Yeah should do as the Nano tail fits perfectly in the mcpx frame (2mm carbon rod).

I purchased all my canopies from:-

Pretty sure I've since seen them all for sale on ebay too.

Hey indoorheli thanks a lot

i totally agree with you about 5!
and a ratio of 1.75 for 4 seconds if the tail holds is really great, and never be achieved with a mCP.
I'll get my greedy hands on one as soon as i'm done with this freakin' thesis, again thanks for your feedback.

one more question, is it enough to wear the motors in for like 3-4 hower flights (no right pyros) with about half throttle?

Prost

3) 51g stock thrust was about 4-5 seconds at full charge
4) No I measure as stock would fly with tail left plugged in
5) While the numbers of the mcpx and nano seem to be comparable the big difference is full power doesn’t strain the system like the mcpx main motor did. Soon as I got rid of my mcpx main and went brushless my tail became stronger. I did not notice the same on the nano and the tail authority was solid anyhow unless my battery is crap or I have vibrations somewhere.
6) IMHO the nano is the best indoor heli I have ever flown for capabilities and durability
7) Stock it has no problem doing basic 3d and I am sure a real pilot can rock it and even do sharp tic tocs. My timing isn’t the best so I need more power to do certain maneuvers. But for rainbow’s, flips and funnels it can easily do all of that stock

Default Help.....

Okay... I have been dying to get my NanoCPx Brushless......
I have the Dylan motor and ESC but am stuck with the ESC....

Problem is I should have asked Dylan to flash it and I ordered a new one from him last night. I have the stick and have fought it for two evenings now. I am going cross eyed. I am having connection problems when flashing. I have checked my connection..... Could it be a driver problem? Could someone point me to a YouTube video maybe on doing the process?

Thanks

Default nano kits

Ive just finished the final design of my parts I have made to convert mine to brushless...all I need now is my 8 tooth gear for the motor and I will give it a test...

I made a two part spacer for the servo the first is a frame stiffener / spacer and the second is the just a spacer..the black ring is the motor mount that is press fit in the frame...

It should be as simple as soldering the 3 wires to the pads on the esc, applying power and flashing.

Blhelisetup 7 has a bug for me when flashing new escs though, have to erase the chip first, or flash with an older version first.

8 was just released last night too, havent tried it yet though

Vibrations Effect tail hold more than anything else. Get rid of vibes.

Dylan,

Thanks...... I was told that the stick had to be soldered to other spots on the board or it would be ruined.......

Just trying to make sure ;-)

Just thought I would post my setup for the motor. Was quite simple..... Just a 1/16 G10 disk 8mm CA'd to the lower mount. I did have to carve a little space and slot for the motor screws.....

The 3 solder pads are identified in the blheli thread, first post, and in the supported esc pdf on github, links to both are in a new section "BlHeli info" on my site.

The solder joints have to be good, short wires between the stick and esc help. I use flux on the 3a pads to help get a good joint.

Looks good, still dont like the long shaft needed using an unmodded hp03s though.

Okay......I have scoured your site and stared at pics in this thread and yours..... All show soldered plug for flashing in the center of the board. Can I use the same pads as for the 3-1 input for signal and power?

No, you have to solder to the pads in the middle of the board.

Do you want me to solder a 3 pin flashing plug on your esc? What toolstick are you using?

Okay then..... Guess I will wait til you send me a new one..... I placed my order last night. I am sure your skills are much better than mine and WELL WORTH the 5 bucks ;-) I tried to solder to those spots and first time I unplugged my lead I pulled the positive pad off the board :-( Signal seems loose now as well. I ordered a set of three prongs..... Maybe you can just leave it on the board for me.... Hint hint ;-)
