Re: E-Flite new CX-3

mcx was a fun little thing .cx2 in my opinion .well lets just say you will have more fun with the box. i just dont get the concept /to big to fly in the house & cant fly in the lightest breeze .how many times are you realy going to fly in a gym.the best part is it flys like cr@@p.if the cx 3 was 1/2 the weight it might do ok.still dont know were you would fly it .stick with the mcx and save for a 450 .of some sort .that way you can have a indoor & outdoor setup.ROGER

Re: E-Flite new CX-3

Well, the mechanics are all CX2, aside from the landing gear mount, new 3 in 1 with heading hold Gyro and a separate 6001e RX. Flew it in the hobby store and basically it flies the same as a CX2 without so much tail drift as the battery runs down of it's predecessor, the largest feature is the new body which I like very much I like the all 500 type bodies and I hope there is a way to adopt it to my CX2, which I am sure, there should be no problem with a few parts.
I disagree about the house flying. It is definitely small enough to fly in a room as many CX2 owners will attest to. I learned to fly on a CX in a basement no problem.
