I am transitioning from RC offroad racing into flying. I got my hands on an MCX and a MSR (to cold to fly out side) and I am using the box stock controllers. The MSR is very touchy with the stock controller and I wanted to know how big of a difference in control should I expect going from the stock controller to a DX6i. Any input would be appreciated.

Well with a DX6i you can add some expo to soften the sticks. BTW, I have a brand new in the box for sale if interested.

The difference is night and day....Literally a different heli with a computer radio and is sometimes the difference in being able to fly and not.

You'll be able to really dial in the helis to fly much softer or more aggressive.

I literally never use the word literally right.

Thanks for the feed back. I find that the MSR can be a handfull it is very sensitive and I am not sure if it is the controller or the heli itself. It could just be me though.

I used to have a MSR and didn't find it to be a handful unless you start to really throw it around.

the MCX is docle yes and the MSR can be a handful with the RTF radios yes get a DX6I at least if plan on continuing with rc flight will be a great help down the line as you advance to larger planes and or heli's all the RTF radios have full control end points maybe some slight dual rates but no expo and with the computer radios you can actually cut end points use dual rates and expo big help IMO

wife says if i'm going to be an addict at least its to a heli

The 6i will take you a long way down the road.

I got the DX6i yesterday after the input I was seeing and I am glad I did, so far. After some adjustments I really mellowed out the MSR and it is way more manageable, I will make it more aggressive as I get use to flying it. As for the MCX I made it more aggressive making it more fun to get around the house as well. Also I don't know if it is just me or not but it doesn't seem like I need to make as many throttle adjustment to keep both helicopters at one height, how ever that could just be me. Either way so far the DX6i is a very positive experience. Thanks for the input everyone.

if you have them both setup as directed by the manuals in airplane mode the throttles should be linear and must just be in the pilot if in heli mode how did you setup your curves

Mcx vs msr
In regards to throttle sensitivity with the mcx over the msr. Any coax heli will be more stable over a single rotor. It's even more different when you go to a collective pitch heli. That's when things really change. Be patient and play with the settings on the radio. Some settings will not have any effect until you get a cp heli.

Easy on the stick...
