Product Description

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. With a factory-installed 5-in-1 control unit with SpektrumTM 2.4GHz DSM2®-compatible receiver, main motor ESCs, mixer, gyro and fully-proportional servos come pre-installed. This Bind-N-Fly® version without transmitter is perfect for those who already own a DSM2 aircraft transmitter. The ultra micro size and weight of the Blade mCX2 heli make it possible to fly this heli anywhere indoors. It all adds up to more fun than you ever thought possible with a coaxial ultra micro heli, whether you're a newbie or a pro. Bind-N-Fly® technology-compatible with all aircraft transmitters and modules equipped with Spektrum DSM2 technology. Full line of replacement parts available.

Easy to learn with and easy to fly once trimmed and (pilot) trained.

I've flown model airplanes all my life but other than the Air Hogs 2 channel helis I've not messed with helicopters much. The main reason being that larger ones are money pits for the novice flyer. Every crash is a guaranteed $30 or more down the drain and crashes are going to happen on a regular basis for most people.

I had a couple Air Hog Havoc's last year and loved the little helis. They were entertaining to fly and practically indestructible. Recently a friend let me fly his Blade MCX2 and I was amazed at how far the micro heli's have come in a year. So, just to get my feet wet in the micro helis again, I bought a $29 Syma S107 just to get back into the hobby. The S107 was a lot better than the Air Hogs Havoc and I was amazed how stable and sturdy it was. I also bought a Blade MCX2 and a Blade MSR. The Blade helis arrived last night after sending a S107 back because one of the S107 motors stopped working after about 30 flights. I flew the MCX2 and MSR helis until after 2am this morning. I couldn't quit playing with them. What a blast. The following is a review of all my recent equipment so anyone looking for something faster or slower than the MCX2 will have references to check out.

The Syma S107...

This is a really great heli for only $36 shipped!! You just can't beat the price and the S107 is built like a tank so you can't hardly break it. Compared to the Blade helis, the S107 looks and feels like a tank. It has a metal frame and landing gear believe it or not. Well, even so, I managed to break it somehow. One of the rotor motors stopped working after about 30 flights. I think that was a fluke though because the S107 got hundreds of 4 and 5 star ratings.

After taking a step back from my first collective pitch fight attempts I took my repair budget and I got this little indoor bird (BNF). Bound it to my DX6i, which is a very simple process, and with a bit of trimming it was off in the air. Very easy to fly, very stable hovering, incredible performance for a nano coax and so easy on the eye. For my purpose, the perfect trainer and extremely forgiving. Crashing frequently on the first few batteries did not harm it a bit, neither took the furniture it hit any scratches. A pice of beautiful engineering with only one minor drawback, the battery charger does not come with an AC adapter and must be charged from AA batteries. Cheap considering the price point of the package, and expensive considering you get only about 20 charges out of a set of batteries. Well, the fun you will have with this incredible little heli will get you over the extra investment of the adapter as you will want a second battery anyway to keep it up in the air.

Have fun.

I have owned this for a couple of weeks now. It is fun and easy to fly. It will hover with ease. I use a Spectrum 5ex bind to the 5 in 1 board. It is good for small rooms but will be better with larger rooms. The reason for this is that it does move forward at a good pace so you have to watch and turn it quickly before you hit the wall. Happy flying!!

Ok, so I've purchased 2 Syma S107s, a Blade MCX, a Blade MSR, and this Blade MCX2 all in the last 3 weeks. I can tell you with certainty that this is the most stable, consistent, and resilient of all the Blade micros. While not nearly as sturdy as the Syma, it will take a beating. It's easy to control, and quite quick for a Coaxial heli. The MCX was a definite upgrade from the Syma from a speed and performance standpoint, but isn't as sturdy as the MCX2 and not even close to the Syma. From a speed and performance perspective:

The MCX is 2-3 times faster and 10 times more responsive than the Syma
The MCX2 is 2 times faster than the MCX
and
The MSR is an angry hornet on crack. Buy spare parts. or a spare MSR.

I'm liking the MCX2 for indoor use. It's a blast!

My advice: Start with a Syma S107. It's very easy to learn, is very durable. and only costs $20. Once you are fully comfortable flying it, move up to the mCX2. Among the advantages of the mCX2 over the Syma is the use of radio control signals versus the microwave signals of the Symas; no television, fluorescent lights, or other interference.

I've flown rc planes for 15 years, up to and including 1/4 scale gasoline models. Two things I've learned are (1) Fly within your capabilities and (2) try out one new maneuver at a time; once that maneuver is solid, go on to a new maneuver. Practice! Practice! Practice!

I chose the bind & fly mCX2 because I already have a Spektrum transmitter, and familiarity helps. Also the Spektrum has a timer for your flights.

Compared with a Syma the mCX2 is a bit lighter, more powerful, adds side-to-side control, and has replaceable lipo batteries (get at least one spare battery so you can fly without waiting for a 40 minute charge).

I won't elaborate on the other positive reviews of the mCX2. I agree with most of them.

Care and feeding of the copter and lipo batteries: Let your battery and copter motors cool for at least 10 minutes between battery swaps and between and before charging and flying. If you already have are about to hit an obstacle, immediately pull the "throttle" to it's lowest setting (off) to minimize damage (true for Syma and mCX2). The copter will suffer less or no damage falling than under power with the rotors turning. Lipo batteries can be damaged or completely ruined if discharged (run) too low; either use a timer and always land immediately if you find yourself having to input more throttle than usual to maintain height/altitude.

Both the S107 and mCX2 are great fun. I continue to fly the S107 from time to time. Got S107's for my grandsons, ages 8 and 10, and I'm confident they'll learn to fly them successfully.

Have fun.
