I got 7 on the 450 and 7 on the mCPx today.

Friends don't encourage friends to fly helis! It can cause part shortages.

sorry for the delay in posts
been busy cleaning up spills in the kalamazoo river again.... sigh

at least I made it in the news this time! lol

on a side note, after dragging the boom through the water for a while, I seriously started thinking that a better alternative would have been a bigger rc boat, with a 10 foot section of dry boom looped around the back of the boat to collect the sheen... lol

goes to show you that you can apply rc stuff to anything. lol

here is the news article, im the second guy on from the left <Joe Learn>

Hey Dave, haven't seen you in awhile. I was thinking about the new 7200bx for a new machine, but then I have to get a voltage regulator and governor so I might just use the AR7100R and just get the beast X separately. Now if they would make one device that has it all, which I'm sure is on the horizon, they'd have a heck of a following, I for one hate all the wiring, I could spend hours trying to visualize where to put it all!

I got a interview today at work. Why I put in for this job is beyond me. 3rd shift! How do I get out of this one? I could retire and fly MCPX's off my back porch for the rest of my days.

OR is that something that is exclusive to electrics? I'm a bonehead when it comes to helis that don't burn nitro.

Hey Sonny,long time no see
hope you feeling better
I hav a multigov laying around and probably get a western robotics tail servo regulater
the other servos will work with LiFe voltages fine

i just wish the 7200bx had heavy gauge battery wire
it must be so it will work on mini helis without extra weight

Bill, you are on 2nd shift now, right? Just tell em, "Never Mind!"
I'd have to do some reading up to see if that Castle regulator would do the job, It might. I already have the AR7100r just not sure how that would hook up with the Beast X. I think they both require the gear channel. Hmm,
You know anything about them Dave?
I'm feeling a little better, I don't have to stop and sit down every 30 steps but still recovering from the chemo treatments, I go next month for a check up so we'll see! The desire to fly is there, but the motivation to get stuff together to do it suffers! That's why I'm thinking about a new Synergy N5c, maybe that will get the juices flowing!
Both of yours are down Bill?
