Nice job on your review Tom. Looks like I may have to upgrade my MiniCP after all. LOL

Thanks guys.

I just added results for the mini cp helicopter with the mini cp main gear that covers headspeed, thrust, and flight times.

I now have tested the mini cp helicopter with the genius cp main gear and the mini cp main gear using the 8T pinion.

My personal preference is the mini cp and genius cp main gear.
Dylan's preference is the mini cp and the mini cp main gear.
We are both using the 8T pinion.

Good review Tom!

Quick note about the error message in BLheli setup software, its most likely because your ESC is flashed with Blheli V7, and your using BLheli setup V6.11.

V7 has more programming options than 6.11, mainly just that you can now adjust beep volume and adjust the volume and delay time on the lost model alarm, or Beacon as its called in the software. A few other changes were more for Multi rotors and airplanes.

Each time Steffan Skaug (creater of BLheli) makes an update, Achim (4712 on HF, creator of Blhelisetup software) has to make an update as well to match the firmware.

Does that oversky 7mm motor help prevent blowouts on stock mcpx?

I haven't tried in on my mCPX stock or BL but from the posts I saw for the 4G3 tail motor it performs much better than the stock tail motor.
The 7mm tail motor is comparable performance to the Walkera 4G3 tail motor.

Maybe Dylan can answer this better for you as he sells the 7mm motor for the mCPX.

Update 10/10/12


I just found out some more information on the kit and posted it in the review under "Update".

Also Dkfuji is being sent the upgrade kit to test out.
We will be comparing our results and he will be testing the 8T and 9T pinions.

My ESC came with the Blheli V7 so I didn't have to flash it.

You can flash the ESC with the BLHeli-Setup 7.0.0.1. It has the hex file in it.
Press the button FlashBLHeli, then press OK. For my ESC the program
knows I already have the Blheli V7 installed and it asked me to continue anyway.

thank you for your fast and valuable answer. now, the shipments from Asia need to arrive here in Germany, (hopefully without delay by the German customs) so I can check it my self.

I will keep you posted if that upgrade of the cheap Hobbyking ESC works, so perhaps a good option for upgrading only the main motor with a C05M and 10A ESC for only ~ 33 USD with shipping...

Regards
