I forgot about the converter. I can't use it cuz i'd need something like the steve if I can't flash it right?

I guess i'm going to have to wait for astroid to get them in stock... Hopefully soon.

I bet you could reach 10k rpm easily with the 06 and the right gearing lol
I'd definitely reinforce the whole head at that speed... And probably never fly it within a good few yards from me lol

It sounds pretty wicked now at 100% throttle on the hp06v2 with 8t pinion on 61t main gear. I have some beefier 64t main gears on the way since powerful brushless motors, especially governed ones, tend to chew up main gears.

hey guys, wheres the best place to get a brushless set up. every time i order mini cp parts, I've been ordering extras. I've got almost got enough parts to build a whole new mini cp. just need a canopy, receiver, swashplate, main gear, and brushless set up. the problem is, i don't know exactly what i need to go brushless. wow has this: http://www.wowhobbies.com/turboace41...43g-3-1-1.aspx

I think my new DIY Tail Fins made from credit card material are about as durable as the stock Tail Fin. Maybe if made from a CD they would be more durable?

Jon's reflective tape suggestion sounds promising, and I'll be looking into it.

Also, someone about a month ago posted that the $50 "DarkMatterBlade" Night Blades advertised at HeliRCStore for the mCPx and Genius will also work with the Mini:

Thanks guys. Great ideas. I will order the genius v2 canopy and reflective tape. The night blades are a little overkill for me, considering their price.
I will make a couple of DIY tail fin to be ready to the final breakdown of the original.
Thanks again.

For day time flying I have found that florescent orange tape is much better than than reflective tape.. And also for late evening flying. Reflective tape might be best if you are flying at night with a hat flashlight..

Do you mean something like this?

I have high lights in the night where I fly, so probably reflective tape will do?

Thanks for making it's retroreflective properties clear to us Bob.

Here is a Wiki excerpt:

Scotchlite is a retroreflective material made by 3M. Its primary use is in nighttime high-visibility applications, such as 'reflective tape' for cyclists, safety vests for road workers, or the front of many traffic signs. Scotchlite was invented in 1936 [1].


Scotchlite is designed to take advantage of the retroreflective optical properties of the glass beads, which collect light from any angle of incidence and reflect it back in the direction it came from. The surface of Scotchlite is densely packed with microscopic glass beads (usually titanate glass). In addition, each glass bead is covered with a metallic reflective layer on its rear half, enhancing its retroreflective properties. A surface covered with Scotchlite seems to glow brightly when viewed from the light source, but appears dull gray from most other directions.

There may be another way for us to get lit and fly high all hours of the night:

I have just heard that Walkera has repaired one of my four broken MIni CP receivers for me, so I am back in business again. I have still got three receivers with them that have blown fets. I do not see any reason why they cannot be repaired. However, they were unable to repair two V120D02S and a Genius receiver that suddenly stopped working for unknown causes.

I also heard that the 6 axis gyro on the new V120D02S cannot be turned off, even though the heli is as 3D capable as before. It is reported to be considerable more stable than the old V120D02S, with the tail being completely solid with pitch pumps.

Hi guys,
Can anyone comment on the "flyability" of the Mini CP indoor? I mean really fly, not hovering. I have a v120d02s, but it is really too big to be flown indoor.
If anyone has both the Mini CP and the v911, maybe you could help post the size comparison of the two?
I'm thinking of getting the MiniCP, but only if I can get it to fly indoor.
Thanks.

I don't think you can easily compare the fixed pitch v911 to this cp as they will be completely different beasts. I have a bravo sx (fp) and I felt very comfortable throwing this around my living room and crashing in to whatever but with the mini cp there is a lot more potential to do real damage to both possessions and yourself so most of the time indoors is spent hovering. If I do "fly" indoors then it is very restrained and controlled... saying all that though, it depends on how much indoor space you have to fly in!

Edit:

Here are the dims:

V911:
Main Rotor: 192mm
Length: 220mm
Weight: 32g

Mini CP
Main Rotor : 240mm
Length : 210mm
Weight : 45g

Not much in it!
