Yes it's a drop in replacement, I'm running one on mine.You do need to extend the boom if your running a more powerful brushless setup, however if your nano is stock or has a mild brushless motor the the extended boom isn't needed.

Depends on what your definition of stable is. I am an intermediate-beginner. Basically a newbie with some skills. It is not stable at all compared to a SYMA s107, you will lose control instantly if you do not know how to control a CP bird, but it is quite stable for a micro CP and a great choice as an entry to collective pitch helicopters, as that is what I am using it for.

If you are moving up from a coax, I'd recommend the flybar mSR (not mSRX) first. It requires a whole different level of skill, but it's not as unforgiving as a CP heli. If you are flying single-rotor FP helis now, then I can't recommend the nCPX enough. Especially starting out, the combination of capability and durability is incredible.

Mine will hover for 5-10 seconds hands-off ... correct the wrong way and it will be in the wall in under a second. That's CP for you. The good news is that it's unlikely to hurt the heli or the wall, especially if you're quick on the TH.

Good point. I wasn't considering BL motors.

Normal MCPX boom, or extended?

Normal MCPX boom, I believe it's 125mm long. I run a stock out of the package MCPX boom with my "wild" BL nano.

Hi guys,
Is there a big learning curve with a cp Heli. I have a mcx2 and a 120 sr. The mcx2 I can put just about anywhere. The 120sr is a little harder but I fly it with no problem. Both are fun but winter is here and I would like something new. Thanks David

Yes, it is a big learning curve, both for CP and for FBL. It is well worth it.

Okay, I'll wade in here. I just bought one of these . . er . . . Santa did. Come December 25th, I'll be maidening it. I've been flying the MSRX for a couple of years now, is this thing going to be to big a jump?

It's a great stepping stone. I just did it and already have it inverted. The simulator has helped me a bit but this little thing is pretty solid. I have trouble with the mCP X but the Nano in my back yard even with a slight breeze is great. Enjoy it

From an MSRX the step will feel just right.

When I try to pirouette starting with a still hover, tail toward me, it always starts heading to my 2 O'clock by the time it gets to 180 degrees, quite quickly in my opinion..
I figured the AS3X would keep the heli still but not the case..

Just wondering if there's something to adjust on the heli, or am I just expected to counter it with the sticks?

This is natural for the small guys I am starting to get the hang of it. but till till then I could hardly turn it 180 without having it swing way out there. in the house all I could do with hover tail in in the house.

Hi there!

As has been noted - it's the next logical step. It's nearly as tough as the original mSR, but it flies much better than the mCPX, and it's also a better aerobatic ship. I really enjoy flying mine in the living room & also in the backyard right from the deck.

I'm loving mine so far and after two days of flying I'm hooked.. I do feel that I've lost some power either from the lipos or the motor. Full throttle, climbs slow it seems but maybe it's me since at first I wouldn't make fast moves.
Is there an aftermarket charger? Can I use a power supply from my big lipo charger (2s-3s) to power the charger instead of using AA?
