I've been flying RC helicopters for about 5 years, nitro, electric...and I have to say this little guy is my favorite. I found flying the big heli's not too relaxing and crashes were expensive. But flying this little guy is just pure fun and no worries about crashing....it seems indestructable. I find it very relaxing to fly. I just love being able to fly it in the smallest of indoor spaces. It is highly stable and easy to fly. That being said, once you get good at flying it there are many things you can do with it. If you are interested in learning how to fly RC helicopters then this is definately the one to start with. Highly recommended.

After buying a cheap $30 infrared heli I got the bug for something better. This mini rc copter flys great right out of the box. It is very stable and easy to fly. With only a little effort you can make it hover in place and put the remote down, its that stable. This stability comes at a cost though, forward speed. It flys forward and backwards at about walking pace, so don't expect to be recreating your favorite Airwolf episodes.

One of the best features of this helicopter is the dual rate function of the remote. This functions as a type of governor on the controls to allow you to get used to flying. The default for the remote is high rate, which is means there is no governor. By pressing down on the right stick, the control speeds are cut in half, allowing for much easier control for the beginner flyer.

Excellent fun for indoors, but this will not fly well outside. Even the most gentle of breezes will give you problems.

I have at least 8 RC helicopters and this is the best-flying one of all. It is quite small. Rotor diameter 7.5", overall chassis length 7.75", and weight 26.5 gm or less than an ounce (with the 120 mAh supplied batt). The gyro is rock solid. Trim it and it stays on heading better than a train.

The mCX is a true 4 channel flyer, meaning it will move left/right in addition to up/down, forward/back, and rotate to change heading. The 3 channel copters cannot do left/right -- you have to first turn to the desired heading then go forward/back. I didn't realize how useful this 4th degree of freedom is. If you get too close to a wall for example, it's easy to simply fly perpendicularly away without having to first rotate and accelerate. So much easier and safer. I can actually fly it down a long narrow hall. The other copters can't stay from the walls.

Note -- any copter will naturally "suck" itself towards a close-by wall. The reason is that the rotors suck air from above and all sides. If there is, say, a wall on the right, a disproportionate amount of air will have to come from the left. This causes a lower pressure on the right. The copter will move to the right into the lower pressure -- faster and faster. You should always stay at least 2 rotor diameters from any vertical surface. Furthermore, since most of the air comes from above, if you get too close to a ceiling it similarly causes a low pressure above it. The copter will suck itself upward quickly. Satay away from walls and the ceiling.

From the opposite point of view, there is of course a high pressure below the copters. If you fly over, say, a small table the high-pressure "bubble" underneath will push the copter away from the surface.

I have flown RC Heli for about 2 Yrs. Over that time, I've flown the most basic 2Ch Models through 6Ch 3D (Inversion-capable). At this point, the 4Ch and 6Ch (200-400 Size models) are quite difficult to fly. I have crashed and trashed at least 4 large and expensive helis. So, my comments on the Blade mCX should translate as very genuine for someone searching for a heli that is reasonably-priced, small, well-built, and quite fun to fly.

Over the past year, I've flown several similar models; including the: (1) Walkera Lama 2-1, Nine Eagles Pro I (Red). I had more success flying the Lama 2-1 (even outdoors). However, the Lama 2-1 was eventually grounded when the on-board transmitter failed. From what I've seen on-line, parts for the 2-1 are difficult to find as is the heli (that's another story for a different day).

BACK TO THE mCX:
The mCX reminds me of the Nine Eagles Pro I in that both are light-weight and well-designed. My first impression of the mCX (prior to flight) was that the heli is very light and appears well-made. The battery and charger have a very efficient and easy to manage design.

Take 1: Turn on Blade transmitter (auto in Pro mode). I insert and connect the battery to the mCX. Throttle tests look good. Throttle up...WOW, the heli takes off smoothly and hovers with barely a touch of the toggles.

I flew the mCX in my basement (6 FT. 3 In. ceilings) and was able to fly the heli very easily both forward and backwards. I am quite impressed with the mCX and highly recommend to someone (at least intermediate pilot) looking for a well-made, and fun to fly heli. If you are a novice to RC Helis, I would recommend a 2Ch Model ($20-30 Range) before moving up to the mCX. At $100, the mCX is certainly not inexpensive.
