Like the original Blade mCX, the Blade mCX2 is easy enough for anyone to fly and small enough to fly just about anywhere. The mCX2 has the same coaxial, counter-rotating rotor head design as the current mCX, 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 is the ultimate beginner friendly machine with unsurpassed stability, incredible control, and extreme durability.
With a factory-installed 5-in-1 control unit with Spektrum 2.4GHz DSM2 compatible receiver, main motor ESCs, mixer, gyro, and fully-proportional servos come pre-installed. Freedom from frequency restrictions and great control are ensured with the MLP4DSM 4-channel 2.4Ghz Spektrum technology equipped transmitter. The Blade mCX2’s ultra-micro size and weight 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.

What a great decision. The Syma S107 and most "toy" helicopters are three channels, while "real" helicopters have four channels and require different control inputs. The mCX2 is light, stable as sin, and has dual-rate controls. As long as you start flying with the transmitter set to low rate (not the power-on default), the learning curve is easy. I've crashed this helicopter only a few times (mostly by trying crazy maneuvers). It's durable; I see a number of reviews saying that people have broken their mCX2, and I cannot fathom how. Perhaps they're new, running it in high-rate mode and smashing it into things. Mine is still going strong, although I'll be replacing the flybar and rotor blades one of these days, since I have run it into the ceiling or walls a couple of times.
This is another reason to go with this helicopter. Unlike smaller "toy" helicopters like the Syma S107, this one is designed to be taken apart and having it parts replaced/upgraded. Which means the helicopter can grow with you. I've started flying it in the default high-rate mode after just a few weeks of flying, and it has even more options - adjustable swashplate and replacement tailboom for even more performance options.
Then when I am ready, I can step up to the next level of Blade helicopter. Before I do, I'll buy a standalone transmitter and start buying BNF (Bind-and-Fly) versions, rather than RTF (Ready-to-Fly) versions, so that I don't wind up with a big stack of transmitters as I acquire more helicopters.
All in all, this is a great helicopter to learn on. I don't know if it's an ideal very first helicopter, but it's definitely the right first "real" helicopter after flying "toy" helicopters.
Battery life is also pretty great with the included 150mAh battery (this used to come with a 120mAh battery; they changed it at some point). I get 6-8 minutes per flight from a full charge. On that note, the charger that comes with it is designed to use either 4AA batteries or an optional AC adapter (E-Flite AC to 6VDC 1.5-Amp Power Supply EFLC1005). They really should have included the AC adapter; the AA batteries will run down pretty quickly. I bought the AC adapter :)
One final note: The instruction manual that came with mine was out of date (dated 2010). There's a newer one available on Blade's website (dated 2012). It's not much different, but the newer manual better explains the Low Voltage Cutoff (LVC) mode, where the mCX2 goes into a "safe" landing mode if the battery runs down too far.
Edit (May 12, 2013):
Well, I finally managed to break something. I've started flying in high-rate mode, and it turns out that it's reasonably easy to lose control if you're spinning it too quickly. For the most part, this thing is durable as sin; I've crashed a whole bunch with no damage (the battery does move; need to reset it after a crash to keep the center of gravity in the right place). But once I lost control and it hit the wall hard enough to break the flybar. From my earlier experiences with they Syma S107, I knew to have extra flybar and rotors, and it took me just about 30 seconds to replace the flybar and get back to flying. I didn't even have to adjust the trim (I did have to loosen the screw; I'd overtightened it when I reinstalled it, and hence the flybar wasn't swinging freely). As I said in my initial review, I don't understand what people who complain that the mCX2 is fragile are doing to theirs.
Also... Try LOW RATES, as described in the manual, for even easier first maneuvers. Have fun, and don't scare the pets too much!
