Blade CX3

Blade CX3

Horizon Hobby has a new Blade CX3 coaxial helicopter available for pre-order. Besides a new MD 520N scale NOTAR fuselage it also uses the Spektrum AR6100e receiver. Hopefully they have improved the drift issues of the CX and CX2. Horizon says it is “compatible with most Blade CX2 option parts.”

Blade mCX

Blade mCX

Horizon Hobby released the Blade mCX at the end of 2008. It is a tiny coaxial helicopter only 8″ long and weighing only 1 oz. We have seen many tiny helis before and they have all been terrible so we expected the same from the mCX. We could not have been more wrong! The Blade mCX flies even better than its larger CX2 sibling. It is an amazingly stable and well mannered helicopter and easily the best choice for newcomers to the hobby. Veterans will also enjoy it for indoor flying and precision flying competitions with friends. (more…)
