In the mCPx manual it says those are weights and those blades are the "starter" blades as the heli will react "tamer" with those than with "regular" blades.

that makes sense. I figured they were weights but I didn't realize the mcpx blades had them too.

Compare with Solo Pro 100 or 125?

I'm keen to know how this heli fare when compared to Solo Pro 100 or 125?

Does the transmitter support simulators? Cos the Nine Eagles J6 Pro does and I find it a godsend.

guess a lot of it depends on how "good" and how versatile the TX is ... IF it is both, then its not that bad, but as nobody really knows, I personally rather buy another SP100 for half the price ...

The transmitter is much better than what comes the mcpx . Fully programable with 3 flight modes

I understand the pricing is on par with the MCPX , but the transmitter you are getting is superior to the DX4, plus it comes with 2 lipos. I will talk with the store owner about the price.

maybe, but it is still a no name tx. at least with the mcpx you get spektrum compatibly.

edit:

and for us residents, the ability to run down to your lhs for parts.

I will admit. the radio does look nice.

The case looks like JP and the writing on it (FHSS) kind of reminds me of Futaba ...

The one thing I know I'll get once its offered though is the canopy ...

I don't think there is much for N. American residents. However, you should still be able to run down to your LHS for parts since most MCPx parts are compatible. Where this heli may do well is in countries where Blade helis have little or no penetration, such as China and Japan.

For existing MCPx owners though, it may offer the chance to buy compatible parts such as servos at a lower price. However, any N. American vendors carrying this heli would run the risk of getting a lawyer's letter from HH in no time.
