Try a new plug and also make sure your Align starter is fully charged. Mine will not start my new 105 unless it's fully charged.

I use the Nimbus sunglasses from Model Glasses too.

I've had Oakleys which I found were more interested in making up fancy words in their product info pages then actually making decent sunglasses.

I wanted Maui Jims but I found them hard to come across here so I ended up just buying a pair of Ray Ban's for day to day use and Nimbus sunglasses for flying, which are excellent. They're impact proof, decentered, come with many different colour lenses and keep wind out great.

Ray Ban's look superb but they're awful for flying as due to the flat shape they glare from any sun behind.

For the DX7 a Li-Fe pack would be a better choice, if you use a Li-Po the voltage will be too high.

Newer Spektrum transmitters have the option to run a Spektrum Li-Po pack which contain a built in safety circuit board which balances and prevents over charge / discharge of the pack. These can also handle the higher voltage.

The main advantage of Li-Fe and Li-Po is the capacity and very, very low self discharge rates, you're talking many, many hours (if not weeks) before charging.

I didn't get a chance to vote but I also flipped from nose in upright to tail in inverted. So I felt better hovering tail in inverted for a very long time. Now I like hovering nose in more inverted, go figure lol...

Edit: Nope! I remember now, first I done tail in rolls to inverted from tail in upright, then I moved to nose in upright to inverted tail in.

Thanks for the comments guys, it's nice to see some points from another view and makes it more worthwhile for me.

The plan is to have 4 mCPX's bound to my DX8 and to switch model memory, hopefully we can have someone's assistance to plug the battery in - or perhaps we will find another way which is safe.

As for lighting and sound effects - great idea I was struggling to see the model sometimes but now I have painted the canopy it is easier to see, perhaps we could look into more lighting options such as UV effects.

The point you made about other dangerous stuff is actually very true - everyone is well aware of the danger of the blades and I have told Nina many times that the blades are dangerous I think she is sick of me now .

Nina was after a helicopter look - I did suggest a quad as it would be more ideal for the type of flying but as the name suggests it has to be a helicopter .

I can't wait to get my hands on a V2 mCPX to try.

I checked out a lot of copyright free, free music and I think this was the most fitting, there isn't a massive choice but a big thanks for the people that do offer this.

Cheers guys.

Wow, what a way to come to conclusions. I have a full time job already - I am volunteering to help with this non-profit art project in my own time at my only free weekends - I am not getting any money out of this.

Nina posted on some UK helicopter forums asking for help. The funds are simply going to this project, not quite sure where you got "making money" from.

If you do not like this there is no need to comment or contribute anything at all.

"Copter" Dance Project (work in progress)
Hi guys,

I just thought I would let you know about a helicopter dance project I have been helping out with called "Copter".

We are learning a little more about both of the sides that are working in synergy. The differences in the terminology that is used has especially been fun!

I am helping out by piloting the mCPX's which are being used, the plan is to use around four mCPX's all set up on my Spektrum DX8 so the flight can be virtually seamless.

It has generated quite a bit of interest in the dance community and I always like to see members of the public who have never seen a "proper" remote control helicopter fly. I hope this brings more awareness and members to the hobby.

A rehearsal video from our 6th fly together can be found here:

Watch at Vimeo

I realise the mCPX did not fly too much in this video but it is the only preview video we have currently.

Project Description:

A truly ‘ethereal’ performance: contemporary choreographer Nina
Kov's upcoming work replaces a dancer with a model helicopter.

LONDON, February 2012
-*
'Copter' is set to be a 15-minute
contemporary dance piece, an unusual duet between a radio controlled
helicopter and a dancer. French-Hungarian choreographer Nina Kov’s
aim is ‘to bring a fresh production to both the modelling and dance
world’.

The idea came about at a house party where some RC enthusiast
friends were flying helicopters around the room, when the
choreographer started dancing with them.

Controlling the helicopter is UK’s 3D intermediate champion Laurence
Gough. He says he has had to take his skills to a new level - working
his miniature aircraft like a puppeteer, in an effort to make it appear
as an animate, conscious creature.

The rehearsals are underway, with a premier set for July 2012. The
choreography will be then shot as a short dance film.

The company is looking for support from their fans, friends and future
audiences. Increasingly common among independent artists, they are
using crowd funding website indiegogo.com to raise $5000 from
micro-contributions by 16 February. Any funds raised will be matched
by Stream Arts Greenwich.

Help us make COPTER come true! -- IndieGoGo

A teaser trailer of the project can also be found at the above link.

Nina Kov is a French born choreographer. Her works have been shown
at The Place in London, the National Dance Theatre in Budapest and
other venues internationally.

Nina's website can be found at: Nina Kov -

Cheers,

Laurence

EDGE NOIZ blade decals, but these are no longer sold.

It was a holographic decal which wrapped around the blades and had a uniquely shaped trailing flap which vibrated.

Problem solved! Haha... Shame it makes the heli fly crap... But yes this is the main concern for me when flying with nitros, you really have to keep an eye on the feel of the heli for any loss in power.

Telememtry systems help out a great deal as you can have a vibrate and tone alert when the motor speed drops.

I would leave mine at after flight state of charge and then just charge up when needed as I never fly more than two weeks apart.

I think storage charge is more for many weeks or even months out of use.

Although I would not leave packs fully charged for more than week or two as this is a quick way to weaken them, then they should be discharged to around 50-80%.

Blade noise please, no high pitch mechanical noises or chainsaw of nitro sounds covering everything!

One of the reasons why I love flying my Logo!

I love the sound of nitro when the throttle is varied like in planes or cars, and the idle noise but not running in helis..

What's next?

Next generation batteries that have a better cycle life and a little more robust to abuse. That is my only wish current battery tech is very good with the better brands but the best improvement area to be made I feel.

Oh and I think there will be advances in flight time alarms based on mAh out, I know there are a few systems out there but I am hoping this becomes more mainstream.

I like them how there are - there are many designs of Radix blades out there.

I also think Radix blades are probably the most sexy of them all, but those new EDGE SE ones do look very pretty.

They are already plenty visible enough in the air, as long as they have bright white tips I am happy.

Of course more choice is always nice but not without the addition of extra cost I would imagine.

For a mCPX or below while ideally it shouldn't be flown above anyone I've seen it happen and it really wouldn't hurt a fly if power is stopped before any impact.

I think in any case flying above the public is a dumb idea...

Ahh, Logo canopies wrap around .

Canopies can actually save your heli from a lot of damage, although I guess sometimes canopies can cost more than what is saved, I vary rarely fly without one though, perhaps when setting up someone else's.

The lower drag in flight helps too.

Flying electric works out cheaper per a flight in the UK at least. With the larger nitro engines coming a long, a hell of a lot cheaper!

If you crash damage is pretty equal anyway.

Anyway it's a hobby fly what you love to fly

I love the smell and smoke of nitro but for me electric offers more power, no messing with tuning (weather etc) and is not too expensive per a flight.

The 450 motor also has less load on it, and in my case always comes down a lot cooler than my 4035-500kv motor which lands pretty hot.

I hear some say the heat doesn't do great things to the motor oil. Now my understanding is oil doesn't mind heat much...

I oil my motors every 3-6 flights or so.

Willing to bet that the slop between the bearing and bolt will be more than any decent plastic ball will ever get .

Probably be worse once the metal against metal gets worse.

Antennas have an apple radiating pattern, so 90 degrees up is actually best as you're unlikely to fly a heli above you, but you often fly it directly in front of you.
