Found it:
Compass Warp 360 prototype testing (2 min 37 sec)
Toy Fair 2012: Warp 360 - Compass (1 min 2 sec)


That's the kind of stoopid power I've been striving to get out of the Mini. I've come close but just want something bigger.

I am going to be getting a Mini CP in the next week or two and have a couple questions. This is going to be my first CP heli and I want as much flight time as possible to learn to fly it, so am I better off getting a brushless setup to start, or use the stock motor and get some higher mah batteries for now to get extra flight time? I figure it's going to be a while before I try any 3D, so the extra weight of the batteries might be ok - or not.

Also, what spares should I keep on hand?

I would keep it stock for the moment. I would use 350mAH batteries from the Genius brushless conversion kit. They will give you over 5 minutes of flight time.

These batteries I like. They give me 9 min (with mild 3d) on a genius motor.

i get 3:30 to 4 minutes 3d on that brand 350mAH batteries and another few minutes doing figure 8's around my property line. i never go till the battery is dead cause i don't want it to fail in a bad spot in the air and end up in a high tree or on the roof at a point i can't get to it.

Killed a receiver tonight and in turn my interest in this hobby. I've spent too much money and am moving on. All of my Mini cp stuff is for sale in the helis section.

I actually set the telemtry function in my Devo 8S to 3.4V so it beeps if it is less than that and that's around 9min flight time with mixed 3d and sports flying.

I have trouble in flipping the heli back upright once the voltage reaches 3.6V. Therefore, I set my beeper at 3.7V

No trouble in my case on 3.4V. I do feel less power at that point but can still manage flipping back upright. Actually, after it beeps less than 3.4V on stunt mode I can still do sports flying in Norm mode for about a min or so. Total flight time around 9min. Again this is on a genius motor which is lighter than stock and brushless. Maybe its my collective and cyclic pitch settings. I know for sure that I have more than -10/+10 on them.

Is the main motor running at full speed independent of throttle stick position? If so, then the FET is likely bad. That's the problem with mine and I've ordered replacement FETs from DigiKey.
