Are those modules like the tactic adaptors for tx-r aircraft, so they can plug into a spectrum TX?

There should be no problems If these modules use the signal from the trainer port.

Ok I own both a mcpx and a turnify fbl100. I have extensively flown and crashed both, the fbl100 has a more locked in feel and is very stable when transitioning inbetween 3d manoeuvres it does not have the pitching tendancies or the cyclic wobble that the mcpx gets. The tail is also very locked in and it has a little more power. However it is not as crashable as the mcpx I found the main gear came off the main shaft very easily, the bearing would come out of the frame and also the swashplate would come apart. Mcpx parts do fit straight onto the fbl100 I am now using mcpx main shaft main gear and swashplate many crashes pick it up fly it again. I have also owned both genius cp and minicp they outperform both and hold up well in crashes except for the servos as they do strip gears if you are not quick on throttle hold when you crash.

Sounds good if FBL100 has no tail pitch loss and we use main gear and swash plate. Think I'm going to get one. So it should loop, roll and invert easier than stock mcpx v2? But you are saying the Walkera Genius and Mini still outperforms it?

Finally got a chance to fly this beast and seems I have a bad all in one board. It wanted to roll hard left and forward coming off the ground. Tried adding a little trim and it got worse. I took the main blades off , pulled the board and unplugged the main and t/r motor connections. At 1/2 throttle the swash goes up and forward. At full throttle all servos extend and then the pitch throttle comes about 1/2 way down by its self. At full throttle I gave it full forward and it stayed full throttle with a centered right stick. All movements are erratic and jerky. Hooked it all back up but left the blades off and with the motors turning same thing. Buying it from HK I know they won't offer any king of service so I guess I'll by a new board before I even try to fly it. Glad I have 6 other heli's to fly. Who has these boards and did we decide that the MCPx board will work? Any suggestions appreciated.

The servos are plugged into the correct sockets?? Do the servos move in the correct sense for pitch and roll when throttle is off?

Hobby King have spares for these including the board (although the boards are currently on back order). The only annoying thing about mine is the swash plate repeatedly separates on anything less than a perfect landing to the point where its now very loose.in the bearing. I might need to add a drop of epoxy to keep it holding together until spare swash plates arrive.

I have a repeating bug that occurs sometimes that when you connect lipo and begin powering up servo begins pitching the blades forwards slowly keeps going until max. I disconnect and plug back in and all is well, it is for this reason every time I now hold the heli to test before setting it down to fly.

There are reports that Walkera will in future make all their helis compatible with all their existing transmitters including the 2801pro. If you wait a bit longer, you may find a Mini CP compatible with the 2801 pro. The Mini CP is much more stable than the mCPX V2 when inverted. Its motor rarely gets bogged down and it is almost impossible to get a tail blowout. You can also consider the new Devo 7e trasnmitter which is quite cheap.

In the other thread it was said the mCP x swash is a direct replacement

The problem is that to do that Id have to replace the entire head assembly because the ball joints are larger on the FBL-100 swash plate so the links won't fit. The only thing in common is the main shaft diameter.

Epoxy seems to have done the job so far until spares arrive.

I've got the same problem as RockyTop has, only mine hard roll to the right and forward. Trims don't work. I've tried but the swashplate just doesn't want to center when throttle's up. If I turn on Throttle Hold then the swashplate will center itself and moves around nicely, but then the heli wouldn't fly. Has anyone got a fix to this problem?

I had an issue develop with mine yesterday. I found I needed full throttle just to fly. Turned out a small piece of grit from a landing in dirt had got into the pitch servo gear, limiting the full upward movement of the swash plate. Moving the pitch servo gear by hand located the spot where the gear was jamming and I used a small brush to clear the gear. The grit was so small it wasn't visible but it certainly had an effect.

Is this a good beginner rc helicopter to start learning? I'm torn between this and the mcpx.

I don't think mine had problems with grits and dirt because I unboxed mine just yesterday. I'm sure the problem lies with my board, especially the 3 axis gyro. Can I recalibrate or reset the board? Also if I have a RTF model, would rebinding it help?

Beginner in CP or beginner in helis? Makes a big difference.
