this is good news and not the case of course with old Blade batteries But if they are as good as you say then 50% the price of TP sounds even better

I have about 24 flights on my nano. I have crashed it about 5 times. The verticle fin on the tail has a high frequency vibration that gets worse with a new battery but, gets less as the battery runs down. It is also worse in IU than in normal mode. I have tried new links, played with blade tightness, changed blades from performance to bullet, oiled bearings, changed tail rotor without improvement. I'm thinking I should change the feathering shaft although I haven't crashed it that hard.. Any other ideas?

WOOHOOO!!! mine came in today...I'll charge up some batts, and head over to Killeen tomorrow and pick it up!! The DX6i is programmed and ready to go too!!!

Unfortunately he doesn't have ANY 130X repair parts in stock That thing has been out for a while, so I would think he'd have some, but he doesn't...Those parts should be here about Thur from HH anyway...but I still want to fly my 130x...
Got some 160s and a bunch of other batts from my Msr, so I should be good for a while!!

To check the feathering shaft take one blade off and try this. While one blade is one it is very easy to see a wobble

Check your feathering shaft like indoorheli says first. You will have to use those 2 plastic wrenches that came in the bag with your heli. If it is straight then I would check for vibration due to main blades out of balance. You should be able to spin up the heli at 100% throttle at midstick (zero pitch) and the heli should be smooth as silk. If not, balance the mains by adding some clear tape.

+1 I like the new Eflites. I have some tp's as well as hyperions and bang for the buck, the Eflites are pretty good. Just bought 4 more at the lhs today.

Just hovered for four batteries. Still all I am doing with the nano is hovering outside. I'm fairly shielded by the house and the garage, but it's still way too much wind for something like the mCX2, but the nano handles it quite well.

I might just go to the store and get a few more batteries...

You are going to love it. I remember your mcpx vids.
I just drove 20 miles to get one. It's everything I thought the mcpx was going to be. Tight flips and rolls from the couch inches away from the laptop

My new favorite heli. The 130x is going to be on the shelf for a while..

Just picked mine up from the LHS. Is there anything I need to do to get this heli ready for flight. Do the main grips need the extra canopy grommet mod done?

Also a page or two ago in this thread someone posted about turining the pots down on the 4 port charger. That is the charger I am going to use. Do you have a picture of exactly what needs to be adjusted? I have never opened this charger up so I have no idea whats in there

Thanks for any help...
