Nano cpx brushless kit installation videos


Hey guys, I installed my mild brushless kit by Asteroid Designs last night and filmed the install. My apologies for mangling the commentary, but I hope it helps someone. The first vid is just an overview of the kit, supplies, and taking apart the heli. The installation starts in part 2.

*note*
For those that decide to keep the motor plug, it is better to mount the esc on the bottom left of the board(looking at the nose) so the plug goes in from the bottom. My canopy was resting against the plug and after a small crash the esc was knocked off the double sided tape.

*note*
You must change your throttle curves to flat across the board. I suggest starting with 60% in normal and 70 to 75 in idle up modes, then tweak from there.

*note*
To arm the esc, turn TH on before plugging in the flight battery. Once the heli initializes, flip TH off, then back on, then you should be ready to fly.

Here's a quick soldering video, wouldn't hurt to check out some other basics vids on youtube if you're nervous about the soldering portion. Hope it helps.

Nice videos. Doesn't seem as hard as I thought it might be.

Now if i can only get a kit in the cart before it's snatched up again!

That is no joke, I think he sold out 10 minutes after I ordered mine. I think they lasted 2 hours, I was very lucky to get mine.

I only tried a couple of 240 packs using mcpx skids and the adapter plug, one hyperion and one thunderpower. It did not like the extra weight. Can't answer the flight time, I landed shortly after the 4 minute timer.

So... with the hyperion 240mAh and Wild kit... how does it fly? Is it too heavy? Will I need a 180mAh hyperion?
