I don't have an MCPX to compare, but my 130 is 11" long without the canopy. Which is almost exactly the width of a normal keyboard, seems this is about that size also.

Definitely looks smaller than a 130, perhaps mcpx bl size with a slightly longer boom.

Could be, I just checked and the MCPX is 9.84" in length
and the 130X is 12.0".
I thought the MCPX was smaller by way more than 2".
but I've never even seen one in person...

I know what I was thinking now - that the MCPX was the same size as the Nano.

In the picture with the transmitter, it appears to be about the same length (without canopy) as the width of the transmitter. Definitely smaller than a 130 X.

Will someone take the time to take their 130 canopy off and take a picture of it next to a pen?

This will give a better understanding on the units size.

Unless that is an extra long pen in the pic with the 150, it looks to me like it is more the size of a nano. Definitely smaller than even an MCPX...
which means I'm out!

That is a significant size difference between the T-Rex 150 and Blade 130.

Did anyone notice that the FBL controller has a 4th output for tail. So i would not be surprised if they made a TT version later.

Smaller and lighter is better IMO, much more robust and more indoor friendly.

It is much bigger than a nano, ive just put an almost identical pen next to mine and the blades are only about 2/3 the pens length whereas the 150's blades look nearly the same length as the pen! Also from main shaft to end of tail my nano is about an inch shorter than the pen, the 150 looks slightly longer than the pen!

This is fun!!

Don't make me buy a Nano...
I don't care for indoor flying, but I haven't gone through a winter yet, since starting this hobby.

I've got 'em all (sometimes, unfortunately).
But I will say this, I'm really starting to love the mcpx BL.
Nano is twitchy (of course I'm going to slap a BL conversion on it to make it worse ), the mcpx is underpowered, but the BL is pretty solid even in a decent little wind. I've got several upgrades going on it today that hopefully solve the tail wag (which isn't bad, I just fly through it), so it should be even better.
The 130 is going thru a top to bottom overhaul. Only thing stock will be the servos.
I'm quite sure this 150 is BL size. I'd like to get one, but I'm concerned about weight with those servos. I would think to make up that weight the chassis would have to be super flimsy. Time will tell.
I'd like to see it belt driven, but adding a servo would make the weight situation worse.....

Thinking about the size and the fact they are probably plastic geared servos they probably only weigh about 7g each! As for adding a 7g tail servo, you have to remember that big brushless tail motor would be gone from the tail so that would even it out I would think.
