Ultra micro quad for Spektrum users. Its got a lot of crash avoidance and such built in, and its TINY. Check it out: http://www.bladehelis.com/Products/Default.aspx?ProdID=BLH7680

Cool! maybe i can fly it, as i am too scared to attempt to fly the t-rex 450 i have.

I have a bunch of the UM helis from Blade, but never did get into the 450s. I have enough trouble with my mCP X. :)


Quads are generally more stable, as far as I know. Just have to be careful if you build your own and leave off blade guards.

i need to order the flybar less kit... the little mico heli's are NOT easier to fly then the bigger brothers.

Quads are by far the easiet to fly from my understanding, foamy airplanes are good too.

oh ,jesus.. you got me wanting to get this project back moving... any body good with heli's ? maybe i can bring this box of stuff to the lab some weekend, and have a go at it.

i am looking at the flybarless kits now, and seeing what i have and what i need... also need to see if the specktrum beastX works with my gear.

Chorca and f00bard were heavy into RC helis. I'm still very, very much a neophyte. JD may also be able to help. He's an RC robot whiz.

I sold my Blade 450. Too scary to fly regularly. I'm building a quad right now, going to test a couple autopilots, namely Arducopter and AeroQuad. Should have most of the main assembly finished today.

did you have a flybarless setup on it ?

Naw, it had a flybar. I just didn't have enough experience to fly it well, and the $$ it cost to fix it every time i crashed were adding up quickly.

Though, now it seems the skills i learned with that make me a better quad pilot? I guess it's a lot easier to pilot one of those in stabilize mode.

my understanding is flybarless makes it much easier to fly as well :)

quad will be nice, have not been looking much as its new, is there any good large scale kits? are they all pretty much design from scratch still.. i don't want a matchbox heli.

If you haven't flown before, start with a small one. It's much cheaper to crash.

I started on a Blade 120SR, and that thing is still fun to fly (though i've pretty much destroyed it through countless crashes). Teaches you a lot about flying a copter,

I have a bunch of the small ones, and swear by them. When you are ready, you can get a mCP X. Same skills and flight characteristics of the big ones, with a tenth of the repair cost.
