    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

    RE: CX2 Brushless Kit

    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?

    RE: CX2 Brushless Kit

    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.

    RE: CX2 Brushless Kit

    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.

    RE: CX2 Brushless Kit

    I tried it too, I'll have to let our webmaster know we've got some bugs. Wonder what happened....

    I watched the video and do not see any improvement over stock.

    RE: CX2 Brushless Kit

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

    RE: CX2 Brushless Kit

    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.

    RE: CX2 Brushless Kit

    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.

    RE: CX2 Brushless Kit

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

    RE: CX2 Brushless Kit

    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.

    RE: CX2 Brushless Kit

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

    RE: CX2 Brushless Kit

    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.
