The Blade MQX is a flying remote controlled toy that is commonly referred to as "quadcopter." It is insanely fun to fly, but requires some experience before you can fly without crashing.

The MQX is available in two versions. The "RTF" (Ready to Fly) version includes a very basic remote control.

This version, the "BNF" (Bind-N-Fly) version comes without a remote control, and is intended for people who already own a Spektrum remote control. Spektrum makes a wide variety of remote controls that can be used with a wide variety of Blade brand helicopters and E-flite brand remote controlled airplanes. I use the Spektrum DX6i, which you can buy from for $139.99. It can remember ten different planes/helis at once, has a very nice display, and includes a timer, which is helpful to prevent crashes due to dead batteries. If you buy two of the DX6i, you can even connect them together and put them in training mode, which allows you to give and take control from another controller when you're teaching someone else how to fly.

Both the BNF and RTF versions include the MQX Quadcopter, a single battery, a single battery charger, and a user manual with a diagram that shows how all the parts go together and (more importantly) what each part is called. Each battery yields about ten minutes of flight time.

The MQX is a quad-copter because it has four independent motors that operate four independent blades. It flies by adjusting the speed of the blades to allow it to pitch forward and back, roll left and right, and to yaw (turn) left and right.

The MQX includes a stabilization system that Blade uses on its mid-level helicopters. It flies very well in no to light wind.

Hi all, figured I'd write a short review on the MQX now that I've had it for a couple of weeks and have been able to fly it both indoors and outdoors.

About my RC experience: I've flown RC planes a bit (firebird stratos, and a parkzone Polecat), but would not call myself even intermediate. I didn't think I'd be interested in helicopters after getting back in to RC (had a gas plane I flew a couple times in highschool), but after realizing that even the Parkzone Polecat was going to take a bit of driving to get to a flying location, I figured that I'd get something I could fly around my house, and yard.

I was worried that the MQX would be too much since I had no helicopter experience, and almost got a Blade mCX2 instead (supposedly the easiest helicopter to fly). However I'd like to report that if you take it slow, the MQX absolutely makes a good starting point for helicopters.

First off the MQX is light and has no linkages, tail rotors, etc like a traditional helicopter. The landing "skids" are just reinforced cages under the motors. This means you can crash the thing hard and nothing will break or fly off. I've gone into the ground from 20' up outside and only had the canopy come loose. This was into grass, but still I hit hard. I've bounced it off of chairs, the ceiling, and plenty of walls, so far the blades are a bit dinged up, but that is it.

Secondly flight times are excellent with the Blade MQX, ten minutes if you aren't flying crazy is absolutely doable. I usually set my timer for 8 minutes, and that leaves me with plenty of juice. I picked up two extra batteries and so can fly for half an hour easy.

Surprised I didn't find any reviews on this heli yet. I have owned the Blade MCX Blade mCX RTF for just over 2 years. Fantastic indoor heli that is stable and easy to learn to fly. Great for all ages. But the fun factor has gone away with the MCX because of its limited maneuverability. But that's what makes the MCX great: very stable and easy to fly. So I went looking for something with a little more excitement. Did a lot of research and decided on the Blade MQX. Partly because it is a BLade and the MCX has been very reliable, but mostly due to the reviews on the different fora.

I got the MQX, charged the battery and took off. I won't quote what I said, but this is a completely different heli from the MCX. It requires pilot skill to fly around and just to hover. Gone are the days of advancing the collective (throttle) and just hovering for many minutes with minimal pilot input. You have to FLY this heli most of the time. It will hover and the stabilizing system is top notch, but get just a bit out of sync and off it goes. And that's why I love this heli. It is beyond maneuverable. It does flips. It goes faster than I can keep up. And it sounds really cool. And with some practice, it will hover very well. It is a lot more work to fly than the MCX, but that should keep me interested for a while.

So, if you're looking for your first heli, get the MCX. If you want some serious fun after you've master the basics of heli flt, get the MQX. It makes me giggle every time I fly it.



This quad copter has been quite the terror in the basement. I almost stopped flying it because it is too quick.
