Can someone tell me if the Stock settings that the manual gives you for your radio are the best for 3d...

My first issue is i feel like my stick is 3/4 of the way up before i get lift... and this may be due to my RHK frame i have on the heli because it requires a 2mm adjustment on the main shaft so the main gear will properly fit the motor....

2nd issue is when i try to flip the heli i just feel like i have no power... or not enough to properly do it...
IS there any upgrades to help this besides going brushless i'm trying to not spend that kind of money?

Did you mean to do that? Yeah its called a crash landing its a new trick

Learn collective management. I can 3D the ish out of my stock mcpx. The less pitch you use to do maneuvers the better. The only upgrade ive done on mine is a microheli metal swash. IMO thats an upgrade every mcpx should have. so much less slop in it.

How much work have you done on the setup? Making sure "zero pitch" is zero pitch and your pitch range is symmetric, for example.

All right, well, simply plugging in the numbers from the manual won't get you there. You need to do some basic heli setup just like you would do on your other helis. First would be to make sure the blades are zero pitch when your collective is at 50%. Second would be to set your collective range. Seems most are ending up somewhere around 70% EPA on the pitch channel for a more reasonable and manageable range. Check for equal positive and negative pitch. Third, set your idle-up throttle curve to flat 100%.

jkos.
I think that you meant 100% throttle curve not pitch curve.

What Jkos said is absolutely correct. Also get some Micro heli or similar 30c or better packs. 300 mah for the stock motor.

If you aren't going brushless then I would recommend you leave the heli totally stock or only add lighter weight parts, because like others have mentioned you need some collective management to "3D" the heli half way decent.

The MCPx in stock form is not a "powerhouse" like most of the modern electric helis are these days

Ijust bought 4 nano-teck's from HK and what a difference in performance from the ones that came with the heli. Believe us when we are telling you that better batteries will make a difference.

I also have been amazed at how big a role the battery play in this heli.

IMO a light-weight brushless setup is the best upgrade for this machine. There are several inexpensive plug and play options available now and the conversion is really easy.

With more power, you don't have to tip-toe around the collective to avoid bogging and the stock tail holds better! Of course, you also need good batteries and lots of them!

Yes, the stock charger would work fine if you're ok with charging one at a time. I prefer to use my 306B with a parallel harness so I can charge six at a time at 2-3C.

i would recommend learning collective management of the mcpx prior to upgrading to a bl setup. you will be that much better when you upgrade.
