RC Helicopter flying, RC Cars and RC boating

Made for other people and me to track what I am doing when with my remote controlled units. It started out with helicopters. Hence the name.

If only one of my units is of interest, this unit can be clicked on the right and only posts regarding that unit shows up.

Blade mCPx V2 helicopter

Blade mCPx HelicopterPosted by xilsoe Jan 01, 2014 21:10:45
This Christmas I had the largest present under the tree. It was a big box that contained a small helicopter. A Blade mCPx V2 RC helicopter. I have bound it to my Spektrum DX6i transmitter and before that I programmed the transmitter as it was described in the manual.

As I am a beginner when it comes to collective pitch I have been flying in the simple mode, where I can't go inverted. I have however tried out the advanced mode and that also seems quite doable. I will however have to get used to use the throttle cut button to stop the rotor when in an emergency.

When it comes to flying I must say this helicopter flies really well. It might be because of the advanced flight controller that keeps it stable. When comparing to my Walkera 4#3 I find the Blade helicopter much easier to fly. I believe I have worn the Walkera out anyway. It has been some years since last flight and as far as I recall, it was acting weird back then.

The only shortcoming I can think of is the flight time. 3 minutes in trick mode or 4 minutes in normal mode. There is a good reason why two batteries are included.

Now I am looking forward to helicopter night in the model boat club. That will give more room to try out this helicopter and get to know it better.
