hello farmer

Ok but I don't really understand.

What are the weights of genius cp brushed motor and mcpx brushed motor ?

Genius Cp stock is about 41.5g and mcpx about 44.5g. If you add 3g to the Genius, you have a kind of mcpx...

I thought the only one advantage of the Genius was its weight...

No weight is one of a number of advantages the genius has over the MCPX

Have you a list of the other advantages ?

the only advantage the mcpx has is a lot more parts available for modding,etc. other than that it's obsolete with its cheesy linear servos.
