Yes I am using the stock 4n1 Rx half but not the gyro/esc half. I am using a GWS PG03 Gyro, GWS ESC for the tail and a CC Thunderbird 18 for the Park 370. I have a DX6 in my TRex I just need another Rx for it so I can use it for the CP as well. I had the DX6 in it before and the results were very good.


I did find out something today that may have somethign to do witht he stock radio. I did some backflips with it today and it seemed to take up ALOT of room just to complete the maneuver. Much, much more than my TRex. I was just wondering if anybody else has experienced this? Seemed like maybe the stock settings in the radio didnt offer enough deflection to make the heli flip tightly or something. FFF is awesome though. The heli is smooth, stable and fast. If anybody has any suggestions other than just buying another Rx for my DX6 that might give me more movement at the swash or the ability to adjust it, I am all ears.

Finally solved my dual tail issue
I recently purchase a micro heli dual tail setup for my blade cp. I bought it when I bought my new brushless setup, thinking that I would need more tail with the more powerful main motor. From the first flight with the MH tail I had issues cooking tail motors. I had completely tapped out my LHS on their E-Flite tail motors. All this time I have been running Align rotor blades that I cut down and reshaped. They worked great with the stock motor. I was so fed up with the tail issue that I even went plank shopping for a plane to use my new Park 370 BL I bought for the CP. I finally figured out that the slight extra weight of the trimmed Align blades was too much for the tail to counter-tourque..(?? verbage ??) so anyways I went to my LHS yesterday and bought 2 of the shorter GWS tail motors (they were out of E-Flite motors) and some stock blades. Got to my shop, fitted everything and VOILA! the cp flies better than it ever has. I am so glad I didn't go with the plank or even a BL tail. I just thought I would pass this along as some of the people having the same type of issues may be having them for similar reasons. I love my CP again..

CP Aluminum Gear on Ebay..
Anybody tried this yet??
Ebay Auction Link
Durable aluminum gear lasts the life of the helicopter.
Can be diassembled for easy replacement of the shaft
Gear does not flex, improves stability and responsiveness
Better, smoother and more efficient transfer of power from drive gear
No more waiting weeks for replacement gears that wear our after only a few hours of use.
Strong high-carbon steel shaft survives more crashes without bending.

Awesome. Thanks guys. I am used to doing the same thing with my old main and current tail setup because I was using the GWS esc's. They required the same odd startup.
I forgot to mention I too am using a PG-03.
Ok I am going with a BL tail this weekend and putting the dual tail setup on ebay..
A couple of more ??'s..
What prop are you guys using??
and
Has anybody ever tried a 3 blade prop?
Thanks again..

I have been on the seperates train for a while. I never bought a replacement 4n1 when my original took a dive..
I was running GWS speedos, DX6, stock motors..
Now I got a CC18, Park 370, DX6, and a Dual Tail from MicroHeli.
So did the BL tail solve your issues?
Does it fly better?
What esc are you using?
and
Whats the difference between the short and the long motors?

Please let me know as I am trying to get my CP ready for winter when we fly indoors most of the time. I just dont want to keep the LHS in business by buying up all the stock tail motors.. lol

Thanks.

I am also having this problem. I switched to a park 370 for the main and a MH Dual motor tail. The first flight was awesome, the heli felt 10 times better. The second flight, I lost the tail, the motors were super hot and now they need replacememnt.
Has anybody ever went with w DD Brushless tail? Like the gold one on the left from HelioHobby? I am getting sick of this tail issue and dont really want to switch over to a belt drive rear... yet..

I went that route and bought the bare bones. You might not use all the extra's right then but, eventually you'll be glad you did. I basically stripped down the wrecked one, put all the electronics in the new and the parts from the old one filled my spares box.

I do my homework all over the internet. Primarily using Google. You should try it, awesome search engine.
I agree that LiPo's can be a pain, they are nothing compared to the older race only NiCad packs from a few years ago. Years ago when i first started racing nitro it was because of the same reason. Waiting on a charge, motor maintenance etc. I quickly learned though that nitro is even more of a maintenance hog. With the vibration and the fuel spray, not mention glow plugs and engine tuning. it was just a big turn off. I raced it though because I had to. I learned alot for those few years. I also leaned that nitro was a pita.. i much prefer plug and play.
I dont know, it comes down to a matter of opinion I suppose but I think your 50 class heli may be feasible sooner than 5 years down the road.

Now back on topic.. If you have an opinion concerning the TRex vs the Blade CP do a search. There are plenty of other threads out there that one can discuss that type of comparison. When somebody is asking a BCP/CX specific question and somebody chimes in "buy a TRex", it gets old.. I dont think I read anywhere where myself or any of the other posters above wrote "How should I spend my money".. If we needed an opinion about spending our personal finances than we will be sure to post a thread about it and ask for a public opinion. Until then it would be nice to be able to have a discussion over a heli that some of us do have a use for without a push from somebody who has nothing better to do than badger us with unwanted opinions.
Thanks and have a nice day.

As well as cleaner and no glow plugs to worry about, fuel, starter, etc.. Trust me been there done that.. 20+ years in the hobby business..
With the new technology that is being used in other areas batteries are getting cheaper and powerful at an alarming rate. As it is right now if one were to do their homework, they get an electric heli for a comparable cost to a nitro and still be cheaper, cleaner and easier in the long run. Do your homework..

The blade is cheap to fix but a TRex isnt very much more to fix. The parts for the TRex are cheap but the BCP are cheaper even more. The BCP is a great flier, especially indoors where wind isnt much of a factor. I own both. Learned on a BCP and then went to a TRex. IMO for right now get a BCP, when your buy a TRex..

Yea I saw some of the tail parts that are supposed to be included on a thread here on RR. I am defiantely waiting until somebody buys one and does a review or something on it.
I have heard (dont know first hand) that the original billet head that was offered by almost all of the big heli outlets was a sloppy pile.. So I am going to wait and see if this one is any better.

Check the replacable shaft in the aluminum cx head. Some of them were not inserted all the way into the aluminum piece. Loosen the set screw, push it in the head all the way, might have to tap it on the table, and go from there. On ours the shaft fell out of the aluminum head when we pulled it out of the package. I just reinserted it and tightened the set screw.

Why because I want a good heli that I can fly in a small space easier. I love my TRex but, when I fly in the building next to my shop, the TRex is just too big. I can take my BCP in there and actually fly it around rather than just hop and hover and piro's.. So I want a machine that is small, and capable.

When I was talking about burning up my 4n1 because I flew too many batteries in succession was the day that I got the hang of FFF. I was so excited that I couldnt stand it and flew and flew and flew. battery after battery. I was having a blast. What I am saying is that i too was getting kinda discouraged before my FFF light bulb came on in my head. Tail in hover and sideways hover was getting boring. I was scared of FFF at first and then I just did it and WOW!! The hobby has taken on a whole new meaning for me. One thing I can say that the rewards are worth the trials you go thru to get there. I cant describe the feeling I had when my CP went knife edge and carved a turn..

Not saying it is his fault at all. I was simply sharing the experience that I had with my 4n1's before I went with seperates. All I am tryign to convey is dont give up on the hobby because of a burnt 4n1 unit.

Since he is talking about his 4n1 unit burning up and then saying "Now I'm out of commission. I wish I never got into this hobby." one would tend to assume that he is wanting to quit because of the bad 4n1.

Awwww cmon now, you cant blame everythig bad on one 4n1 unit. It happens all the time. I knwo I have burned up 2 of them now. the first one I didnt know any better and I didnt take the proper steps to keeping it cool. the second one I just flew too many batteries in succession without letting the unit cool between flights.

I am sure that E-Flite used thread lock. I would try a true 1.5mm wrench. As for the blade grips. Just be sure your changing a 2 bearing for a 2 bearing or a three bearing for a three bearing. Some of the older kits came with 2 bearing blade grips and the newer ones hav the updated 3 bearing grips. Just be sure your grips are exactly what you bought. they look the saem but the recess in the middle is different.

Anybody here using a ducted fan tail?
A buddy of mine has one that he bought and never used. I would like to buy it but was wondering what they were like..
Do they give the heli better tail authority?
Are they easily broken?
I am just looking for some insight before I buy.
Thanks.

Some of this may sound stupid but hey its a process of elimination..
1.) Are you turnng the wrenches the right way?
2.) Did you use loctite the last time you worked on it?
3.) If worse comes to worse and you are replacing the blade grips anyways, you could slot the top of the bolt and makie it into a norma flat head screwdriver slot.

Those are the same servos as what come with the Spektrum radio. they have centering issues, slop issues, and twitch issues (what you have). Replacing the servo is an option. However, I would consider a different servo. I had the ones that came with my Blade, they were fine, until the LR went out. I sent it in, got a replacement and it was fine. I bought a Spektrum radio. I put the servo's in my TRex.. They quickly died. I sent them back to Horizon who told me that only one of them was bad. they sent me three that I had back plus one new one. The new one was broken out of the box. I gave up on them. Threw them in a box, replaced the servo's in my Rex with HS56's and all the problems were solved. Just for the record, I kno how to set EPA's as well.
So dont be discouraged, they are just hella cheapo servos.

I followed the same thing on helihobby. Sounds like your Revo is not set right. My Revo with throttle up is a negative number and on throttle decrease it is a positive number. You might check that.

Yes they ahve an enormous amount of slop. They are the same servos that come witht he DX6. I sent mine back to Horizon because they got soooo sloppy over a very short period of time. I didnt know that the HS55 geas were a direct replacement, that makes me wonder if HiTec manufactures them for Horizon.. Oh and yes the HS55 is a HiTec servo.

Yea well I made some from the plastic blades that came with the TRex. Yes they are indestructible. Problem is when you do crash, the blades are intact but nothing else is. The impact forces have to go someplace. I considered it a lesson learned and will be going with the wood ones next time around, simply because they will break if need be.

I geared down to a 9 tooth, put in a new mild brushed mod, played with the pitch and voila she flew.. Very well too I might add. It seems as though the heli got way more responsive, which may have just been the higher head speed.
At one point it reacted faster than I did and I stuffed it..
Good thing is the blades didn't break but the boom and chassis are toast as well as the spindle and main shaft too I bet. It took a hard hit. I will fix it tomorrow and try it again. Hopefully this time I can take it outside, if the wind here in North Texas would just stop for a few minutes.

Keep the stock servos, they are fine for a Blade CP, nothing else though..
GWS-100 for main motor (they have 2 one for lipo, one for nickel)

GWS PG-03 Gyro

That conbination has worked great for me. I got the idea and the know how from an article posted on helihobby. Its cheap too.

Well I tried it with the plastic blades.
First off they are too heavy. I burned up a motor trying them. (Not a big deal it was an old one just for this experiment)
They did balance nicely.
They fit the grips, except fot the hole.
The TRex blades are narrower then the CP blades.

My conclusion is that yes they CAN work and might work if they had more power spinning them. It was simply an experiment. For things to be right they do need to be the pro woods and if I am going to buy wood blades anyways then I will stick with the E-Flite blades. I was looking for a way to make a semi unbreakable blade. Unbreakable by Blade CP standards anyways. If I try it again I will try it with a Mamba in it gear waaaaaay down.

I realize the plastic blades from Align are junk, hence the reason they aren't on my TRex.. I fly pro woodies right now on it.
Back to the BCP..
I know I need to rebalance and all that, I was just wondering if anybody had done it yet. I think they are really close to the same width. The BCP blades look really wide to me for some reason. I would use Align woods but, the whole purpose it to have plastic damn near unbreakable blades.. I am going to do some comparing tonight and see what i come up with. I'll post results.

TRex Blades on a Blade CP
I was wondering if I took the plastic blades that came with my TRex (the yellow ones) and cut them down to the proper length for my Blade CP would they work? I know the root is probably too thick but, I was ust sitting here at work and it hit me. I dont have the parts in front of me at the moment, so right now I am just curious.
Has anybody else ever done anything similar to this?
I am basically using my Blade CP as a test/stunt machine and need as much durability in the blade department as i can get.
Are there any plastic blades currently manufactured that will work on the BCP?

I started out with a Blade CP as well and learned alot from it.
I then bought a TRex. Best thing besides buying a sim that I have done yet. Dont get me wrong, I love my Blade CP. (I just bought it back to the guy I sold it too, I actually missed it ). My Blade CP is all seperates. I went seperates when my 4-1 died.
Rather than a brushless I went with a hotter 370
Venom Fireball
ESC's
GWS-50 for tail
GWS-100 for main
GWS PG-O3 for Gyro.
I bought a DX6 for a radio.
The BCP flies great with that combo. The ESC's are cheap $12-14 each and the gyro was cheap as well @ $35. I was going to need a radio anyways for when I decided to upgrade to a bigger heli so I bought the DX6.
Basically I improved my BCP and had a radio for my next bird. I fly them both from the same radio. I understand what you guys are saying about skipping the whole BCP upgrade process and going right into a TRex but, by having seperates on my BCP first I learned alot about throttle/pitch curves, general radio set up, and of course how to fly a little more stable machine than I previously had.
Just my .02....

To me one of the best things about the switch is the belt driven tail. No more adjustment of the tail all the time. That in itself is a massive improvement. You can upgrade the head, chassis, landing gear, etc.. But its still a blade. Just a better blade..

My first "real" heli was a blade cp as well. All of my friends bought cx's and I told them that I didnt want to have to re-learn how to fly all over again when I made the switch to a bigger heli and boy was I right. Some of them transitioned to the cp with failing results. Myself and a couple of others who bought cp's from the start are waaaay ahead in terms of skill than the cx owners. I recently went to a T-Rex simply because I wanted to fly outside more and the winds in North Texas can be not so nice. So far I can fly my T-Rex outside with minimum difficulty. It is soooo much smoother than BCP was on the calmest of days. It has been my experience that the T-Rex isn't much more to fix than a blade. Which is one thing that led me to the upgrade. My BCP was already converted to seperates and it flew very well, not nearly as stable as my T-Rex but I can honestly say that the instability issues and the twitchy nature of the Blade CP definately helped my learning a great deal when I switched to the T-Rex.

The DX6 was $189 at my LHS
I went with a :
GWS-100 esc for the main motor
GWS-50 esc for the tail motor
GWS PG-03 Gyro
My BCP flew great like this and with the DX6 I could change pitch values and alter the mixing to suit me. Granted the radio was the most expensive part but the gyro was $35, the GWS-100 was $14 and the GWS-50 was $12. I temporarily put the gyro into my T-Rex and it works fine so I carried it on to the next level along with the radio. So really I made a long term investment into my equipment. When I will only be out $35 on the gyro.

I love it. The RX is super tiny and lightweight. the servos are great for the CP but are kinda junky for anything else. I have it in my TRex now and its great!! I fly inside of a large metal warehouse and it is known for inducing glitches. With the DX6 I havent had one glitch. Like my car radios it is solid and glitch free. I highly reccomend it. The only thing that would make it better IMO would be a backlit screen and 5 point curves rather than 3 point. However the 3 point works fine I just can't see the screen at night. Yes I fly at night ALOT because the winds here in North texas die down alot at night time.

I dont know if I had everything setup right but my BCP flew great this way. I am using a Spektrum DX6 and I had -100% up and +80% down. I was also using a Venom Fireball and sym blades with the stock 8 cell and GMS ESC's and a stock tail motor.

I made some on the CNC from Carbon Fiber. I just logged onto HeliHobby, found the ones I liked, scaled the picture to the dimensions they gave, traced them in AutoCAD and voila. Instant tail fins. I'll try and post some pics this weekend some time.

This may seem pretty stupid but, how do you change the battery or access the electronics? Is the body meant to come off the heli in 2 pcs?

In the RC Car world, we dead short our Nickel's after every run. Yes dead short. This is to bring the pack down to 0 or as close to it as possible. I have been cycling my stock 8 cell NiMh battery packs since I got them and the capacity has improved quite a bit. I get 750 to 800 mah per charge on a 650 mah battery. I run it in the heli until I cant fly it anymore, discharge it on my charger to 1.5 volts, and then I dead short it for a while. It will get warm but it shouldn't get hot. While this does sound completely unconventional car racers have been doing this for years. I started using this method when NiMh batteries first hit the car scene. Anyways FWIW thats my method.
AAnother tid bit is that NiMh batteries do not like heat, as most batteries don't. However the bad effects to the cells internals are worse with NiMh than they are with Nicad's. If you are doing alot of bac to back charging. I reccomend using an ice pack (like the gel ones at the grocery store) set it on top of the battery during charging and the battery will stay cooler and charge better.

True however, usually if its right then its quiet. Either way I just thought I'd pass along the tip. If the gear mysteriously dies after 15 or so flights then i will most certainly post up that i made a mistake and move on but, as for now its silky smooth and has no issues.
Back on the topic though...
I really do like the Venom motor. It seems to do the job very well. Years ago Kyosho had a 370 size open endbell motor thati believe was for airplanes. Has anybody tried anything like this? just curious if it has the power or not.

1/10 and 1/12th scale rc pinions are in fact 48 pitch. Some are even 64 and 32 as well. Thats not the case with 1/18th scale pinions. 23 years of rc car racing has taught me how to read a pitch gauge and they are in fact the same pitch. I am running one now and its super quiet and I was able to set a perfect mesh. I want to try an X-Ray M18 pinion next as they are plastic and should be even quieter. I looked at a 48 pitch pinion and your right, they are not 48 pitch but, neither are the pinions in my 1/18th scale box.

I have already went the seperates route with all GWS stuff and a DX6. I got a good deal on the equipment. Tonight I tried a Venom Fireball that I had in my 18th scale car box and WOW its awesome, I put a 10 tooth pinion on it. BTW in case nobody has found out or posted this but standard 18th scale set screw pinions will mesh perfectly with the stock main gear. I pulled off the label and added my heatsink so it will prob be fine as far as heat goes. I really like it. Of course run time is a little less but the flying is awesome.
I also have a couple of the mods from Losi that are option motors for the Mini LST and may try one of those next.

has anybody tried a different 370 class replacement motor? Like something from Losi or Peak or reedy. Nothing brushless, just a little more power.

Thats the updated 3 bearing blade grips. They are supposed to help with the sticky collective issues I think. Since there are three bearings in the blade grip it uses a different length spacer.

I used a Spektrum DX6 Radio and the same electronics as stated in that article and I am very pleased with the results so far.

I used:
GWS ICS-100 main motor
GWS ICS-50 tail motor
GWS PG-03 Gyro
Spektrum Servos (Came with the radio)
Stock 370 motor
8 cell NiMh
Stock Tail motor

I almost have it perfect, IMO anyways. I am learning about how the CCPM and the Revo mixing affect things. So far so good. The only issue I have is that the GWS main rotor esc has a brake function. I need to figure out how to make that go away because its naty when you drop the throttle. I got to let it spin down until its really low and then kill the throttle. If I dont the brake kicks in and brings the main rotor to a halt. So I have been flying the heli in Stunt mode with normal mode settings. The reason for this is that if the main esc detects anything other than 0 on the throttle then it wont arm. So I start the heli in Normal mode and then fly in stunt mode. With stunt mode I can program it to be 15% throttle at Low Stick. and it doesnt hit the brakes.
Other than that I love it.
I'll Post settings as soon as I have them a little closer as well as pics.
