I bought this on New Years eve.. The guy at the LHS let me fly the shop's CX2, and next thing you know, I'm walking out with one... Being that I can't leave well enough alone... I soon started to hop it up a bit. I replaced the motors, the inner and outer shaft, inner shaft/flybar head, the flybar.. etc... The hop ups have made a noticeable difference in it's performance. It's quieter now, and has much more power. I also moved the control rods out a notch on the servo arms to get more control out of it...

I flew it around the gym a few more times, and then I lost interest in it... Poor thing has sat on the shelf since the end of Jan. Why let it go to waste??

It has never been in a "crash" I have tipped it a time or two and have had to replace a few blades. The body has a few cracks in it, most from being removed for modding of the heli. I've put tape on the cracks, and it's held up just fine. When everything is buttoned up, you can hardly see the cracks. I've posted photos of the cracks.

The heli has a very tiny wobble to the top blade. It was like this out of the box. I have replaced the outershaft and later the outershaft and innershaft (with the hop ups) looking for the wobble. While replacing the inner and outer shafts with the vortex gear, I found the problem. The bottom bearing for the inner shaft is bad. The inner race of the bearing is wobbly. This is an easy fix. The part can be found here: http://www.horizonhobby.com/Products...rodID=EFLH1121 This does NOT effect it's flight. It only makes the top blades a bit wobbly at low RPM. It flies just fine the way it is.

Outside of that.. this is in excellent shape. It has very low time on it. In fact the batteries in the TX are still the originals that came with it. It's been sitting, and summer is coming, and I know I wont be flying it anytime soon, and there are other goodies that I'm wanting... So she must go.

$175 for all of it, and I'll ship it to you priority with delivery confirmation.

Looking at the pics, I see I didn't get the CD in any.. Please note: The CD is included!!
