Really enjoy flying. Flies great!
Not a beginner level unless you plan on rebuilding each time.
Equipment all worked well.
Have to make sure batteries are readily available to replenish supply.
Repair parts usually available at local hobby store or online.
No, it doesn't have the sexy flybarless head. But look at what you get for what it costs. In the Blade world, this costs the same as the flybarless 130 sized heli.
This heli comes reasonably well rigged, and is ready to fly out of the box with a normal going over. The stock wood blades are not high performance, but they splinter easily on impact and save the head from damage. I'd suggest you buy similar replacements since they do a great job of protecting the head in a crash.
Its got plenty of power and I'm getting over 6 min of flight doing basic sport flying. Stability is best described as neutral in all 3 axis-es. If you roll, pitch or yaw it, it stays where you put it until you put in opposite input. Its just solid in the air and is pretty unaffected by wind.
Finally, its a Blade. This means that it won't have all the fancy aluminum in the head. Thats a plus if you are learning. With aluminum, you have to diagnose if a part is bent after a ccrash and determine if it is causing the heli to handle improperly. With plastic, the part either breaks or springs back to its original shape. Simple. Also, parts are cheap and readily available both online and at local hobby shops. Also, Blade has pretty good on-line and phone support. I prefer phone, they allow you to leave a call back number after a minute or two on hold, then a few minutes later someone calls you back when its your turn in the queue.
Overall, this is a good solid purchase if you are looking for a solid heli on a budget, without a lot of bling, but with a lot of performance and substance.
