Noze In

Going through tight spaces nose in will do it to you. Your reactions need to be automatic in tight situations which is why I crash so much with the mCX. It's like the simulator and does not cost much...

Build Review Wandering mCX

I messed around with my mCX and found that if you have the flybar too tight it wanders all over the place.

Best thing to do is take out the screw. I even went further and sanded the slot out a...

Could be a bent shaft. I've crashed so many times chasing the cat that I might have a bent shaft too. I had one on order and it just showed up at the LHS. Now I just need to install it.

I just went to the LHS and they said they were expecting a shipment of parts this week and I had them put my name on a list to hold out a flybar & shaft for me. Then I will modify it.

Thumbs up Great idea !

That's a great idea! The flybar does clip in there good enough it doesn't really need the screw.

As soon as I get parts I'm taking the screw out!

That will help but there's more you can do if you're not using the stock transmitter and have something like a DX7:
