It sounds like you gotta sand the mount to fit the 8.5mm motor. Then gotta use a 10tooth pinion to reach the main gear. While adding weight to the nCPX?

Sounds like getting a brushless on there is still better.
Agree but Dylan is at least two weeks off on his kits. Oh well, both of mine are running fine for the moment. Have two extra main boards (repaired by coredump) so I will be able to have four BL conversion...low speed & high speed.

Here's a funny one. I was flipping it in the bedroom and I was not playing close enough attention and it flew into my upper front left leg inverted and actually drew a little blood. I was in my underwear when it happened and it wasn't too far from the family jewels. God help me if it was the high speed Bl motor. From now on I will be wearing my sweats or blue jeans! lol

Bob,
I caught a rotor blade on the forehead flying in the den. Pretty good whack for a small bird...

yeah i got one of these too whit extra sharp blades, took a slice off the top of my hand with no problem, but anyways i was wondering if anyone else has the same problem as i do. from straight out of the box it had a vibration and would walk away from me if i let it and seems to be getting worse in the air. before you ask i have checked it out several times and havent noticed anything wrong. i have 3 mcpx's and never had this issue with them. i called horizon hobby and they want to treat me like im a high school kid with a my first r/c helicopter. i paid asking price for it at the hobby shop and they want me to send it in for testing?..the service guy said about 2 week turn around...i didnt pay that much for a helicopter to send back to them for testing..i dont know if the hobby shop i got it from will swap it out for me or not and its over an hour away..guess i gotta make a decision...anyone having any issues with theirs?

Fast little buggers, aren't they?

On a different note, I just received my 190mAh and they are about 5/16 longer than the 150mAH e-flites but they both weigh the same....6 g. I would have thought the 190's would be heavier. I tried them on an old fashion postage scale also with a balance weight and they both came out the same. I have to charge them up and try them out Friday. Going out of town tomorrow.

Bob

Changed kg to g....big difference

Is this 8mm Nano more powerful than the mSRX ?
thanks

I am about to try a 180mAh mad dog on my stock and my brushless. I bet it gives them both a bit of pep

I tried the MQX motor mod and it didn't work for me, I ended up breaking the mount trying to fit the larger motor. You have to sand away too much plastic and it becomes very fragile, it may work for a little while but I can't honestly see it lasting through a crash. Ok so brushless it is, what motor, esc, and hardware do I need? HP03T for the motor is that correct?

Which 190mAh did you buy? The only one I am aware of is the MiniAviation.

The EFlite 150mAh is among the lighter LiPo in it's class @4.28g. And generally, the 190mAh are over 5g.

Hows the flight time and throttle punches?

That's what I got were the MiniAviation. Haven't used them yet as they are on the charger. Will try them this Friday. Both my stock battery and the 190 weight 6g on my scale. Don't know why they are the same weight because they are not the same size.
