What's up micro flyers? I got myself a nano cpx for x-mas while visiting my dad in florida. Hopefully I can help get this thread going again. I've been flying planes for the last 2 years but have been flying helis again on the sim. I figured I would grab one for indoor/outdoor and mild 3d. Very durable little beast. This is the first heli I have been able to fly inverted for more than a few seconds. Here is a cell phone vid from day 3. Just practicing some inverted with a few blade scrapes.

I'm in for some new challenges - we just ran a hover contest on the AS3X Sbach thread and it was a hoot.

As for the nano - this is all I've been able to do with it. Man, that thing is FAST, even compared to the MSRX!

Nano "Ladderball" (1 min 46 sec)


The MSRx is easy by comparison:

subscribed, my best tight quarters stuff is flying through the kids swing set and play house and my jeep when the top is off. I never try with the nano though, I am with you, the msrx is way easier.

The Nano is fast for sure. I'm very happy with it. Looks like the heli bug has me again. I should have a modded 130x on monday.
I'm thinking of an indoor challenge for the micro cp guys.
I had my nano out yesterday. Recorded 4 flights but only one had the heli in frame enough to post.

Wow - that was awesome! I finally learned to flip mine, but inverted hovering is still several broken tailbooms, bent feathering shafts, and smashed canopies away!

Got my new Hp08s powered 130x out today for a couple flights. Still tweaking but I'm getting pretty close. This is my 5th flight on the heli. Plenty of power even in the cold. I bet she will scream in the warm weather. This one will be touchy for indoor challenges.
