I just got my CFCanopy Guard installed for my new mCPX BL. The brushless is a whole new world of power! I’ve already destroyed one canopy waiting on the new BL guard. I don’t think they could make these canopies and thinner. The guard should do the trick.
The new mCPX BL is a little bigger than the original mCPX. When I powered it up for the first time I was definitely scared. The roar of the engines were intimidating. And boy did it jump into the air with just the slightest movement of the throttle. I could barely control it. My first thought was run, second lookout wife and third I’m going to break this into a million pieces.
It’s taken several flights to get over being nervous but I’m finally there. You better believe I'm still on guard!
CFCanopy has just opened a new store full of creative canopy guards. They offer a unique perspective on canopy design with a pinch of fun thrown in.
The 3M high quality carbon fiber textured vinyl is just like the original CFCanopy Guards. They also plan to offer the canopies themselves so you can paint the canopy any way you like.
When I finally learn how to flip my heli and fly upside down I will definitely reward myself with the INVERTED design!
There is nothing like the thrills and spills of Indoor Heli flying! You never know
if one wrong move will cost you heli parts or a big screen TV...
This site is dedicated to small RC Helicopter fans and the challenge of flying
indoors. This site has two goals: to help heli beginners learn faster and to promote
the fun of indoor flying.
As a beginner myself, I’m building this site as I learn from a beginner’s perspective.
I think once you’re a heli expert you tend to forget how confusing some terms and
techniques were. So, if I present the problems and solutions I had as a beginner
then hopefully you will learn more quickly.
For some strange reason my enjoyment comes from flying indoors and at this point
I have never flown outside. I guess the thrill of tight spaces and precision flying
my Blade mCPX is where my interest lies.
The risk and excitement of flying indoors often leads to spectacular crashes and
this is why this site has so many fix-it tips. I’ve learned the hard way how to battle-proof
Most fly both indoors and outdoors and all are welcome here. So, when you have one
of those wild indoor crashes get your camera out and send us your photos to post.
INFOGRAPHICS: Sometimes heli terms and
techniques can be confusing to the beginner. I hope my infographics can help you
get up to speed quickly.
TRASHED HELIS: This is a place to post
those wild crashes we all experience while flying indoors.
This website is a work in progress so bear with me as I roll out community features.
I am developing this site myself and it will take some time for me to get it the
way I want it.
