My blade MCPX and 130 have a little negative pitch in normal mode. It helps when you are flying outside. Just use slower movements with your collective. It did anoy me on the mcpx so I raised the swashplate up a bit to calm it down. If you try this just make sure you adjust each linkage equally, so your swash stays level. Also, if you get in trouble don't drop the throttle all the way down. You can hit the throttle hold button. Are you using the dx4e which comes with the rtf version or a computer transmitter like the dx6i? I prefer the dx6i. Hope this helps

I'm going to re-maiden my scale heli sometime this weekend. Trying to decide on installing the windows or not for better cooling.

Cool, glad you like it. I flew my mcpx around the house today in idle up. They do seem to fly better with a higher head speed. I also have a complete microheli aluminum head which eliminated the play the stock plastic parts had. Here are some pics of my mcpx

Did a flight of the micro p51 Mustang and 130x in the front yard after work. Only got one flight of each before having to call it quits. Got dark quick and I started getting numb thumbs Looks like it is that time of year to dust off the old realflight sim

I agree. Get some flying time in before the wings ice up.

What time are you planning to be out at the field Saturday?

You guys missed another great day of flying. We had another new flyer stop by with an Electristar. Hopefully he will join our group and introduce himself soon.

I am glad I had a few minutes to stop and say "Hi" before ringing the bell.
Always fun to see the planes in the air.
