i need help with my cx2. I bought the bladecx2.com kit with everything except the battery. I keep on getting blade strikes even with the taller outer shaft. has anyone found a way to solve this problem? I tried shortening the flybar but it made it very loose so i put the stock on back on. Any recommendations because spending $150 ON THIS KIT AND IT DIDN'T SOLVE THE PROBLEM

Man that is a bummer when you buy a product that is supose to fix a problem but it does nothing. There is no real way that I'am aware of to fix blade strikes with out the length between the upper and lower blades to be more sperated. I have heard of this problem with there products from people before. What I would do is make sure it is in good shape and sell it or just let it sit. What you want is a product threw Cryohobby.com they have an amazing drive system that I run and it handles 10 to 15 mph winds all day long also got a new 3 cell brain for them. Oh also now that I thought of it you could try some tape under your stock blades (a strip the length of the blade) like the packaging kind with lines threw it I have seen a guy do that and it keeps the blades from flexing that will pry fix it instead of spending more money.

I upgraded my cx2 with the longer shaft and blades that fold back now. Is that what you got? I haven't had a problem with blade strikes since then but I am still not happy with the setup, I am now getting toilet bowl affect and less control.

I have decided my problem is I am trying to do more with this heli then it was made for. It is simply for teaching someone new, not for aggressive flying. I like it because I don't have time to get good with my Trex, and the blade cp is the greatest thing some days, and a cursed devil machine other days. I think the new Hirobo Quark is more inline if you want something easy to fly, cheap to repair and good for low wind flying,

Back to your problem, if you have the blades that fold back you can get blades from another counter rotater that are shorter and stiffer. Check them out at your lhs, I found some that by being shorter and stiffer I think they spun just a little faster to lift off which helped the handling some.

Good luck

I found out that the toilet bowl will also come from your little link that hooks your fly bar to your grips. If it has the slightest bend in those little links it will cause that plus if your fly bar is a little sticky in the movement action it will cause it to.
I run cryohobbies cryodrive, cryoflybar, aluminum blade grips and extreme blades and with some setup and little tweaking it fly's twice as good as before.Also check the distance beween your blades with my setup they are almost three and a quarter inches apart.
Hopefully some of these things can help you all out.

Hey guys I think one of you answered on question. If you are constantly getting blade strikes, then you Are doing more than heli is built for. Not bad thing though that means time to move up to maybe Blade 400 or do like I did and plunge into trex450. You will never look back.You can get a used trex450 RTF for about same as new Blade400! Or get the totally awsome trex500! Good luck

Ok it is not the blades that hit together.... it is the flybar and the lower blades. If you are at a high bank corner then you have agood chance of them hitting together.
