RC Helicopter Review
Blade mCX2 RTF
This extremely popular indoor rc helicopter is very forgiving, stable and easy to fly, very sturdy and well built thus can withstand a great deal of punishment but it's not indestructible.
The body and tail design is excellent as it goes a long way in absorbing crash shocks.
The Blade MCX2 is not a toy but a very real RC Helicopter that does require some learning to fly, highly recommended for people that would like to experience the world of RC Helicopter flying for the first time. Once you get familiar with it, you will be able to do lots of tricks, like power slides, ground spins, spirals, j turns, and much, much, more. It comes equipped with Led lights for poorly lit or dark rooms.
The Blade MCX2 is very precise, fast, with a generous abundance of spare parts in case of a crash (which will happen) and upgrades to choose from if you wish to further your flying experience, regarded by some as amongst the better indoor helicopters on the market.
It has the capability through some small modifications to a more aggressive mode, it will fly even faster and be more responsive. Of course you need to master the basic mode before thinking of giving it some steroids, or you'll end up crashing it against a wall or person.
You'll get around 8.5 minutes of uninterrupted flying, so as with a lot of other copters , it's a good idea to invest on some spare batteries
With the 2.4 ghz spread spectrum radio control, you don't lose control of your MCX2 if you stop aiming at it, unlike the cheaper ir controlled.
The well built 4 channel transmitter gives the Blade MCX2 the agility to dodge walls in a hurry if required. This is an Indoor RC helicopter and is not suitable for outdoor flying or anywhere where there is a substantial air movement as this will cause the craft to be extremely unstable.
This is a durable machine capable of giving hours of fun, it's a bit dearer than those $20 toys, but you are getting a real RC flying experience, real quality, and will definitely outlast it's cheaper cousins by a long mile.
