I have to say I am shocked at how much more attention the mCPX is getting from me than I ever thought it would. I can grab the one little box (I carved out the foam in the stock box to fit my TX), and go flying.

The reduced stress level (because of the crashworthiness, low parts count and price) means I am actually enjoying it more than my heli that cost 10 times as much. It has taught me that I don't have to spend a lot of money to have a lot of fun.

Yeah. People generally think of micro Blade helis as indoor machines and are a bit surprised to see one flying out in a 8 mph breeze and flying upside-down.

I'm sure to real serious 3D guys, this is just a toy, but to me, at this point, it seems better than a simulator for getting out of my rut and learning new maneuvers.

I fly my MCPX alot I have the 6 batt charge adapter and 6 batts I love flying it so much. I am thinking about buying another so I can alternate flying them so each has a few minutes of break for cooling from my non stop flying.

I have bigger birds on the bench in need of repair that are just sitting because of my MCPX. I guess they will sit till I get bored of the MCPX.
ENGAGE!!

With DST, thus more chances for it to be light after work, I find that every time I have a chance, I'm taking the mCPX out and flying 3 or 4 batteries. I have gotten more flying time in the past couple weeks (since getting the mCPx) than probably the 6 months prior.

Raptor 50 is collecting dust.

It's not just an mcp x thing...
Last week I made similar comments to my wife about a crappy little $20 air hog helicopter that my parents got me for Christmas 2010. Over the past year that little beater EASILY has 10x the flight time of all my "real" rc helis combined. It's amazing, and sad, when I think about it. I have been seriously thinking of getting an mcp x and selling my 450s (think I'd keep the 500).

Proof that it doesn't really matter what you fly as long as you fly it.

LOL, i thought it was just me
I have a ton of big helis, just got my first mcpx 2 months ago, and now have 4 Brushless MCPX's!!! LOL They are so cheap and fun.
Brushless gave it just what i needed in power to fly like the big guys without fear of remortgaging the house for repairs.

I gotta say, most of the other helis are getting dusty.

Love these little guys!

I have had my mcpx about a year now and bought another V1 used for a brushless conversion with a carbon frame and upgrade swash,blade grips etc. I really like the stock version alot because it required collective management and in some ways reacted abit like my 13+ pound Min Air Gassers. It was a dream come true the mcpx and still is. Although in non perfect weather that makes me not to pack up my elephants into the car and drive 10 miles to the field ,,I can simply go to my backyard and fly my 2 mcpx's!! I do so much more on these little things than on my mega buck elephants. Does this mean I have replaced my big heli's for the mcpx? NO!! I want to fly my big buck heli's like I do my little mcpx's!!!
My intention to do well well on gassers still stands. I have not forgotten my dream . The mcpx is a great tool for confidence .
Setup is everything, All my heli's can fly far better than I can pilot them

I took the Raptor 50 and all the support gear (fuel, flight box, etc) and my nice little self contained mCP X box to the field today. I ended up flying around 10 batteries (lost count) in the mCP X and brought all that glow stuff back home without using it.

I can't believe how much more I am enjoying the mCP X (even in wind). I am finally out of the same ol' rut I've been in skill-wise for a few years and really starting to enjoy making leaps in progress with my flying. I am dialing in the radio setup and things are really starting to click.

I think a lot of it is knowing that if I get all out of shape, I can just flip the throttle hold, pick it up out of the grass, and keep flying without the need to buy parts. Just knowing that I have an "out" allows me to relax and try new stuff. I end up not crashing or even flipping the throttle hold.

Sure, new "moves" look sloppy the first few times, but then they start to smooth out and I can really see significant improvement.

THIS IS SO MUCH FUN!!

I had a few Raptor 50's nice machines! But I got sick of the oily goop all over everything,,the starting equipment ,,starter,,the glow driver ,,glow plugs,,paper towel ,windex ,making sure everything is charged,and last but not least the high cost of 30% nitro fuel and then fumigating the whole area with smoke.
So I went to gassers with each having it's own onboard generator to power everything including charging the tiny RX backup battery. I fuel and go with no charging all day.
No goop everywhere and the best part is the fuel is under 4 bucks a gallon.

The reason I didnt go crazy with the power on my MCPX is I wanted it simular in some way [like needing collective management] to my 13 pound gassers.
