Exclamation Upgrade or...Upgrade? [Motor Upgrade vs New Heli]

Ok, I bought a Blade CX on eBay and it's doing great...but I want more power.

I've went through and shortened the flybar after I moved the servo pins out to the last hole and response is insane, I can actually combat some wind.

I was looking between these for motor upgrades:
$32 total - http://www.miracle-mart.com/store/in...roducts_id=596
$18 total - http://www.bladecxpro.com/

Anyways, I'm sure whether the CX is worth it to upgrade...I haven't flown one, but I've heard the 3D models have alot more control so I'm not sure whether I'd need that control right now.

Anyone have suggestions?
(btw, I'm not one to spend $200+ for a helicopter setup)

I've only heard good things about the miracle mart motors and not so good things about the cxpro ones. I have never personally tried so I can't reccommend or disprove of one or the other.

anyone else have suggestions?

I was told at a local hobbyshop it may not be worth it on such an introductory helicopter.

Personally I would wait until the motors seem to be worn out then replace them. You may be disappointed that there really isn't that much of a difference.

I gotta agree with the LHS, you will eventually get bored with the CX and delegate it to strictly for teaching others or dinkering around in the livingroom. It sounds like you are ready to move onto a single rotor heli.

Mine was bought at ebay, radio is dead, servo was maxed out, it's a very bad unit to start out with, I'll make her fly regardless, I received no deal in the transaction, if your LHS has one to sell, buy it, it's a tough bird, utter simplicity, I was actually a little let down since I don't have somethng to tinker with on it.........
