I think we have forced Blade's hand. I was worried that this thread may get edited or deleted as in the Chinese forum.

Epic! This is exactly the CP heli I wished for! When I got the mCP-x, I realized it had a bit too much kinetic energy to be flows safely indoors. The Nano should be much safer for both the inventory and the spectators, let's just hope the tail is solid enough.

Looking at the parts list, the mCP-x v2 tail rotor suggests the same motor is used as well, shedding 36% of the weight, I believe the tail performance will be adequate out of the box.

The length has decreased by 'only' 16% to 197mm which is good.
Rotor diameter is down by 19%.
Weight down by 36%, heck this insect might even be LCD screen safe

HH should make some rubber/ foam tipped blades to make it perfectly safe for everybody, that might even include me

I really hope this nCP-x will be at least half as sturdy as the mSR, it would really enable a lot of people to skip the simulator practicing and simply learn 3D by doing.

I'm not exactly always over the moon when HH releases something, but this time I believe they have nailed it and deserve credit for it.

I agree with your analysis. And thanks!

A couple months ago I used the Nano to learn inverted hovering. The lower mass provides all the benefits you have described. Hit throttle hold and it's very much like the mSR from a durability standpoint. During this process I never popped a link much less lost one, and the main gear only slipped on the shaft once as a result of one hellacious impact. Canopy pins are still intact.

So from a personal experience standpoint, the Nano has helped me move to the next level in heli flying, and I'm now enjoying helis in a way I wasn't sure I'd ever achieve. You can call this hype if you want to, but I'm just sharing my own personal experience here. Your mileage may very.

This is what I have been looking for as a next step from an MSRX. MCPX performance in something small enough to fly inside. This will be a perfect heli for those of us who want to learn CP but are snowed in 5 months of the year. Small enough to fly in the garage, basement or living room and a lot cheaper than the MCPX.

Who said it doesn't already have a brushless motor.

What makes you think it will be cheaper? Size doesn't dictate anything.

List is cheaper and smaller parts are generally cheaper than larger parts. It is roughly MSRX size and at least at my LHS MSRX parts cost less than MCPX parts. Also smaller blades mean less drywall damage if you fly like I do.

ha haaa... you posted just as I was editing my post...

Let's just hope they offer this in a BNF package...
I'd actually like them to offer it in an AO package or BNF BASIC...as I have plenty of batteries and charges already!!
