Like the original Blade® mCX heli, the Blade mCX2 heli is easy enough for anyone to fly and small enough to fly just about anywhere. The mCX2 heli has the same coaxial, counter-rotating rotor head design as the current mCX heli, but it adds an extra shot of excitement with user-selectable swash sensitivity and flashing LED lights that are built right into the body. The pilot can change the control settings to enable this heli to perform at higher speeds than the beginner settings. This helicopter also boasts heading lock-like performance for maximum control. It also boasts more powerful motors and a higher capacity 120mAh battery pack. The mCX2 heli is the ultimate beginner-friendly machine with unsurpassed stability, incredible control and extreme durability.

Freedom from frequency restrictions and great control are ensured with the MLP4DSM 4-channel 2.4GHz Spektrum technology-equipped transmitter

This has fast forward flight, a super-stable hover, and the little l.e.d.s they added are a nice touch. It's definitely something a beginner can fly, even younger children with a little supervision to start.
I compared the parts/frame of the mcx2 to the mcx and they look pretty much identical, the servo arms have a little "C" in the middle of them, I think that might give them a little more durability, other than that I couldn't really see anything else. (mcx2 5in1 has led plug) That being said the mcx2 feels like it's maintained it's hover "integrity", if you will, through more crashes. Have yet to really smash this, but I've bounced it off a few walls and whatnot, and nothing has broken.
I have noticed the flybar can pop off at impact, I'm not sure if this was done on purpose since the attached flybar would occasionally bust on the original mcx.
The mcx2 is a little faster in forward flight than the mcx1 if you switch the servos to the longer balls on the swashplate, also there's an optional (sold seperately) tail with weight sold for the mcx2 that can replace the current tail that makes it a little more maneuverable.
Other than that, it looks a little sharper than the mcx1, it's got a little white on the blades, the canopy is a little nicer (and clear), it's got the flashing l.e.d.s for flying in the dark. It comes with the same 1 pack charger as my mcx1 came with, with a slight update, this one has the option to hook it up with a wall charger (sold seperately) vs the mcx1's single cell charger was battery-only.
Overall, great first heli, lots of fun to fly, anyone can fly it, if you don't have an mcx1 yet, definitely get this one instead! If you've got an mcx1... eh, it's fun but not really worth the upgrade cost. (if you have an mcx1 just get a cusker mod and it'll pretty much fly like the mcx2)

A friend bought me one for Christmas and I have been having a blast with this thing! I am 54 years old and have always had a dream of flying a toy helicopter around my living room. This thing is easy to fly, robust, and totally engrossing. I ended up ordering the tandem as well and have flown it all over the house. As a commercial pilot with 26,000+ hours in "real" airplanes, flying this thing in my living room adds another dimension to my aviation experience. Make no mistake: This is no toy. It is a remotely piloted air vehicle that is every bit as much of an aircraft as a 737 is. Truly amazing!!!
The instructions in the manual are clear and get you flying quickly. It is fun to fly and flys very well. Great for flying indoors in limited space.
Also, the charger provided works very well.
I've purchased a few of these smaller type helicopters, and this one is my favorite to fly - comparing to my Blade MSR and cheaper helicopters. Starting out, definitely plan on crashing a few times. So far, this seems to be pretty durable. I've purchase a few of the smaller helicopters, and can offer this advice: stay away from the super cheap helicopters (i.e. $20 range). I figured a $20 helicopter would be good enough to learn with and be cheap if I blew it up. But I didn't even get much learning experience - after about 5 flights, it didn't have enough power to get off the ground - and I hadn't damaged any blades. Also, the controls with this helicopter seem to be more consistent with my full blown RC helicopter - so I think skills developed with this helicopter will be compatible with flying my big helicopter. Definitely not so with the $20 range versions. Not anywhere close to the amount of control available.
Another nice thing about this helicopter - if you down press the right joystick on the controller - it goes into a different mode - slows down the sensitivity. This is a huge benefit when starting out.
I have a decent sized living room/dining room connected area. This helicopter works great in this space ( my house is only 1710 square feet). I can fly it around, do laps around the chandelier, move chairs and fly it under the dining room table, etc., and keep it in control at all times.
Flight time is about 7-8 minutes. The helicopter came with the 3.7V 120mAh 14C battery. I bought some 3.Read more ›
