The two best days of my 130x ownership are the day I bought it and the day I sold it to... Chet

That is the coolest looking MCPX.

I have a 3D heli, I don't understand why it doesn't do 3D.

mcpx bl
I agree there is nothing like a mcpx bl. Deff a great first helicopter and a heli to keep from there on out to have a blast with and learn with.

I had nothing but problems out of all but the nano. Sold them all now the smallest I have is a 300. (which flys great due to beastx)

The mCPX and Nano are great training machines, but I would never bling them out. They crash better in stock configuration.

Thanks. Yes I was going to title my post "don't I have the coolest looking micros!"

Nano was a great training tool too but underpowered

On my MCPX I kept breaking the swash, tail boom and frame so I "blinged"it with Microheli parts from Wow hobbies and I can survive brutal crashes

130x is stock with 450 batteries, CF landing gear and metal gears

The stock canopies had to go. How sweet are these Lynx Fiberglass ones!? They look like micro Logos. Mmmmmmmm micro Logos!!

I have learned many new moves with these that I could do on a sim but wouldn't think of doing on a big hell. Being able to get away with a crash is key to having that extra bit of confidence. Do not get me wrong they are much squirmier than bigger birds, but if you can do maneuvers on these it only gets easier. You cannot crash a 300 hard and get away with it..

I agree u can't crash and get away with it. but i also think i spent more wasted time on micro helis trying to get a good solid tail. even on my 130 it always seemed like tail control was an issue. Then one good wreck and i was back to fighting tail issue again. The 300 for me is cheap and easy. in event of a crash i might be out 30.00 as long as u put good servos and cheap lynx blades. But i do get the micro thing as long as u don't hurt main boards. twice i wrecked my bl mcpx and cost me a main board each time. at a cost of 80.00 a pop.

Ouch! Fair enough. I guess I've been lucky. Never lost a main board and never had any of the tail issues I've heard of with the 130x. These are definitely not stick bangers which has actually helped me with my collective management.

I have the love hate relationship going with mine, a 130X.

Sure wish I had a full time heli fixer on staff... then I would fly them all the time...
