A number of weeks ago, I bought a parts lots of mcpx bits and pieces of off a member on another forum - Jordan and there were quite an assortment of parts.

Now the buy, came a bushless mcpx ( lengthened tail with standard mcpx tail motor), so this heli will stay as it is and a standard mcpx was put together with a brushless motor and the 120sr tail motor and the mcpx I had will be the double brushless conversion with carbon and cnc upgrades.

I have done a bit of research over at Helifreak in the following threads -

Now for the double brushless conversion, I will be using the Hawk Creation BLHeli Dual ESC(10A+3.5A) For mCP X and this will be flashed with the brushless heli software. The dual speedy will run the main motor, tail motor and will enable me to do away with seperate speedies and converters, while also having the ability the update and modify the speedy settings etc.

I will also use the Hawk-Stick BLHeli ESC Upgrade Tool for future updating and flashing the dual esc.

Hawk Rc were great with answering the questions that I had and offered great customer service.

I have ordered this gear and it was sent today, so when it arrives and I have a chance to fit the gear and get it up and running, I will post up some pics and info of my experience with the conversion.

Cheers Dave.

O.K. so a bit of an update with the mcpx.

I received the necessary gear from Hawk Rc and have soldered plugs to motors and have fitted all of what I need.

Now before I fired it up I did make sure that the speedies had the latest BLheli software installed and this was really easy with the hawk stick pictured below.

You will have to download the necessary software available for free here http://www.helifreak.com/blog.php?u=144146&blogcategoryid=119

As the speedy came already flashed, all I had to do was open up the software, and plug the hawk stick ( or other bands are called toolsticks ) into the computer with the provided usb cable, then plug the hawkstick into a chosen side of the speedy ( main or tail side) and press connect, then click for it to read the speedy and you will have a number of items that you can change on the speedy.

Here is a thread where the different items are explained and what they mean, for those of us that are electronically challenged - http://www.helifreak.com/showthread.php?t=467519&page=2

Now all I have to do is read what they all mean and fire it up and have some fun.

Here are some pics I have taken so far.






Thanks for looking,

Cheers Dave.
