 (mCPX Released in the USA March 2011)
As many people, who have bought, the E-Flite Blade mCPX helicopter, are aware of, the mCPX has a problem with the blade grips coming apart, due to blade grip ball bearing failure, this is a major concern for many people including myself. I really like the mCPX otherwise but I did not want to risk the helicopter or a possible injury while flying it.

So in order not to spoil the fun with the mCPx, I decided to develop a solution. Actually I had a more elaborate solution based on one of my early palm-size helicopter designs, I did back in 2003, the MIA Mosca, which some people may be familiar with. I did various rotor head designs and one of them happened to be a flybarless CP, but done in a way to provide ultra safety as normally cp tiny helis spin the rotor much faster and require a higher degree of care in the rotor design.

To realize a simple solution as the safety kit I have developed for the mCPx, I had to analyze the reason why the blade grips were flying off the rotor head.

Many reports, in various RC forums, indicated the blade grip ball bearings were exploding or coming apart in mid flight, some after many flights and some, just out of the box.

Part of the reason the ball bearings in the blade grips fail, is due to fatigue from pulling  forces exerted on the ball races retainer rings, and there is considerable on the mCPx. A way to prevent this from happening is to employ additional thrust bearings, but this complicates the stock product and increases cost, and even with such, there is still the risk of the blade grips coming apart from the rotor head.

Keep in mind that the mCPx rotor head spins much faster than a regular FP mSR or Coaxial mCX helicopter and thus extra level of safety is required on the design of the rotor head. Unfortunately, the designers of the mCPx fell a little short in this area, but luckily we have a simple and effective solution.

The mCPx is a very nice helicopter, but for safety and increased confidence, I have come up with this MIA BGS ™ ( Blade Grip Safety) Upgrade Kit, which not only makes the mCPx safer to fly, but will also extends the life of the ball bearings, and maybe even prevent them from falling apart.

Whether you have already replaced your mCPx with higher quality blade grip ball bearings, the MIA BGS ™ is a MUST have upgrade for this very capable 3D tiny helicopter. Especially, if you plan on doing some hard 3D flying.

I felt this was important so we are starting out with this MIA BGS ™ Safety kit Upgrade for your Blade mCPx.
The MIA BGS is an Ultra  Lightweight and Simple Solution that allows no modification to the rotor head or other parts of the mCPx helicopter.


Update May 20, 2011

Horizon Hobby released a new Blade grip which is supposed to fix the previous issues with the original blade grip failing. Nevertheless, we highly recommend the use of the MIA BGS Safety for added peace of mind.

Update July 25, 2011

We have added the MIA Phantom and Edge™ combo kits, as well as individual kits.

Whether you have the Original Blade mCP X Blade Grips or "B" Version, or ANY blade grip, with the same bolt to bolt distance, as the original, the  MIA BGS Provides added Blade Grip Safety, in addition to minimizing wear and tear on the internals of the Blade grips.
Please watch our Kit,  Install and Demo videos carefully, so that the MIA BGS kit works for you, as it was intended.

If you are looking for the traditionally well known MIA TUFF LG, ultra strong and stable LG platform, go with this awesome! kit.
NOTE, there is absolutely no metal hardware used with the boom support, this is to keep the tail section light, and not to affect the CG, tail rotor moment arm efficiency and crisp tail control response.

Note this "Universal" MIA TUFF™ LG is slightly different than the one supplied with the Complete MIA Phantom™ and MIA Edge™ Combo kits. This one uses Flex couplers for the boom support and is not the bolt-on version. If you want the bolt on version  with the G10 tail snap on tail fins, get the Combo kits.    Watch the related product videos carefully before selecting the one that best fits your requirements.
