mcpX V2 or BL ? orr bigger ?

Hey everyone

I have an empty spot in my heart and it needs to be filled with a new heli.

I currently have been flying a Nano cpx and I want to move into something a little more stable. I have a dx7s.

I like the price of the mcpX v2 right now ($150).... plus I have two spare batteries already.

But the mcpX BL seems like a more stable bird plus the extra bit of size I have read makes it more stable then its earlier version.

Im not into 3D flying yet. Just picked up the controls to a heli before Christmas.
I would be taming down the BL version FORSURE !

My other option is to go with a 300X ..... ? size, stability, cheap replacement parts still.

What would you do ?

Absolutely go to mcpX BL it is an enjoyable heli.....and if you crash it ...at 90 % no problem at all....It is a very powerful beast....next step will be the 300 x ...but if you crash it...some damage will arrive...especially on main blades......

I havent had any experience with the nano. I do however have lots with the mcpx on Pheonix Flight Sim. The Mcpx Bl was my first CP heli, comparing it to the simmed version of the brushed mcpx.... Well, it doesnt. The extra power and size, seems(to me) to make it much more stable. Why deny yourself the extra power and stability, once tamed you will love this heli!

Hmmm
What are the options for charging the batteries ? Does the stock charger take a long time to charge ?

I like MQX as well .... It seems like a perfect trainer and it's only $120 !

I ended up with a MQX for now... I bought two extra batts with it. So I should be good to go.

I bound it to the dx7s and set d/r to 75 expo 30 and gave it a maiden flight and I didn't have any trouble flying it at all in my small 10'x10' work shop.
I cant wait to get it outside.

Don't have the mcpx bl but do have the mcpx v2, nano, mqx, msrx and 300x. I love my mcpx but 300x is a whole different ball game. If you are ready I would skip right to the 300x. I have no desire for another micro after the 300x, bigger is better
