the winter down period, bad weather, less light , a bit less time and than this came along …
I bought an used Blade MCX2 with a Spektrum DX4E from Ebay , it came with a broken flybar but that got replaced and i have been flying it around the living room pretty much all the time since. Its my first Heli and even though its a coaxial it is a 4 channel so all the basics are there . I can really recommend it as a first heli , its stable , and both me and Mojca are total newbies at this and we got the hang of it super quick.
The only thing that i broke whilst trying to tweak it is the ball head on the swash plate whilst trying to remove the link, so i made a DIY ball link remover from a set of old tweezers (inspired by the internet, not my own idea) also on the modding side i changed the lights to solid instead of blinking.
Its a great little Heli, it flies great and the parts are cheap !
The old workspace is super messy but that will get tidied up very very soon ,because a special package just needs to be cleared by customs . Im really looking forward to it, all i can say is that it has made its journey all the way from Korea!
