Scale mCPX - MD500
Hey everyone. Here is what's new on my end. I'll try and get a good outdoor video as well as some pictures.
It flies amazing now! It is so much more fun and now it just look right.
The reason for me doing this is so I won't crash trying to 3d it. The lack of power always sends it into the ground. So if I don't break it, it won't cost me more money to fix. All that is left is a metal Xtreme rotor head to add that finishing touch.
I'm also playing with pitch and throttle settings to help it out a bit. I don't need any negative anymore.

The fuse is from darthdrk, a member on here who does much larger fuses. He also painted it black and applied a silver tape for trim, just like I asked. It wasn't made for the mCPX though so I had to use the trial and error mounting process.
I know what to do now though so I might do another one, except I'ld be doing the paint job.
Here is another that I found today.

I need a battery that fits inside. I might take two smaller cells and run them in parallel.
Oops, those pictures were definitely taken against the ceiling.

I've never flown any Walkeras before so I can't compare them, but a little expo makes this one pretty stable. No it will not fly hands off, but small corrections is all that is needed.
What I like about this fuse is that extra 9.22 grams. The extra weights helps the heli carry more momentum which just makes it seem so smooth from a spectators perspective.

Which begs the question - which dimension is too large to fit?
I know outfitting the darthdrk fuse with the mCPx mechanics will require at least a little massaging, so I'm just trying to get as much info as I can before I get it in my grubby little hands......I can't see how how you have the battery mounted in your pictures (which is a good thing in a scale model).

I ran mine with a straight throttle curve can't remember exact but prob at least 85% accross the board, keeps head speed nice and even for the most part. Bottom of the pitch set at 20%, mid 50%, Top 90%. It flew great and very scale like. A short flight video is in the post above as well.
Also darthdrk did an awesome job on this fuse, this was my third one of his creations. The man is an artist! This fuse is also very light and works just fine on the stock brushed set up for scale flying.

I'm also flying a V1, one of the first actually. I was actually thinking about doing the same thing you mentioned about removing the cockpit glass/canopy like the larger scale fuses. Right now it is just a toss up front and fly. I like the sporty look of the MD500d (e is too serious looking) and I think mounting anything external takes away from that.
Have you seen the multiblade rotor heads someone made for this heli? I think they made a 5 blader too, but they had flight issues. I'll try and find it again.
It is a bit more consistent if you start at 0 pitch, but a little negative would help a little on spool. This is where I am at at the moment and it is definitely getting better. It feels more precise. I fly with a Dx8.
