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...

Its just as I originally said, its for redundancy. Having the sat doesnt give you any further range, just less of a chance of losing signal as you would want to affix it 90 degrees of the leads...

I dont think you will get much help with someone posting the settings you need to get your heli back to where it was. Not because people dont want to be helpful, but because a list of settings here...

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...

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.

There is always the clone route then. Take a look at the HK500 or the CopterX or KDS or even an EXI(if they are still being sold here in the states). That would save you a considerable amount. ...

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.
