Default May Be buying the Axe CP tomorrow if convinced....

Hey guys, Im seriously may be buying the Axe CP this weekend. I have a Blade CX2 and been flying the Axe CP On G3.5 simulator. I have around 30+ hours on this heli and love the way it flies. I tried the CP Pro on the sim but it seems too "jerky" and too responsive for me. Im just wondering is this a good chopper for the money? Looking to hear thoughts or suggestions from some beginners as well as some highly experienced flyer's who flown this bird. Thanks in advance guys!

I have a Axe CP and I like it but it is very touchy. I mean just move the sticks a small amount and it responds quickly. I have wrecked the head so far and reassembly was easy. It went straight into the ground from about 15 feet and all I did was break a blade grip and readjust the motor to the gear. all in all I am very pleased so far. If you can learn to fly this you can fly them all. Oh and parts availibility is very good so far also.

I don't have an Axe-- I have the BCPP. Looking at the parts for the Axe CP, I think it may well be a better micro if you're starting out. It is a lot more robust and should be easier to fly (with maybe fewer repairs). The Blade, as you say, is very quick on the controls and has very lightweight construction.
