The ones who have the Twister X can write some opinions?
Is it worth??

Whan about the speed controller? Does it work well in governor mode?
Is it easily set-up?

Yes I love my twister with the MS 116 ESC. I dont need to use the governer. Flies strong for 3d with the tp 1320 and the apogee 1050 lipo's.

What sort of flight times are you getting with the TP1320s, and what is the AUW?

MS 116 esc not any programing to worry about just plug and play , only have to select normal or governor mode.

The MS 116 works very well with the twister and so far no emf interference on the receiver .

You won't need a lipo volt cutoff and probaly shouldn't have one on these micro helis. Because of micros light weight, they do not like to auto and I don't recommend anyone try unless they got the money and/or the balls. Anywho... when I fly my H2, it is quite clear when the battery is getting low. As for the governor mode, it is very different than say the phoenix 10. With the MS116, in governor mode, you run the helicopter and set the throttle you want. You leave it at that setting for 8 seconds and don't move it throughout the flight and that'll be your set rpm. Hope this clears things up a bit.

Of course you need cut off.....
You need cut off because if you don't have cut off the battery (Like Tunder Power) can go down after 9v and you ruin your battery.
That's the reason that I am selling my MS116 to get Phoenix 10.
I with my MS116 fly only five minutes and than charge because I don't want to taks a risk to ruin the life time of the Tunder Power.

hmmm? I have flown about 40 flights on my H2 with the MS116...I fly until I notice it getting 'soft' and I stop. I HAVE NOT ruined my Thunder Power, nor my Apogee Lipo packs. They are still in perfect working order.

I don't think it is very wise to change MS116
for PH10 with twister motor. PH10 cannot
satisfactory govern this motor and make
lots of interference. I actually sold my PH10
and bough MS116 controller. I am much
happier now. With TP1320, I fly 9 to 10 minutes
and then charge. More that 60 flights on the
pack and still not perforamnce problems.
If you have the low voltage fobia, you can buy
some lipo-safe which will signal you when to
land but I don't think it is necessary at all
if you tx has a timer.

Yeah, cause with my H2, it gets quite obvious when the voltage gets around 10v. It still flies but not as much fun. I see no need for a voltage cutoff cause if it does cut off and you're 100 feet up, YOU'RE SCREWED. I'd rather have a ruined battery than a ruined helicopter.

You can actually put a lipo saver between the battery and esc, its very small (only 2 grams) and warns you when your 3s pack reaches 9v with a led or audible tone. Then you can land safely without surprises and still take good care of your batteries.
