Called LHS #1, he said he preordered a bunch and he'd call me today if they came in early, but he's expecting Monday - no call so far, so they aren't coming in today.

Called LHS #2 and he said he wasn't expecting any until deep into next month.

Got annoyed and went out and bought an MSR-X instead, very happy with the purchase.

I talked to 3 of the ebay sellers, and even though they wont have them in hand until Monday, they are still advertising ready to ship and buy it now!
How can you sell something you dont even have yet...lol.
I thought I may get lucky and some would still ship today, but it looks like the majority are expected to reach resellers next week. Oh well, hope to see some nice vids/pics from you lucky few that are getting today and Saturday

I have mine and have 5 flights on it. I can attest it is tough. The controls are very fast. I flew it outside in 20mph winds and it handles it well and is a real hoot. I saw the shop owner slam his into a metal fold up chair and it didn't even dent the leading edge of the blades. Mine does have the cyclic shakes like the 130X though. The one in the shop did not but he had the rotor head speed turned down.

I was able to get the tail to blow out but nothing like the MCPX. Got about 3 minutes of hard 3D. It uses the same batteries as the msr the my son flies so I have tons batteries.

Flying inside on hardwood floors. Inverted I pushed when I should have pulled and noticed mine does not kill the power to the main motor on crashing like the MCPX. It just flopped around, till I hit TH, like a nitro bird in the old days.


My LHS still has two more. PM for information.

Same landing gear as the MSR. Looks like the same size main motor as the MSR also. Same tail motor and tail blades as the MCPx. Same radio programing as MCPx.

Yes same tail blade/blades. The gyro gains are not settable via the same full throttle at setup like the 130x.

Picked mine up at the LHS today. Brought some tp 150's with me along with my DX8. This one is truly a BNF model. Bound it up, and it flew perfectly right out of the box. Initial impressions is it's a flyweight and silky smooth. Flew it in the hobby shop, then out in the parking lot. There was a slight 1-2 mph breeze and it get's blown around a bit.

I don't see how Giovanni flies it in 20 mph wind.

The tp 150 was a bit tight. I think Nano's are going to be to fat for the stock lg.

Gotta fly more, but initial impressions is it's going to be a winner
