They have been Superb from day one for me. From Nano to 5 spare parts orders. Even called me when I ordered the Glow Skids to verify what I was buying the skids for.

Probably just a fluke, store Demo got in box and escaped from store...

I would be quite unhappy if that happened, though I too have had good service from them. They will always match and beat anybodies pricing and have always seemed to have good customer service when i call or email.


Curious was it damaged?

No. Let down, yes. If they are sending a new one though, then they are making it right. Besides, it's just a Toy Heli.


I get more worked up over things like, getting a $10K hospital bill for my dad in the mail today, that we were told the Insurance was picking up "100%"!

It's called, having perspective...

I'll try removing the tail fin and let you guys know if it changes tail hold at all.

Heli had tail wag, blades were tight unlike my first nCPX that I purchased from my LHS & the box had been retaped and showing wear from repeated openings.

Yeah, all that blah blah from me just pretty much meant I don't think we're gonna get that locked in feeling we want from a cpitched tail.

I just think you have to move up to a 130x to get a locked in tail. The nano is more for practicing inverted/loops and collective management.

I think you're right about that.

However, There could be a problem with your board? I only say this because you made it seem exceptionally bad in your original post about this.

I am huckin' it back and forth - tail first at a pretty good clip across 20-25 feet of backyard right now(between post and edits) and even with the fin on, it is holding for me upright or inverted.

No it only happens occasionally, under max cyclic load and/or under a decent amount of speed with heavy input. My MSRx has similar tendencies.

Okay. I guess that's just the flight envelope for now then. - Couple more years will be interesting for this small stuff. (I mean a Nano with a tail-drive or the like)

Agreed, a brushless nano with a tail drive would be something to behold. Being able to practice every scale move with a 180 buck micro? Yes please.

I agree completely..... Working towards that goal slowly. HP06s motor, double FET modded 3.5A ESC with BLHeli, signal converter to tail servo, homemade tail unit and kevlar belt drive. She's got power, but keeps breaking belts.

That's some impressive modification... If it works you should give Blade the heads up!
