Blade Nano CPX first hovering

Last night, I maidened my new Blade Nano CPX.

As the pitch was around -18/-4/+10, I adjusted the pitch approx. -14/0/+14 by lengthening the three push rods 2 turns.

I programmed my JR 11X ZERO according to the settings for DX8 in the manual.

I hovered five packs in my living room.

At first, the heli was a bit too twitchy for me.

I adjusted the TC/PC gentle and reduced D/R to 70% for the aileron and the elevator.

Athough the heli is less twitchy now, it is still harder to hover than mCPX or 130X. The behavior is quite similar to Walkera MiniCP, IMHO.

strengths:
-small enough for living room hovering.
-quieter than mCPX or MiniCP.
-not so fragile. any minor crashes are OK.
-easy to FFF with the stock bullet main rotor blades.

weaknesses:
-The stock pitch setting may be incorrect.
-a bit twitchy.
-the tail authority is not so good.
-the stock main motor will last not so long. Mine died on the 24th flight.

My current Blade fleet: Nano CPX(2), 130X(2), mQX, 300X and 450X.
#I sold mCPX, mCPX2 and 450 3D.
