Re: E-Flite Blade MSR

I took it to Windsor and flew it outside on Saturday. There were some gusts but nothing major. The msr handle them really well. Sometimes I'd need full input to fly against the wind. This tiny bird is tough. A few times I had to bail from all the controls to avoid a big crash! Each time I just picked it up and started over.

Sunday evening was better. No wind. It's usually very calm after dinner so it's the best time to fly outside. The msr is really agile and responsive. It will take some getting used after flying the mcx for so long. Right now I don't see myself moving the set-up to the more agressive settings.

I'm glad I bought the extra 120 mAh battery but should have bought 2. Flight time is longer than with the 110 mAh battery in the mcx.

This week I'll be practicing inside my 16' x 30' family room and maybe some backyard if it's warm enough.

Re: E-Flite Blade MSR

I have some Tenergy lipos for the MCX/MSR.

New, in package.

Tenergy 3.7V 130mAh 10C LiPo

Fits in the Eflite charger. I am using some in my MCX, and they work good. It is a little tighter fit in the MCX than the stock Eflite batt.

3 for $17 shipped

Re: E-Flite Blade MSR

Let me start off by saying that I have never flown heli's before (now have the MSR and a Trex 450), but do fly planes (for 3 years now). I got one of these about a month ago. After a week, picked up a couple larger batteries (more mAh I mean). So now I have 2 batteries that came with it and 2 that have more mAh. Very durable, crashed many times but like was said, pick it up and fly again (I usually fly it in my 16x16 foot shed which has less room due to the cabinates and three 100cc sized planes hanging on the sides). The only thing I broke so far was one post on the landing gear. A little hot glue and all is good. Very fun and fairly easy to fly. My son (9 yrs old) tried it out last night for the first time and he did really well with it. He was able to keep it straight and in one spot for a while, then moved on to moving it forward and back and side to side. He did crash it a couple of times, but as long as you kill the throttle before it crashes no damage. Well worth the money and fun to fly indoors and out (with no wind or very little). Nice to fly outside in the evenings (dark and light snow falling). Would be nice to have a red light on the tail to help orientate while in the dark. Should look into the glow parts one can get.
I usually fly in the low rate mode (press the right stick in and the red light on the Tx will flash), as the high rates are pretty responsive (good for outdoors).
Yesterday the power adapter for the charger quite working, will have to take that back to the hobby shop. I have a multi power supply that I can use, but due to it putting out less mA I can only charge 2 batteries at the same time otherwise it takes way too long to charge them. Other option is to put the D cell batteries in the charger, but the power supply works till I get the original supply replaced.
Recommend this to anyone.

Re: E-Flite Blade MSR

How does the CP Pro2 compare to the MSR? I have a mCX and have flown the MSR quite a bit. Not sure whether to move to the CP Pro2 or the 400 for indoor flying this winter.

Re: E-Flite Blade MSR

The mSR is still VERY stable hands off compared to a collective pitch heli. It is very good for learning orientation, but either the CP Pro2 or 400 will take a bunch more practice again!

I would check with where you plan to fly, some indoor places I've heard of don't like 400 size heli's. I'd say the 400 is your better choice though, it'll be more stable and will handle outdoor conditions better as well.
