I'd been toying around with the idea of building a brushless MCPX but figured before I even had a chance to finish it they would likely be offering a brushless V2. I was thrilled today to see the news about the V2 release, I had my credit card out before the link even opened up. Then I read the changes.....

Version 2 Changes:
- Digital 3-Axis AS3X Sensor (Cool, I think)
- Large Diameter Tail Rotor (Not motor but ROTOR...about $1.99 right?)
- Swashplate Ball Link Dampers (boring)
- 1S 200mAh 30C Battery (boring)

Is that worth an additional $50 premium? Sounds more like a version 1.1 to me. The worst part is I know before the weekend is over I will have given in and ordered one

We'll have to wait for V3 for brushless.

the v2 actually flys very good and is worth the purchase I think. With an extended boom this thing will do just about anything.

How much better do you think this will fly VS the one out now? I had the MCPX and I did not like it at all.

I like my mcpx but I have made some improvements to make it fly better. I think I will stick with that for a while. I don't see a need (at least for me) to run right out and get the new one.

i didn't care for the stock version at all. a brushless conversion is a whole different animal. i love mine. SR120 tail upgrade is about mandatory for brushless, too. so, calculate in another $20 on top of the brushless conversion.

if it ain't broke, break it.

I'm a little pissed as is at the moment. I never did anything but hover and fly back and forth in my friggin house. All of a sudden I got pulsing from the main rotor almost like low voltage cut off but I noticed one of the FETS burned up on the board. I JUST bought it in in the end of September/beginning of October from a LHS vendor on site and was on my 10th flight when it happened. HH yet again wants proof of purchase sent in with it in order to "investigate" whether it's under warranty or not. I do understand they have to protect themselves but I don't think the damn thing should have went out so fast. I'm just butt hurt over it at the moment but I don't think I'll be buying another Blade product.

Mine is less than a month old and a servo burned out already. Sucks.
