sorry for the questions just trying to learn

I would have to download your TX user manual but here is an example.


Pitc Curve

NOR 30% 40% 50% 75% 100% should be the following below.



Pitch Curve - 5 point curve

NOR

Point - L = 30%

Point - 1 = 40%

Point - 2 = 50%

Point - 3 = 75%

Point - H = 100%



Pitch Curve - 7 point curve

NOR

PL = 30%

P1 = INH

P2 = INH

PM = 50%

P3 = INH

P4 = INH

PH = 100%

Sorry for the off-topic guys but:

the nano came to stores pretty quickly since its was first announced, so why the ultra micro spit is taking so freaking long?

But we digress. This is a thread about the nano CPX. I will play with mine tomorrow and see how tame I can get it. If my 11 year old son who has only flow an msr, can get the hang of it I will let you know.
I went directly from mSR TO 130 X, with good results, but I find myself a bit timid with the 130 X because neither the CG nor the rotor stop moving immediately upon hitting throttle hold. It hits the ground hard, at speed, and the tail gears swallow grass blades and take damage. At 1 oz., I'm hoping the nCP X gives me back that invulnerable feeling, so I can fail harmlessly more often/improve faster.

If the nano does not give you back the "invulnerable feeling" nothing will. See my video a few pages back! However you may find that the power of the 130x has kept you from crashing in some situations. For me the nano is a great replacement for the MCPx. For me both have a permanent place in my fleet, until something better comes out that is.

Is that still not there? Perhaps they ran into the same servo problems as with some other recent UM planes? The gyro that most new UM planes have put much more strain on the servos, as these are constantly moving to stabilize the plane, where in the classic setup the pilot did that, and only when there is too much deviation of selected course.

So any in depth reviews yet?

How does it compare to MCpx or mini cp besides size?

Thanks for all the help guys! I flew it this morning and it feels pretty good, some tweaking on my throttle curve is still needed and I still need to set up a throttle hold but other then that it's nice. It's pretty stable too, I've been out of heli's for a few years, shoot my last heli was a hirobo freya 90, but this little guy brought it all back, I was able to hold a nice nose in funnel on the first flight!

To me it seems a bit more underpowered than the MCPx, it is lighter, and definitely more durable, the tail holds better. I would say it's better suited to indoor flight with limited space, but less well suited to outdoor flight where you have wind and lots of room.

Mcpx (V2) Vs. Nano cpx (Ncpx)

Here is my two cents...
1.The nano does not bog as much as the stock Mcpx
2. I can tic toc more than once with the Nano
3. Piro flips are fast, fun and repeatable with the Nano
4. I think both are very durable! Considering 5 years ago on the blade cp, when you crashed it meant new spindle or feathering shaft and new blades. Now if you crash you pick it up and place it up right and fly again.
5. The tail for the nano, holds! (out of the box with no modifications)
6. Every now and then the nano has a weird wobble. I figure this will be solved through this thread. (It looks like canopy washers might be the fix.)
7. The canopy is not the yellow that I expected..... this last point is nit picky.
8. fun factor = 10 scale 1-10, 10 being the highest.

Funny! Mine has been holding up well, but I broke the rear swash ball! Used some Gorillia glue and it seems to be holding up. It sucks there aren't a surplus of parts yet for this baby!! Oh and also one of my batteries has taken a dump!

well here's my somewhat short flight experience with the nano cpx:
First 3 flights went wonderful. Flew all packs with no issues at all using mfg recommended settings on my dx6i. Afterwards the tail would blow out on rapid decent spinning the heli clockwise. Another issue was it would no longer automatically bind with my radio and would have to keep rebinding manually after switching batteries.
Kinda aggravating because I eagerly anticipated the release of this heli and then now this.
Called HH and they advised me to send it back to them so they could check it out.
Really sucks...now the waiting period begins..AGAIN.
