Thanks!

LOL how would I have a YouTube video without a YouTube channel?

Just slammed 33,333 total video views!!!!!

There is a little controversy over if that system is *completely* legal for non-HAM peoples (like me ) but I suspect that it's perfectly fine. Heck, some people use 910 mHZ on 1000 mw without HAM licenses! I'm still researching and I've also EMailed Trappy to see what he has to say.

Ok, hold the show... Damn.

That Nano CP X looks like the first heli in a long, long time that I've seriously considered grabbing. Anyone know if I'd be able to fly the BNF version with my stock mCX transmitter? I notice that the RTF comes with a DX4e, so I suppose the mixing must all be accomplished at the heli. It'd be a little rough flying it with zero transmitter programmability other than dual rates, but it can't be all that bad. Range wouldn't be a problem, obviously.

Micro helis have some so far since I left that game... We were still on NiMH batteries back then.

I feel like I'm on the verge of becoming an extremely fiscally irresponsible college student... But on the other hand, I have a hell of a lot of downtime and a rather large dorm. I need something to keep my flying muscles sharp while I'm here and that looks like exactly the thing for the job.

Nice! my channel just topped 10,000 last month I think. it is mostly dedicated to RC cars, but will be adding more plane stuff soon, once I can fly better

I guess it would bind to the transmitter, but I for one don't like the feel of the micro transmitters. not nearly as nice as a dx6i or similar and not as accurate either.

yes but he wants to use the one that looks like a N-64 controler. not a single switch on those.

True. I thought of that after I posted, and then a quick skim through the nano CPX thread here confirmed it.... Well heck, buying the RTF version for the extra forty bucks would save me the trouble of having my mCX transmitter shipped up from MN. I'm definitely gonna see about getting a job on campus here.

Hey, what did you guys all learn 3d on? I'm trying to decide what's the best plane to learn on. I do have a scratchbuilt super slo, but it's built out of blucore fanfold foam which is pretty brittle, not like epp. I think I'm gonna build another out of EPP, but not sure whether I should build that or some sort of Yak or something. what do you guys think would be good for a first 3d plane?

^What he said! Crack Yak 55 GOLD, 13g metal geared servos and the stock ESC/motor... great power, performance, and flight times if you get something higher than a 500 mAH 3S... depends if you want it real "floaty" or not.

Is the crack yak 55 pretty much the same as any yak 55? And I wanted to keep it as cheap as possible because I have all electronics and just need foam. Would any other scratch built yak 55 fly similarly well?
