Freshjuice, I'd send that one back as defective. I returned my first one to my LHS because the battery would not hold a charge. The 2nd one is fine.

Not much different, other than the tail drift problem with the CX. The CX2 will still drift towards the end of the battery pack, but it's not near as bad as it is with my CX1.I love the CX2!

I think you were wise in selecting the CX. Once you learn the basics of tail in and nose in hovering, you'll be ready to try your hand at forward flight. I did it backwards.....Got the CP first then...

Thanks,
