We also carry a true plug-n-play system for the CX heli's & have had great feedback on them. They come ready to mount in your heli with all wiring hooked up & pinions installed & include detailed instructions. If interested, please look here http://www.dreamplastics.com/dhp/upgrade.php

Thanks DHP for the information. I went to the site but clicking on the picture to get more info doesn't work for me? Do you have any more information on it? Power vs the brushed set-up, brushless weight, runtimes, etc?

The specs are: Motors (2) are 2900kv (kilovolt) C10 brushless with (2) 5A electronic speed controls & (2) brushless encoders. Our kit plugs directly into the stock E-Flite receiver & doesn't require ANY frame modifications. I'm not sure exactly HOW much longer your flight times might be as I can't tell you how long it's been since I've flown a stock-motored low-C battery version to compare it to! In fact, I don't even think we still have a stock-motored heli here. We don't just hover around or anything, we usually fly outside & 'hotdog it up' a little & we're getting over 10 minutes & frequently 15 minute flight times.

The Brushless setup looks nice but the site does not allow you to click on the items for info? I did use your other link to see the motor but wanted to look at some other products also.

For us, we've found our brushless setup gives us higher RPM's, faster reponse, & slightly longer flight times.

Even if it isn't a drastic change in speed or anything they are still a better motor. I know from running rc trucks that not having to change and break in brushes was worth the change. If you fly a lot it would be worth it. If you seldom fly I wouldn't bother.

Do you have a kit the don't convert the 3 in 1, but instead has besc's, gyro and v-tail mixer? I think must would agree one of the weakest parts of the CX's in the 3 in 1.

I am worn out on buy the 3 in 1's ever 6 months or so.

Twisted, we currently don't. We went the direct plug-in route.

The brushless setup is completely separate &is available now. The frame is black woven carbon fiber with silver anodized aluminum parts, fits the CX, CX2,CX3&comes with bearings &screws &should be available shortly depending on interest.

Does the brushless conversion allow for better outside flying, wind, etc? Stronger FFF?

The brushless setup allows higher RPM & bite against the wind, especially when used with our blades - BUT - with these fixed pitch coax helis, the higher the RPM, the higher your heli wants to climb so you might have to 'stair step' it back to you in a wind. The single best improvement for forward flight seems to be moving the rod out on the servo horn which gives more throw & tilts the swashplate more.
