after reading some of the experiences that everyone has had with the CP Pro 2 last night I went to my LHS today and bought one, I had a blade cx and an original blade cp years ago, the original one that came with a Ni-Cad battery.....I never got the old CP off the ground without it falling over .....but I must say that after lots of hours on the Real flight sim and thanks to the fact that the CP Pro 2 is far superior to the original Blade cp I was able to fly it through a full battery in the house without hitting anything !!!! what a difference . I was going to get a Blade MSR because the one my buddy has is pretty fun to fly but I definately made the right choice with the CP Pro 2

now I have something to fly until I can get my JR Venture 50 out this spring

I like the way the tail is holding but would some better servo's on the cyclic help with the inability to hold trims very well, I am constantly adjusting the trims and can't get a very stable hover without constant correction. I realize these are difficult to fly but was wondering if some ino-lab or JR servos would help.

I did some linkage adjustments last night and re-leveled the swash plate / flybar paddles, will hold a hover much better now but I think I will play with the flybar weight placement a litle, its too lazy on the low end of the dual rate and too touchy on the high side. and only being able to hover in my living room doesn't give me much room....It is only 10 degrees with 30 - 40 mph winds outside right now

Do you fly it in Idle up? They get real stable in stunt mode as long as the mechanical adjustments are good. Don't bother with the servos unless you damage one or more of them. If the head is balanced this heli is incredibly smooth.

Is the CP Pro 2 really that much better?

Coming out of heli retirement...

I built a BCPP2 out of an old BCPP. I added the Version 2 motor and a GWS DD motor. I'm not sure what gyro comes stock on the Version 2 but I put a Telebee ($50) HH gyro on mine. This replica of a BCPP2 is much better than the BCPP. The new main brushed motor is great and the DD tail with a GWS 3020 prop holds unbelievably well. So to answer your question, yes it is that much better (at least with a HH gyro like mine or better).

even with the stock gyro the CPP2 is a totally different flying bird than the original. And yes I have flown it a few times in Idle up / Stunt mode and I was amazed at how much more stable it was but the battery doesn't last as long flying in Idle up mode.

Thanks for the tip on the servo's, Since I have gotten the linkage adjustments correct I definately agree with you, It is much better now.

A small price to pay; a shorter flight time. Your esc will run cooler and last longer in 100% throttle mode and the heli is more stable and easier to fly. I'm in normal mode to land and take off only and not just when flying aerobatics but figure 8s and circuits too. Try to stay in stunt mode the whole flight except take offs and landings.

I am only able to fly in my living room because of the weather and switching from standard to stunt mode during flight is a little tricky so I have been switching to stunt mode before lift off

Yea with a stock radio the transition from normal to stunt might be a little jumpy. With a computer radio you can program a throttle
& pitch curve in normal mode that is a seamless transition to stunt mode. Flying in the living room can be tricky so I'd recommend the paper clip mod in place of the retaining pin so if you crash (especially in stunt) you will not damage the electronics. If you don't know what the paper clip mod is, search for it here at RR and if you still have questions we'll help you.

I have a JR XP6102 72mhz radio but I have heard that the smaller helis don't like anything but 2.4ghz because of the possible glitching from a 72mhz. I may get a 72mhz micro receiver anyway and give it a try and see what happens

I fly a stocker with the radio it comes with (72mhz) and have good luck with it.

Just installed a set of super skids and that really stabilized it alot, and it looks alot better also. I have a brushless esc so I think a brushless main motor will be next, hopefully that will increase flight times, should I go with an e-flite BL motor or is there a better choice ?

The first choice is the Neu RZ-350 Razor motor, expensive though ($49). I have a Feigao 1308422S Brushless Motor 4255KV (about $25) in two of my Blade cp pros and like them pretty well. I have no experience with the eflite BL motor but if the price is similar to the Neu, get the Neu Razor. Then you'll need a BL tail motor and my first choice (since Medusa is out of business) is the Tower Hobbies Ammo 12x30 4110kv motor (about $25). Get the Castle Thunderbird 9 as the tail esc.

thanks for the info. The e-flite motor is $47 and doesn't look like a very high quality motor.

Then get the Neu motor and if you like high headspeed use a 10t pinion. A 9t with be plenty of headspeed unless you're a high speed junkie. Use a gy401 gyro for the best tail control. HobbyKing has a clone for about $14 believe it or not that they say is about the same technology as the Futaba 401.
