First let me say I have been flying helicopters for years...
When I was trying to up the power on a Honey bee 2 I went to a brush less motor for more power...Then even with nodded two tail motors,,, it wouldn't hold the tail with that power ..
So , how does this work on this setup...?

**Now doing Forward Flight And EASY 3d! And having a Ball !!**

Why are you going to be rude to me?
Please don't be offended, that was not my intention. I simply want to make it clear that discussion about any other radio is irrelevant to me.
Honestly, how would changing to a brushless motor have any effect on how your transmitter works with something? Your question makes no sense whatsoever.
With a computer radio you must define a pitch and throttle curve. You can not do this with the DX4e. So because of this limitation i want to know if the upgrade makes any difference using the DX4e.

I personally find it extremely difficult to bog the heli using the DX4e which leads me to wonder if getting the brushless upgrade will make much difference since i can't change the pitch or throttle curve.

Yes, it'll bind to any of them. I bound mine to some HoobyKing clones to test them and it worked fine. I think I read that it is even Dsmx.
Cool, perfect, thanks!
There is hope for this dx4e in some other models around the house then.
I didn't purchase it for nothing!

Edit: here we go. Orange receivers.

Awesome. Now add a V-tail mixer and my combat wing is back in action.
Also MIA bumble bee v2

cessna151 you will be able to adjust the pinion size still to help with headspeed a bit if it's too much when you go brushless?

Upgrading to brushless makes a lot of difference.
Battery life and efficiency are two improvements I'd imagine besides the power.

casey, you'll be pleased to know that the DX4e is actually a 5 channel radio. The "AUX" or idle up switch controls the 5th channel on a standard receiver.

Good to know!
See this is why I have to butt in and start confusing people otherwise I'll never understand either.

j/k, Thanks!

I bought some crash parts today at LHS and I don't even have the heli yet.

They want to order me a V2 but I think I already have a V1 on the way.

I got some blades to play with for now. Eeets tiny!
Gonna print some canopies from the freak.

Already found threads about this myserious theSteve converter and a DC/DC step down I can hook to my CC10esc. I just need a motor and a pinion and I'll be brushless 2 cell I think?*
Or I have one cell cc10 also.

This will be fun I like SMT soldering stuff and modifying electronics.
Throw in the fact it's on a flybarless micro heli that supposedly operates this good for fairly cheap and I'm in.

my 2 cents is that the dx4e worked well but i flew better with the 6i due to the ability to alter curves for the pitch and throttle. i felt it made a big difference being able to cater the heli to MY flying style a little more.

Expo/endpoints/ATV would probably help too on a small heli like this.

Whew just took delivery of my mcpx and flew it!
Sweet little heli. Flies great!
All I need to do is even the pitch out some and balance the rotor head assembly. Slight vibe and uneven pitch out of the box.

Other than that I'm pretty dang impressed at how stable it is!
Well done E-flight. Hats off to the guys in engineering.

Haven't flown in 2 years or so. Grinning from ear to ear
Just got baked off that mcpx.

Now to figure out how to wire the 4e TX up to my old futaba reflex sim cable.

totally agree, i forgot about those, plus the digital trims cant get bumped on the 6i. you can move the trims on the 4 channel and not notice it until you start flying. i actually glued the trims to the case in the center to stop me from bumping them.

I was thinking I may do the same but I might use this radio for other aircraft.

The rudder trim would be one to leave unglued. It seems like my first few flights were trimmed out by a click or two of left rudder trim.
Each time I rebind, the board has what I would call a "hair" of drift that I can solve with a click of trim.

In a hover that is. I need to take it outside or in the den room and do some FFF. I crashed into my bass guitar in my room five times and nothing broke. Haven't looked the bass over yet. lol

i have found that the tail does not really improve much going to brushless. sometimes i go back to brushed because the tail holds better with the decreased power.
