Product Description

Weighing in at under one ounce, the nimble Blade® mSR RTF takes ultra micro helicopter performance to the next level. It comes from the factory completely assembled and flight tested with everything you need to get flying. At the heart of the Blade mSR’s design is a Bell-Hiller rotor head that provides the kind of speed and agility you would expect of a single-rotor heli but maintains a measure of positive stability similar to a coaxial heli. This blend of agility and stability makes it the ideal “next step” for someone moving up from a coaxial heli, such as the Blade CX3 or Blade mCX.

For single-rotor ultra micro heli excitement you can fly almost anywhere, the Blade mSR simply can’t be beat.

E-flite markets the mSR as the "next step ultra-micro heli for coaxial pilots" (taken from the mSR's box). While this is true in most ways, if you are new to this hobby or have only flown Syma s107s, AirHogs, etc. you should read on because as good as the mSR is, and it is great, there's some information you should have before investing the time and money necessary to make this bird fun. For reference I had very little experience with helicopters beyond 3ch/gyro helis like the syma s107.

First, I should clear up the concept of indoor. This heli is indoor in the sense that it can't fly well in any sort of wind. Sure, proficient pilots can fly it outside, and people modify the mSR for outdoor flight but if your proficient/modder you're not reading this review. The mSR isn't much bigger than a syma s107 and weighs about the same amount. But unlike any coaxial heli the mSR is INSANELY FAST. You almost can't appreciate how fast this thing is until you experience it. People routinely fly helis like this in gyms because you need that much room to really take advantage of the heli's capabilities. After the first few weeks of frustrating crashes I really thought I had made a mistake and was wishing I had bought the mCX2 instead. And if you are a prospective buyer you should take a minute to consider this alternate possibility. The mCX2 is much faster than a Syma 107, is four channel, etc. and it is controllable for a novice. If you aren't going to progress to the money pit known as collective pitch helicopters, or CP, this is likely what you want. This bears repeating. The mSR is incredibly fast and capable. Sure you can slow it down to the point that it can buzz around from room to room but if that's your goal, why suffer through the learning process of a single rotor heli?

Perfect if you're just starting out.

This thing is small: slightly bigger than a man's hand. This is a big advantage, since if you're just learning how to fly these things (heck even if you've been flying them for a while), you're gonna crash it often. But since there's not much heft to this thing, it's actually hard to damage.

A lot of folks when they get into this hobby buy a much bigger and more expensive helicopter, but they just end up crashing them all the time in the beginning, as everybody does. Even if money's no object for you, that will still mean you're going to be heading off to the repair shop after nearly every flight.

But this one -- man! You can smack it into walls, trees, chairs, etc., and it usually doesn't get damaged. If it does, you're looking at $5 or $10 to replace this part or that.

Another advantage of starting with a small one like this is that, once you get your Ming vase out of the way, you can fly it indoors. With the larger ones, you're going to have to wait for a calm day. And when I say calm, I mean, eerie, Twilight Zone levels of stillness.

Trust me: start with the tiny ones. You'll know when you're ready to graduate.

I got into this hobby about 3 weeks ago. I started with a couple of Syma S107's and fell in love. I ordered a Blade MCX and an MSR on the same day I got the Symas. After they came in, I fired up the MCX and ran through a couple of batteries. Really nice compared to the Symas from a performance perspective.

Then I fired up the MSR.

The Syma is fairly slow and easy to control.

The MCX is about 2-3 times faster than the Syma, and not nearly as easy to control as it has 4 channels.

The Blade MSR is an angry hornet on crack.

I didn't read the manual. I hadn't heard about 'beginner mode'. When the MSR lifts, it quivers like its gonna explode in midair. The little motors on this thing are literally screaming. It was like it was begging me to punch the throttle. So I did. This thing took off like a bat out of heck, and before I even realized what was happening it had gone *splat* against a wall 40 feet away from where it started. I picked it up, inspected it (nothing broken -- amazing) and sat it on my kitchen table. I then decided that maybe it was a good time to read the manual.

I strongly suggest starting out in beginner mode. After powering everything on, press down on the right stick until you hear a beep, and the center light on the transmitter is flashing. Now you're in beginner mode, and in this mode, it's only about 5 times faster than an MCX, 10-15 times faster than a Syma. Seriously - in beginner mode.

In performance mode, it wouldn't surprise me at all if this thing could hit 25mph when banking. Sound slow? Consider having something moving that fast INSIDE YOUR HOUSE.

Responsiveness... When you tell an MSR to go, it really goes. It reacts quickly and instantly.

To begin with, yes, this is the "new" RTF kit, which does NOT have the 4-slot Celectra battery charger and extra LiPo. It still has everything that you need to get in the air (helicopter, 1 LiPo, single-slot charger, radio, AA batteries), but it's unfortunate that E-Flite downgraded the kit, because as soon as you run out of juice you'll want to get right back in the air! I strongly recommend picking up several more LiPos for the bird and a 6V power adapter for the charger (otherwise you'll be going through a lot of AAs).

I see that Amazon or the vendor have finally changed the image, so hopefully this won't confuse any more people.

I am a novice flyer, having only ever flown one of those 3-channel coax toy helicopters before, and that only briefly. So, between some netizens saying that the mSR was insanely fast, and others saying that it was almost too stable, I wasn't quite sure what I would get.

Well, it turns out that it's both. Novices such as myself are well served by the "low" rate on the transmitter (hold down the right stick until the light starts flashing), which keeps things from getting too crazy in small spaces, but when I (briefly) tried the high rate...man, this thing can cook. Even on low mode, I recommend getting out of ground effect quickly, as its stability is less than optimal if you're within about a rotors' distance of the floor. Once you're in the air, though, the helicopter hovers quite well indeed. By the time I'd gone through my fourth battery I was cheerfully landing on the kitchen counter and swooping down on the cats (haven't quite managed to herd them yet, but I'll keep trying).

If you give yourself enough space, it really is amazing what this helicopter will recover from...
