I just had to post about this.

About a 2 months ago, I picked up a Blade nano CP X (I live in the NE, was getting cabin fever) to fly in my house. I have a finished basement with a pool table, so there is a decent amount of room, just a lower ceiling.

I have a Blade MCPX BL, Trex 150 and now this NANO. I have to say, this thing is off the charts amazing (for indoors). The one downside is power. Not that you really need it indoors, but you need it to quickly flip inverted, bank lift and direction changes really make this thing struggle.

However, by far the most durable heli I've ever owned. I've probably crashed the thing 20 times, no damage. inverted bank into the wall, - no damage. Most crashes come from the lack of power. Really doesn't like to change direction quickly if you are used to the more powerful micro's (like the MCPX BL or Trex 150).

I hope they come out with a brushless version (not the upgrade, I want a BL tail motor too!) If you guys haven't bought one of these yet, do it. You will not regret it. SUPER fun.

I love my Nano. Like you mentioned it lacks power but I fly it just about every night indoors and it helps my skills tremendously. I used to use the sim daily but with the Nano it gives me the chance to fly a real model even though it's small. My other Blade models were money pits but not the Nano.

I know they have the upgrade, I want a full brushless version, main and tail motors

I use to fly my nano indoors quite a bit. Being able to flip it inverted in my living room was a big milestone. That being said, I think a brushless version would do more damage. I'm picturing wall scrapes and scratched tv screens. Just something to think about.

I love flying, I hate gravity.
