Blade mCPX or Nano cPX.

They are micro CP helis that can do just about anything their bigger brothers can, BUT can take abuse and crashes...often without breaking anything.

I feel that my mCPX...

If it were me I wouldnt try and fix it. You could probably put it up for sale for someone that wants it for spare parts or rob any parts that are worth saving for spares for your other helis. Like...

If you can fly the mcpx in TOTAL control, there isnt a heli out there that you cant fly.

Welcome to the addiction!

If you can see fit to slightly expand your budget, I would go for a 500 over the 400-450 size heli. The 500 really isnt THAT much more of an expense and it flies better...

I dont think you can go wrong with the Blade, based on your limited experience (Im assuming here).

No problem.

If you can swing the price...go for the DFC flybarless heli. Because having a flybar on a scale fuse heli just doesnt look right, to me anyway. And like I said...the 3GX or even a...

Buy lots of spare parts is the best tip I can give you.

Probably your best option, cost wise would be an Align Trex 500.

They arent much more to build than a 450, but almost twice the size. And if you go with say an MD500 fuse...it would be even...

My opinion.

Get a Blade mCPX BL, and either Clear View or Phoenix SIM and at least a DX6i transmitter.

With that, you CAN learn to fly a CP heli.
