One of the best features of this helicopter is the dual rate function of the remote. This functions as a type of governor on the controls to allow you to get used to flying. The default for the remote is high rate, which is means there is no governor. By pressing down on the right stick, the control speeds are cut in half, allowing for much easier control for the beginner flyer.
Excellent fun for indoors, but this will not fly well outside. Even the most gentle of breezes will give you problems.
The mCX is a true 4 channel flyer, meaning it will move left/right in addition to up/down, forward/back, and rotate to change heading. The 3 channel copters cannot do left/right -- you have to first turn to the desired heading then go forward/back. I didn't realize how useful this 4th degree of freedom is. If you get too close to a wall for example, it's easy to simply fly perpendicularly away without having to first rotate and accelerate. So much easier and safer. I can actually fly it down a long narrow hall. The other copters can't stay from the walls.
Note -- any copter will naturally "suck" itself towards a close-by wall. The reason is that the rotors suck air from above and all sides. If there is, say, a wall on the right, a disproportionate amount of air will have to come from the left. This causes a lower pressure on the right. The copter will move to the right into the lower pressure -- faster and faster. You should always stay at least 2 rotor diameters from any vertical surface. Furthermore, since most of the air comes from above, if you get too close to a ceiling it similarly causes a low pressure above it. The copter will suck itself upward quickly. Satay away from walls and the ceiling.
From the opposite point of view, there is of course a high pressure below the copters. If you fly over, say, a small table the high-pressure "bubble" underneath will push the copter away from the surface.Read more ›
Over the past year, I've flown several similar models; including the: (1) Walkera Lama 2-1, Nine Eagles Pro I (Red). I had more success flying the Lama 2-1 (even outdoors). However, the Lama 2-1 was eventually grounded when the on-board transmitter failed. From what I've seen on-line, parts for the 2-1 are difficult to find as is the heli (that's another story for a different day).
BACK TO THE mCX:
The mCX reminds me of the Nine Eagles Pro I in that both are light-weight and well-designed. My first impression of the mCX (prior to flight) was that the heli is very light and appears well-made. The battery and charger have a very efficient and easy to manage design.
Take 1: Turn on Blade transmitter (auto in Pro mode). I insert and connect the battery to the mCX. Throttle tests look good. Throttle up...WOW, the heli takes off smoothly and hovers with barely a touch of the toggles.
I flew the mCX in my basement (6 FT. 3 In. ceilings) and was able to fly the heli very easily both forward and backwards. I am quite impressed with the mCX and highly recommend to someone (at least intermediate pilot) looking for a well-made, and fun to fly heli. If you are a novice to RC Helis, I would recommend a 2Ch Model ($20-30 Range) before moving up to the mCX. At $100, the mCX is certainly not inexpensive.Read more ›

Better than I expected. I was a little rough on it to start, but it has stayed together. I do need to order an extra landing skid because my cat pulled it out of the air. Read morePublished 11 months ago by M. Farmer
