I was about to get a nano from another member on rcgroups this morning, but then they unveiled the MCPx BL and I decided I think I might have to buy this one instead.

Looking forward to this release.

But from where I am standing, no ability to set a govern headspeed. Or set a precomp tail curve. So the BLheli equipped BL converted mCPX still offers more flexibility.

And what's up with releasing the 5th Blade Heli with the anti rotation pin out of the swashplate pivot plane?

Anyways, I do believe that HH knows us hobbyist wanted a mCPX outfitted for brushless. (Meaning the majority of parts are compatible, including 3rd party upgrades)

What they did is made a new micro CP heli and assigned it the mCPX name.

Anyways, I am not hating on the new Heli. Just putting it out there for friendly discussion while we wait for the new bird to arrive.

Yeah I noticed the pin too.

Might be better to build one with aftermarket frame.

for me personally, I would just spend the extra cash on a 130x, but I do think this is cool.

I guess thats true if you fly 3d in your living room, but i dont, I need a larger space, the spaces i currently fly my nano and mcpx, I could fly the 130x as well, plus having a real tail is appealing to me. for you guys that are very good at 3d and can do flips in a closet, this would be the obvious choice.

brushless main and tail motor.... very nice, hope that tail motor isnt too expensive to replace if the shaft gets bent.
