MX-400 CCPM Conversion:

I updated my MX-400 with the CCPM conversion, I also upgraded the washout and blade grips (the CCPM conversion came with a new swash).

Overall I am pleased with how the conversion went, I was thinking that this was going to be a mess of an upgrade but once you get going things move rather quickly. The frame is a lot cleaner now and with the top rails gone there is room for pretty much any battery one can think of now.

Specs of Final Setup:

Align 430L (3550Kv) with 11T pinion:
CC-35 amp ESC with ParkBEC (5-volt)
Berg 7P Horizontal
3ea HS-65HB servo's for swash
GY240 Gyro
HS-81 for tail servo
Polyquest 16C 2100mah 3-cell (8-10min flight time)

Mods:
Trex tail rotor blades
Full CNC head (helimax)
CNC tail drive (helimax)
Trex flybar and pads

Post conversion flight notes:

The heli is much more crisp in it's control now and the cyclic response is great. The Trex tail rotor blades have also increased the tail authority by a large margin. Overall it's a lot more fun to fly , the only upgrades left I would like to do would be a GY401 or Logitech 2100 gyro to increase the tail hold.
