Blade RC Helicopter Review

Blade RC Helicopter reviewIf you are a beginner RC helicopter pilot we recommend a coaxial or fixed pitch helicopter. Blade Scout and Blade mCX2 are large coaxial RC Helicopters. Our best-selling fixed-blade Blade helicopters include the Blade 120 S and the Blade 200 SR X. All of these models are available in the Bind-n-fly (BNF) or Ready to Fly (RTF) termination levels. BNF models require the pilot to purchase a separate radio, and RTF models include everything you need to fly in the box.

If you have more experience and are ready to move to a collective launch helicopter, we recommend that you start with the 230 S blade. This heli of the blade has a 6-axis gyro board that will automatically stabilize / fly the helicopter in flight. Real advanced RC helicopter pilots will opt for Blade 270 CFX, Blade 300 CFX or Blade 360 ​​CFX that are capable of advanced 3D maneuvers such as inverted flight, funnels, loops and pirouettes.

If your space is limited, the Blade Nano CP S is a fantastic mini heli indoor / outdoor. The most advanced blade helicopters are only available in Bind-N-Fly.

If you prefer the appearance of a helicopter of scale we offer the Apache Blade AH-64 which is the model of the large-scale combat helicopter of the United States Army.

Blade RC Helicopters Have SAFE Technology

SAFE stands for “Sensor Assisted Flight Envelope”. Great term, but what on earth it means; And more importantly, what is the benefit for you?

The benefit is fairly easy to understand – it helps prevent crashing. Do not crash as often as learning usually equals a faster learning curve and less frustration; While saving money and time, along with the strange change of underwear.

The most basic way to think about SAFE, is when you turn on in beginner mode or stability, will not allow you to fly over the helicopter or quadrotor. For overflying, I mean about control to the point of losing control. When beginners are starting to fly RC anything, the most common problem they have is over-control – they simply have not developed fine motor control skills yet.

This results in the application of too much stick entry to get the plane to move or to be brought back under control. Think of it as driving a car constantly giving more steering wheel inputs to stay in your lane. You would be drifting from lane to lane and soon lose control of your vehicle if you drove that way – right …

Well, when you are flying an RC plane, the same principles of over-control are applied. The only difference is that it is happening in 3 dimensions (yaw, pitch, roll), not just as it does with a land vehicle, so it is naturally more difficult and simply takes more time to learn the required “fineness of flight”.

The SAFE technology that is used in many Blade helicopters and quadriporres as well as Eflite aircraft simply limits the maximum amount of movement the aircraft is capable of which it can not fly over. SAFE technology can also auto-level the aircraft automatically when the sticks are centered, and in some of the SAFE-equipped helicopters, has a “save” or “rescue” function that will bring the aircraft back under control if it is performing Example acrobatics and getting into trouble.
