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.
Thanks Dave for your incite. Product looks super on the video. JAMES does it justice. Now I just need one for my fleet!!!

Glad you are having fun and progressing too!!!

EXACTLY what I was looking for. Then about 6 months ago I said it would be really nice to have an mSRx sized indoor CP heli and NOW they've released this.

Awesome job guys! Seriously. You know you're doing the right thing as a company when you are consistently putting products on the shelves that allow people to find more and more ways to have fun with this hobby.

What a fantastic time to be in the hobby. I can fly helis in my house. I can fly helis in my backyard. I can fly planes in my backyard. And when it's freakin' raining or too cold... guess what? I can plug my transmitter into the computer and getting a really darn good simulation experience.

Keep it coming HH... keep it coming!! Off topic but while you're at it - how about that dang Park Size Beast I've been looking/waiting/longing for all this time? You got me hooked on the wee Beastie with the V1 and now the 3D Beast with AS3X. Now I just need a park flyer sized Beast (preferrably balsa but I'll take whatever you can give me )!
Off topic too!

Man I would love a park sized BALSA 3D Beast.
How much do you think it would cost?

Seems like Mikel just mentioned your learning inverted on the R/Cast. http://www.horizonhobby.com/content/...t_render-rcast

I'm pretty sure it is the mSRX main, which is the biggest 8.4mm out, with an mCPX tail.

my only fear is that the tail will blow out with pitch movements. i really hope we all dont have to extend the tail like the mcpx. it just looks dumb.

Dave, will the nCPx be at the Horizon Hobby US Airmeet this weekend? I was hoping James would be showing it off since he is going to be there.

Wow, really glad I returned my MCPX and skipped it altogether. This one is exactly what I've been looking for, thank you Horizon!
