Naw I wont. Probably build it in a couple months. Just get the aerosky quad from nitroplanes and see if my sister will let me use her cheapo little machine gun.

Have to say that that's the worst idea I've heard of in months... you're going to get yourself or someone hurt.

It was a good maiden, I took off it started snowing so I landed, but then it stopped and I took off again. My mom didn't even get out of the car she just watched and honked the horn at me when she was impressed

Hey, now what could go wrong? Not like you could loose control or fire in the wrong direction now could you? Not like you could accidentally hit someone in the face or have the battery die mid-flight because you're lifting too much weight in the first place!

Please for the love of flying don't try this.

Y'all are crazy to think that he'd succeed. After a while something would fail. The technology isn't perfect yet.

DO NOT DO IT. PERIOD

nobody really cared that I did it.

Totally irrevelant guys, but here are some helis. One of the three i will eventually grt to practice 3D on before I do the moves on the 300x. Your opinions?

Nano CP X
http://www.horizonhobby.com/products...-x-bnf-BLH3380

Blade mCP X BL
http://www.horizonhobby.com/products...bl-bnf-BLH3980

Blade 130x (PRICE DROP )
http://www.horizonhobby.com/products...-x-bnf-BLH3780


At the price point of the mCPX BL, I might as well get a 130x and have a real tail.

A few Pros and cons I have heard

130x
Cons
-Unique parts (more expensive)
-Complains of stripping torque tube tail gears stripping
-Unique battery

Pros
-Brushless
-Real tail (No ETRM)
-Larger size for better wind handling


Nano CP X
Cons
-Tiny parts (Hard to repair)
-Light
-Brushed (Issues over time)

Pros
-Cheap
-Cheapish parts
-Common Battery size

mCPX BL
Cons
-New and untested
(Not sure what else to say because I haven't heard much)

Pros
-Works with other mCPX parts
-Brushless
-Common battery size

I'm looking at the 130x. Mostly, because It has been tested and tried (and the price drop ). It also has a real tail so I don't have to worry about blowouts as much as I would with the mCP X BL and Nano CPX. My top contenders are the 130x and the nCP X, I will see about the mCPX BL though!

I'm ordering my 300x soon because they lowered the price down to $320.00 on HH!

the real tail is a good thing, on my brushed mcpx the tail kept blowing out. Although the BL mcpx has a brushless tail now.
And you could go withTP325 batteries. Just solder a JST onto the heli.
(Those E-flights wont last all that long)
The brushed MCPX was really tough, not sure about brushless.
Not sure about the nano. It is really small, one would think it could get squirelly quick. And its brushed.
