Best "blade" ever built!,
= Durability: = Fun: = Educational:
This review is from: Blade mCX BNF (Toy)
I have one of these little guys. First off, some back story.
I had originally purchased a RTF model that had some problems. Contacted E-flite explained the issue to them, and they exchanged my original with a new unit. So thats a plus for the company right there. The unit they sent back was a BNF model.
I use my CX2's LP5DSM to control my MCX, and its a HUGE improvement over it's original. If you purchase a MCX, I would suggest using your CX controller if you have one. Binding your MCX to another remote is easy as 1,2,3.
Unit flies very stable, and is VERY impact resistant. I suggest the following for first time heli users. Purchase extra mounting rings (EFLH2226) and a space inner shaft/upper hub (EFLH2212) encase of hard crashes. The inner shaft / hub for these go out of stock a good deal, so if you can pick up an extra. Odds are you'll need it sooner or later.
Fun to fly, easy to learn on your way to bigger helicopters. However, odds are even after you upgrade this will be your favorite.
